ST PETERSBURG, Russia (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday he wouldn't judge U.S. President Donald Trump for quitting a landmark climate pact, but said he thought Washington could have stayed in the agreement.

Speaking at an economic forum in St Petersburg, Putin said the 2015 Paris accord was a good document, but that Russia had not yet ratified it because it was waiting for certain technical details to be settled.
