Democratic candidate headquarters called on Republican Donald Trump to explain the Kremlin's role in his campaign
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton once again criticizes her rival Donald Trump, Republican candidate for U.S. President, for his pro-Russian position.
In her speech, published by The Washington Post, Clinton says that sometimes Trump resorts to praising Russia's leader in his statements.
Clinton says: "Trump himself heaps praise on Putin and embraces pro-Russian policies. He talks casually of abandoning our NATO allies, recognizing Russia's annexation of Crimea, and of giving the Kremlin a free hand in Eastern Europe more generally."
Clinton also speaks negatively about Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling him a supporter of "extreme nationalism".
Clinton says: "And the grand godfather of this global brand of extreme nationalism is Russian President Vladimir Putin".
Earlier, the Clinton campaign headquarters urged her opponent, Republican Donald Trump, to explain the Kremlin's role in his campaign. Full speech is here
