President Vladimir Putin said Russia will emerge stronger from his invasion of Ukraine as he lashed out at US and European “sanctions fever” in response to the war.

“I’m sure that we’ve lost nothing and won’t lose anything,” Putin said at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivistok on Wednesday, after he was asked about the conflict in Ukraine by the panel’s moderator following a speech in which he didn’t directly mention the war. “The main thing we’ll gain is strengthening our sovereignty.”
