Putin says Russian businessmen being persecuted in countries like Britain

Putin says Russian businessmen being persecuted in countries like Britain

Russian President Vladimir Putin, right, watches the troops marching as he and Syrian President Bashar Assad visit the Hmeimim air base in Syria, December 11, 2017.

Putin made the comments during his live televised annual phone-in with the Russian people.

Putin also addressed tariffs the US imposed on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico, and other long-term allies in the European Union, likening them to unjustified economic sanctions. Putin and his aides say it is an indispensable tool to gauge public sentiment and learn what people's real problems are.

The Russian economy has rebounded, however, and Putin emphasized that lifting the sanctions would answer common interests. It's because Russian Federation is regarded as a threat, because they perceive Russian Federation as a rival.

He also noted that the need to get rid of the anti-Russian sanctions is already being publicly discussed in Europe.

Britain has also blamed the nerve agent poisoning in the United Kingdom of a Russian former spy and his daughter on Russia, which it denies.

What did he say about the Sergei Skripal debacle?

"There are rumors circulating now that Mr. Soros is planning to make the euro highly volatile", Putin said, without providing evidence. Putin said the world needed a new worldwide security framework.

Afghan officials say attack on ministry was repelled
In the eastern Logar province, Taliban suicide bombers attacked a police station, killing at least three policemen. General Daud Amin, the Kabul police chief, said seven attackers were killed and clean-up operations are under way.

"The understanding that a third world war could be the end of civilization should restrain us from taking extreme steps on the global arena that are highly risky for modern civilization", Putin said during his annual televised call-in show.

In interviews with two major European newspapers, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz lifted the veil on the plans of his country's EU presidency, which starts on 1 July. He called Washington's withdrawal from treaties on anti-ballistic missiles "an attempt to put an end to strategic parity", noting that Russian Federation is responding to United States actions with modern arms that will keep that parity intact.

According to Putin, the best jokes he's heard recently were claims about Donald Trump "pushing Europe into Putin's arms" and about Russia's alleged meddling in U.S. elections.

"How can you not draw the conclusions that Donald Trump, the president of the United States, is frightened of Vladimir Putin and his grip?"

"As I spoke in my address, it is still early to speak about this but soon we will tell about that", Russia's supreme commander-in-chief said.

The "traditional question" of Putin's eventual successor came up, to which the 65-year-old said he wouldn't be anointing the next president.

The president added the continued presence of Russian troops in the country would provide "invaluable experience" in the testing of new Russian weapons.

"So, we influenced the USA elections, and he gifted us Europe in return?" he asked.
