"If they are patriotically minded, they start making their own contribution which they deem right in the fight against those who demean Russian Federation", he said.

"All this vividly confirms the strength of our trade and economic ties and their solid potential, as well as the particularly privileged nature of the strategic partnership between Russian Federation and India", Putin said in statement.

Moreover he said that any influence there may have been from any hackers during the 2016 presidential campaign was likely inconsequential.

"No hackers can have a radical impact on an election campaign in another country", adding that "no information can be imprinted in voters' minds, in the minds of a nation, and influence the final outcome and the final result".

The House intelligence committee says it is issuing subpoenas for Michael Flynn and Michael Cohen - President Donald Trump's former national security adviser and his personal lawyer - as well as their businesses as part of its investigation into Russian activities during last year's election.

"How can you be friends with someone you don't know?" he said.

However, he said that even if hackers did intervene it's unlikely they could swing a foreign election.

Putin insisted that whether he liked Trump or not was irrelevant, as the important thing was to establish a good personal and political relationship regardless.

Without naming any particular country, Putin said that Russian Federation has faced attempts to hurt its legitimate interests. Russian Federation never engages in activities of this kind, and we do not need it.

Nevertheless, the United States intelligence community and many Democrats have accused Russian Federation of "hacking" the USA presidential election process past year, specifically a number of e-mails belonging to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) that point to alleged corruption within the Democratic party.

Russian Federation and India enjoyed a decades-long alliance forged during the Cold War, when the Soviet Union was New Delhi's largest trading partner, diplomatic ally and main arms supplier, providing everything from tanks to aircraft.
