Putin Says He Will 'Never' Extradite Russians Charged By Mueller

"We are not surprised by (Putin's) statement, and the American people should rest assured that we are fully prepared", Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said.

The 13 Russians were indicted last month, with the indictment claiming that they had "communicated with unwitting individuals associated with the Trump campaign". It was Kelly's second interview with the Russian leader. Kelly asked, referring to Russia's campaign to interfere in the 2016 USA election. "Now it's they who have to catch up and bear all due consequences, first of all for the purses of their taxpayers", the source said.

Kelly then touched on a few facets of Russia's meddling, which the USA intelligence community said was done specifically on orders from the Kremlin itself.

Kelly asked Putin about Mueller's indictments of 13 Russian nationals who are accused of using fake personas to plant political ads and promote political rallies on American social media sites.

Air Force Gen. John Hyten, the commander of U.S. Strategic Command, warned that Russian Federation is continuing to violate the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty with banned ground-launched cruise missiles.

Kelly, who worked as a corporate lawyer before pursuing a career in journalism, said she did have a law degree.

He said the underwater drone "goes faster than any surface ship that exists today, I wouldn't even tell you the speed, it's incredible".

The Trump administration delayed publication of an initial draft of the new policy, according to US officials, and began reworking it out of concern that it focused too squarely on North Korea and Iran.

Russian President Vladimir Putin told NBC's Megyn Kelly last week that he would "never" extradite the 13 Russian nationals who were charged by special counsel Robert Mueller with conspiring to interfere in the 2016 USA election. And the U.S. has extradition treaties with more than 100 countries - including Russian Federation.

"The entire system of work to counter extremism should operate effectively", Putin said at a meeting of the FSB's board, according to a Kremlin press release.

While the United States is now going through extradition proceedings, it's highly unlikely the Russian government will agree to give up the defendants, in part, because they were acting on orders from the highest ranks. "Does the United States extradite its citizens to anyone?" he asked.
