Putin says its complete nonsense that Russia meddled in U.S. election

President Vladimir Putin called an alleged influence on the U.S. 2016 election by Russia a “total nonsense”. Speaking in a live TV question-and-answer marathon, he said that possible Russian interference in the U.S. election process “can only be called a joke”. Putin, who easily won re-election in March, has used the annual phone-in with citizens to cast himself as a decisive troubleshooter on the home front and a staunch defender of Russia’s interests on the world stage. In April, the United States imposed sanctions on some of Russia’s biggest companies and businessmen, striking at allies of Putin to punish Moscow for its alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and other “malign activities”.
