Putin says will not change constitution to cling to power


Putin responded brusquely when interviewer Megyn Kelly asked if he condoned the interference that was alleged in last month's USA indictment by special counsel Robert Mueller.

A federal grand jury in the District of Columbia indicted 13 Russians and three Kremlin-linked companies in February for attempting to sow discord and interfere in the 2016 presidential elections. "Maybe they're not even Russians... We don't have a goal like that", Putin said in an interview to the American NBC. "There are 146 million Russians". So what? ... I don't care.

"I could not care less".

"They do not represent the interests of the Russian state". Putin asked in the often-combative interview with NBC television. "And we'll take a look at it".

Kelly noted that Putin made the remark about not having the tools to disrupt the USA election shortly after he announced Russian Federation had developed major new nuclear weapons.

"It's like anti-Semitism", he said, comparing Russia's critics to people who would say things like "the Jews are to blame". 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.

Last week, Putin told Washington to send him hard evidence that his citizens meddled in USA elections, mocking accusations to date as "yelling and hollering in the United States Congress". "Doesn't that sound ridiculous even to you?" he said. Asked if he believes the chemical weapons attacks - which have reportedly killed many, including children - are fake news, Putin said, "Of course".

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein answers a question after announcing that the office of special counsel Robert Mueller announced a grand jury has charged 13 Russian nationals and several Russian entities, on February 16, 2018, in Washington.

"I never changed the constitution, I did not do it to suit myself and I have no such plans to do so today", he said in an interview whose transcript was released by the Kremlin on Saturday. We don't see what goal we can reach by doing something like that.

USA intelligence agencies and many Western analysts have said that Russian interference came at the orders of the Kremlin.

"In Illinois, investigators found evidence that cyber intruders tried to delete or alter voter data", Bloomberg said.
