The Russian president himself, Vladimir Putin, has clarified the alleged association of Russia from President Donald Trump’s attacks against former VP’s son, Hunter Biden.
Vladimir Putin and Russia have been the center of one of the national arguments amid the Presidential election campaign. Both camps have pointed fingers against the other, highlighting their association with Russian dealings.
The media outlet notes, “For years, his fixer Rudy Giuliani has been circling the globe in search of dirt on Hunter and his father Joe Biden.” That said, Giuliani presented Hunter’s alleged laptop hard drive containing supposed dealings with Ukraine.
Giuliani’s findings were used by Trump during his debate, as he attempts to undermine his rival, Joe Biden.
This incredible story describes how, as the Trump White House was trying to lure the WSJ to report on the purported Hunter Biden emails, Rudy Giuliani went full-on Leeroy Jenkins and dumped everything on the NY Post. https://t.co/PvQWDGfSGC pic.twitter.com/vtyPqY5XxN

Vladimir Putin sees nothing criminal in Hunter’s dealings
Reuters reports that the Russian president officially spoke up against Trump’s comments during the Presidential Debate. Accordingly, Putin believes that “he saw nothing criminal” in Hunter Biden’s past business dealings with Ukraine or Russia.
Vladimir Putin addressed Trump’s remarks through a broadcast on Russian state TV. Per Reuters, Putin said:
“Yes, in Ukraine he (Hunter Biden) had or maybe still has a business, I don’t know. It doesn’t concern us. It concerns the Americans and the Ukrainians.
“But well yes he had at least one company, which he practically headed up, and judging from everything he made good money. I don’t see anything criminal about this, at least we don’t know anything about this (being criminal).”
And there it is. Putin said today that he saw nothing criminal in Hunter Biden's past business ties with Ukraine or Russia, in a sharp break with Trump.
With Trump’s re-election unlikely, Putin’s got no more use for him. https://t.co/SKZ4yery9p

Moreover, the media outlet describes that Putin’s stance on Trump is now “less friendly.” Before, he has long praised Trump for the POTUS’s desire to have “better ties” with Moscow.
However, it appears there’s been a shift in impressions. Putin did say that Russia is ready to work with “any U.S. leader.”
Discovery of Hunter Biden dealing found suspicious
It should be noted that numerous media outlets have already pointed out the lack of evidence to support the alleged unethical practices by Hunter Biden in Ukraine.
The Rolling Stones points out that even how Giuliani found Biden’s hard drive was “fishy, to say the least.” Accordingly, the story entails that a laptop was found at a Delaware computer repair shop in 2019.
It was left there for repairs but was never retrieved. It is said that the laptop had a Beau Biden Foundation sticker on it.
The owner of the shop, who is said to be a Trump supporter, could not even confirm if it was truly Hunter Biden who dropped off the laptop in question.
Moreover, The Rolling Stones further narrates that the Post said the existence of the said hard drive was tipped off by no other than, Trump’s adviser, Steve Bannon. Who, by the way, is currently facing criminal charges for fraud.
Biden has repeatedly slammed such news of not being true. Meanwhile, when Trump is also facing foreign dealing controversies. This time with China.
