Salisbury spy scandal will not affect Russian presidential election

Russian President Vladimir Putin gave an order to shoot down a passenger plane he believed would be used in a terror attack at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, he said in a new documentary. "Maybe they are not even Russians but Ukrainians, Tatars or Jews, but with Russian citizenship, which should also be checked; maybe they have dual citizenship of a green card; maybe the US paid them for this". "But the USA refuses to work like this and instead throws 13 Russians to the media", he said, followed up by listing different ethnicities in the 13 Russian nationals that would make them "not even Russian". Last month, special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for allegedly meddling in the 2016 presidential election, charging them with conspiracy to defraud the United States.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal of CT tweeted: "Repulsive Putin remark deserves to be denounced, soundly and promptly, by world leaders". "I am sure Vladimir Putin's results at the upcoming election will be slightly bigger than at the elections in 2012", Dmitry Gusev, president of the Bakster Group, told government-owned TASS news agency. "He should clarify his comments at the earliest opportunity", the AJC said in a tweet. Under the tsars, Jews faced restrictions on livelihoods and residences - and millions fled pogroms.

In the documentary titled "Putin", the Russian President told a reporter that he received a telephone call from a security officer on February 7, 2014 in which he was told that a plane en route from Ukraine to Istanbul was seized, captors demand landing in Sochi.

Groups such as Jews and the Tatars, a Turkic ethnic group, were routinely mistreated in the Soviet Union where Putin came of age.
