US and Russia trade barbs at Munich Security Conference
Top Russian and American officials exchanged barbs at the annual Munich Security Conference in Germany over the US indictment of 13 Russians accused of interfering in the 2016 presidential election.
Tensions between Russia and the US over Moscow’s alleged meddling in the 2016 US presidential election were on full display during the second day of a high-profile security conference in Germany featuring world leaders and top diplomats.
At the conference, British Prime Minister Theresa May gave a keynote speech calling for a new UK–EU treaty to maintain defence and security cooperation after Brexit to keep citizens safe.
