Russia has no intention of attacking anyone, says president

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that the use of what he described as a "mythical" Russian military threat is "a profitable business."

The Russian leader made this statement on Oct. 27 at a session of the Valdai international discussion club in Sochi.

"Fabricated, mythical threats like the so-called Russian military threat are constantly repeated. This is, indeed, a profitable business to seek new budgets in countries and press allies to fit the interests of one superpower, expand NATO and bring the alliance’s infrastructure, combat units and military hardware to our borders," said Putin.

"The truth is, however, that Russia is not going to attack anyone, that’s ridiculous," he continued.
