Putin denies allegations of Kremlin-directed Russian meddling in United States election

Human rights campaigners have compiled a dossier detailing the scale of Vladimir Putin's 'authoritarian rule. The dossier details 50 laws which campaigners say severely restrict democracy and opposition in the country

"Why have you decided the Russian authorities, myself included, gave anybody permission to do this?" asked Putin in the interview.

Last month Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies for allegedly backing Trump's campaign, maligning his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and engaging in other election interference. When asked about the indictments filed against Russian citizens, he replied: "Maybe they are not even Russians, but Ukrainians, Tatars or Jews, but with Russian citizenship".

Jews with Russian citizenship could have been behind interference in the 2016 USA presidential election, President Vladimir Putin said.

In 2016, Vladimir Putin ordered nuclear war drill involving 40 million Russians and 200,000 specialist rescue units. "I couldn't care less because they do not represent the government". "I couldn't care less.They do not represent the interests of the Russian state". It's unlikely to have been a coincidence that so many mass media platforms all had the same incorrect understanding of President Putin's words, strongly suggesting that there's an uncertain degree of narrative coordination going on between them behind the scenes, the intent of which can only be speculated as seeking to fan the flames of discord between the USA and Russian Federation in order to reversely "justify" the Trump Administration's massive military budget and alliance with the military-industrial complex. "And we'll take a look at it".

Israeli lawmaker Ksenia Svetlova quickly called on Israel to condemn Putin's "harsh" comments, saying that "if Israel does not defend the Jewish people, no one will, according to Haaretz".

"Could anyone really believe that Russian Federation, thousands of miles away, influenced the outcome of the election?"

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein answers a question after announcing that the office of special counsel Robert Mueller announced a grand jury has charged 13 Russian nationals and several Russian entities, on February 16, 2018, in Washington. "Doesn't that sound ridiculous even to you?" he said. If there is this decision to destroy Russian Federation then we have a legal right to respond'.

"I have other ways of expressing my point of view or implementing a decision", the Kremlin leader said.

Putin just used Megan Kelly, nine days before his re-election (he can not lose) to tell his own people Tatars and Jews living in Russia with Russian citizenship are not Russians.

Kelly listed some of the accusations of Russian interference made by Mueller's office and other United States officials, including the spreading of false information online.

Intelligence officials said initially that they could not respond until they had a clearer picture of the scale and scope of Russia's interference. During the interview, Putin also said that his United States counterpart has "leadership qualities" as "he takes responsibility when he makes decisions".

Trump himself has repeatedly refused to condemn Russian Federation over the alleged meddling, and has said he admires Putin as a strong leader.
