U.S. security officials are not laughing at the latest comments by Russian President Vladimir Putin about the Kremlin's attempts to interfere in U.S. elections.

Putin, speaking at an economic forum in Moscow Wednesday, dismissed U.S. allegations that Russia meddled in both the 2016 U.S. presidential election and the 2018 mid-term election as “ridiculous.”

“Or it would be ridiculous if it was not that sorrowful, because all we see now in the U.S. domestic politics ruins Russia-U.S. relations, and I am sure it harms the United States itself, too," Putin said.

"I'm telling you as a secret – yes, we will definitely do it (meddle in next year's U.S. presidential election) in order to deliver you the best of fun,” Putin joked with the audience. “Just don't tell anyone."

Despite Putin's comments, U.S. security and intelligence officials have said, consistently, that they have seen indications Russia will try to interfere with the upcoming 2020 presidential elections.
