Russia’s enhanced military responds to outside changes: President Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday spoke to the world's leading media agencies about Russian relations with other countries on the sideline of the World Economic Forum in Saint Petersburg.

Regarding Russia's enhanced military capabilities, President Putin said this aims to respond to outside changes, especially as NATO bases near the Russian border amid growing tension between Russia and NATO. Mr. Putin said accusations by Western countries that Russia hacked their computer networks to interfere with their elections are false. He added he doesn't believe any hacker can affect a presidential election in any country in Europe, Asia, or America.
