Putin heaps praise on Trump, pans USA politics

Mr Browder who was once Russia's largest foreign investor told how he became Putin's'number one enemy after exposing corruption and looting in Russia

He said Western sanctions for the annexation and for Moscow's support of separatists in eastern Ukraine were "illegitimate and unfair" and said that "we will win in the long run".

"Those who serve us with poison will eventually swallow it and poison themselves", he said.

"I have no disappointment at all", Mr Putin said when asked about the United States president.

"Moreover, on a personal level, he made a very good impression on me", he added, saying the US president easily understands the specifics of issues and is a good listener.

The two leaders met on the sidelines of global summits past year.

He described Trump, whom he met with past year on the sidelines of summits in Germany and Vietnam, a "balanced" man who grasps the issues and is a good listener.

"It's possible to negotiate with him, to search for compromises", Putin added.

Talking about how he spent time talking to First Lady Melania Trump when he sat next to her during a dinner at July's G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, he said he may have exaggerated a bit. He said that he told Milania "about Siberia and Kamchatka, about fishing ... about bears on Kamchatka and tigers in the Far East".

"The United States and its partners should re-evaluate the most likely Russian courses of action and reconsider the mix of military and non-military tools required to defend North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and Ukraine from potential Russian aggression", the report says.

At the same time, the report notes that US leaders and their European allies are not yet prepared for the ways in which Russian President Vladimir Putin is poised to wage war in Ukraine and the Baltic.

He added with a smile: "But I liked doing that, it was my job for many years".

Last week President Vladimir Putin announced that Russia has developed six new strategic nuclear weapons systems, including an intercontinental nuclear-powered cruise missile, an intercontinental underwater drone and a maneuverable hypersonic glide vehicle, that were created to render all USA capabilities aimed at undermining the Russian nuclear deterrent obsolete.

"It's quite hard to interact with such a system, because it's unpredictable", he added.

During his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump said he would press for better ties with Russian Federation as a way to solve numerous world's deep-standing conflicts.

Speaking about the bitter tensions in Russia-West relations, Mr Putin said they have been rooted in Western efforts to contain and weaken Russia.

"We treat it with great respect", Putin described his response to this very Jewish characteristic. "And we know that a mother's love is truly boundless", the president said.
