US Wants to Create Problems During Russian Presidential Elections - Putin

Alexey Druzhinin  Presidential press service  TASS

Both Trump and Putin will be in attendance representing their respective nations, but it is unknown if they will have a formal one-to-one discussion.

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

President Vladimir Putin on Thursday accused the United States of inventing doping allegations against Russian athletes to influence next year's presidential election, which he is widely expected to contest and win.

"Here is what worries me: the Olympics start in February, and when are our presidential elections?"

Trump's election inspired hopes here of improved relations with Washington, but that optimism has vanished amid the US inquiries into the Kremlin's interference in the 2016 campaign.

United States intelligence agencies said earlier this year the Russian government had sought to help Donald Trump win the election.

"We heard the announcement of Donald Trump himself that he is planning such a meeting with President Putin", Mr Lavrov said.

Four Russian cross-country skiers have been found guilty of doping by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

"I will fight until the end".

In September, after the World Anti-Doping Agency dismissed 95 cases of suspected Russian doping, citing lack of evidence, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and 16 other national anti-doping organizations demanded Russia still be banned from next year's Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.

The US was home to "the main companies that order and pay for television rights, the main sponsors and advertisers", he said. The investigation said the cheating peaked at the 2014 Winter Olympics in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, where Russian secret agents engineered an elaborate system of doping.
