On July 16, Russian President Vladimir Putin reiterated at a joint press conference with his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump that Moscow had not meddled in election processes in the United States and was ready to cooperate with Washington within a joint working group on cyber security.
But Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday that the letter has not yet been examined by the Kremlin.
"I was honored to deliver a letter from President Trump to President Vladimir Putin's administration", the senator from Kentucky wrote on Twitter.
"I was honoured to deliver a letter from President Trump to President Vladimir Putin's administration".
The publication says that page is under the secrecy was in the editor from the Russians, "who have received them from officials in Russia, who said that the document Putin gave the Tramp".
At the time, uncertainty about what Mr Trump and Mr Putin discussed during the private meeting in which members of the press were also banished from caused a stir. At a joint press conference, Trump refused to condemn Putin and cast doubt on the US intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.
"At Senator Paul's request, President Trump provided a letter of introduction".
But Peskov said the Kremlin had not familiarized itself with the contents.

The tweet set off a flurry of speculation, given the controversy sparked by a Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki last month.
The president later corrected some of his remarks, saying he misspoke.
The Kentucky Republican met with members of the Russian parliament's upper house who serve on the foreign affairs committee Monday. He (Paul) is interested in leglislative [sic] exchanges, parliamentary dialogue and cultural and educational exchange programs, increased counter-terrorism co-operation, building on recent successes like the disruption of the St. Petersburg plot and resolution of the military conflicts in Syria and Ukraine.
The topics that Paul said were included in the letter are things Paul wished to discuss with Putin, not topics Trump asked him to raise with Putin, the official told CNN.
The draft of the order viewed by the Post would allow the US government to impose sanctions on any foreign individual or entity that sticks their nose in a USA election.
Paul's colleagues in the Senate from both parties introduced legislation last week to impose strict new sanctions on Russian Federation. A reported text of the draft bill published on Wednesday sent Russia's rouble to lows against the dollar last seen in April.
