Pentagon reverses itself and reveals Vladimir Putin ‘tried to muck around’ in midterm elections

Asked if U.S. -Russian ties had become more strained since he took over the Pentagon past year after Trump became president, Mattis said, "There's no doubt the relationship has worsened".

Russian President Vladimir Putin "tried again to muck around in our elections this last month, and we are seeing a continued effort along those lines", Mattis told an audience at the Reagan National Defense Forum in Simi Valley, California on Saturday.

Mattis said the relationship between the United States and Russian Federation has "no doubt" worsened amid Russia's continued efforts to intervene in the U.S. electoral process.

Mattis also asserted that Russian Federation had interfered in the November midterm elections for Congress, though he gave no details nor provided any further evidence.

Ahead of the November 6 midterm congressional elections, US intelligence and law enforcement officials accused Russian Federation of trying to influence the vote.

Mattis also touched on the situation in the Kerch Strait with Russia's seizure of Ukrainian ships and sailors, which the US President Donald trump has canceled a meeting with Putin on the sidelines of the G20 summit.

"We'll do whatever necessary to defend", Mattis said.

"Based on the fact that the ships and sailors have not been returned to Ukraine from Russian Federation, I have decided it would be best for all parties concerned to cancel my previously scheduled meeting in Argentina with President Vladimir Putin", Trump said.

CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta said "this is probably the revelation of the day".
