moscow - Russian President Putin has warned the United States on Thursday not to carry out a rocket attack on North Korea. That would have catastrophic consequences, stressed the Russian leader.
According to Putin, it is also due to American policy that North Korea was pushing to abide by a 2005 agreement that limited the country's nuclear program. The two parties, Pyongyang and Washington, must now stop the escalation of the crisis, Putin said in a lengthy interview on TV.
He reiterated his view that stories in the US about mysterious contacts between the Kremlin and the Republican Party were invented by opponents of Donald Trump. There have been completely normal and routine encounters that depict Trump's opponents as extremely suspicious. They want to make Trump's presidency seem illegal, but they cause their own country damage, according to Putin.
