Russians send two million questions to Putin
moscow - Russian President Vladimir Putin answered questions on numerous domestic and international issues during his annual question show Thursday. Russians sent about 2 million questions this year, reports Russian media.
Putin said, among other things, that Russia has no plans yet to leave Syria, where it supports the government of Bashar al-Assad. 'We do not build facilities there for the long term and we can withdraw our troops fairly quickly if that is necessary,' he said. 'But at the moment we need them there. They carry out important tasks. '
The Russian president also commented on the alleged Russian interference in the US presidential election. He was referring to a publication in a German medium that concluded that President Donald Trump is pushing the Europeans into the arms of Putin, who concluded that something like that sounds 'pretty funny'.
'We apparently had an influence on the election of the American president and then he gave us Europe as a gift,' said Putin. 'Total nonsense. This can only be described as a joke. '
