Putin Mocks Claims of Russian 'Fingerprints' in US Election Inteference Case

At the same time, the Russian President pointed out that "it was possible not to withdraw from the Paris agreement because it is a framework document so the US's obligations could have been changed".

Putin, speaking at an economic forum in St. Petersburg moderated by NBC's Megyn Kelly, said the probe into Russia's alleged attempts to influence the election via collusion with President Trump's campaign team was merely "hysteria", Reuters reported. "I quoted from 5000-year-old Vedas to say humans have a right to milk the nature but have no right to exploit it", he told the gathering in the presence of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"What fingerprints? Hoof prints?"

IP addresses allegedly belonging to Russian hackers - he said those could have been rigged and would not stand as credible evidence.

He said that the Democrats should have simply agreed that they had failed to attract voters.

President Vladimir Putin ridiculed the 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.

Many people wondered if the new policy would even work out given Trump's penchant to go on extensive Twitter rants. The White House announced the departure of Mike Dubke, the communications director of the Trump administration.

Putin also said that United States' intelligence agencies blaming Russian Federation for the interference "reminds me of anti-Semitism and blaming the Jews".

U.S. intelligence agencies have accused Russian Federation of hacking into Democratic Party emails, helping Donald Trump's election victory, and congressional and FBI investigations into the Trump campaign's ties with Russian Federation have broken the Kremlin's hopes for a detente with Washington. When I was in Germany I had said that Paris or no Paris.

He described the focus on Kislyak's contacts as "catastrophic nonsense".

Allegations by USA intelligence agencies that Putin became personally involved in a covert hacking campaign meant to harm Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and give an advantage to Republican nominee Donald Trump will be one of the main topics on the agenda.

He said "someone sitting on their bed who weighs 400 pounds" could have been behind the hacks. Putin added that USA participation is essential for the success of global efforts. "We have set 175 GW target", he said.

Putin also said that allegations there had been a secret deal between Moscow and Trump before his inauguration as USA president were "hysteria".
