Russian Federation has denied U.S. intelligence agencies' assessment that Moscow sought to interfere with the 2016 USA election to boost Trump's prospects of becoming president.

In a meeting last week to plan the summit, Bolton said, Putin told him that "there was no meddling in the 2016 election by the Russian state". Trump tweeted. "Where is the DNC Server, and why didn't Shady James ComeyJames Brien ComeyComey says most Republicans don't talk to him anymore: "I've succeeded in pissing off everyone" If Rod Rosenstein feels conflicted, he should simply recuse himself Trump says he will bring up election interference with Putin MORE and the now disgraced Federal Bureau of Investigation agents take and closely examine it?"

"I don't think anybody ought to have a case of the vapors" about President Trump's rhetoric on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and Russia, Bolton said.

"I'll tell you what President Putin said to me, through the translator of course". Asked if the United States would recognize Russia's claim on Crimea, he said: "We're going to have to see".

Moscow called the allegations absurd and said Russian Federation does not interfere in the internal affairs of other states.

"We're going to talk about Ukraine, we're going to be talking about Syria". The day before, he said they would discuss Syria, Ukraine and "many other subjects".

Trump was noncommittal when asked if he might lift sanctions imposed on Russian Federation, telling reporters: "We'll see what Russian Federation does".

"Well, we'll see", Bolton responded.

The Kremlin continues to claim that the Russian government played no role in the US election but has left open the possibility that Russian non-state actors might have been involved.

Trump will sit down with Putin in Helsinki on July 16, the first formal one-on-one meeting between the two leaders.

Suslov said that an unacceptable "pre-war situation" has developed in Russia-U.S. relations.

The strengthening of Trump's political position this year has made it possible for Trump to renew his friendship with Putin.

The Obama administration, along with the European Union and individual allied countries, imposed sanctions on Russian Federation over Crimea, and even members of Trump's Cabinet have said they will not be lifted until the situation is resolved. "Don't forget, President Obama gave up Crimea", he said. In April, a news anchor for the state-run network Vesti 24 mocked USA fears about a potential nuclear war with Russian Federation, jokingly advising audiences to eat "fewer candies and more water".
