Putin Blames the West for Ukraine Tensions During News Conference

Leader says Russia isn’t seeking conflict with neighboring nation, warns against NATO expansion

Politik, an independent political consultancy. “He doesn’t want Russia to look like a monster,” she said. “He wants Russia to be understood and he’s seeking for this understanding, some empathy. It’s important for him to sustain the image of Russia as a peaceful country that is ready for dialogue.”
