Kushner Denies Collusion With Russia

Russian President Vladimir Putin stepped up his rhetoric against the U.S. Thursday, saying the Kremlin would no longer tolerate American "impudence" in advancing tough new sanctions on Moscow.

Putin made the remarks at a press conference along with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto, in Savonlinna, Eastern Finland.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed into law a protocol to an agreement with Syria to deploy a Russian Air Force group at a Syrian military base.

He noted that the election of a US president has nothing to do with Russian Federation and it is not Russia's business to evaluate what the USA president does.

Investigations into Russia's alleged meddling in the USA presidential elections were merely a symptom of growing anti-Russian hysteria in the United States, Putin said.

It also said it would seize a Moscow compound used by USA diplomats as well as a United States diplomatic warehouse. The U.S. embassy in Moscow and the State Department both declined to say.

Nevertheless he did not specify what Russia's response could be, saying simply: "When the response will be and what it will be - that we will see", implying this depended on what action the United States finally takes.

"In answer to your question on whether I regret the worsening of relations with the U.S., I can give a direct answer: of course, we do regret it very much", he told a journalist. Officials in Moscow say new USA bans on Russian Federation would harm the interests of both nations.

The Russian president criticized the U.S. practice as an effort to "make U.S. legislation valid in other countries" and said Russian-U.S. relations were being sacrificed to U.S. domestic issues.

Elsewhere in his remarks، Putin said warmer ties between Washington and Moscow would help the two sides achieve better results in the "fight with terrorism،" adding that if the two act in agreement، they "could solve very acute problems much more effectively".
