Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered the destruction of passenger planes that have been reported to carry a bomb for the objective of assaulting the opening of the Sochi Winter Olympics in 2014. And since Jewishness is widely recognized in Russia as an ethnicity as opposed to just a religion, Russian Jews are not really considered as ethnic Russians, though they are certainly accepted as Russian citizens. At one point, Putin suggested that Ukrainians, Tatars, or Jews with Russian citizenship may have been involved.
Putin responded brusquely when interviewer Megyn Kelly asked if he condoned the interference that was alleged in last month's US indictment by special counsel Robert Mueller.
"Maybe they have dual citizenship or a green card; maybe the USA paid them for this".
House Intelligence Committee Ends Russian Probe: "No Evidence Of Collusion"
Two weeks ago Mueller secured a guilty plea from a third former Trump campaign aide on charges not directly related to collusion. President Donald Trump speaks to reporters in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, U.S., February 9, 2018.
Putin appears to be saying that a Jew or ethnic Ukrainian couldn't possibly have meddled in the USA elections on behalf of the Russian government, even if that person had Russian citizenship. "I do not know", Putin said. In English, the single word "Russian" can describe a Russian citizen, an ethnic Russian, or both.
The Pentagon chief explained that he had carefully read the Russian leader's statements: "I focused on the last third, because the first two dealt with domestic matters".
Putin's comment also caught the attention of the American Jewish Committee, which said it was "eerily reminiscent of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion" - a forged tsarist-era, anti-Semitic pamphlet that purported to describe plans for Jewish domination of Europe.
Eddie Jones does not expect quick fix to England's breakdown woes
While Ireland have not been flawless in any of their matches so far, Murray believes they are fixing problems as they go along. "Every good team goes through this period", Jones said today, "it's actually an essential part of developing a great team".
At the time of the indictment, Trump tweeted, "Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President". Russian Federation denies the charges.
Democrats in the House and Senate called on President Donald Trump to extradite the 13 Russian nationals who were indicted as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into election interference in 2016.
