Vladimir Putin announces that Russia won’t be competing in an arms race with the west

According to Russian President Putin, Russia won’t be engaging in an arms race with the west, and the military spending will be decreased as Russia “does not seek a role as the world gendarme.” Instead, they’ll stick to “smart decisions” in order to strengthen their defensive capabilities.

“Intelligence, brains, discipline and organization must be the cornerstones of the (Russian) military doctrine,” Putin said. He added that the last thing his country needs is an arms race which would “drain the economy,” which Moscow doesn’t want “in any scenario.”
