Russian chess champion Garry Kasparov on Sunday said Russian President Vladimir Putin "skipped over Poland and went straight to Wisconsin," Business Insider reports.

Kasparov, a longtime critic of Putin, made his comments in Vancouver following a talk he gave at TED 2017 in Vancouver, Canada about the power of artificial intelligence.

"As we found out, Putin skipped over Poland and went straight to Wisconsin," Kasparov said about the Russian leader's impact on the American election.

Wisconsin surprisingly, and overwhelmingly, voted for President Donald Trump on Election Day by a margin of about 22,000 votes. It was the first time since 1984 Democrats lost the state. Soon after, the Clinton campaign announced it would participate in a recount effort sought by Green Party candidate Jill Stein after officials cited voter concerns about Russian hacking.

Kasparov in 2015 likened Putin to Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin on Bill Maher's show "Overtime Overseas" on HBO and later said NATO countries like Latvia were being used as a battle ground where Russian soldiers were facing U.S. soldiers during Russia's illegal military intervention in Ukraine.

Maher jokingly responded, "Wake me when (Putin) takes Poland."
