Obama's decision has put President-elect Donald Trump on the spot.

Nevertheless, Putin rejected the reports about Trumps meetings with escorts which, according to the leaked dossier, took place in an FSB-controlled hotel in Moscow, the Ritz Carlton, during a 2013 Miss Universe competition in Russian Federation.

U.S. participation, especially if an agreement is reached, would be the first indication of the enhanced U.S. -Russia cooperation that President Vladimir Putin and Trump have been forecasting.

Trump said he thought that "Brexit is going to end up being a great thing" and welcomed the fall in the value of the pound for having helped to boost the attractiveness of British products overseas, The Times said.

"I don't know Mr. Trump personally, I have never met him and don't know what he will do on the global arena", Putin said, according to Russian state media.

"When Trump visited Moscow several years ago, he wasn't a political figure". "We are witnessing the continuation of a fierce internal political struggle-despite the fact that the presidential elections are over and they ended with the conclusive victory of Mr. Trump. Of course not, it's complete rubbish", Putin said.

On Monday the Kremlin said it would wait until Trump takes office on Friday before commenting on any proposals.

Putin went on to compare those behind the dossier unfavourably with prostitutes. They have no moral limits whatsoever. With our opponentsBut this is a unique case that such methods are used against the US president elect, this never happened before.

"This shows a significant level of degradation of the political elite in the West".

Because Putin helped Trump over the finish line, he will now want him to lift the economic sanctions that President Obama courageously imposed upon Russian Federation as a result of its action in Ukraine. He tried unsuccessfully to meet Putin.

"Whether or not they want this, the people who do this cause huge damage to the interests of the United States, just huge", he added.

He said some seem "ready to organize a "Maidan" in Washington", in reference to the alleged USA role in organizing protests in the main square of the Ukrainian capital of Kiev.

Rep. Peter King (R-NY), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, agrees with Putin that the 35-page report is totally phony, but he warned that the Russian president is an "enemy of the United States".

There was no immediate response from the president-elect's team on Trump's change of heart on Russian Federation. Trump mentioned Russian activity in Iran and Syria ("Syria's now 100 percent back in their fold"), and "virtually every other place", adding: "To be scoffed at and thrown around the way we're being thrown around is absolutely unthinkable".
