From Gabriela Baczynska, Reuters, Moscow, Nov 18, 2014:

“They do not want to humiliate us, they want to subdue us, solve their problems at our expense,”…and…”No one in history ever managed to achieve this with Russia, and no one ever will”.

Putin’s tough talk reflected the strain in ties between Moscow and Washington, who are at loggerheads over the crisis in Ukraine, where the West has accused Russia of promoting and arming a separatist rebellion.

During the meeting, Putin repeatedly urged Russian firms, including in the agricultural and defense sectors, to boost their sales on domestic markets following tit-for-tat sanctions with West triggered by the row over Ukraine. <More>
