Tusk was speaking Monday in Beijing at the opening of a summit between China and the European Union. "And I heard that they were trying, or people were trying, to hack into the RNC too, the Republican National Committee, but we had much better defenses".

In an interview broadcast on Face the Nation Sunday, Jeff Glor of CBS News asked Trump if he would ask Putin to send the Russian agents to the United States for prosecution. It doesn't mean anything.

Mueller's office has tried to serve summonses on the defendants demanding that they appear in court, but prosecutors say the Office of the Prosecutor General of Russian Federation declined to accept the summonses.

President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin reach to shake hands before a meeting in Helsinki Monday. In Paul's words - "They're another country".

"The world wants to see us get along", he added. They're going to interfere in our elections.

The Kentucky Republican says Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election isn't "morally equivalent" to USA interference in Russian elections.

US intelligence officials are in agreement that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election using a wide array of methods, including but not limited to hacking the Democratic National Committee's emails, breaking into American voting infrastructure and launching a sprawling misinformation campaign.

On Friday, 12 Russians were indicted on charges of interfering in the US 2016 election, a development that prompted some Democratic leaders to call on Trump to cancel the Putin meeting, a demand he quickly dismissed.

Bolton tells ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that the indictments show that the American justice system is aware of Russian efforts to meddle in US elections.

In Helsinki, Putin was asked if he favored Trump in the 2016 presidential election. "I appreciated your support", Trump said. She added that Trump also said: "Don't walk away".

The Virginia senator was among the top Democrats in Congress who called for Trump to cancel his upcoming summit with Putin after the Justice Department announced the indictments.

Konstantin Kosachev, head of the upper house of parliament's foreign affairs committee, wrote in Izvestia that Monday's talks come at a time when "so-called "peace-loving" Europe is afraid of peace talks between USA and Russian Federation". "He kind of goes in and wings it".

A number of Trump supporters were seen welcoming the American president to Finland.

Warner tells NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that Trump "has been completely reluctant to call out Putin as a bad actor".

Panelists on popular Sunday night talk show "Vecher", or "Evening", said Putin goes into Monday's summit in Helsinki as the clearly stronger figure, notably coming off his hosting of the World Cup. "But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake".

Ambassador Jon Huntsman says the two countries now have a "fraught bilateral relationship". I think having meetings with the president of China was a very good thing, I believe it's really good.

That attack on the alliance came on the heels of Trump's jarring appearance at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, where he harshly criticized traditional allies over "delinquent" defense spending only to later confirm his commitment to the military alliance that has always been a bulwark against Russian aggression.

Trump says in a television interview that he's going into the meeting with "low expectations".

Trump set expectations for the summit low, telling CBS News, "I don't expect anything".

"Everything that happens, all these investigations and so on - this is an internal affair of the United States", Peskov told the state-run broadcaster Russia Today.
