Description

Russian President Vladimir Putin remains unshakable in the face of a recent currency crisis, conflict in Ukraine and strong sanctions by the West. According to Itar-TASS, the Russian leader said Saturday no one has, nor will, succeed in intimidating or isolating Russia. Speaking at a gala marking the Day of Security Service Officers, Putin rallied his people, saying they must be ready to go through certain difficulties and to give an adequate answer to any threats to the sovereignty, stability and unity of their society. This comes just days after Putin′s annual end-of-year news conference on Thursday, in which he expressed confidence in the security of his position, even as Russia is grappling with the collapse of its currency.
