The latest example was broadcast on Sunday night on American network NBC, with interviewer Megyn Kelly repeatedly quizzing Mr Putin on whether his government has tried to interfere in U.S. politics. Putin asked. "Have you all lost your senses?"
Kelly also asked the Russian president what kind of relationship he had with the American president and if he had any damaging information on him.
The Russian leader was quoted as saying by TV Line that he had not seen any proof of his country's interference during the US election and the USA intelligence officials had been misled. I told them the same thing I tell you.
"It's wonderful for me: you've made a sensation out of nothing and turned it into a tool to struggle against the sitting president".
Kelly asked Putin if he was holding any kind of damaging information about Trump, either involving Trump's finances or a visit Trump made to Russian Federation as a businessman.
Sure, Putin didn't even know who that guy was sitting next to him at a Moscow dinner (Michael Flynn).
Flynn is one among a number of current and former Trump associates at the center of investigations into whether anyone close to the president helped Russian Federation interfere in the US election, and whether any crimes were committed.
Russian President Vladimir Putin says he has no knowledge of a reported pre-inauguration proposal by Jared Kushner - US President Donald Trump's son-in-law and top aide - to set up a secret, bug-proof communications channel with the Kremlin. And out of this sensation you created a weapon of war against the president.
Putin was asked about reports of long-standing corruption and repression of dissent in Russian Federation.
Granted, Kelly is no foreign affairs reporter or hard-nosed journalist.
The program's one wrinkle, such as it was, involved a segment called "The Kids' Table", which kicked off by having children talk about the importance of manners, inter-cut with cable news talking heads interrupting each other and bickering.
He said he never met Trump on any of his trips to Moscow. Warner said he meant to use that time to ask Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Adm. Mike Rogers about reports that Trump had urged them to say publicly there was no collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign. Mr Trump denies the claims. "You and I, you and I personally, have a much closer relationship than I had with Mr. Flynn", Putin told Kelly.
"They [U.S. Intelligence committees] have been misled, and they aren't analyzing the information in its entirety".
There were plenty of other denials - for example Mr Putin said he barely spoke to former USA security adviser Michael Flynn at a dinner in Moscow in 2015, saying: "I didn't really talk to him".
There is no "direct" proof that Russian Federation interfered in last year's US presidential election, President Vladimir Putin said Monday.
Protesters gather to rally against US President Donald Trump's firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey on May 10.
