Putin says U.S. and Russia May Work Together to Investigate Hacking

US President Donald Trump and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin attend a joint press conference after a meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, on July 16, 2018.

President Vladimir Putin says that Moscow and Washington may work together to conduct criminal investigations into Russian intelligence officials accused of hacking in the 2016 U.S. election campaign.

Asked if Russia could extradite 12 Russian military intelligence officers indicted in the U.S. the other day on charges of hacking to the Democratic election campaign, Putin challenged the U.S. to take good thing about a 1999 agreement envisaging mutual legal assistance.

He said the agreement allows U.S. officials to request that Russian authorities interrogate the 12 suspects, adding that U.S. officials could request to get contained in such interrogations.

Putin noted that Russia would expect the U.S. to send back the favor and cooperate within the Russian probe against William Browder, a British investor charged of financial crimes in Russia. Browder would have been a motivator behind a U.S. law targeting Russian officials over human rights abuses.

Putin spoke from a summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in Helsinki on Monday.
