Vladimir Putin blames United States for global cyber attack

Controversial Russian president Vladimir Putin showed off his piano skills Sunday before meeting with Chinese president Xi Jinping in Beijing.

Putin went on to add that while he's paying close attention to the actions of Kim Jong-Un, he doesn't necessarily want to jump into a situation where the world is forcing North Korea's hand.

Asked at a news briefing in Beijing on Monday about his performance, Putin said he had just been idly toying around with the keys while he waited for his meeting to start with Chinese leader Xi Jinping on the sidelines of an worldwide forum.

Another reporter at the news conference asked what tune Putin would play for US President Donald Trump if they were to meet.

The Russian president called on all parties to "find peaceful solutions".

The president said Russian Federation was not behind last week's attacks, while ridiculing the United States.




"In order to attract them, it is necessary to create corresponding conditions and for this purposes the programs I spoke about are worked out", the Russian leader said.

North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency called the missile a "new ground-to-ground medium long-range strategic ballistic rocket", and said the "Hwasong-12" was "capable of carrying a large, heavy nuclear warhead".

The White House in a statement said the "latest provocation" shows a need for all countries to implement stronger sanctions against North Korea, and singled out Russian Federation.

Evening Song has become something of an unofficial anthem of St Petersburg (formerly known as Leningrad) and is usually performed with words praising the city.

"This missile launch presented no threat to us, but it of course escalates this conflict and there is nothing good about that, " he stressed.

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) will meet on Tuesday to discuss Pyongyang's latest defiant move.
