Syria deal in the works ahead of likely Trump-Putin meeting

Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump in Hamburg Germany on July 7

Russian President Vladimir Putin has accused the U.S. of inventing doping allegations against Russian athletes in an attempt to influence next year's presidential election.

Putin is terrified that the United States will interfere in next year's presidential election as payback for claims Russian Federation influenced the 2016 race for the White House.

The relationship that has been tense since Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 and has worsened with the scandal around alleged Russian interference in last year's election, is now "faltering, in a crisis state", Ushakov said.

"What worries me is that the Olympic Games are due to start in February, and when is our presidential election?"

The four were named in the McLaren report last December, which alleges that a state-sponsored doping programme existed in Russian Federation between 2011 and 2015.




In his remarks Thursday, Putin implied that the United States held undue leverage over the International Olympic Committee through sponsorships, broadcasting rights and advertising. "And the controlling interest is in the United States, because major companies contracting and paying for television broadcasting rights, major sponsors, major advertisers are there".

The two world leaders will meet as part of talks for the annual APEC Summit, which brings leaders of Pacific nations together to discuss trade.

Relations between Russian Federation and the United States have plummeted as a Washington probe has accused Trump's former campaign aides of secretly meeting Kremlin-connected officials. The Russian official claimed the meeting will take place on "the tenth" but the White House has not yet confirmed the exact date. Neither Ushakov, nor other officials mentioned if Ukraine is on the agenda-a topic Russian Federation regularly underplays in meetings with US presidents. "Since the victory was fake, many people turn their anger on a government that couldn't build up a sport system that would produce champions, and instead created a system of cheating".

Putin told factory workers in the Urals city of Chelyabinsk: "In response to our alleged interference in their election, they want to create problems for the election of the president of Russian Federation".

Putin is also concerned about turnout in the March 2018 elections, Gabuev said.
