The Russian president has accused Western counties of trying to revive NATO by creating a crisis in Ukraine.
Vladimir Putin says Moscow has no intention of launching a new arms race, but will analyze potential threats and adequately respond to all security challenges. He announced that his country will focus on new strategic nuclear weapons, aerospace defenses and high-precision conventional weapons in face of recent threats. His comments come a week after a NATO summit decided to create a rapid reaction spearhead force to protect Eastern Europe from what it called “Russian bullying”. The crisis in Ukraine has plunged relations between Moscow and the West to its lowest level since the Cold War.
