Putin: We shouldn't act like lunatics in global politics

Russia shouldn't "act like lunatics" when defending its positions in international relations, President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday. Instead, Russia should adopt an "iron fist in a velvet glove approach," the president noted.

Commenting on negative sentiment towards Russia in the United States Putin told Rossiya-1: "What is going on there, in the world’s biggest economy, in the biggest nuclear and military power, is regrettable because it tells on the entire system of international relations and has adverse impacts on the Russian-US relations."

Earlier in the day, the Kremlin described US-Russia ties as "at virtually the lowest point" in history.
