Putin: I have no idea who hacked U.S. Democratic Party
Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday, that he did not know who was behind the hacking of U.S. Democratic Party organizations but it was important the information had been made public, Bloomberg news agency reported on Friday.
In an interview two days before a G20 meeting in China with U.S. President Barack Obama, Putin said it could be impossible to establish who engineered the release of sensitive Democratic Party emails but it was not done by the Russian government.
"Does it even matter who hacked this data?" Putin asked. "The important thing is the content that was given to the public."
"There’s no need to distract the public’s attention from the essence of the problem by raising some minor issues connected with the search for who did it," he added. “But I want to tell you again, I don’t know anything about it, and on a state level Russia has never done this.”
