The Russian President on relations with the West and WWIII

Speaking to the press the newly reelected Russian President Vladimir Putin said that West’s reaction to the Russian presidential election is no surprise: “What did you expect from them, a standing ovation? They are fighting against us, fighting militarily.”

As “a new generation of specialists” with a “more realistic view on current events” are replacing the old ones, West will act against Russia “in a more sophisticated way.” However, its ultimate goals will remain unchanged.

A full-scale conflict between Russia and NATO cannot be ruled out. “I think that everything is possible in the modern world. But I’m saying – and this is obvious to everyone – that, in this case, we will find ourselves just one step away from a full-scale World War Three. I think that hardly anyone is interested in having it.”
