Putin urges end to 'harmful chatter' over Russian meddling

Facing questions from NBC's Megyn Kelly, who moderated Friday's panel discussion at St. Petersburg's economic forum, Putin said the claims of Russian interference in the US election contained "nothing concrete, only assumptions".

While participating in a panel discussion at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum on Friday, Putin compared the U.S.' repeated claims that Russians tried to interfere in the presidential election to anti-Semitism.

He seemed to be referring to the conclusion of United States intelligence agencies that Russian Federation tried to interfere in last year's presidential election via hacking of the Democratic National Committee and a top Clinton campaign official.

"We don't feel here that the temperature is getting hotter", he said.

He was addressing the media yesterday at the end of the 18th Annual India Russia Summit where he met Russian President Vladmir Putin. "That of course worries us", Putin said.

The US intelligence agencies say the hacking of the US Democrats a year ago bore the hallmarks of Russian state security services. And as the former head of the KGB, we have to take him at his word.

Trump's Paris Withdrawal Cedes Global Leadership to China
The United States, exceeded only by China in greenhouse gas emissions, accounts for more than 15 percent of the worldwide total. US mayors also voiced their criticism of Trump's decision, vowing to recommit to local efforts to curb climate change.

Friedman also questioned whether moves by the US Senate to impose new sanctions could succeed without enjoying the full executive support of President Donald Trump, who has made no statement in support of imposing additional sanctions.

He added that while watching the US campaign unfold, he would sometimes think that Trump was going "over the top". What's an ambassador supposed to do?

The Kremlin took a dim view of Mrs Clinton, considering her far less friendly towards Russian Federation than Mr Donald Trump would be because of her blunt criticism of Mr Putin and his policies in Syria and elsewhere. "It will if it leads to NATO's breakup, but we aren't seeing any such breakup yet".

Kushner met with the ambassador, Sergei Kislyak, in early December, and suggested establishing a secure communications line between the Kremlin and Trump officials at a Russian diplomatic facility, according to US officials who reviewed intelligence reports describing Kislyak's account.

Trump's move drives another wedge between the United States and its traditional European allies, while aligning its stance closer to Russian Federation in boosting fossil fuels while deferring action to curb climate change.

Only Syria and Nicaragua are non-participants in the 195-nation accord agreed in Paris in 2015. "That is not proof", Putin told Kelly.
