Unlike others, Putin doesn't criticize Trump over decision

Vladimir Putin compared allegations that Russian Federation hacked the Democratic National Committee to anti-Semitism at a Friday panel at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum.

Putin, on the other hand, said that he would not judge Trump's decision.

"Don't worry, be happy", Putin said in English. Putin quipped on Friday when he was asked for his reaction at an economic forum in St Petersburg.

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

The FBI is now investigating Russian influence on the presidential election and any possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Moscow. "Nothing more. If there is something specific, concrete, we could discuss that".

The Latest on St. Petersburg economic forum (all times local): 5:05 p.m. President Vladimir Putin has ridiculed the US focus on the Russian ambassador's contacts with members of President Donald Trump's team, saying that the envoy was only doing his job.

"They can even be hackers, by the way, in the United States, who very skillfully and professionally shifted the blame, as we say, on to Russian Federation".

Snowden, 33, was given asylum in Russian Federation in 2013 after leaking classified information about US spy operations.

When she was told that she would have to give a speech during the closing ceremonies Friday, she said it wouldn't be a problem. Ananya was crowned the victor of the 90th instance of the erudite tournament after she spelled 35 words correctly.

US intelligence officials have said Russian Federation tried to interfere in the USA election by hacking the Democratic Party to sway the vote in favour of Donald Trump, a charge the Kremlin has repeatedly denied.

Putin, who is keen to fix battered US-Russia relations and is expected to meet Trump for the first time at the G20 in Hamburg in July, said Trump had simply run a better campaign and better connected with voters than Clinton.

"We've had enough", Putin added.

Asked if he could offer any advice to Trump, Putin said it would be "counterproductive" to give advice to a political counterpart and added that "a person like President Trump doesn't need any advice, especially if it comes to political issues".

He underlined the importance of the Paris climate accord, but noted that it's a framework agreement offering a broad room for maneuver for each signatory nation.

Speaking at an economic forum in St. Petersburg, Putin said relations between Moscow and Washington are now at their lowest point since Cold War times.

Backing India, Russian President Vladimir Putin also said that terrorism is a common threat and called for a united fight against the menace.

Touching on tensions in the Pacific, Putin said Russia's military deployments on a group of Pacific islands also claimed by Japan have been caused by concerns about the USA military buildup in the region.
