Putin: Mueller Indictments Of Russians Driven By U.S

Putin, who has not made a bilateral visit to a West European country since he went to Finland last July, will meet government and business leaders in Austria in a trip which officially marks 50 years since the two countries' energy firms Gazprom and OMV first signed a gas supply deal. With Trump's new metals tariffs, Putin said, Europeans are now finally getting their comeuppance for showing excessive deference to Washington - and getting a taste of the way the United States had long treated Russian Federation.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Donald Trump talk "regularly", the Russian president told an Austrian news outlet ahead of his visit to Vienna.

The Russian leader was responding to a question about special counsel Robert Mueller 's February indictment of 13 Russians and three Russian organizations when he brought up his relationship with the American president.

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".

"We have continued our cooperation even during hard times", Kurz said after talks with Putin.

In December past year, Putin made a surprise visit to Russia's Hmeimim airbase in Latakia, Syria where he ordered a partial pullout of the country's troops, saying their mission there was mainly completed. The two presidents have spoken by phone eight times since Trump was elected, according to readouts available on the White House website.

"And we will normalise relations with all our partners, including the United States, as well as those who are obedient to the United States and impose sanctions on us".

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

He will attend a business conference with envoys from both countries.

Putin had another "I told you so" message for Russian businessmen, saying he had previously warned them about the risks of keeping their assets overseas and that they were now being persecuted by countries such as Britain. Isn't it ridiculous?' Putin asked.

In response to a question calling on him to enact sanctions against Latvia for allegedly mistreating ethnic Russians there, Putin said he wanted to resolve the situation with talks and not with any measures that would make matters worse.

After pressing Putin on Ukraine, Syria, Russian meddling in Europe and why he had never uttered the name of Russia's most prominent opposition figure, Alexei Navalny, who is now in jail, Wolf used his final question to ask why there were so many Kremlin-approved photos of a half-naked Putin. "The State Department will say that it has nothing to do with them - rather it is Mr Soros" private affair. "With us, it is Mr. Prigozhin's private affair", Putin said. "Are you satisfied with it?"
