Putin Asks
"Is America a banana republic?! ..... Russia has no intention of attacking anyone, it is ridiculous, foolish and unthinkable."
Article & video highlight thoughts from the Russian President: "Hysteria has been whipped up in the United States about the influence of Russia over the U.S. presidential election .. It's much simpler to distract people with so-called Russian hackers, spies, and agents of influence. Does anyone really think that Russia could influence the American people's choice in any way? The number of mythical, dreamt-up problems include the hysteria - I can't think of another word - that has broken out in the United States about the influence of Russia on the current elections for the U.S. president .. What, is America a banana republic?! ..... Russia has no intention of attacking anyone, it is ridiculous, foolish and unthinkable. I read your analytical materials prepared not only by those present but also by analysts in the U.S. and Europe. However, it is just unthinkable, silly and unrealistic. In Europe alone, the combined population of NATO countries stands at 300 million, in the U.S. the total population is, probably, 600 million, while in Russia - 146 million. It is just funny to talk about this."
