Putin on Russian Meddling: 'I Couldn't Care Less'

Human rights campaigners have compiled a dossier detailing the scale of Vladimir Putin's 'authoritarian rule. The dossier details 50 laws which campaigners say severely restrict democracy and opposition in the country

Asked if he thinks that the USA is regularly meddling in Russian affairs, Putin answered: "always". When he returned to the office after getting the warning, he told an aide: 'That was one pissed-off national security adviser'.

The staffers on Daniel's cyber response team were baffled when he informed them that they had been told to stand down. Daniel Prieto, one of Daniel's top deputies, recalled, "I was incredulous and in disbelief".

In the summer of 2016, while the USA intelligence community was just beginning to grasp the magnitude of Russia's attack on the 2016 election, Obama administration officials were torn over how to respond. In my head I was like, 'Did I hear that correctly?' he recalled.

"Well, the Russians had no impact on our votes whatsoever, but certainly there was meddling and probably there was meddling from other countries and maybe other individuals", Trump said at a joint news conference with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven. "But they're not government officials".

Advisors believed a generalized warning would be more effective than a specific sanction or action.

Jews with Russian citizenship could have been behind interference in the 2016 United States presidential election, President Vladimir Putin said. "Let his imagination run wild".

"I never changed the constitution, I did not do it to suit myself and I have no such plans to do so today", he said in an interview whose transcript was released by the Kremlin on Saturday.

There were multiple reasons to try to stay out of an escalating cyberwar with Russian Federation, but one top aide said afterward Obama may have been too concerned about perception of being viewed as prejudicial.

"With all due respect for you personally, with all due respect for Congress, you must have people with legal degrees, 100% you do", Putin said smiling.

"It would create chaos, help Trump, and hurt Clinton". This is ethnic nationalism, and it is similar to how Trump sees America - where white Christians are the "real Americans", and people of color, and immigrants are consistently treated as second-class, inferior, or the "other".

Instead, Putin said, the United States should sign a cybersecurity pact with Russian Federation if it wanted Moscow to look into the matter in earnest. The source had warned of a "massive operation" targeting Western democracies, according to the book.
