Russian leader Vladimir Putin on Friday dismissed a question about whether he interfered with the U.S. election, instead ripping Democratic leaders for blaming their loss on Russia.
“Democrats are losing on every front and looking for people to blame everywhere,” Putin said during his annual press conference in Moscow, according to the Washington Post. “They need to learn to lose with dignity.”
Putin pointed to Republican wins in Congress and asked, “Did we do that, too?”
He credited Trump’s win to his ability to understand “the mood of the people.”
The Russian leader also suggested the election interference “unveiled true information” about the Democratic Party, which was proven by the ousting of Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
