What They're Saying: Vladimir Putin

“It’s another clear attempt by the USA to spread its jurisdiction to other states. And I have no doubt -- it’s a clear attempt not to allow Mr. [Sepp]  Blatter to be re-elected as president of FIFA, which is a great violation of the operating principles of international organisations. The U.S. prosecutor, as our media report, has already said that those FIFA officials have committed a crime. As if the prosecutor didn’t know about the principle of the presumption of innocence.”
