On the campaign trail with Vladimir Putin

On the campaign trail with Vladimir Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks during a meeting with his confidants ahead of the upcoming presidential election in Moscow, Russia January 30, 2018.

"That's false. The Russians attempted to interfere in the United States election in 2016". The indictment says 13 Russians, including one known to have a close relationship with Putin, had "communicated with unwitting individuals associated with the Trump campaign".

"Why have you decided the Russian authorities, myself included, gave anybody permission to do this?" he said.

"Maybe they're not even Russians, but Ukrainians, Tatars, Jews, just with Russian citizenship".

"M$3 aybe they have dual citizenship of a green card; maybe the US paid them for this". British officials have hinted heavily that they believe authorization for the attack on the ex-spy, Sergey Skripal, likely came from Russian Federation, and British media have reported that the United Kingdom government is preparing retaliatory measures against Moscow.

"This is the worst form of anti-Semitism", said Shai. Israel has lately been in a diplomatic crisis with Poland, a former Soviet state, after its leader appeared to accuse Jews of helping perpetrate the Holocaust. Rather than a public rebuke, Magen said Israel would be wiser to mention its discomfort about the statement in private. "Such circumstances do not exist and never will", Mr Putin said. "I do not know either".

However, shortly after giving his command the Russian leader took a second call.

The comments are particularly disconcerting because anti-Semitism is Russia goes back hundreds of years, with vicious pogroms in the early 20th century leading tens of thousands of Russian Jews to flee to Europe and America.

In a two-hour documentary titled Putin and available on Russian social media, Putin told interviewer Andrey Kondrashov he received a telephone call from security officers responsible for the Sochi Olympics on February 7, 2014, shortly before the opening ceremony was due to start.

"We live in a moment when antisemitic violence is on the rise and words can have profound consequences, particularly when spoken by public figures or elected officials like President Putin", Greenblatt said.
