Another Russian warning from the top. President Putin expressed his concern of Hillary and her threats towards Russia in a Press Conference. He hopes she will change if elected, and as well he spoke of Trump and his willingness to work in together in the fight against terrorism, but seem a bit skeptical whether or not Trump’s position may change after the election.
The Russian president delivered the ominous threat as tensions between the West and Russia hit all-time highs over Russian airstrikes in Syria.
In the clip, which was filmed at a Russian press conference, Mr Putin claimed the US is focusing on Russia and Iran “to distract voters from the country’s problems” by creating “an enemy and uniting the nation against them”.
It’s not funny anymore. If somebody out there wants confrontation… This is not our choice but this means that there will be problems
He said: “Jeopardising Russian-American relations in order to gain brownie points internally – I consider this to be harmful and counter productive.
“It’s not funny anymore. If somebody out there wants confrontation… This is not our choice but this means that there will be problems.”
The worrying video has already racked up 1.3 million views as fears escalate over a third world war.
Mr Putin weighed in on the US presidential race and criticised Hillary Clinton’s “very aggressive” stance towards Russia.
He said: “Mrs. Clinton has chosen to take up a very aggressive stance against our country, against Russia.
“Mr. Trump, on the other hand, calls for cooperation – at least when it comes to the international fight against terrorists.
He added: “Naturally we welcome those who would like to cooperate with us. And we consider it wrong, that we always have to be in conflict with one another, creating existential threats for each other and for the whole world.
“Would Mrs. Clinton delivers on he threats and harsh rhetorics against Russia if she became President? Or will she correct her position against us?”
The Russian leader’s criticism of Mrs Clinton comes after the Democrat accused Russia of espionage over the hacking of Democrat emails.
In the third and final US presidential debate, Mrs Clinton said: “Russian government has engaged in espionage against Americans. They have hacked American websites, American accounts of private people, of institutions. Then they have given that information to WikiLeaks for the purpose of putting it on the Internet.
“This has come from the highest levels of the Russian government, clearly, from Putin himself, in an effort, as 17 of our intelligence agencies have confirmed, to influence our election.”
Notably less antagonistic, Mr Trump said: “I don’t know Putin. He said nice things about me. If we got along well, that would be good. If Russia and the United States got along well and went after ISIS, that would be good.”
The Republican candidate claimed Putin had “outsmarted [Mrs Clinton] every step of the way” and has “no respect” for her.
But Mrs Clinton hit back and said Mr Putin’s support of Mr Trump was because “he’d rather have a puppet as President of the United States.” SOURCE
Russian President #VladimirPutin questioned on Sunday why the West would want to arm Syrian rebels who he said ate human organs, saying plans to give them weapons contradicted basic human values.
Speaking after meeting Prime Minister David Cameron in London ahead of a G8 summit on Monday, Putin said both the Syrian government and Syrian rebels were to blame for the bloodshed.
“You will not deny that one does not really need to support the people who not only kill their enemies, but open up their bodies, eat their intestines in front of the public and cameras. Are these the people you want to support?,” Putin told a news conference.
“Is it them who you want to supply with weapons? Then this probably has little relation to humanitarian values that have been preached in Europe for hundreds of years.”
Putin was referring to disturbing video footage on the Internet of one rebel fighter eating what appeared to be the heart of a government soldier.
The talks followed a decision by President Barack Obama’s administration to arm rebels trying to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad after it said it had obtained proof that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons.
The Russian leader, who arrived an hour late for the talks, said he wanted to help broker a #peacedeal for #Syria, saying he hoped the #G8summit in Northern Ireland could help advance that process.
But Cameron said big differences over how to best achieve that aim remained between #Britain and #Russia.
There are very big differences between the analysis we have of what happened in #Syria and who is to blame but where there is common ground is that we both see a humanitarian catastrophe”, #Cameron said.
However, Cameron added he thought the differences were not insurmountable.
“What I take from our conversation today is that we can overcome these differences if we recognise that we share some fundamental aims: to end the conflict, to stop Syria breaking apart, to let the Syrian people decide who governs them and to take the fight to the extremists and defeat them,” he said.
