President Vladimir Putin says Russia is closely watching the US election campaign, describing both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as “very smart people.”

The Russian president said in an interview with the Bloomberg news agency released on Friday – and filmed together with Russian partners  including the Kremlin press service – that Moscow will be ready to work with any administration if they want it to.

Putin has previously hailed Trump as a “colourful” person, fuelling speculation that Moscow would favour a Trump presidency.
