“We did not interfere in the US (elections) either, why should we create any problems here? We have good relations with Germany. This is our largest trade and economic partner as a country in Europe, "Putin said, adding that he had established personal relations with US President Donald Trump during the meeting on sidelines of summit and an agreement that the Russian Federation and the United States would not have uncertainties in relations that lead to accusations of interference in internal affairs.
“We agreed that uncertain situations, especially in the future, should not be in these areas. This has a direct relation to cyberspace, Internet resources,” Putin said.
According to him, Russia and the United States will create a working group on cybersecurity. Commenting on the appointment of the US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker, Russian leader expressed the hope that he will maintain contact with all parties interested in the conflict resolution.
