Russian President Vladimir Putin called accusations from American politicians that Russia interfered in the course of the US presidential election, an attempt by the losing party to elect the Democratic Party to blame its failures on others.
Responding to the BBC’s annual big press conference on whether the Russian hackers interfered in the course of the American elections and whether he himself is involved, Putin said that “the loser always looks for guilty on the side.”
According to the Russian president, he knows that hackers hacked the server of the Democratic Party, but did not see evidence that the hackers were operating from Russia. “Who knows what these hackers are, who said that they acted from Russia?” – said Putin.
In his opinion, the main thing in all this is information that the hackers provided to society and which turned out to be true. Against this background, the Russian president considers the nationality of hackers to be secondary.
At the same time, Putin refused to comment on the reports of the conversation with Barack Obama, who – according to the American media – called him through the emergency telephone line and demanded to stop hacking attacks.
According to Vladimir Putin, he never divulges details of personal conversations with colleagues in principle. Earlier, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed the very fact of such a conversation between Obama and Putin, but said that the emergency phone line was not used for him.
Representations about the world order.
Answering the question of the VGTRK correspondent during his press conference, how he perceives his high enough rating among the members of the Republican Party of the United States, a well-known watchful attitude to Russia, Putin said he does not take it to his personal account.
In the opinion of the Russian president, this means that a significant part of the American people have ideas about the world order coinciding with Russia, and the Democratic Party simply did not feel this moment.
According to Putin, the elected president of the United States, Donald Trump, “subtly felt the mood of society and worked in this paradigm.” “It was going to the end, although no one believed that he would win – except us,” Putin added.
Political scientist Konstantin Kalachev believes that such questions are pleasing to Putin. “It is especially pleasant that 34% of the Republicans support him, with what pleasure he talks about the systemic problems of the Obama administration.” Survived Obama, “Kalachev said.
He also notes that Putin has “common values with the conservative part of the Republicans.” “Traditional values unite,” – said Kalachev.
During the campaign in the US hackers hacked the servers of the Democratic Party and posted on the Internet its internal correspondence. The US intelligence services came to the conclusion that hackers from Russia were behind hacking.
Leadership of the Democratic Party, the candidate from which Hillary Clinton eventually lost the election, said that hackers could be personally accountable to Putin, but Russia herself denies this. Officially, the US special services did not mention the name of Putin.
