Former US president George W. Bush accused Russia on Thursday of meddling in the US 2016 presidential election, calling Russian President Vladimir Putin a "brilliant tactician".

"There's pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled", Bush said at a talk in the United Arab Emirates. "Whether they affected the outcome is another question", ABC News reported Bush saying at the event. "Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results", Bush added.

Bush's comments publicly and directly run contrary to those of fellow Republican and President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly disputed claims that the Kremlin interfered in the election to his advantage and that members of his campaign team colluded with Russian agents.

"The decay of the Soviet Union is hard on him". Therefore, many of his movements (are) to regain Soviet hegemony.

Putin, said, "The press is constantly, looking for weakness", said the former president. "We ought to say thank you and welcome them". That is why North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is so important, "said the former United States president".
