Putin thanks allies for 'not bending to hegemon'

Russian President Vladimir Putin thanked his allies on Monday for refusing "to bend to the hegemon" and continuing to choose a sovereign independent path.

As such they "contribute to the defense of the multipolar world," Putin underscored at the Army-2022 forum. The head of Russia further stated that Moscow "stands for the widest comprehensive development of military-technical cooperation. Today, in the conditions of a steadily emerging multipolar world, this is especially important."

Putin noted that such broad military-technical cooperation will ensure "reliable security and stability of our countries and the world as a whole," while inviting the country's allies to "participate in joint command and staff, as well as other types of [military] exercises."
