Russian President Vladimir Putin says President Donald Trump's political foes have prevented him from fulfilling his election promises.

Asked if Russia is annoyed with Trump's unpredictability, Putin said Thursday that it's linked to a "strong resistance inside the country."

Russia has rejoiced at Trump's victory in the U.S. election, but its hopes for rebuilding ties with Washington have been shattered by congressional and FBI investigations into Trump campaign ties with Russia.

Speaking at the Valdai forum of policy experts, Putin said Trump's political adversaries "haven't allowed him to fulfill any of his election plans."

At the same time, he added that Russia will remain open to cooperate with the United States.
