Putin: Blaming Russia For Interfering In Election Is 'Like Anti-Semitism'

You can't seem to stop.

"Maybe someone has a pill that will cure this hysteria", Putin added. Mr Trump said the deal would wipe out United States jobs, weaken American national sovereignty and put the country at a permanent disadvantage to others. The contacts have become the focus of an FBI investigation into possible collusion between Moscow and Trump's aides that has most recently centered on Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law.

The allegations of Russian interference in the presidential election were "harmful chatter" detrimental to global relations, security and the fight against terrorism, he said.

Commenting on the Syrian issue, the Russian president said that the conflict in the Middle East should "in no way be used as means to sort out [someone's] pressing political issues".

"It's easier to say we are not guilty, the Russians are guilty..."

"It reminds me of antisemitism - the Jews are to blame for everything".

President Vladimir Putin has ridiculed the USA focus on the Russian ambassador's contacts with members of President Donald Trump's team, saying that the envoy was only doing his job. The FBI is now investigating the claims, as well as possible collusion between Trump's team and Russian Federation.

Mr Putin accused the West of carrying out "crude and systematic interference in Russian affairs for many years".

Ties between the two countries have been strained by Russia's apparent interference in last year's US presidential election, as well as conflicts in Ukraine and Syria.

Russia's relations with the West have slumped to their lowest point since the end of the Cold War due to the crisis in Ukraine and differences over Syria. Could you imagine something like that? "No talks had even started", the president told the forum, adding that he was surprised with all the fuss surrounding the work of the Russian diplomat in the United States and calling anti-Moscow allegations "delirious".

Kelly also inquired about the country's role in supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad. But Islamic State (IS) jihadists are being targeted by both the West and Russian Federation.

"In any case, they don't think so", Putin said, referring to the European Union bloc, with which Moscow has had a frosty relationship since Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014.

"It's his job, he gets paid for this", Putin said about Kislyak's meetings with Trump's team.

Mr Putin told PTI that there was no other country in the world with which Russian Federation has such "deep cooperation" in delicate areas, including missile technology, and that it benefits from cooperation with India. "They're talking such drivel..." So, the ambassador meets someone.

"What else is the ambassador supposed to do?"
