Putin: Russia Does Not Pose a Threat to Anyone

President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday that Russia would safeguard its own security and that of its allies but posed a threat to no one.

"We pose no threat to anyone and do not intend to get involved in any geopolitical games or intrigues, let alone conflicts, no matter who tries to draw us into them or how they do so," Putin told a meeting with military chiefs in his state residence in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.

"At the same time, it is indispensable to securely safeguard the sovereignty and integrity of Russia and the security of our allies."

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
