Russian President Vladimir Putin, interviewed by Megyn Kelly for NBC's "Meet the Press", said the 13 Russians who have been indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller as part of the Russia probe "do not represent the Russian state, the Russian authorities." He added that he'll "never, never" extradite those Russian nationals to the United States.

"What they did specifically, I have no idea. I do not know what they were guided by ... Let them just not talk to the press. Let them provide some materials, specifics and data. We'll be prepared to look at them and talk about it.”
