Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Donald Trump talk "regularly", the Russian president told an Austrian news outlet ahead of his visit to Vienna.

What about the US trade policies?

On the eve of the visit, which saw the Russian president protected by 800 soldiers, 800 policemen and 17 military vehicles, Putin had to face much tougher questions in an interview with the Austrian television journalist Armin Wolf, an encounter which turned out to be the toughest grilling the Russian president has faced for some years. Special counsel Robert Mueller in February charged Yevgeny Prigozhin, a wealthy businessman dubbed "Putin's chef", and 12 others in an alleged conspiracy to meddle in the 2016 election.

"Indeed, Donald Trump and I have, firstly, met a few times at various worldwide venues", Putin said, according to an official transcript available on the Kremlin's website, CNBC reported.

"We have continued our cooperation even during hard times", Kurz said after talks with Putin.

The Hill has reached out to the White House for comment. CNN reported Trump and Putin have talked on the phone to each other eight times, and have met face-to-face twice.

"I hope there won't be any provocations, but if it happens, I think it would have very serious consequences for Ukrainian statehood in general", he said.

Putin said that in a recent phone call, "Donald said he was anxious about the possibility of a new arms race".

But Putin said internal USA politics could get in the way of a planned summit with Trump, referencing the congressional elections in November.

The interview comes amid a backdrop of worsening U.S.

"We have no plans to shut anything down", said Putin when asked if social media networks, which are harder to monitor than traditional media, would be blocked in Russian Federation.

Vladimir Putin, on a living standards drive at the start of a new presidential term, is expected to try to fix Russians' everyday problems on live TV later on Thursday, handing out real-time orders to regional governors and government ministers.

"The Russian people, the voters will decide who that will be", he said.

Another hypersonic missile is already in service, said Putin. I think this is the main reason, ' he said.

"It's related to the pragmatic national interests of the United States, as its current leadership perceives them", he said. 'Indeed, he runs a restaurant business, it is his job.

"We would like to be given access to our citizens, to Yulia, and we would like to have the opportunity to take part fully in the investigation", said Putin. "We apparently influenced the election of the USA president, and then he gifted us Europe".

Putin compared Prigozhin to American billionaire George Soros.

"Overall, we are heading in the right direction", he said. Soros is known for making $1 billion on a bet against the British pound in 1992.

He also noted that the need to get rid of the anti-Russian sanctions is already being publicly discussed in Europe. Ask the State Department why he is doing this.
