President Vladimir Putin said on Saturday Russia would not accept a world order "headed by one undisputed leader who wants to remain such."
"Now as regards the point that a war is being waged against our country. Thank God, there is no war. But there absolutely definitely is an attempt to deter our development by various means, there's an attempt to disguise the current world order that has taken shape over the past few decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union, a world order that is headed by one undisputed leader who wants to remain such," Putin told a trade union congress in Sochi.
"A leader who assumes that everything is allowed to him but others only need what he allows them and what meets his own interests. Russia will never be satisfied with this kind of world order," Putin added.
Moscow can act as a guarantor of possible agreements between the conflicting parties in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
