Key Words: Putin: You Americans are hysterical

Vladimir Putin reportedly told a group of foreign policy experts on Thursday that Russia’s supposed threat to the U.S. is merely a distraction whipped up by politicians in the run-up to the elections.

“It’s much simpler to distract people with so-called Russian hackers, spies, and agents of influence. Does anyone really think that Russia could influence the American people’s choice in any way? Is America a banana republic or what? America is a great power.”

During his speech, Putin went on to lash out at the Obama administration for not keeping its word on Syria and for falsely accusing Moscow of various transgressions, according to Reuters.
