“Not many [countries] want such an independent, effective player that knows his own worth and is capable of stating them,” the Russian leader says Russia will never allow the loss of its own sovereignty, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.
“If we agreed and said yes [to other countries], we would be good for everyone. However, we would gradually lose our significance, and the next step after losing the significance, I think, would be the irreparable loss of our sovereignty and loss of future prospects,” Putin said adding that “we will never allow that.”
“Not many [countries] want such an independent, effective player that knows his own worth and is capable of stating them. They will try to bring him down a little, put him in his place,” he noted.
“We do not ask anyone for anything, apart from what belongs to us. And we are ready to look for compromise,” he stressed. “We understand that the world does not consist of only our interests, and others have their own interests,” he added.Putin said all partners should take into account each other’s interests in order to reach harmony in the world.
