Russians involved in United States election interference possibly Jews: Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin says he "couldn't care less" if individuals in Russia interfered in the US elections, saying whoever it was - if it happened - doesn't represent the interest of the "Russian state".

Putin, in a previously aired clip of his interview with Kelly, said he will "never" extradite the 13 Russians who Mueller charged in his probe. Putin told NBC. "There are 146 million Russians".

"I don't care. I couldn't care less", he said, condescendingly.

"I could not care less".

"So what if they're Russians?"

Mueller issued a 37-page indictment against the Russians but Putin indicated he has seen no evidence thus far that the alleged meddling broke any U.S. law.

He said USA authorities should send Russia's general prosecutor an official request.

In 2008, Putin became prime minister but maintained his grip on power, with his protege Dmitry Medvedev serving as president until 2012 when Putin returned to the Kremlin in the face of huge opposition protests.

Trump has also hinted that he gives Putin the benefit of the doubt when he denies that Moscow interfered.

Putin rejected allegations that Russian Federation sought to interfere in the election, despite the conclusion previous year by US intelligence agencies that he personally directed a campaign to do so in 2016. "I do not know either", he said. She served as Special Assistant to President Barack Obama and Senior Director for Russia/Eurasia on the National Security Council from 2013-2017. "There's no goal", Putin said.

Kelly listed some of the accusations of Russian interference made by Mueller's office and other United States officials, including the spreading of false information online. "Donald is a more modern individual".

Critics accuse Putin, who was first elected president in 2000 and is running for a fourth term in March 18 polls, of harbouring ambitions to stay in power indefinitely.

"Well, we will see".

There are fears Russian hackers are planning to attack Britain's infrastructure and Armed Forces Minister Mark Lancaster says the United Kingdom would respond in kind.

In terms of the future of Russia-U.S. relations, he cast Russian Federation as the victim. "Secondly, we don't have this quantity of tools", he said. "Why did you do that? The US imposed sanctions on us", he said.

Putin claimed he would be willing to fix relations with Washington. "I believe that the current president wants to do that, but there are forces that won't let him do it".
