Putin signs Russian 'counter-sanctions' into law

Putin signs law on countermeasures against US & its allies

Russian President Vladimir Putin called for the development of a new European security system Thursday in response to what he says is a USA effort to undermine strategic parity and warned that a third world war could end civilization.

Russia's President Vladimir Putin gestures during a joint news conference with Austria's President Alexander Van der Bellen in Vienna, Austria June 5, 2018.

Regarding recent global negotiations with North Korea, Putin said he supported China's efforts to ease regional tensions and create a "roadmap" for the North's denuclearisation.

"In a recent telephone conversation, Donald said he was anxious about the possibility of a new arms race".

Replying to a question about global pressure against Moscow, Putin explained that these accusations and sanctions are aimed at containing Russia's development. "What, did they 'annex Crimea, ' as many of our partners say?" Nobody wanted to listen, and nobody did anything to stop this from developing.

The total number of calls to the live broadcast nationwide phone-in with Vladimir Putin was nearly 1.75 million as of 08:00 Moscow time on June 7, TASS reported citing the organization team.

Russian state TV reported the public submitted about 2 million questions during the annual phone-in, which Putin has used since 2001 to position himself as a domestic problem solver and a strong defender of Russia's interests on the global stage.

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 United States elections.

Putin told ORF that the Russian government has no connection to Prigozhin's activities.

The videoconferencing element was a new addition to the yearly call-in show.

President Vladimir Putin says Russian Federation has no plans to pull its military out of Syria, but isn't building permanent facilities there.

Lacking a Russian passport, Barakat said she can not bring into the country her husband and three children, who are still living in Syria and whom she has not seen in two years.

He warned neighboring Ukraine that if it tried to make any military moves against pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine while Russia hosts the impending soccer World Cup, it would suffer.

Trump says Kim summit more than 'photo-op'
Thursday's "Outnumbered" panel collectively cringed over Rudy Giuliani's comments about North Korean leader Kim Jong Un . Mr Kim has already had two meetings with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. "I've told you that many times before".


Putin said he had advised business people to keep their assets inside Russia and said that pressure on Russian businessmen was undermining trust in Western countries.

Putin had been asked about the visa problems being experienced by billionaire Roman Abramovich in Britain.

There were no questions about Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential race, but Putin brought up the subject.

"They will be sitting by the television with bated breath... with a phone in one hand and a sedative in their pocket", the Komsomolskaya Pravda tabloid joked.

'In a recent telephone conversation, Donald said he was anxious about the possibility of a new arms race.

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