Russia against building world in interests of only one country — US, says Putin

"Today’s Russia has different potential," he said

MOSCOW, February 26. /TASS/. /TASS/. The world should change, though Moscow is against building the new world in the interests of only one country, the US, Russian President Vladimir Putin told the "Moscow. Kremlin. Putin" program on Rossiya-1 TV channel when answering questions by journalist Pavel Zarubin.

Moscow understands that since the Soviet Union’s dissolution the world situation has been changing, with new power centers appearing, he said. "Naturally, this cannot but influence the building, the priorities in building international relations. Of course. Once there is no Soviet Union. Regardless of the talk that Russia is the legal successor of the Soviet Union… in the legal sense it is true, though we are not speaking about legal sentences, but about the potential. Today’s Russia has different potential. We understand it and we agree that the world should change," the president explained.

Moscow is never against such changes, including in the UN, thinking about reforming it. "But what are we against? Against building the new world only in the interests of one country, the United States in this case," Putin added.
