Both US, Russia should cut nuclear arsenals: American author

A number of celebrities have announced their interest to join the Women's March on Washington, dubbed as anti-Trump march, to be held on the day after Donald Trump's inauguration. He said America had to focus on fixing its own problems before taking on any foreign confrontations.

Trump later tried to walk that comment back, though he has made equally questionable comments about the situation with Crimea as recently as this past weekend.

"How can you do anything to improve Russian-US relations if fake stories are thrown in such as the intervention of some hackers during the election campaign?"

He said Russian Federation hopes Mr Trump's team "will not engage in moralizing and will try to understand the interests of their partners just as they clearly uphold their own interests".

Nevertheless, Putin rejected the reports about Trumps meetings with escorts which, according to the leaked dossier, took place in an FSB-controlled hotel in Moscow, the Ritz Carlton, during a 2013 Miss Universe competition in Russian Federation.

"They have sanctions on Russian Federation - let's see if we can make some good deals with Russian Federation", the Republican president-elect was quoted as saying by The Times. "She's requesting a meeting and we'll have a meeting right after I get into the White House and it'll be, I think we're gonna get something done very quickly". He said US involvement in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation would be contingent on whether member states have met their financial obligations.

On Monday the Kremlin said it would wait until Trump takes office on Friday before commenting on any proposals.

At a press conference today with the newly elected President of Moldova, Russian President Vladimir Putin did not miss the opportunity to shed light on his view of the latest scandal started by BuzzFeed last week.

The allegations claim Russian Federation has damaging information about the USA president-elect's business interests, and salacious video evidence of his private life, including claims of using prostitutes at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Moscow. "We have to show some strength, " he added. The Russians replied tit-for-tat; they expelled 35 US diplomats and closed two USA compounds operating near Moscow. Trump has arbitrarily dismissed the findings and smeared the agencies' integrity.

Putin said Trump's opponents had "certain objectives".

As I said up top, it wasn't always that way. For one thing, I think nuclear weapons should be way down and reduced very substantially, that's part of it.
