President Vladimir Putin on Friday ridiculed allegations of Russian meddling in US elections, accusing the Democrats of trying to shift blame for their defeat and likening the accusations against Russia to anti-Semitism.
Facing questions from NBC’s Megyn Kelly, who moderated a panel discussion at St. Petersburg’s economic forum, Putin said the claims of Russian interference in the US election contained “nothing concrete, only assumptions.”
He added that while watching the US campaign unfold, he would sometimes think that Trump was going “over the top.”
On Friday, Russian President Vladimir became visibly irritated when NBC News propagandist Megyn Kelly grilled him over allegations that Russia hacked the DNC and helped Donald Trump win the election using a line of questioning that sounded as though it came straight out of the Democrat-media complex conspiracy handbook.
There was more. Amber Athey reported that Putin ripped his earpiece out a second time as Kelly continued to grill him like a criminal suspect.
Putin and Modi’s warm relationship as exhibited in St. Petersburg combined with the recent visibly friendly atmosphere between the Russian and Chinese leaders during the recent One Belt–One Road Forum in Beijing, means that each country is on the correct path towards increasing partnership and cooperation.
