Russian President said Wednesday that would “definitely” interfere in the 2020 U.S. presidential elections.
He made the comment during a panel discussion at Russian Energy Week in Moscow and appeared to be poking fun at the of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
“I’ll tell you a secret: Yes, we’ll definitely do it,” Putin said, . Then he added: “Just don’t tell anyone.”
Putin continued: “You know, we have enough of our own problems. We are engaged in resolving internal problems and are primarily focused on this.”
Putin appeared to make light of evidence of Russian interference in U.S. elections, as President Donald Trump has done in the past.
