Russian President Vladimir Putin said that dialogue between himself and his US counterpart Donald Trump "can be constructive," during an interview filmed in Moscow on Thursday.

According to the Russian leader, a possible meeting with the US president will be “useful. The only question is whether the domestic political situation in the United States would allow this [to happen]."
