Mattis: US to not change containment strategy against Russian Federation


President Vladimir Putin named Kinzhal this month among Russia's new nuclear weapons he said would bolster the nation's military capability and render the US missile defence useless.

Mr Putin said: "So what if they're Russians?". The plane was not shot down.

Jewish groups and US lawmakers condemned Russian President Vladimir Putin's suggestion that the 2016 USA presidential election may have been manipulated by Russian Jews.

Running against a motley crew of seven challengers, Putin is expected to take almost 70 per cent of the vote with a turnout of more than 60 per cent, according to state-run pollsters.

"Generally speaking, I cannot complain that I've come across any serious events that could be called a betrayal", Putin said.

Pilots of the Turkish Pegasus Airlines Boeing 737-800 flying from Kharkiv in Ukraine to the Turkish city of Istanbul reported that a passenger on the plane had a bomb and was demanding to land in Sochi, the officers told Putin.

"The systems mentioned by Putin are still years away and I did not see them changing the military balance", Matiss said.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Sunday confirmed the comments in the film.

The "Putin" documentary also saw the leader tie himself to Soviet dictator Josef Stalin by saying that his grandfather was a cook for both him and revolutionary leader Vladimir Lenin.

"What are you talking about?"

Reports are emerging that intelligence chiefs feel they have enough evidence to formally accuse Russian Federation of the attack.

But his remark about Jews, which seemed to suggest that a Russian Jew was not really a Russian, prompted particular outrage among those who remember Russia's centuries-long history of anti-Semitism and Jewish purges. Past year the United Nations accused Russian Federation of committing "grave human rights violations" in Crimea.

Iran will not let its soil be used against Pakistan: Iranian envoy
The premier said Pakistan believed that a peaceful and stable Afghanistan was vital for the economic progress of the region. The Iranian foreign minister is accompanied by a 30-member delegation, including representatives from the business sector.

When asked why Russian Federation wouldn't interfere in U.S. elections, Putin insisted the country neither has the desire nor the means to do it. Putin's denial, however, runs counter to assessments by USA intelligence agencies.

However, Putin says he has not yet had to deal with "serious events that can be called betrayal".

"Maybe it was the Americans who paid them for this work".

Russian President Vladimir Putin has revealed he had given orders for the shooting down of a passenger plane reportedly hijacked and heading towards the Sochi 2014 Winter Games Opening Ceremony with a bomb on board.

"[He] was a cook at Lenin's and later at Stalin's, at one of the dachas in the Moscow area", Putin says, Reuters reported.
