"We expect that in the nearest time it will come to the presidential administration", he said, according to Russian news agencies. However, he undermined those remarks when he quickly returned to calling the special counsel's investigation a "witch hunt", and referred to Russian interference as a "hoax".

In addition, Putin in Helsinki allegedly spoke with trump about the new ban the deployment of weapons in outer space and called for the establishment of a consultative mechanism at the level of Ministers of defence and foreign Affairs. "He is interested in legislative exchanges, parliamentary dialogue and cultural and educational exchange programs, increased counter-terrorism cooperation, building on recent successes like the disruption of the St. Petersburg plot and resolution of the military conflicts in Syria and Ukraine".

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell last week identified the bill as a potential step Congress could take to push back against Russian Federation as Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer called for sanctions and other deterrents.
