Putin brags that he ‘regularly’ speaks to Trump on the phone

Russian President Vladimir Putin (C) attends his annual call-in show in Moscow, Russia, June 7, 2018.

The Russian president said he had warned in a speech in Munich in 2007 about a growing USA sense of exceptionalism and the risk of it imposing its own rules on other countries.

Prigozhin was sanctioned by the United States in 2016, before Mueller's indictment.

"In essence, these are sanctions", Putin said of the tariffs.

"Why is this being done?"

"I warned them that this situation, which we see today, could develop".

Mr. Kurz's government has emerged as one of the biggest advocates in the European Union for a more constructive relationship with Russian Federation, and that approach will likely impact the European Union when Austria takes over the rotating presidency of the bloc from Bulgaria on July 1.

According to the president, the relations between Russian Federation and the West will return to normal when the Western powers realize than sanctions and pressure do not work against Moscow.

"Experts are already discussing this".

But Putin said internal US politics could get in the way of a planned summit with Trump, referencing the congressional elections in November.

Donald Trump Denounces Rumors About Melania Trump's Absence
The White House offered few updates on the first lady's condition, and this week, her office lashed out at journalists for asking. Trump underwent a kidney procedure and recuperated in the hospital for five days, according to the White House .

According to him, this approach may possibly produce some short-term results political gains, but in the long run it will only lead people to seek alternatives to United States dollars.

He meanwhile boasted Russia's new hypersonic intercontinental missile would enter service next year and guarantee Moscow maintains military parity with Washington. London has blamed the nerve agent poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter on Russian Federation but Moscow has denied any involvement.

"If as Britain insists a military chemical agent was used against these people, they would have died within second or minutes, on the spot".

"Overall, we are heading in the right direction", he said.

He also added that until Russian Federation is allowed to take part in the investigation and is allowed access to Skripals, it is hard for Moscow to comment on this matter.

Both Sergei and Yulia Skripal have been released after spending weeks in hospital. Putin said the world needed a new global security framework. "The understanding that a third world war could be the end of civilization should restrain us from taking extreme steps on the global arena that are highly risky for modern civilization".

Austria's OMV is now among European companies involved in the planned Nord Stream 2 pipeline that would double the amount of gas Russian Federation can send directly to Germany, skirting transit countries such as Ukraine - a project opposed by the U.S. and some other EU members. 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.

Is Trump Pushing Europe Into Putin's Arms?

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

President Putin said his meetings with Austrian leaders had been "very constructive but not easy". "If we combine it with an earlier joke about Russian Federation allegedly influencing U.S. elections, it all sounds pretty amusing", he said. "If you put it together with an earlier joke that Russian Federation had influenced the USA election, all in all it sounds quite amusing: We have allegedly meddled with the presidential election in the USA and Trump as a thank you has presented us with Europe". "Utter idiocy. You can't describe this as anything other than a joke". "I. recommended at the time that our business keep its capital in Russian Federation, in the motherland", said Putin.
