Russia has nothing to do with the ongoing political scandals in the United States, the chief of one of the biggest Russian lenders told CNBC Thursday.
The White House is once again embroiled in new controversy after Donald Trump Jr, the oldest son of the president, met a Russia lawyer who allegedly possessed damaging information on Hillary Clinton, his dad's opponent during the presidential campaign. This comes after security agencies blamed Russia for interfering in the last presidential race.
However, Andrey Kostin, CEO of VTB Bank, told CNBC that he doesn't think Russia played a big role in the U.S. 2016 election and instead it's minding its own business.
"I think you in America should, first of all, decide who is your president, what's his family doing, what's the Congress role, what the secret services are doing," he said.
