In an interview with American broadcaster NBC News that aired Saturday, Putin also suggested that some of the 13 Russian nationals indicted by the United States may not be ethnically Russian.
Over two-thirds of U.S. House of Representatives Democrats urged President Donald Trump to enact sanctions on Russian Federation, the latest push by lawmakers for a response to investigators' findings that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 U.S. election. "To me it absolutely makes no difference because they do not represent the government", Putin answered, according to the Russian-language interview transcript posted Saturday by the Kremlin.
Since the US intelligence community concluded in January 2017 that Russian Federation engaged in a wide-ranging hacking-and-propaganda campaign to sway the presidential election, there has been mounting evidence pointing to an organized state effort.

Anti-Semitism in Russian Federation goes back hundreds of years.
Putin also suggested the USA put Russian dissidents up to the meddling. The communists shuttered synagogues, published anti-Semitic books and executed dozens of Jews in the 1960s and 1070s, according to the Jewish Virtual Library.
Putin also dismissed the idea that his government was involved in the US election.
But some see dark signs in the corners of Putin's Russian Federation. The report said Putin "ordered" the meddling effort.
There's no question that Russian voters will re-elect President Vladimir Putin on Sunday.
