Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin was responding a question during his annual phone-in where he takes questions from the members of the public.
He warned World War 3 would be the end of civilization, and that should “restrain” world powers from taking “dangerous steps”.
Relations between Russia and the West have plunged to Cold War lows amid tensions over Syria, Crimea, NATO build-ups and Sergei Skripal.
Putin said pressure on Russia from the West will end when they realize they are “counter productive”.
And he said fears of mutually assured destruction from nuclear is forcing “powers to respect each other”.
