Putin denies Democrat email hack but praises leak

Japan Russia leaders to Meet in Vladivostok

We believe Japan also can enjoy advantages, such as securing natural resources and gaining profits from investment in Russian Federation, depending on the extent to which bilateral cooperation develops.

Russia's President Vladimir Putin began talks on Friday with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, but the Kremlin said the meeting was unlikely to produce a breakthrough in a territorial row that has bedeviled bilateral ties for eight decades. "That's what the discussion should be around". "The important thing is the content that was given to the public".

"Does it even matter who hacked this data?".

The FBI firmly believes that Russian Federation was behind the DNC hack, leading to concerns that Putin's government may be trying to influence the US election by obtaining embarrassing documents from the Democratic Party and then releasing them through platforms such as WikiLeaks. Putin poured cold water over such allegations again.

Some members of the OPEC group have pushed for a production cap, but face opposition from Iran, who say they are on course to reach their production target of 4m barrels per day. Putin said. "They act so delicately and precisely that they can leave their mark - or even the mark of others - at the necessary time and place, camouflaging their activities as that of other hackers from other territories or countries".

Abe said this encouraged him to believe that a resolution of the dispute, based on mutual trust, had become clearer.

One former USA ambassador to Ukraine points to Putin's use of the phrase "state level", which essentially gives the Russian leader an out.

A computer network used by Clinton's campaign, and the party's fundraising committee for the U.S. House of Representatives were also hacked.

The FBI is reviewing the hack, which some US officials and Western cybersecurity agencies allege is the work of a Russian military intelligence service hacking team called APT 28 or Fancy Bear.

The FBI is investigating whether the Russian government hacked into the DNC networks.

Russian President Vlamidir Putin came out blazing against US presidential rivals Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, saying the two contender failed to set a good example in politics.

Trump for his part has called for warmer relations with Russia and questioned the need for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, a position that would delight the Russian president. In an extraordinary press conference, Trump invited Russian Federation to launch further cyberattacks, adding that the country would be "rewarded mightily by our press" if it uncovered around 30,000 emails that Clinton deleted from the private server she used as secretary of state.

Trump: "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30-thousand emails that are missing".

Clinton, whom polls show as leading in the campaign for the U.S. presidential election in November, has said Russian intelligence services conducted the cyber attack against her party. He also praised both of them as "very smart people".
