It is to be noted that relations between United States and Russia are greatly strained due to the crisis in Ukraine, Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2015, differences regarding Russian military intervention in the Syrian civil war, and the alleged meddling of 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump are meeting in Helsinki for one-on-one talks.
“I’m not going in with high expectations but we may come out with very surprising things”, Trump said.
In the most detailed USA accusation to date that Moscow meddled in the presidential election, a federal grand jury said Russia’s military intelligence agency officers covertly monitored computers of Clinton’s campaign and Democratic campaign committees, and stole large amounts of data.
It said the officers then “released that information on the internet under the names DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0”.
A billboard is pictured along President Donald Trump and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin’s route to the summit in Helsinki. He noted that Trump and Putin’s summit in Helsinki would take place on the same day in Helsinki. Now our relationship with Russian Federation has “NEVER been worse”, says the man who was alive throughout the Cold War.
Kremlin officials say Putin is expected to once again deny that any Russians meddled in the U.S. election.
“Our relationship with Russian Federation has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of USA foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!” he tweeted.
He and Martha MacCallum discussed the opposition that many Britons have over Trump’s visit.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who announced the indictment at a press conference in Washington, said “there’s no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime”. The Russians are nailed.
Thirteen Russian nationals and three Russian companies have also been indicted on conspiracy charges related to the Kremlin’s efforts to undermine the results of the 2016 election with false propaganda distributed on Facebook and other social media platforms. “This is no witch hunt”.
Russian intelligence officials used an IL computer as part of an operation to hack Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee documents, according to a federal indictment released Friday. “Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news”. The candidate and their party affiliation were not identified.
The indictment says the agents transferred stolen Democratic Party documents to the GRU-leased IL computer in April, 2016.
