Vladimir Putin described the accusations of Russian interference in US presidential elections and Washington’s attitude to the Russian media as “spy mania” and “delirium”.
According to Putin, there is a worldwide practice when diplomats meet with representatives of different candidates in other countries and discuss with them issues of developing bilateral relations. And he does not understand why in the United States this has acquired the character of spy mania.
The President noted that the share of Russian mass media in the total volume of world information is incomparable with American cross-border domination.
“What about the freedom of information dissemination, one of the cornerstones of American democracy?”
The head of the country summarized that it was necessary to draw conclusions from this and continue working together, “rather than pounce like animals on each other.”
