At the same time, the report notes that USA leaders and their European allies are not yet prepared for the ways in which Russian President Vladimir Putin is poised to wage war in Ukraine and the Baltic. Both Putin and Trump met during various worldwide summits past year and Putin said that "I have no disappointment at all", When asked about meeting President Trump. "If we achieve this. then, without a doubt, Russian Federation will retain its status a great power, including the defense capability of the state", Putin said in the documentary film "World Order 2018" by journalist Vladimir Solovyev.

"It's quite hard to interact with such a system, because it's unpredictable", Mr Putin said.

"I made some exaggerations", the action-loving Russian leader said with a grin.

The former KGB agent promised he hadn't tried to "turn" Melania Trump, "no, I stopped doing that a long time ago".

During his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump said he would press for better ties with Russian Federation as a way to solve numerous world's deep-standing conflicts.

Trump and Putin shake hands during a meeting on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, on July 7.

When asked about his countries hopes for better relations with the United States and the ongoing investigations into the allegation that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the presidential election, Putin said that the tensions in relations have been caused by the Western efforts to weaken and contain Russian Federation.

"We treat it with great respect", Putin described his response to this very Jewish characteristic.

After a pro-West government was installed in Kyiv, Moscow responded by seizing control of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula in March 2014 and fomenting separatism across much of the country - one of the causes of a war that has killed more than 10,300 people in eastern Ukraine since April 2014 and displaced more than 1.6 million Ukrainians.

"We shouldn't forget this not because we'd like to accuse someone, but because this should never take place again", Putin said.

He said Western sanctions for Moscow's annexation of Crimea and the insurgency in eastern Ukraine were part of "illegitimate and unfair" efforts to contain Russian Federation, but added that "we will win in the long run".

"Those who serve us with poison will eventually swallow it and poison themselves", he added.

Any British government, "even one led by Jeremy Corbyn, would have to throw it at Russian Federation".

Moscow has denied any involvement.

Responding to a question about Russia's growing global leverage, Mr Putin responded: "If we play strongly with weak cards, it means the others are just poor players, they aren't as strong as it seemed, they must be lacking something".

"The decision to use nuclear weapons can only be made if our early warning system not only detects a missile launch but clearly forecasts its flight path and the time when warheads reach the Russian territory", he said. If there is this decision to destroy Russian Federation then we have a legal right to respond'.

"Yes, it will mean a global catastrophe for mankind, for the entire world".

With a $4 trillion GDP in terms of Purchasing Power Parity (PPP), Russia has become the sixth-largest economy in the world after China, the United States, India, Japan and Germany.
