"It looks really unusual when you memorize your conversation with the commander-in-chief and then you leak it to the press", Putin said during a televised question-and-answer session with a selected group of Russians.

Russian President Vladimir Putin says that the U.S. Senate move to tighten sanctions against Moscow is part of efforts to contain Russia.

Promoting his interviews with Vladimir Putin that will air on Showtime, Stone believes "media pressure" has built up an antagonistic relationship between the U.S. and Russian Federation and that "corporate media that represents corporate government point of view" that benefits from making Russian Federation the enemy. "I have no doubt that we will work together and this work will be effective and beneficial for the Chinese and Russian people as well as the global economy".

He also derided efforts to strengthen USA sanctions against Russia: "Nothing has changed why are they talking about sanctions - it's evidence of domestic political problems in the U.S".

Putin said Russian Federation did not consider the U.S.as an "enemy".

Putin chose to answer 73 questions among the 1.9 million questions he received at the 15th nationally televised "Direct Line" questions-and-answers session.

According to official statistics, previous year nearly 19.8 million Russians were living below the poverty line - 13% of the population.


Asked at a US congressional hearing why he was sacked, Comey said he did not know for sure.

"What makes the Federal Bureau of Investigation director different from Mr. Snowden then?"

Former FBI director James Comey has presented no evidence to prove that Moscow meddled in the USA presidential election, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday, adding that Washington had tried to influence Russian elections for years.

"China welcomes Russian President Vladimir Putin's favorable comments on cooperation with China".

Putin served two presidential terms in 2000-2008 before shifting into the prime minister's seat for four years because of term limits. "By the way, if he faces any kind of prosecution in this regard, we will provide political asylum in Russian Federation for him as well". "We see what is going on in the US".

KIM: Putin criticized unnamed opposition leaders who are only interested in exploiting the country's problems for their own political PR.

He compared Comey's move to that of NSA contractor Edward Snowden, adding on a sarcastic note that Russian Federation could grant Comey political asylum.
