Putin Trump can claim'fairly serious achievements in first year

Putin has adamantly denied those accusations, and Trump said last month that he believes Putin is sincere in his denials. "Look at the market!" Russia has responded in return, requesting the U.S. government-funded Voice of America and the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty to register as foreign agents.

According to current and former US officials, President Donald Trump's daily briefing is designed to avoid making him angry, and often avoids the latest intelligence on Russia's interference in the 2016 US election, The Washington Post reported Thursday. "It's like he's saying we're in power and we've decided that it (Navalny running) is a bad idea", Navalny said.

And speaking at an annual news conference in Moscow today, Mr Putin called on "good-willed people around the world" to help destroy the terrorist group. The Kremlin made a point of noting that Trump initiated the call.

Putin emphasized the countries need to cooperate on tackling global challenges and that Russia is ready for "constructive" cooperation on tackling the North Korean standoff. The resolution on calling the elections must be published within five days after that, which will officially launch the election campaign, and parties will be able to meet for congresses to nominate their candidates.

And as a 'thank you' for the backing, Damascus gave the green light to an expansion of the Tartus base in January.

Russia regularly warns the U.S. against provoking North Korea with its joint military exercises with South Korea, Putin said, adding that it only takes one launch to create "catastrophic consequences". The central bank has warned that without reforms, not even oil at $100 a barrel would lift medium-term gains in gross domestic product beyond a range of 1.5 per cent to 2 per cent.

The presidential election in Russia will take place on March 18, 2018.

Putin stressed that it is vital to act "very carefully" when dealing with the DPRK's nuclear program. "I think in politics, as in the economy, there should be competition". I am sure that the overwhelming majority of Russian citizens do not want this. Putin disclosed he planned to run as an independent candidate and garner support from more than one party, in a sign the former KGB officer may be keen to strengthen his image as a "father of the nation" rather than as a party political figure.

Sobchak, whose father was Putin 's political mentor and who is rumoured to be the president's goddaughter, was at Thursday's event as a journalist for opposition television channel Dozhd. She also referred to Navalny, who has been imprisoned repeatedly for protesting. According to Levada, only 28 percent of Russians said they were certain to vote in March.

Russia has never accepted the allegations that the doping cover up was state-sponsored, and Putin suggested the claims were the invention of U.S. intelligence. Russia denies it is in violation and argues the U.S. has already breached the treaty by setting up an anti-missile system in Europe, something the U.S. also disputes.

But Russia would "defend the interests of our athletes, including in civil courts", he said. The record for a Putin news conference was set in 2008, at four hours 40 minutes.

Putin also dismissed the U.S. investigations into potential collusion, saying it was normal practice for governments to meet with officials from other election campaigns as well as governments.

As in previous years, there was a carnival atmosphere in the press conference hall.

President Donald Trump, seen here on Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2017, is pushing Congress to deliver a tax bill for his signature before Christmas.
