Vladimir Putin slams 'pathetic' United States forces ready to sacrifice Russian Federation ties

Russian President Vladimir Putin accused "powerful" forces within the United States of trying to sabotage ties between Moscow and Washington in the wake of a controversial summit with U.S. counterpart Donald Trump.

Russian President Vladimir Putin called his first summit with President Donald Trump a success - but warned Thursday that Trump's opponents in the US are hampering any progress on what they discussed, such as limiting their nuclear arsenals or ending the Syrian war.

Addressing Russian diplomats in Moscow on Thursday, Putin described his meeting with Trump earlier this week as "successful", but warned relations between the two countries remain in "an extremely unsatisfactory state".

"My people came to me, Dan Coats came to me and some others, they said they think it's Russia", Trump said Monday alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland.

Within the (several) emojis in Hayden's response, he said: "I'm not laughing". McFaul was U.S. ambassador to Russian Federation when President Barack Obama signed the Magnitsky Act into law, imposing harsh sanctions that Browder and McFaul supported.

He said he looked forward to a second meeting with Putin to tackle the issues. 'The sentence should have been "I dont see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation"'.

Then-U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul leaves the Foreign Ministry in Moscow in 2013. "TIME's new cover: Trump wanted a summit with Putin".

Republicans voted down a motion offered by Democrats in the House of Representatives intelligence committee to subpoena the American interpreter who witnessed Trump's meeting with Putin. The New START treaty, which was agreed to by President Barack Obama and President Dmitry Medvedev, confirmed and expanded Cold War-era commitments by Russian Federation and the U.S.to reduce their deployed nuclear warheads.

Meanwhile, monthly input price inflation eased notably to 0.2 percent from 3.3 percent in May. That increase was due to higher prices for clothing and recreational goods.

American intelligence agencies a year ago announced their conclusion that Russian Federation carried out a campaign of hacking and propaganda targeting the 2016 USA election in an attempt to sow discord, disparage Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and aid Trump's candidacy.

Mr Putin faces no serious political opposition at home, and leads a country that has never experienced a democratic transfer of power. His response followed words of alarm last week from National Intelligence Director Dan Coats, who said warning lights about overall cyberthreats to the US were "blinking red" - much as "blinking red" signals before the 9/11 terror attacks.

The White House on Wednesday declined to rule out accepting a Russian proposal for the questioning in the United States of Americans sought by the Kremlin for "illegal activities", including a former USA ambassador to Moscow.

Speaking during a Cabinet meeting at the White House, Trump was asked by a reporter if Russian Federation was still targeting the US. "He got way more than he bargained for", in which Brian Bennett examine's Trump's loyalty to both Russian Federation and the United States.

'My view has not changed, which is that Russian Federation attempted to interfere with the last election and that it continues to engage in malign influence operations to this day, ' Wray said in an interview with Lester Holt of NBC News. "There is just rule of Putin".

"We talked about this of course while meeting President Trump".

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., wrote on Twitter that he thought the White House must "publicly and unequivocally rule it out".
