Russia: 'Provocation!' — Putin denies Russian interference in Italian election

SOT, Vladimir Putin, Russian President (Russian): «In Italy? Yes, I heard about that. We see what happens in some European countries including Italy. Take Germany, for example, as they were preparing for federal elections. Now it is thrown on Italy. There is only one goal. First of all, we have excellent relations with Italy. These relations are multi-faceted with different political powers in... Еще Italy. I have said on many occasions I'm on good terms with Mr. Berlusconi and Mr. Prodi who have been on opposite ends of the political spectrum. Despite that I have good relations with each of them. What I mean is that both Russia and Italy have a national consensus that regulates our bilateral relations and their development at an international level. We value it very much. It never occurred to us to interfere in any country's elections including Italy. Never occurred to us. Because our relations with Italy are dearer to us. We don't see any point in that. Because we know no matter what party comes to power there is a national consensus that regulates development of political relations with Russia. And in general, we're certain that Russia and Italy will continue to develop positive relations. Why do we need to do that? This is a provocation aimed at wrecking the above-mentioned national consensus which regulates relations between our countries.» *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE* *SCRIPT TO FOLLOW*
