Russian President Vladimir Putin reaffirmed his support for US counterpart Donald Trump, denying that he's been politically compromised by accusations that Russia helped him win the 2016 election.

President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that Sergei Skripal, a Russian former double agent poisoned in Britain, was a scumbag who betrayed Russia.

In May, President Putin said Russian Federation can no longer trust the USA dollar-dominated financial system since America is imposing unilateral sanctions and violating World Trade Organization (WTO) rules.

"I see that some of your colleagues are pushing the theory that Mr Skripal was nearly some kind of human rights activist", Putin said at an energy forum in Moscow. 'He was caught, punished, served a total of five years in prison and we let him go.

Netflix shares spooky first trailer of 'Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina'
On October 26th, just in time for Hallow's Eve, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will premiere on Netflix . As noted from the release, Sabrina Spellman (Shipka) is "an empowered young woman, half-human, half-witch".

Yury Ushakov, Mr Putin's top foreign policy aide, said Russia's military ties with India were "long-standing and well-established".

Putin also dismissed the allegation that Russian Federation was responsible for the accidental poisoning of Dawn Sturgess, a Salisbury-area woman who British police said died after coming into contact with the nerve agent Novichok which her partner had found in a discarded perfume bottle.

With respect to the attack, British prosecutors have charged two Russians, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, in absentia.

He added on a sarcastic note that "espionage and prostitution are among the most important professions".

Trump mocks Christine Blasey Ford over Kavanaugh allegations
Flake, Collins and Murkowski are facing fierce pressure from their left and right over their reservations about Kavanaugh. Flake wants to settle that matter too, but for most observers, it's the Ford allegations that need to be addressed most .

More than three months later, the bottle was found by a local man, Charlie Rowley.

The Skripals survived but a British couple, Dawn Sturgess and Charlie Rowley came into contact with the same nerve agent near Salisbury months later and Sturgess died. "I sometimes look at what's happening around this case and I'm just surprised: Some guys showed up and started poisoning homeless people there in Great Britain". What kind of nonsense is that?'

One of the suspects was then identified as a colonel in Russian military intelligence (GRU), according to reports.
