Putin: US roughly and blatantly deceived Russian Federation during Euromaidan

"I think he is a reasonable man, despite his flamboyant ways-a result of his previous activities and experience", Putin said, claiming that-while talking business-Trump "gets to the core of issues, he listens and communicates with the other party". "Moreover, on a personal level he made a very good impression on me".

"If they did not violate Russian laws, then there is nothing to bring them to justice in Russia for", Putin told Megyn Kelly in an excerpt from an interview to be aired on NBC Friday at 10 pm/ET. They should at least say - you know, there is such notion as the excessive act - we did not want this but the events moved in such way but we will do everything to return them in the legal framework.

Still, analysts believe the Kremlin fears that low turnout will undermine the appearance of the election's legitimacy, and the government appears to be taking numerous measures to boost participation.

Earlier this month, in his speech to the Federal Assembly Russian President Vladimir Putin unveiled the most advanced systems of strategic weapons, being developed in response to Washington's unilateral withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty (ABM Treaty) and practical deployment of the ABM shield both inside the USA and outside its borders.

"It's quite hard to interact with such a system, because it's unpredictable", he added.

Moscow's hopes for better ties with Washington have been dashed by allegations of collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.

"In the final count you should realize that people in Russia live in accordance with Russian laws and not USA laws, and it will remain so".

Speaking about the bitter tensions in Russia-West relations, Putin said they have been rooted in Western efforts to contain and weaken Russia.

Prince has sharply disputed that account, saying he did not present himself as a representative of the incoming administration. Trump says there was no collusion between Moscow and his campaign and calls the investigation a witch hunt.

"We are a great power, and no one likes competition", he said.

Yanukovych was elected the president of Ukraine in 2010. Preventing doubt about the outcome of an election can not be overstated. "That is, there is an upswing", Putin said.

"Those who serve us with poison will eventually swallow it and poison themselves", he said.

A young Russian lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, who he employed to try to protect his company was arrested, beaten and died in custody.

British police on March 7 said the two were deliberately targeted by a "nerve agent" and that the case was being treated as attempted murder. Moscow has denied any involvement. Yet, President Trump's insistence on ramping up warhead production as shown in his recent Nuclear Posture Review encourages further aggression from adversaries such as Putin and risks triggering another arms race.

The remarks came under criticism from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as well as the United States, Germany, France, and other Western countries.

'I made some exaggerations, ' the action-loving Russian leader said with a grin. 'If someone makes a decision to destroy Russian Federation, then we have a legitimate right to respond'.
