Russian President Vladimir Putin said former head of the US presidential campaign Paul Manaforth worked with ex-president Viktor Yanukovych

This is reported by the Russian media.

"As for Mr. Manaforth, he is also associated with Russia, but the only thing that binds him is that, as a manager or owner of a US PR agency, he contracted and, as a businessman, also worked in this area, in including with President Yanukovych,"- he commented.

Putin stressed that Russia has nothing to do with it.

"It's just empty chatter and a desire to use any clue to fight the incumbent president. But this is not our business, let them deal with themselves," Putin said.

-Paul Manaforth is a former Party of Regions political technologist and former head of the Donald Trump Election Campaign.

-On October 30, charges were brought against him and Richard Gates, which contained 12 points , including the obstruction of US government agencies, money laundering, non-payment of taxes, fraudulent activities and work as a lobbyist for a foreign institution without registration, a criminal offense in the United States.

-Manaforth and Gates were sent under house arrest.

-In addition, it turned out that Manafort lied about the assets, had 3 passports and traveled under the name of the fake name. He explained this need to keep confidential.

-The political scientist estimated his strength at $ 28 million, while the prosecutor's office did not agree with such an assessment, and for the release from house arrest offered $ 12 million collateral.

-The court in Washington refused to be released from Manaforth's house arrest.

Putin promised US "mirror" response through "oppression" of Russian propagandists, RT & Sputnik

Putin promised US "mirror" response through "oppression" of Russian propagandists, RT & Sputnik

Russian President Vladimir Putin called the US actions against Russian RT and Sputnik "an attack on freedom of speech" and warned of Moscow's "mirrored" response

Putin told journalists today at a press conference following the results of the APEC summit, Russian news agency RIA Novosti reports.

"There is no democracy without freedom of speech. Attacking our mass media in the United States is an attack on the freedom of speech, without any doubt," Putin said.

It is reported that now in the State Duma, deputies are proposing to include foreign media - CNN, Voice of America, Radio Liberty - in the law on foreign agents.

"What is currently being discussed in the State Duma - I saw it yesterday - maybe it's too drastic, but it's natural, because at the level of representative bodies often there are extreme assessments, sharp judgments and hard sentences. But we're sure to answer we will have to formulate, and it will be a mirror, "Putin said.

Earlier, the US Department of Justice appealed to the Russian television company RT, formerly Russia Today, to register a US broadcasting office as a "foreign agent".

As you know, in a report released by the American secret services in January, Russia intervened in the 2016 presidential election. Separately, this report names the television channel RT, which experts consider "the main tool of international propaganda of the Kremlin". The document states that RT America "positions itself as an American channel and deliberately tries to hide any legal ties with the Russian government."

-Recall, Twitter has banned advertising from accounts of Russian propagandists RT and Sputnik.

"We have actually prepared the text of the resolution, our project. I mean ours, because it is the United States, Germany and France, and we work with Great Britain, with a very clear logic, and the main thing, of course, is the whole territory occupied and And, of course, security is up to the moment when we can begin preparations for the transition period, which is still very difficult, "said Klimkin.
