Moscow, Monday

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said he barely spoke to former US National Security Adviser Michael Flynn at a dinner in Moscow in 2015.

A widely-posted photo of the event has fuelled speculation about possible links between US President Donald Trump’s administration and the Kremlin. But Putin told NBC he was only told afterwards who Flynn was.

Flynn was sacked in February after misleading the White House about his ties with Russia’s envoy to the US. Flynn later invoked his right against self-incrimination, declining to testify in the US Senate Intelligence Committee about his Russian ties and alleged Moscow meddling in America’s 2016 presidential elections.
