Putin Says That Russia Did not Meddle in US Elections

Russian President Vladimir Putin told President Donald Trump Monday that he never meddled in the 2016 U.S. election, the Russian leader said Monday at a joint press briefing.

“Once again, President Trump mentioned the issue of the so-called interference of Russia with the American elections, and I had to reiterate things I said several times including during our personal contacts that the Russian state has never interfered and is not going to interfere into internal American affairs including election process,” Putin said during the conference alongside Trump.



Putin said that he was willing to work with the U.S. to “analyze together” any specific material related to election meddling.

“For instance, we can analyze them through the joint working group on cyber security, the establishment of which we discussed during our previous contacts,” he said.

The two leaders “spent a great deal of time,” talking about election meddling, Trump said at the briefing.
