Putin says Russian people will choose his successor via ballot box

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his USA counterpart Donald Trump have been named among the 100 most influential people in 2017, according to TIME Magazine list released on Thursday.

Seven American officials revealed intriguing details about two classified document created by the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies, extremely valuable for the American intelligence services.

The current and former USA officials spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the Russian documents' classified status.

Putin has repeatedly denied that his government had any hand in trying to determine the US election.

"Faced with a crisis that he inherited from his predecessor, President Vladimir Putin succeeded in stabilizing the situation, preserving the Russian state and strengthening its economic position", former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev wrote for Time.

RISS said the report's effort to prove Russian Federation tampered with the election was far-fetched.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov dismissed the report out of hand saying it was based on anonymous sources.

"I really hope that the kind of unilateral action we recently saw in Syria won't happen (in North Korea) and that the USA will follow the line which President Trump repeatedly set out during his pre-election campaign", said Lavrov.

A report from Reuters on Wednesday said the Moscow-based Russian Institute for Strategic Studies (RISS) had provided the framework and rationale for what United States intelligence agents say was an effort by the Kremlin to interfere in the election.

Russian state television has claimed US President Donald Trump is more unsafe than North Korea's supreme commander, Kim Jong-Un, in an apparent indication that Moscow's opinion of the Republican has shifted.

FBI Director James Comey has confirmed that his agency has been investigating meddling in the election process since last summer, including potential links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

A spokesperson for Sputnik dismissed the claims of USA sources, calling them an "absolute pack of lies" in a statement to Reuters.

The report said the agencies did not assess whether Moscow's effort had swung the outcome of the race in Trump's favour, because American intelligence agencies do not "analyze USA political processes or US public opinion".

Most Russian analysts believe Putin, who has dominated the Russian political landscape for the last 17 years, will serve one last term before handing over to a successor in 2024. Five officials told Reuters the institute is the Kremlin's in-house foreign policy think tank.

Five of the US officials described the institute as the Kremlin's in-house foreign policy think-tank. After Reshetnikov retired from the institute in January, Putin named Fradkov as his replacement.

The Russian President is concerned any attack on North Korea's capital could lead to a mass of North Korean refugees fleeing into Russia.
