Previously, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the investigation of Moscow's alleged interference in the American elections is an anti-Russian hysteria.

Maduro also said that he would soon go to Moscow, to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"I ask the pope (Rimsky - ed.) For help against the military threat from the United States," Maduro said at a press conference in Caracas.

In Germany, made a new scandalous statement on the Crimea

The head of the Free Democratic Party of Germany, Christian Lindner, said that the issue of Russia's annexed Crimea could be postponed, but the annexation could not be recognized.

He stated this in an interview with Deutsche Welle.

Lindner stressed that his party does not call for recognition of the annexation of the Crimea.

"Our proposal is to return to the traditional German policy of detente ... The Crimean annexation is a violation of international law, we do not accept it. Sanctions remain in force ... But it's worth looking at whether we can interrupt the current spiral Escalation and an arms race, are they ready to change their policies in Russia, "the politician said.

According to him, the party's position is to freeze the conflict without recognizing the annexation of the Crimea and "offer a dialogue on other issues."

"Maybe once the tension is so reduced that it will be possible to talk about the Crimea," said Lindner.

As reported by the "Apostrophe", earlier, on August 5, the German politician Christian Lindner made a scandalous statement about the need to establish relations with Russia without distracting from the Crimea.
