Putin: Trump and I 'regularly talk over the phone'

"I am convinced that Vladimir Putin has a grip on President Trump", Peters said on CNN Wednesday night, adding that the Steele dossier alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians "rang true to me, because that's how the Russians do things".

Russian President Vladimir Putin said during his annual Q&A session on Thursday that all the "breakthrough" weapon systems he had announced in his address to the Federal Assembly would be timely manufactured and delivered to the troops.

Commenting on a question on the aluminum and steel tariffs recently imposed by the United States against Europe, Canada and Mexico, President Putin remarked that these restrictive measures are essentially sanctions.

He meanwhile boasted Russia's new hypersonic intercontinental missile would enter service next year and guarantee Moscow maintains military parity with Washington.

"Russia, of all countries, is not interested in it because North Korea is our neighbor", Putin said, according to a transcript of the interview published by the Russian presidency. We see and understand what is going on in Iraq.

Moscow retaliated in kind but Putin has repeatedly said the sanctions were ineffective and counter-productive.

"We believe that with joint efforts from both sides, the visit will be successful and fruitful and inject strong new impetus into the development of the China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination", she said. "Thankfully, that didn't happen, which means that we're dealing with something other than a military-grade agent", Putin said.

"If they were poisoned by military-grade poison, why did they not die?" he said.

"In particular, we hope that there will be progress in eastern Ukraine, so that sanctions can be removed step by step in accordance with the Minsk agreement", Kurz said, referring to a 2015 peace accord brokered by Germany and France that, so far, is far from fully implemented. He called Washington's withdrawal from treaties on anti-ballistic missiles "an attempt to put an end to strategic parity", noting that Russian Federation is responding to United States actions with modern arms that will keep that parity intact.

'In a recent telephone conversation, Donald said he was anxious about the possibility of a new arms race.

"So, we influenced the USA elections, and he gifted us Europe in return?" he asked.

The president added that cryptocurrency mining is now not regulated by Russian legislation, and that most countries don't use cryptocurrencies as means of payment. "Total nonsense. There's no way to describe this other than as a joke".

Russia, just like any other country, can not have "its own cryptocurrency" because the very concept of cryptocurrency "transcends national borders", Vladimir Putin said.
