Putin warns Ukraine against military action in east during World Cup

Putin also denied the accusations against Yevgeny V. Prigozhin, one of the Russians indicted by Mueller who has been accused of orchestrating the so-called "troll farm" that was used to influence American politics in 2016.

Asked about his interactions with U.S. President Donald Trump, Putin said political infighting in Washington was hampering their contacts.

The paper added that Kurz is set to discuss the issue with the U.S. ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, in Berlin next week.

Prigozhin has been dubbed "Putin's chef" by Russian media because his restaurants and catering businesses have hosted the Kremlin leader's dinners with foreign dignitaries. Kennedy and Khrushchev met at a historic summit in Vienna in 1961, shortly after the US-backed invasion of Cuba's Bay of Pigs and amid tensions between the superpowers over Berlin.

And with the World Cup set to begin next week in Russia, Putin said the event's 12 stadiums must be financially self-sustaining after the tournament, following calls from some officials for government subsidies.

President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin talk on the phone "regularly" and bump into each other at global events, but are still waiting for a one-on-one meeting, says Putin in an interview with Austrian TV this week.

Responding to a anxious viewer during a televised phone-in, Putin called for new arms control negotiations and quoted Albert Einstein's aphorism that "World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones".

He also blasted USA sanctions on Russian Federation, saying the widening use of the restrictions is undermining confidence the dollar as a reserve currency.

"No matter how unpleasant this may sound what I will say but this is true: the fear of mutual destruction has always restrained the participants in the global communication and the leading military powers from sharp movements and forced them to respect each other". In response to one, Putin reassured viewers that "World War III" isn't near. "U.S. withdrawal from treaties on anti-ballistic missiles is an attempt to put an end to strategic parity, but we will respond to this".

Russian President Vladimir Putin told an Austrian journalist that he and Donald Trump speak on the phone regularly in an interview Tuesday leading up to his visit to Vienna.

Cristiano Ronaldo's wish to leave Real Madrid is 'irreversible'
As rumours of an exit continue, Cristiano Ronaldo has been warned by compatriot Luis Figo to consider how much Real Madrid have given him.

Nuclear weapons, including an underwater drone and a hypersonic glider warhead, prompted fears of a new arms race when the Russian leader announced them in March.

Van der Bellen said some U.S. politicians claim the European Union is too dependent on Russian gas, but overlook the fact that American liquefied gas is much more expensive.

Putin didn't elaborate under what circumstances Russian Federation could leave or on Moscow's broader strategy for Syria. With us, it is Mr. Prigozhin's private affair. He also cited Soviet successes in the space race while pledging to launch 600 new satellites and develop a super-heavy rocket.

Why did he warn Ukraine not to try anything during the World Cup?

Members of the public submitted around two million questions, state TV reported, some of them flashed up on a giant screen close to Putin.
