“Our partners – whatever condition their countries are in and whatever foreign policy concept they adhere to – should understand that it’s better not to mess with us,” Putin said. “Thank God, I believe it doesn’t occur to anyone to unleash a large-scale conflict with Russia.”
He said that Russia is going to boost its military forces and nuclear deterrence potential.
“Russia is one of the most powerful nuclear states. It’s not words, it is the reality,” he said. “We are strengthening our nuclear deterrence forces, we are strengthening our armed forces…We are beefing up our potential and will continue doing so.”This is being done “not to threaten anyone, “but to feel secure,” he added.
"Russia is not going to get involved in large-scale conflicts"Russia will not get engaged in any large conflicts, but will defend itself in case of aggression, Putin warned.
“Russia is far from getting involved any large-scale conflicts. We don’t want that and we are not going to do it. And, naturally, we should always be ready to repel any aggression against Russia,” Putin said.Reference - RT
