MOSCOW, March 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that Russia would respond toughly to provocative statements, but will not seek for confrontation with partners in the East and in the West.
“Meanwhile, we will never seek confrontation with our partners in the East or in the West,” Putin noted. “On the contrary, we will do everything to build civilized good neighborly relations as this is usual in modern world,” he pledged.
“We will evidently face external counteraction,” Putin warned. However, Putin said with confidence, “We should decide ourselves whether we will protect consistently our national interests or will sacrifice them forever.”
