Administration of the President of Russia
The Russian leader made a statement at a plenary session of the Valdai International Discussion Club. The event takes place in Sochi.
The current state of the world is due to the failure of the Cold War, the Russian leader stressed. In the old days, a lost confrontation on one side meant a victory for the other. Now the war drags on continuously, despite the leadership of one of the opponents. It only changes its shape, Putin explained.
Earlier, the head of state greeted the meeting participants with a bow. The nod from the Russian leader caught on video.
