Russian President nonchalant over U.S. alleged meddling

Susan Rice reportedly issued stand down order to NSC officials in response to Russian hacking

In the interview with Kelly, Putin called the US president "a businessman with vast experience" and "a quick study" despite being new to politics.

It comes after the USA charged thirteen Russians and three Russian companies for alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

"Maybe they have dual citizenship or a green card, maybe the USA paid them for this".

Putin said Moscow could not prosecute anyone for the alleged meddling because no evidence has been presented showing that Russian law has been violated. "There are 146 million Russians". So what. I don't care. "I couldn't care less".

Russian President Vladimir Putin is ready to cooperate with the opposition if it tries to strengthen the country. Putin asked in an often-combative interview with NBC News aired late on March 9.

"Give us an official request", he added. But he also did not deny Russian interference.

The Russian president also cast his own country as the victim of punishing USA sanctions. The U.S. believes Syrian president Bashar al-Assad is responsible for the attacks, attacks Putin claimed are impossible because according to him, Russian Federation rid Syria of all its chemical weapons long ago.

USA intelligence chiefs last month said Russian attempts to meddle in United States politics are continuing unabated - and pose a threat to mid-term congressional elections in November. "Doesn't that sound ridiculous even to you?" he said.

Putin claimed that the United States interferes in Russian elections "all the time" but that it was "impossible for us" to do the same.

Putin said Russian Federation has neither the tools nor the will to meddle in elections.

Trump himself has repeatedly refused to condemn Russian Federation over the alleged meddling, and has said he admires Putin as a strong leader.

"He understands that if it is necessary to establish a cooperative relationship with someone, then you have to treat your current or potential partner with respect", Putin said. Putin said, according to an NBC translator, when asked about the Russian individuals and Russian-owned companies that were indicted last month by special counsel Robert Mueller. "Well, Donald is a more modern person", the Russian leader told the journalist.
