Russia will fight for its nat'l interest using 'all means' - Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin noted on Wednesday the country will defend its national interest using "all means" at its disposal if its goals cannot be reached peacefully.

According to the president, the West views Russia as a "second-class country that simply has no right to exist at all. "This is what we are dealing with today. For a long time, throughout our history, we have been dealing with this, but today it is most clearly manifested," he added.

Speaking at a meeting with members of the Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights (HRC), Putin also addressed the country's mobilization process, noting that 150,000 soldiers are now in the special military operation zone, of which 77,000 are with their combat units, underscoring that additional mobilization of forces "makes no sense" now.
