Putin warns Ukraine against military action in east during World Cup

Putin's visit also marks the 50th anniversary of the initiation of Russian gas deliveries to the alpine nation.

After pressing Putin on Ukraine, Syria, Russian meddling in Europe and why he had never uttered the name of Russia's most prominent opposition figure, Alexei Navalny, who is now in jail, Wolf used his final question to ask why there were so many Kremlin-approved photos of a half-naked Putin. It's no coincidence that Austria, unlike virtually all the other European Union member states, decided not to expel Russian diplomats after the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal in Britain.

The troops "will stay there for as long as it is to Russia's advantage, and to fulfill our worldwide responsibilities", Putin said during his annual televised call-in show on Thursday.

He will attend a business conference with envoys from both countries.

Putin's interview with Austrian news presenter Armin Wolf grew heated when Wolf asked about allegations that Putin had meddled in the domestic politics of other countries.

Putin said that Russian Federation has been warning Europe about US dominance for years, and "now, with the prospect of trade wars, Europe has begun to listen". "They see that Russian Federation has become a competitor to them. we propose that this is a very mistaken policy".

"Who is going to help them overseas? Conditions are created to make their work impossible".

He also appeared in the United Kingdom crime drama Inspector George Gently in 2009. "Alan was only ever a phone call away". No foul play is suspected in the actor's death. "May he rest in peace", Walsh added .

"They are temporary but we will keep them there while it is necessary and is required by our economic interests", he said. Moreover, later news broke that Trump had not only mentioned the possibility of a meeting but also invited Putin to Washington. "We have started on the trajectory towards robust economic growth in Russian Federation". Yulia Skripal has said since the incident she wants to return to Russian Federation at some point in the future.

One asked why opposition leader Alexei Navalny had not been allowed to register as a candidate in the presidential election, another why there was money for the military but not ordinary people, and another asked whether Russian Federation was a banana republic.

The Russian central bank forecasts economic growth at between 1.5 and 2 per cent this year.

With opinion polls showing rising discontent with his government, Putin added a new twist to the show's format this year, summoning ministers and regional governors via video link to respond directly to viewers' concerns. The annual event is carefully stage-managed, although a few uncomfortable questions popped up on screens showing submissions in real time. He referred some questions to regional governors, government ministers and state company heads who were shown on giant TV monitors sitting at their desks across Russian Federation, waiting to be quizzed.

The president, who received around 2 million questions by telephone, text, email and social media, addressed Russians during the three-hour televised event - discussing everything from the meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election to a potential third world war.

"Life is getting worse and worse", read another.
