Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and a Kremlin-Controlled Think Tank's Plan to Sway the 2016
Russian Federation dismissed as false on Thursday a Reuters report that said a government think tank controlled by President Vladimir Putin had developed a plan to swing the 2016 usa presidential election in Donald Trump's favor.
Three current and four former U.S. officials told the news agency that USA intelligence officials had acquired two confidential documents from the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies that contain details of Russia's efforts to sway the votes towards a more pro-Russia leader.
The current and former US officials spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the Russian documents' classified status.
Putin has denied any interference in the US election, and Trump said the Kremlin's activities did not play a role in the election outcome.
Russian President Vladimir Putin was included in the new annual list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World released by the Time magazine on Thursday.
"I really hope that the kind of unilateral action we recently saw in Syria won't happen (in North Korea) and that the U.S. will follow the line which President Trump repeatedly set out during his pre-election campaign", said Lavrov.
The Russian government documents also fit with the Office of Director of National Intelligence's January conclusion that Russian President Vladimir Putin's chief aim was to "denigrate" the impending Presidency of Clinton.
US President Donald Trump's honeymoon with Russian Federation would appear to be over.
Trump's decision to launch a missile strike against Syria, a Russian ally, drop a giant bomb on Afghanistan, and stick with Obama-era policies on Crimea, mean Russian hopes of him befriending the Kremlin have been on the slide for a while. One online propaganda video produced by RT, which claimed that "100 percent of the Clintons" 2015 "charity' went to themselves" was viewed more than nine million times.
The propaganda had the main goal to encourage Americans that a president who has a better opinion about Russian Federation is the best choice, in comparison to the Obama administration.
Most Russian analysts believe Mr Putin, who has dominated the Russian political landscape for the last 17 years, will serve one last term before handing over to a successor in 2024.
Neither of the Russian institute documents mentioned the release of hacked Democratic Party emails to interfere with the USA election, according to four of the officials. The officials said the hacking was a covert intelligence operation run separately out of the Kremlin.
It was not immediately clear how the documents were obtained by USA officials from the RISS.
"We did our best for almost eight years to implement your foreign policy concept", Reshetnikov told Putin.
He promised to look into the situation, saying that the deputy head of Russia's Presidential Administration, Sergey Kirienko, will be tasked with resolving the dispute.
