Putin refused to weigh in on the speculations that the former Vice President himself was “getting a lot of money from Russia,” as insinuated by Trump, responding “no comment” when asked about the claims.
The Russian leader likewise noted he was unaware of any “commercial relationships” between Hunter Biden and Yelena Baturina, the widow of ex-Moscow mayor, Yury Luzhkov – another issue raised by Trump during the debate. One of Russia’s richest women, Baturina, used to run an investment and construction company and later founded an investment fund. The Russian president said that the businesswoman and billionaire “has had numerous business contacts” but he does not know if there have been any Americans among them.
As for his own relations with Luzhkov, Putin described them as “respectful” and “trusting” but added that they had always remained strictly official.
