US Department of State number two John Sullivan is expected to be nominated as the new ambassador to Russian Federation, a sensitive position given Donald Trump's mixed relations with Moscow.

"It's hard to understand what this is about right now", Interfax quoted Zakharova as saying.

His remarks came after The New York Times reported that Trump was expected to name Sullivan to the diplomatic post, coming at a sensitive time in U.S. -Russia relations. The G7 starts in four days in France.

Trump said he would support if another group member would propose to restore Russia's membership, suspended in 2014 after his predecessor Barack Obama blamed Moscow for the crisis in Ukraine.

Trump has repeatedly called for closer ties with Moscow and it's a move he backed previous year.

"I could certainly" support that, he told reporters at the White House, just days before a G7 summit - minus Russian Federation - in Biarritz, France.

"It was the G8 for a long time, and now it's the G7", the president stated throughout a White Home assembly with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis.

Trump is due to host the next G7 meeting in the United States next year.

First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Foreign Affairs Vladimir Dzhabarov, speaking to Vestnik Kavkaza, noted that G7 countries are extremely interested in returning to the G8 format with Russia's participation.

Trump's comments underscore the divide between the U.S., under his administration, and Washington's traditional closest allies. Our president said that we we don't refuse any contacts, and if no conditions are set, this proposal can be considered.
