"Just recently one famous and popular German media outlet wrote that President Trump is pushing Europe into Putin's arms".

"The 13 people indicted are accused of an elaborate plot to disrupt the us election that allegedly included running a huge social media campaign from their headquarters in St. Petersburg, dubbed the "'troll farm".

The phone-in was Putin's first since being re-elected to a historic fourth Kremlin term in March, and comes just a week before Russian Federation is set to host the World Cup.

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious in March on a bench at a shopping center in Salisbury.
