The Russian President Vladimir Putin said that all attempts of the West to put pressure on Russia on the issue of the situation in Ukraine does not help to unleash the situation. The head of Russia stated it in the interview with the Serbian newspaper.
According to him, everyone should understand that the unilateral restrictive measures, which are now imposed against Russia, are illegitimate. Moreover, it does not help to resolve the conflict in the east of Ukraine, and will only complicate the dialogue.
In addition, the Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he was hoping that the partners understood that all attempts to intimidate Russia are reckless. He also stressed that the West should think about the consequences of the discord between the major nuclear powers, and how it would affect strategic stability.
At the same time, Putin said he was ready for further cooperation with Western partners. According to Putin, to resolve the crisis, Ukraine needs a domestic dialogue to discuss the constitutional structure of the country.
