What does the captioned phrase want to mean?


WASHINGTON — The embattled F.B.I. agent who oversaw the opening of the Russia investigation mounted an aggressive defense of himself and the F.B.I. on Thursday, rejecting accusations that he let his private political views bias his official actions and labeling Republicans’ preoccupation with him “another victory notch in Putin’s belt.”

It means Putin has won again (notched another victory in his belt) because the Republicans are spending their time and energy investigating the FBI instead of investigating Russia.
