Former US President Bush slams Putin for alleged non-mutual political attitude

Former US President Bush slams Putin for alleged non-mutual political attitude

Speaking at a summit in Abu Dhabi, the first sitting USA president to visit the UAE in 2008, Bush had plenty to say. "Whether they affected the outcome is another question, but they meddled and that's unsafe for a democracy".

He also said it isn't clear if the meddling affected the outcome of the election but that it's "problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system". "Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results", he later added.

President Donald Trump, whom the Russians tried to help get elected, has frequently hedged on whether he thinks Russia interfered on his behalf.

Bush then went on to criticize Putin as a "zero-sum" world leader with a "chip on his shoulder... because the demise of the Soviet Union troubles him". That is why most of his actions aim at the return of Soviet hegemony.

Bush indicted Russian Federation of meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.
