US President Donald Trump said about Russia's "interference" in the US elections, which is at odds with his words at a press conference in Helsinki. Political analyst Stanislav Byshok on Sputnik radio commented on Trump's statement.

US President Donald Trump said that he still trusts the findings of the US intelligence services about "Russian interference" in the elections in the US, which is at odds with what he said at a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

"I accept the conclusions of the intelligence community that there was interference (Russia - Ed.), There could be other people, and there was no collusion (with Russia - ed.)," Trump told reporters, adding that he trusts intelligence services .

Earlier, at a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Trump said that in the scandal with the alleged "Russian interference" in the US elections, "both sides are to blame" and that he does not see evidence of "Russian interference" in the election, for which he criticized in the US.

As reported by Reuters, Trump said that at a press conference he made a reservation, saying "I see no reason why this could be Russia," but was actually going to say "I see no reason why this could not be Russia."

The political analyst of the CIS-EMO International Monitoring Organization Stanislav Byshok told Sputnik radio why he thought the American president changed rhetoric.

"For Trump, it was necessary to meet with Putin in Helsinki in principle and get a credit of trust from those supporting forces who are interested in normalizing relations with Russia." On the other hand, he understands that it takes too long to fight on several fronts - on the outside and on the inside - it's hard enough for him.Trump is well aware that the belief in Russia's "interference" in the elections in 2016 is a consensus for the Democratic Party, and even for his own Republican Party. To expect that this was not, he risks incurring the insults and anger of his own party, losing a significant part of the support.To be reelected for the next term, one must be more flexible in matters on which there is consensus within the American political elite. in that case, I think it was a compromise: on the one hand, Trump confirms that Russia is an important partner of the United States, and, nevertheless, is going on a compromise with the anti-Russian elite. He says: well, I'll give you this thesis, some interference was, but it did not affect the elections, because I was elected by American citizens, "Stanislav Byoshok said.

Investigating the alleged "interference" of Russia in the US elections, as well as the alleged links between Donald Trump and Russia, which are denied in the White House and in the Kremlin, is dealt with by the special prosecutor Robert Muller, as well as by the upper and lower chambers of the US Congress. At the same time, no evidence of any "intervention" was given, despite the fact that the investigation has been going on for more than a year.
