MOSCOW, April 27 – RIA Novosti. Russia cannot allow the creation of anti-Russian territories around the country, Russia favorably treated the creation of an independent Ukrainian state, said Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking at the Council of Legislators.
“When Russia reacted favorably, in a friendly, comradely, fraternal way to the creation of an independent Ukrainian state, of course, then they proceeded from the fact that it would be a friendly state, that we would go further together, strengthening and developing each other, “creating the most competitive conditions for our development. Yes, in the new historical conditions, but, of course, no one expected the creation of “anti-Russia” in the historical Russian territories, and we cannot allow this to happen,” Putin said.
