ST. PETERSBURG, June 17. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday he believes using the anti-Russian card in the election campaign in the United States is counterproductive.

"It only remains to regret that the Russian card is used as some small coin nearly in each election campaign in the United States," Putin said at a meeting with the chief executives of the leading news agencies. "This, in my view, is absolutely counterproductive."

He underscored that the Russian authorities will work with any newly elected president.

"Regardless of any pre-election rhetoric, we will judge not by words but by deeds of the newly elected head of the American state, and will certainly be seeking ways to normalize relations, our cooperation in the sphere of economy, international security," Putin said.

"Regardless of any pre-election rhetoric, we will judge not by words but by deeds of the newly elected head of the American state, and will certainly be seeking ways to normalize relations, our cooperation in the sphere of economy, international security," Putin said.

He underscored that Russia and the United States have many problems that may only be effectively solved jointly, including the problem of international terrorism.

Speaking about the election period in Spain and promises given by parties, Putin said that like in the case with the United States, Russia will work with any parties and leaders.

Nevertheless, the Russian president paid attention to the fact that 10 years ago he warned European politicians of the danger of the migration policy conducted by them.

"The country should accept only the number of foreigners that it may adapt to local conditions of the labor market and adapt to the local language and cultural traditions," he said, underscoring that many people live for decades in Spain while not speaking Spanish.

"We do not exult or accuse anyone. It’s not ideal in our country too, but it seems to me that your problem is more urgent because migration flows that come to you are completely alien people," Putin explained.
