Russia Will Find a Way to Protect Its Interests If Other Countries Refuse Dialogue, Putin Says

The president's remarks come amid a new round of tensions between Russia and the West, including fresh sanctions against Moscow by Washington, claims about cyberattacks and election meddling, and mutual recriminations over the escalating civil conflict in Ukraine.

Moscow will find "asymmetrical" ways to defend its national interests if other nations refuse dialogue, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said.

"The practice of organizing coups and attempts to organize assassinations of heads of state is just too much. All boundaries have been crossed," Putin said, speaking during his annual address to lawmakers from both houses of Russia's parliament on Wednesday, and referring to the recent discovery of a plot to assassinate Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko and members of his family and to carry out a coup d'etat in Belarus.
