Putin dismisses U.S. claims about Trump, election

During an interview with NBC News' Megyn Kelly, Russian President Vladimir Putin suggested that American hackers interfered in the 2016 US election and made it look like Russia was behind the hacking.

Russian President Vladimir Putin says he hardly spoke with former U.S. national security adviser Michael Flynn when they sat together at a Moscow dinner in 2015, according to United States media. "Is this possible? Theoretically, yes".

In an interview with Megyn Kelly of NBC News, the Russian leader denies having any relationship with Trump.

Abbas said the Palestinians "are committed to working with [Trump] to reach a historic peace deal between us and Israel". Trump is due to meet Pope Francis on Wednesday, becoming the 13th president to visit the Vatican.

The Russian president also accused the US and its allies of seeking to monopolize power and prevent the emergence of a multi-polar world by countering his country's efforts to assert itself on the global stage. "This is happening in no small part because of Russia's fight for its interests, its legitimate interests".

The clip aired on NBC Nightly News on Friday, and the full interview will air on Sunday on the premiere episode of Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly. "They can be in Russian Federation, in Asia ... even in America, Latin America", Putin said.

"That's it", Putin said, speaking through a translator.

In the NBC interview, Putin was asked about reports of Trump adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner's attempt to set up a secret communications channel with Russian Federation.

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc is engaged in the operation of retail, wholesale and other units in various formats around the world. The retailer assigns deliveries to associates in a way that minimizes the distance they collectively need to travel.

During the interview with NBC, Mr Putin also reportedly suggested the Central Intelligence Agency may have framed Russian Federation for the hacking. "I haven't seen, even once, any direct proof of Russian interference in the (U.S.) presidential election".

Mr Putin denied the hackers were from Russian Federation or swayed the USA election in favour of Donald Trump. For instance, Kelly asked about an episode first reported in The Washington Post, in which Jared Kushner - the president's son-in-law and senior adviser - suggested setting up a secret back-channel communication with the Kremlin before Trump took office. "I didn't even really talk to him [at the dinner]". "Not for the United States, but the leadership". Where would we get this information from? "That's the extent of my acquaintance with Mr. Flynn", he said. "You created a sensation out of nothing".

"We have a lot of Americans who visit us", Putin said. Putin asked, before saying: "Have you all lost your senses?"
