Russian economy is on way to recovery, Putin says

Vladimir Putin Russia Crimea Ukraine War Troops Invasion

Putin, who praised Trump throughout the election and enthusiastically supported him upon his presidential victory, did not explicitly mention the president-elect but did say that Russian Federation is "ready for cooperation with the new USA administration" and is "counting on" the join Russian Federation in continuing the fight against terrorism. Putin also declared that the world order should be marked by cooperation between countries and thus Russian Federation would seek a relationship of mutual respect with the new USA administration.

"Cooperation and collaboration with the United States in addressing global and regional issues is in the interest of the entire world", he said.

Putin spoke at length about matters of domestic and foreign policy during an annual address to Russia's federal assembly on Thursday. "I am counting on joining forces with the United States in the fight with the real, not made-up, threat of worldwide terrorism", Putin said during his speech Thursday.

It was mainly devoted to domestic issues but Vladimir Putin also talked about Russia's role in global politics and provided an insight into his country's geopolitical strategy.

Tensions between the US and Russian Federation have escalated in recent years as Putin has become increasingly involved in affairs in Ukraine and in Syria. As a part of his speech, Mr. Putin expressed his hope that "a chance will appear to smooth relations" with the new American administration. "We need friends", he told Russia's political elite gathered in one of the Kremlin's grandest halls.

Russian Federation has conducted an air campaign in support of Syrian President Bashar Assad, helping his forces make significant gains, most recently in Aleppo, Syria's largest city before the war.

He said: "We have delivered macroeconomic stability, preserved our financial reserves".

Current U.S. President Barack Obama in 2015 issued a new national-security strategy portraying Russian Federation as a regional bully and a threat to global stability, a drastic shift from the collaborative tone of the previous document released amid his "reset" policy with Moscow in 2010.

Putin said the worldwide sanctions imposed after Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 had helped its internal markets grow. In his address, Putin wasted no time in emphasizing that friendly relations between the United States and Russian Federation are essential for global stability. Previous year he devoted much of his speech to denouncing Turkey for shooting down a Russian warplane.

The Russian leader said the Kremlin was ready to work with a new administration, but offered few new specifics on the way forward. Putin said on Thursday that Moscow is willing to work with the United States on counterterrorism, though attempts by the Obama administration to cooperate on the Syrian conflict have backfired.

"We call for security and that the chance for development should be given not only to the elite, but to all countries and peoples, that worldwide law and global diversity should be respected". Trump, on the other hand, campaigned on renewed relations with Putin, suggesting that the two would get along.
