Putin: Washington's course to contain Russia and China is becoming acute
In his publication in the People's Daily entitled "Russia and China - a partnership looking to the future," Russian President Vladimir Putin announced dramatic changes in the global geopolitical situation. He noted that the "collective West" persistently adheres to archaic doctrines and its no longer valid dominance, which put entire states and peoples at risk.
According to Putin, the policy of double containment of Russia and China is becoming more and more aggressive in Washington. International security and cooperation are being dismantled, Russia is being declared a "immediate threat" and China a "strategic competitor".
