Vladimir Putin denies interfering in the United States election

"I am not aware of such a proposal", Putin said referring to Kushner's alleged proposal. "No proposal like that came to me". There can even be hackers, by the way, in the United States who very skillfully and professionally shifted the blame, as we say, onto Russian Federation.

But even though Kelly managed to ask all the right questions, her approach toward the same has been criticized by many who expected her to get Putin to open up more than he did, during the interview. But she said Trump wanted to allow for a "swift and thorough examination of the facts" related to Comey's ouster and the multiple investigations into his campaign's possible ties to Russian Federation.

Putin also said that his nation had no channels of communication with the campaigns of either Trump or Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, but that there may have been official contacts, which he called a "standard diplomatic practice".

Putin was equally abrasive when Kelly asked if his government had compromising information on President Trump, referring to an alleged dossier that was collected prior to the election. Do you think that from all over the world or from the United States the ambassador reports to me every day who he meets with or what they discuss there? I didn't even really talk to him.

Putin said he had talked about the allegations with former President Barack Obama and with several other officials, adding: "No one ever showed me any direct evidence".

When players streak on the field, security looks on, we all look on, some of us laugh, but way too many feel downright miserable. Therefore, ahead of every clash between the arch-rivals, often during a world tournament, there was context and anticipation.

He said if there had been anything interesting to come out of the meeting, his foreign minister would have reported it to him. "There weren't even any reports" the Russian president said cited by Bloomberg. There was not even any kind of specific discussions about sanctions or anything else. The segment began with Kelly drilling Putin onstage at a St. Petersburg economic forum about Russian hacking during the presidential campaign.

Putin also claimed he hardly spoke at all with former U.S. National Security Adviser Michael Flynn when they sat together at a Moscow dinner in 2015, NBC News quoted the Kremlin leader as saying.

US intelligence agencies have concluded that Putin ordered the disruption of the election.

You and I, you and I personally, have a much closer relationship than I had with Mr. Flynn.

"I made my speech".

Several other polls are due to published before voters go to the polls on Thursday. "People want to be connected to this election more than ever before", said Ms.

"I will tell you something that you most likely know about", he went on.

Mr Flynn was sacked in February after misleading the White House over his Russian links and has declined to testify to the Senate intelligence committee.

Putin told Kelly that the dinner where the two met was routine. "You created a sensation out of nothing", he said.

As expected, Russian political observers were watching Putin's latest United States media appearance very closely. The pair met on the sidelines of the APEC summit in Peru in November, weeks after Trump's upset election win. Putin said he didn't even know Flynn had anything to do with USA intelligence services until afterward.

"Point your finger to any spot on the world's map, everywhere you'll hear complaints that American officials interfere in their political domestic processes". I am not trying to ask you how are things with democracy in the United States.
