No extradition for Russian hackers, declares Putin

Russian president Vladimir Putin has expressly 'ruled out' the extradition of several Russian nationals who are accused of interfering in the last US presidential elections and orchestrating disinformation campaigns.

Putin has denied that the Kremlin controls or directs the actions of Russian hackers, stating that such hackers neither represent the Russian state nor Russian authorities.

In an interview with NBC's Megyn Kelly, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that there is no question of Russia extraditing thirteen Russian nationals who have been indicted in the United States for interfering with the 2016 Presidential elections and running disinformation campaigns on social media.
