Putin 'couldn't care less' about Russia's interference in U.S. elections

Vladimir Putin says he doesn't care about alleged Russian interference in the United States presidential election because the actions weren't connected to his government.

"Why have you decided the Russian authorities, myself included, gave anybody permission to do this?"

Pressed by Kelly, Putin finally acknowledged that even if Russian individuals interfered, he doesn't care, because they may not have Russian heritage, and according to him, did not represent the interests of the government.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of the 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies details that the Russian government spent millions of dollars annually, starting in 2013, with the specific intent of first disrupting Americans' confidence in the election system, and later, to elect Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton. "Secondly, we don't have this quantity of tools", he said.

Putin rejected allegations that Russian Federation sought to interfere in the election, despite the conclusion previous year by USA intelligence agencies that he personally directed a campaign to do so in 2016.

"But the USA refuses to work like this and instead throws 13 Russians to the media", he said, going on to list the possible ethnicities that would make the suspects "not even Russian".

The NBC News interview was conducted in two parts, on March 1 and March 2. The U.S. believes Syrian president Bashar al-Assad is responsible for the attacks, attacks Putin claimed are impossible because according to him, Russian Federation rid Syria of all its chemical weapons long ago.

"We in Russia can not prosecute anyone as long as they have not violated Russian law", he said. Give us an official request. "Doesn't that sound ridiculous even to you?" he said. "And we'll take a look at it".

USA intelligence agencies and many Western analysts have said that Russian interference came at the orders of the Kremlin. "It's not our goal to interfere".

The Russian leader also rejected those assessments.

Putin claimed that the United States interferes in Russian elections "all the time" but that it was "impossible for us" to do the same.

Trump himself has repeatedly shied away from condemning Russian Federation over the alleged meddling.
