As the eloquent statesman that he is, Vladimir Putin articulated that cooler heads must triumph, and diplomacy must be allowed to work effectively in these troubling times.
According to RT, which reported from the ceremony to welcome new ambassadors to Russia, Putin said:
“The state of world affairs invokes nothing but concerns, the situation in the world is becoming more chaotic.”
“Nevertheless, we still hope that common sense will eventually prevail and international relations will enter a constructive course, the entire world system will become more stable and predictable.”
