Vladimir Putin ridicules claims of Russian meddling in United States presidential vote

Patriotic Russians may have hacked election, says Putin

Mr Trump recently reaffirmed the US's commitment to the military alliance during his first foreign trip overseas as president after once saying the organisation was "obsolete".

Kelly was moderating a panel discussion featuring Putin at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, and was scheduled to conduct a sit-down interview with him later in the day.

Mr Putin said that he views North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as an instrument of American foreign policy, and that he has been concerned by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military infrastructure edging closer to Russian borders.

Speaking at an economic forum in St. Petersburg, Putin says that the claims contained "nothing concrete, only assumptions".

Thursday, Putin suggested that free-spirited Russians hackers, behaving more like artists than espionage agents, could have broken into the Democratic National Committee computers. "That's how we can fight terrorism", Modi said. "We people do not have the right to take more than necessary from the nature", he said. Trump has similarly accused Democrats of politicizing congressional and federal investigations into the interference.

"But it turned out that he was right", Putin said.

Putin on Friday also echoed a popular talking point of Trump's, that investigations into ties with Russian Federation is a fake story put forth by Democrats bitter they lost the election.

US intelligence agencies have accused Russian Federation of hacking into Democratic Party emails, helping US President Donald Trump's election victory, and the congressional and FBI investigations into the Trump campaign's ties with Russian Federation have broken the Kremlin's hopes for a detente with Washington. He's paid for holding meetings, discussing current affairs. "There were no agreements".

Putin said the attack was a provocation meant to put the blame on the Syrian ruler, insisting that "Assad didn't use those weapons".

Mr Trump sparked worldwide outrage when he announced that the United States would withdraw from the deal, which his predecessor's administration had made a priority and played a lead role in creating.

"This is disinformation", Putin said through a translator, saying there was no "proof" Russian Federation was responsible.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that his United States counterpart Donald Trump should not have withdrawn from the Paris Climate Accord as it is of a "framework nature".

Trump earlier in the day said the USA was withdrawing from the Paris climate change deal, agreed by more than 190 nations.

"Does squabbling over North Atlantic Treaty Organisation help Russian Federation?" he said.

"Now, we could blame this all on American imperialism, that it's all their fault", he continued.
