Putin warns West of “rapid and harsh” response from Russia if it crosses “red lines” – BBC News

President Putin has warned countries in the West not to cross what he called a “red line” with Russia, stating that it would trigger an “asymmetrical, rapid and harsh” response.

Mr Putin’s comments during his state of the nation address came at a time of increased tensions with the West and as supporters of the jailed opposition figure Alexei Navalny staged more protests against Mr Putin’s rule.
