Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday mocked the deadly Jan. 6 riot of former President Trump’s supporters at the U.S. Capitol as a “stroll” while arguing dysfunction in the United States was the real obstacle to stable relations.

“Some of the people who took a stroll to the U.S. Congress — 150 people were arrested, they face imprisonment from 15 to 25 years,” Putin said during a meeting on increasing investment activity, according to The Associated Press.
