Russian President nonchalant over USA alleged meddling

Special counsel Robert Mueller continues to investigate the possibility of collusion between Russian Federation and the president's campaign.

"So what if they're Russians?" Putin said of the indictment. "There are 146 million Russians".

"I could not care less because they do not represent the state", he said, adding that Russian Federation would not extradite them. "I couldn't care less.They do not represent the interests of the Russian state".

Former President Barack Obama's cyber response team reportedly wanted to strike back hard at Russian Federation when they first learned of its election meddling in the summer of 2016. "Maybe they're not even Russians..."

Last week, Putin told Washington to send him hard evidence that his citizens meddled in U.S. elections, mocking accusations to date as "yelling and hollering in the United States Congress". Give us a document. "And we'll take a look at it".

US intelligence agencies and many Western analysts have said that Russian interference came at the orders of the Kremlin.

In 2008, Putin became prime minister but maintained his grip on power, with his protege Dmitry Medvedev serving as president until 2012 when Putin returned to the Kremlin in the face of huge opposition protests.

"Could anyone really believe that Russian Federation, thousands of miles away, influenced the outcome of the election? Doesn't that sound ridiculous even to you?" he said. Putin said. "It's not our goal to interfere". This is ethnic nationalism, and it is similar to how Trump sees America - where white Christians are the "real Americans", and people of color, and immigrants are consistently treated as second-class, inferior, or the "other".

AC Milan v Arsenal
It is not only Arsenal's defenders who struggle when they leave the relatively safe confines of the Emirates Stadium. AC Milan are a team that is playing well and it seems like everything the manager is trying is working.

United Kingdom holds high-level meeting on poisoning of ex-Russian spy
Britain has said it will respond robustly if evidence shows Russian Federation was behind the Salisbury poisoning. Officers also sealed off the gravestone of Mr Skripal's wife Liudmila, who was buried there in 2012.

"This is the worst form of antisemitism", said Shai.

"The time will come when the political elite in the United States will be pushed by public opinion to move in this direction".

"Maybe the Jews meddled in the USA elections". It's a lot of experts who understand Putin and Trump and the relationship between the two. But he also did not deny Russian interference.

"[Putin] said he absolutely did not meddle in our election". Putin asked NBC interviewer Megyn Kelly. Putin asked in an often-combative interview with NBC News aired late on March 9. "Engaging in mutual accusations and insults, this is a road to nowhere".

Putin told Kelly that he does not read Trump's tweets and avoids Twitter himself.

A former senior Obama administration official involved in White House deliberations on Russian Federation has since said: "I feel like we sort of choked". "Well, Donald is a more modern person", the Russian leader told the journalist. "It's up to the Russian voters", he said. "You made a decision, at the level of parliament, at the level of Congress and put Russian Federation on your list of enemies", he said. Are we the ones who imposed sanctions on the United States?

Putin also slammed the crippling sanctions the USA has imposed on Moscow in light of the activity.
