Anti-Russian sanction 'illegitimate way of competition' - Putin

When asked to comment on those accusations, Putin said the only thing that matters is an official document, such as request to the general prosecutor of the Russian Federation.

"The U.S. often implemented this type of activity [through military and non-military means] with the help of their junior partners, as well as global organizations dependent on them (especially NATO)", the commission said. Among other types of arms, the Russian president once again stressed the importance of nuclear capability, adding that it is precisely nuclear weapons that help ensure peace.

Even if the Russians never face justice in the United States, the sweeping indictment served the added goal of increasing the public's awareness about the elaborate foreign campaign to meddle in American democracy, legal experts have said. "And we stand by our position that the thing we feared they may do in that spot, they did not".

Russia's Central Election Commission will open 24 polling stations for the upcoming presidential vote in Moldova's breakaway region of Transnistria, where the authorities back Vladimir Putin's re-election.

Now Ryabkov has said Moscow has evidence the United States has been trying to interfere in the ballot - which could see Putin return to power for a historic fourth term. The charges were later proven false, but USA forces remained to battle an Islamist Al-Qaeda insurgency that arose and transferred power to mostly Shiite Muslim government in 2011. Meanwhile, the insurgency in Iraq worsened and jihadis formed the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), which spread into neighboring Syria's civil war in 2013.

Yanukovych was elected the president of Ukraine in 2010.

The first round will be held on Sunday 18 March 2018.

The U.S. and the European Union showed their disapproval of Russia's alleged meddling in Ukrainian affairs by introducing several rounds of anti-Russia sanctions, in spite of the fact that Moscow had repeatedly refuted the allegations.

US spy chiefs have told 21 states they WERE targeted by Putin's hackers before the 2016 US Presidential election.
