Putin on Trump's withdrawal from Paris Accord: 'Don't worry, be happy'

Russian President Vladimir Putin turned the tables on claims the Kremlin meddled in the US presidential election, with a feisty Putin on Friday accusing American spies of "crude and systematic" widespread interference in Russian affairs.

"What fingerprints? Hoof prints?"

The official, who declined to be identified by name or affiliation and requested anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak publicly about the decision, said that Japan chose to issue its own statement, not as part of the group.

On Monday, Putin told a French newspaper that the allegations of Russian meddling were a "fiction" driven by Democrats' "desire ... to improve their standing by accusing Russia of interfering".

"Snowden is not a traitor", said Putin. "Even IP addresses could easily be faked". "We have set 175 GW target", he said.

Putin, speaking at an economic forum in St. Petersburg moderated by NBC's Megyn Kelly, said the probe into Russia's alleged attempts to influence the election via collusion with President Trump's campaign team was merely "hysteria", Reuters reported.

"I would put it very simply", he said.




Mr Putin insisted it was perfectly normal for Mr Kislyak to try to establish contacts and discuss future ties, adding that he had not discussed specifics.

Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed charges of meddling in the United States' 2016 election on Friday, saying that a young child could have manufactured evidence to support the assertion of US intelligence agencies.

Putin deftly brushed off questions about meetings that members of the Trump campaign - including then-Sen.

The Russian president underlined the importance of the Paris climate accord but noted that it's a framework agreement offering broad room for maneuvering for each signatory nation.

Trump said, according to the Paris Climate deal terms, China will be allowed many coal plants, and India will be allowed to double its coal production by 2020, but not the US.

USA president Barack Obama in December announced sanctions against Russia in the wake of the allegations of election meddling, which included the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats and the shuttering of two Russian offices in the U.S.

"Now we can dump it all on him and American imperialism", Putin said.
