He also addressed the possibility of a summit between the USA and Russian Federation.

Putin spoke with Austrian news outlet ORF TV ahead of a visit to Vienna on Tuesday.

"Indeed, Donald Trump and I have, firstly, met a couple of times at various worldwide venues", Putin said according to an official transcript available on the Kremlin's website.

Mr. Putin has even called Mr. Kurz a "friend" and, given Europe's mounting anger with Mr. Trump, the Russian leader has spotted a chance to drive a wedge between the European Union and the US.

Neither the White House nor the Russian Embassy responded to requests for comment from CNBC.

Putin did, however, say that he was "nervous" over Telegram's potential to be used as a terrorist communication tool, but he promised a "civilized" solution instead of the haphazard blocking attempts unleashed against the messenger. "I think this is the main reason".

"It's related to the pragmatic national interests of the United States, as its current leadership perceives them", he said.

"We would like to be given access to our citizens, to Yulia, and we would like to have the opportunity to take part fully in the investigation", said Putin.

"The 13 people indicted are accused of an elaborate plot to disrupt the us election that allegedly included running a huge social media campaign from their headquarters in St. Petersburg, dubbed the "'troll farm".

Putin compared Prigozhin to American billionaire George Soros.

"They are temporary but we will keep them there while it is necessary and is required by our economic interests", he said.
