(ANTIMEDIA) During a recent interview, Russian President Vladimir Putin defended the July hack of the Democratic National Committee, hailing it as a public service. But he also defended himself and his office against allegations regarding Russia’s involvement.

Listen, does it even matter who hacked this data?’’ Putin said, adding that “[t]he important thing is the content that was given to the public.’’

The attack on DNC servers was never officially tied to the Russian government, but U.S. officials and Democratic leadership blamed Russia, accusing them of committing the hack to help Donald Trump. But even Trump insinuated Russia was involved with the leak, which was published by Wikileaks.

When the hack was made public, Glenn Greenwald, whose past encounters with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange seem far from friendlytold WNYC that Russia could have hacked the DNC. After all, “[g]overnments do spy on each other and do try to influence events in other countries. … Certainly the U.S. government has a very long and successful history of doing exactly that.

But to Assange, whose organization disclosed the information leaked from the DNC, there’sno proof of [Russia’s involvement] whatsoever.” He added that WikiLeaks has “not disclosed our source, and of course, this is a diversion that’s being pushed by the Hillary Clinton campaign.”

Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor and whistleblower who now lives in exile in Russia, offered his two cents on the entire ordeal. “If Russia hacked the #DNC, they should be condemned for it. But during the #Sony hack, the FBI presented evidence,” he observed.
