Russian President Vladimir Putin during the plenary session of the Valdai club criticized Europe for “dependence on the USA.”
“You can’t talk with a partner who calls to the Washington Regional Committee on each issue,” said Putin.
Speaking about Russia’s attitude towards China, the Russian President said that Moscow perceives Beijing as a “close friend” and “with great respect for its culture and traditions.”
The Russian president also responded positively about India: India has made a colossal path of development from the colony, followed by a huge future. India and I have special, allied relations, and there were no questions between us. India Prime Minister Narendra Modi constantly pursues an independent policy in the interests of his people. “
