Vladimir Putin may meet Donald Trump in Vietnam

This was declared by presidential assistant Yuri Ushakov to Russian agencies.

"In response to our imaginary interference in their election, [the US] wants to create problems in the Russian presidential election", he added.

Putin has not announced whether he will run for another term in the March 18 election.

"Here is what worries me: the (Winter) Olympics start in February, and when are our presidential elections? In March", Putin told workers at a Ural Mountains factory, according to Russian news agencies.

"There is a strong suspicion that this is all happening in order to create a situation useful to some, one of disappointment for sports followers and sportsmen in which the state allegedly participated in violations", he said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has commented on the Washington accusations of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Relations between Moscow and Washington have plummeted as a U.S. probe has accused Trump's former campaign aides of secretly meeting Kremlin-connected officials.

Russian Federation has repeatedly denied allegations of interfering in the USA election previous year that brought Trump to power.

Maxim Vylegzhanin, Alexei Petukhov, Evgenia Shapovalova and Yulia Ivanova were all sanctioned following doping investigations into Sochi 2014.

"I will fight until the end".

He was referring to life bans imposed by Olympic officials on four Russian cross-country skiers on Thursday.

Russia's reputation as an Olympic power was sundered in 2016 when a report into systematic doping described a vast "institutional conspiracy" that included more than 1,000 athletes in more than 30 sports, and tainted the drug-testing system at the 2012 and 2014 Olympics.

The United States and Russian Federation are nearing an agreement on arrangements for Syria as the Islamic State group nears defeat.
