Putin, Trump 'Regularly Talk' Over the Phone

Russia 'not trying to split EU', says Putin

While the U.S. dollar now remains the world's only reserve currency, Washington's attempts to limit transactions using USA dollars effectively undermine global trust in the currency's status, Putin said.

Putin praised his military forces, maintaining they helped combat terrorism in Syria and said their actions helped stabilize the situation there.

"Our military is there to ensure Russia's interests in an important region of the world", he said.

The Russian economy has rebounded, however, and Putin emphasised that lifting the sanctions would answer common interests. He added, however, that he could pull them out of the country quickly if necessary.

The Russian president first launched a military intervention in Syria in 2015, turning the tables in the multi-front civil war in favor of ally President Bashar Assad.

After pressing Putin on Ukraine, Syria, Russian meddling in Europe and why he had never uttered the name of Russia's most prominent opposition figure, Alexei Navalny, who is now in jail, Wolf used his final question to ask why there were so many Kremlin-approved photos of a half-naked Putin.

Putin also addressed tariffs the USA imposed on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico, and other long-term allies in the European Union, likening them to unjustified economic sanctions.

On the global front, Putin also took the opportunity to say that Russian Federation would remain in Syria for as long as it was beneficial to Moscow. "But now we are seeing that this is happening".

Hawaii lava flow fills Kapoho Bay
The molten rock has formed a new delta in the ocean after extending at least seven-tenths of a mile out, officials said. It was where vacationers enjoyed tide pools, snorkeling and picnics, reported CNN affiliate Hawaii News Now .

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday he had warned Europe a few years ago about the risk of the United States imposing its rules on other countries, but that nobody had wanted to listen, Reuters reports. Well there you go. "Dinner is served. please sit down and eat". "They see that Russian Federation has become a competitor to them. we propose that this is a very mistaken policy".

After meeting Putin in Vienna, Van der Bellen said some United States politicians claim that the European Union is too dependent on Russian gas, but overlook the fact that American liquefied gas is much more expensive.

The Austrian chancellor, Sebastian Kurz, said diplomatic progress in eastern Ukraine, following by a "gradual easing of sanctions", imposed in the wake of Russian Federation annexation of Crimea in 2014, was "the scenario that we are wishing for".

"They will stay there as long as it is beneficial to Russian Federation and to ensure our worldwide obligations".

"Just recently one famous and popular German media outlet wrote that President Trump is pushing Europe into Putin's arms".

The legislation gives the president, among other things, the power to sever ties with unfriendly countries, and to ban trade of goods with those countries.

"If we take this together with an earlier joke, that Russian Federation influenced elections in the United States, then this all taken together, starts sounding pretty amusing", he said.

"First we allegedly influence the United States presidential election, and in exchange he gives us Europe as gift". "Utter idiocy. You can't describe this as anything other than a joke".

"Infrastructure built in Russian Federation for the World Cup should pay off in the future and be used for the development of popular sports".
