Putin agrees that US is ready to resist Russia "to the last Ukrainian"

The Russian leader noted that "the world today is more complex than it was during the Cold War"

VOSTOCHNY COSMODROME, April 12. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin agrees with the opinion Washington is determined to resist Moscow "to the last Ukrainian".

"A great deal is being said about the United States’ intention to fight against Russia ‘to the last Ukrainian’ - they say it there and they say it here. This is so in reality," Putin told a news conference following talks with his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko at the Vostochny cosmodrome in the Amur Region.

The Russian leader said that "the world today is more complex than it was during the Cold War."

"In this complex world one country will fail to retain its total domination," Putin said. "Today we are witnesses to the collapse of the unipolar world system that took shape following the demise of the Soviet Union."

On February 24, Putin launched a special military operation in Ukraine following a request for help from the leaders of the Donbass republics. He stressed that Moscow had no plans for an occupation of Ukrainian territories. After that the United States, the European Union, Britain and a number of other states imposed sanctions on Russian individuals and legal entities.
