Putin makes first comments on Russian agent jailed in US

Russian President Vladimir Putin has made his first comment about a self-admitted Russia agent sentenced in the United States.

Putin’s Saturday comments in Beijing were made after Russian foreign agent Maria Butina was sentences to 18 months in prison.

"It's an outrage," Putin told reporters. "It's not clear what she was convicted of or what crime she committed. I think it's a prime example of 'saving face.' They arrested her and put the girl in jail. But there was nothing on her, so in order not to look totally stupid they gave her, fixed her up, with an 18-month sentence to show that she was guilty of something."
