Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed the claims that he has any links with former U.S. National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, after a widely-circulated photo of him sharing a dinner event with Trump’s ex-official in Moscow in 2015 surfaced in media.

Putin brushed aside the allegations, saying he barely spoke to Flynn and only came to know his identity later, writes the BBC.

Putin also rebuffed the speculations that he has compromising information about U.S. President Donald Trump, adding that the two have no relationship and have not met ever, notes The Guardian.
