U.S. senators' urge for talks with Russian Federation is encouraging, lawmaker says

U.S. senators' urge for talks with Russian Federation is encouraging, lawmaker says

Four American senators submitted a letter addressed to US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Thursday, urging him to hold talks with Russian Federation on strategic issues and extension of the New START Treaty following President Putin's statements.

Speaking in an interview with the Russian state television, Putin described Trump as a great communicator.

"[The U.S. political system] has demonstrated its inefficiency and has been eating itself up", the Russian leader added.

Relations between the two Cold War-foes have been frosty after the United States intelligence community said Moscow interfered in the 2016 presidential election, and a number of congressional panels have launched probes into whether Trump campaign associates helped.

Putin and Trump met face-to-face last July at the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, and again in November when the two leaders were in Vietnam.

Mark Cuban Denies Sexual Assault Allegations
The woman went to police more than a week after the incident, but she immediately told her friend and boyfriend about it. However, the Multnomah County District Attorney's never pressed charges, citing insufficient evidence.

"We know that a woman's heart is the most loyal, her forgiveness the most powerful". He said he was particularly dismayed by what he described as the US role in the ouster of Ukraine's Russia-friendly president in February 2014 amid massive protests.

The comments come after months of sabre-rattling by Russian Federation and America.

Crimea became a Russian region after the referendum that was held there in March 2014, at which the majority of Crimean residents voted for reunification with Russia.

With nuclear tensions at a high between Russian Federation and the West, Vladimir Putin has said that he is willing to destroy the world - but only if Russian Federation is threatened.

Speaking in an interview with state television, Putin said western sanctions for Moscow's annexation of Crimea and the insurgency in eastern Ukraine were part of "illegitimate and unfair" efforts to contain Russian Federation, and added that "we will win in the long run". He continued: "Those who serve us with poison will eventually swallow it and poison themselves".

Speaking to parliament, Johnson said Britain might step up sanctions against Russian Federation if it finds that Moscow was involved in the incident.

Responding to a question about Russia's growing global leverage, Mr Putin responded: "If we play strongly with weak cards, it means the others are just poor players, they aren't as strong as it seemed, they must be lacking something".

"We need to make sure that the innovative component of Russia's development is the main driver of the country's development".

Speaking to state broadcaster Russia-1 for a documentary series called "The World Order", Putin praised the American leader's communication skills, saying "it's possible to negotiate with him, to search for compromises".
