Putin Praises Trump, Assails Sanctions, Vows To Defend 'Great Power' Russia

Russian President Vladimir Putin visits the Samara bakery and confectionery complex in Samara yesterday

Last week President Vladimir Putin announced that Russia has developed six new strategic nuclear weapons systems, including an intercontinental nuclear-powered cruise missile, an intercontinental underwater drone and a maneuverable hypersonic glide vehicle, that were created to render all U.S. capabilities aimed at undermining the Russian nuclear deterrent obsolete. Both Putin and Trump met during various worldwide summits previous year and Putin said that "I have no disappointment at all", When asked about meeting President Trump.

Although he lavished praise on the president, Putin was not at all complimentary about American politics, because "it has demonstrated its inefficiency and has been eating himself up".

Russia-U.S. ties long have been strained by the Ukrainian crisis, the war in Syria and other issues, and Moscow's hopes for better ties with the United States under Trump haven't materialized.

"I made some exaggerations", he said.

Putin, 65, has been president or prime minister since 1999. They should at least say - you know, there is such notion as the excessive act - we did not want this but the events moved in such way but we will do everything to return them in the legal framework.

"In the final count you should realize that people in Russia live in accordance with Russian laws and not USA laws, and it will remain so".

He added with a smile: "But I liked doing that, it was my job for many years".

Yanukovych was elected the president of Ukraine in 2010.

He added that there is a little chance of Britain getting involved in what James described as a "shooting war" with Russian Federation, provided we "invest properly in defence".

'Those who serve us with poison will eventually swallow it and poison themselves, ' he said. "There was no word, conversely, there was the complete support of those who committed the coup d'├ętat", Putin claimed.

"Yes, this will be a global catastrophe for the world".

"It just does not distract me from the tasks I consider paramount for our country, " he stated when asked to comment on him being labelled the world's "main villain" in the West.
