Speaking at a news conference on Tuesday, Putin dismissed a question whether he was disappointed in Trump as "naive."In comments carried by Russian news agencies, Putin said Trump is "not my bride, and I'm not his groom."Asked how Russia would feel if Trump were impeached, Putin said it would be "absolutely wrong" for Russia to discuss domestic U.S. politics:Russian officials cheered Trump when he was elected last year, and Putin praised him as someone who wanted to improve ties with Russia.

Starting in April, a top Russian cyber official, identified as Andrey Krutskikh, would meet with his U.S. counterpart to discuss "information security," according to the document.

A month later, the two countries would hold "special consultations" to discuss ongoing issues, including the Iran nuclear deal, Ukraine, Afghanistan and North Korea.

President Trump and Putin would reportedly have their first in-person meeting after the top national security leaders from both Russia and the U.S. met face-to-face, including the heads of U.S. agencies like the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the Pentagon.

The document also proposed reopening military and diplomatic channels that former President Obama had put in place during his first term in office.

Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, its military aggression within Ukraine's border and Putin's support for the Assad regime in Syria put a deep chill on relations between Washington and Moscow.

The Trump administration's relations with Russia are under great scrutiny as congressional committees and a special counsel probe the Russian interference in the U.S. 2016 election and potential ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
