December 17, Russian President Putin held the 2020 annual press conference. According to the Russian satellite network, Putin said at the press conference that Russian hackers did not interfere in the U.S. election, all of which were tests to undermine the relations between the two countries.
Putin also said that Trump does not need to work in Russia because there are many people in the United States who support him. Putin said that nearly 50% of Americans voted for him.
Affected by the epidemic, the press conference was held remotely by video.
Putin connected with media representatives by video at the new Ogalevovo residence in Moscow Oblast.
