Putin said that Russia did not want to impair relations with anybody. “On the contrary, we are trying to deepen our relations but if we are struck on one cheek we are not going to offer the other cheek,” the president said.
“It’s necessary to respect the Russian society, our traditions, our culture and the laws of the Russian Federation,” Putin emphasized.
