West taking steps toward escalation - Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that the West is taking steps toward the escalation of crises throughout the world, including issues such as Ukraine, Taiwan, global food trade and the energy situation.

For the West, any opposing view is propaganda and a threat to democracy, Putin added at an event hosted by the Valdai Discussion Club. Western politicians that are trying to ban Russian culture have high opinions of themselves but no one will remember their names in several years' time, the Russian leader predicted.

They are trying to substitute international law with a set of "rules" they invented themselves, according to Putin, who also noted, however, that he sees "no unity" in the West.
