Putin on relations with the West:
- Sometimes I wonder, maybe the bear should just sit quietly, munch on berries and honey rather than chasing after piglets, maybe then, they would leave it alone? But no, they wouldn’t, because they will always try to chain it up. And as soon as they chain it up, they will pull out its teeth and claws.
Once they’ve taken out his claws and his teeth, then the bear is no longer necessary. He’ll become a stuffed animal.
