Putin brags that he ‘regularly’ speaks to Trump on the phone

Putin brags that he ‘regularly’ speaks to Trump on the phone

Putin said that Russian Federation has been warning Europe about USA dominance for years, and "now, with the prospect of trade wars, Europe has begun to listen". "This in my view is very important - at this level a mutual respect has to exist in all circumstances, and a personal relationship can become a tool for solving worldwide issues", said the Russian President.

In his annual, pre-scripted televised question and answer session on Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin speculated about the prospect of a "third world war", warned Ukraine about "provocations" during the World Cup, declared that he has no intention of leaving Syria at this time, and said that American trade policies would drive Europe closer to Russia.

In a phone call to Putin in March, Mr. Trump proposed their holding a summit.

But there is one friend of Russian Federation that Putin would never use the "ty" form with: Milos Zeman, the 73-year-old President of the Czech Republic. The two countries aim to boost co-operation in areas such as infrastructure, energy, scientific research and high tech.

"It can't be otherwise, particularly after the tragic events in Libya and Iraq", Putin said.

The briefing was also attended by Vice President Pence and a number of Trump's Cabinet secretaries. She later tweeted photos from the event that showed her sitting next to the president.

It was the latest example - on the heels of last month's elaborately choreographed presidential inauguration and Putin's opening of a new bridge to Crimea - of the Kremlin's work to hone the theater of Putin's made-for-TV presidency.

Van der Bellen said Austria "has always striven to contribute to reducing tensions, and we will do so now and in the future".

Mr Putin, making his first foreign trip since being sworn in for a fourth term, said the restrictions were "harmful for everyone - those who initiated them and those who are targeted by them".

Putin was responding to a question about special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russia probe MORE's indictment of 13 Russian nationals and three Russian organizations in February.

Moscow retaliated in kind but Putin has repeatedly said the sanctions were ineffective and counter-productive.

"Everybody has an interest in getting the sanctions lifted, us too", Putin said.

Chancellor Sebastian Kurz accepted the request and pledged to approach Mr. Trump, the person said. It's an open secret in Vienna that Mr. Kurz wants to lobby the European Union to loosen the sanctions, but he'll need the support of Germany and France. When asked about the best joke he heard recently, Putin cited a recent German news report about Trump "pushing Europe into Putin's hands" and other reports of Russia's interference.

Significantly, the right-wing FPÖ party - the junior partner of Kurz's People's Party - supports Russia's claim of sovereignty over Crimea and advocates the easing of economic sanctions against Moscow.
