MOSCOW, December 8. /TASS/. The world is a state of transformation and Russia should do its best not to lag behind, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a congress of the United Russia party on Saturday.
"The world on the whole is in a state of transformation. It is a very powerful and dynamically evolving transformation. Given we fail to find a way around in due time, given we fail to grasp in due time what and how we need to act, we might always end up in lagging behind," the Russian president said.
"It is a very dramatic situation in the history of our country. This dramatic situation is unfolding across the world as well as in our fate," he noted.
The United Russia party should employ its legislative and administrative potential and its human resources to unite and consolidate the citizens and to find solutions to nationwide problems, Putin concluded.
