About the global economy

According to RIA Novosti, Putin said at the forum on the same day that the global economy continues to change, mainly due to the destruction of the trade and financial systems by some Western countries. Against this backdrop, there are more and more countries in various regions that wish to cooperate sincerely and pragmatically, and these countries do not succumb to any external pressure, but are guided by their own interests.

Putin also said that at present, a new model of integration is emerging, which is different from the West, the former is characterized by openness, and its purpose is to benefit all mankind and the developing multipolar world.

About the Russian-Ukrainian conflict

According to RIA Novosti, Putin said at the forum on the same day that the practice of other countries providing cluster munitions to Ukraine "has not changed anything" on the battlefield. The Ukrainian army has lost 71,000 people, 543 tanks and 18,000 armored vehicles during the counteroffensive.

He also said that if the Americans believe that Ukraine is ready to negotiate, they will first ask Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to revoke the order prohibiting negotiations with the Russian side.

He said that relevant data show that about 160 cultural activists who disagree with the position of the Russian leadership on the topic of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict have left Russia.

On the relations between the United States and the West and Russia, Sino-Russian relations

According to TASS, Putin also said that "there is a trend in which our entrepreneurs used to create their own platforms abroad, and later they ran into the problem of confiscation of legally earned funds." This is simply the act of crossing all boundaries. But those who confiscate funds don't even understand the negative impact on themselves, and until now, they haven't paid attention to it."

According to RIA Novosti, Putin issued an appeal at the forum to Russian entrepreneurs who are under pressure in the West. He said it is more reliable to invest in Russia. "We have a lot of entrepreneurs who encounter a certain amount of pressure from individual partners, I said a word to our entrepreneurs before, and today I want to say it again: there is no doubt that it is better to invest in Russia, it is more reliable to do so." He also said that these investments will involve large-scale infrastructure projects and urban tourism development projects. "Don't fall twice in the same place." He said.

Putin also said that the diplomatic work carried out by one country cannot contradict the interests of other countries, but the West values interests only, so they have no friends.

Referring to the statement that former US President Trump maintains a special relationship with the Russian side, Putin said that those who made these claims were "talking nonsense." "He (Trump) is accused of having a special relationship with Russia, which is nonsense. In fact, he imposed more sanctions on Russia during his presidency. Putin said that it is difficult to say who will be elected president of the United States in the future, but the US policy towards Russia may not change significantly, because the current US administration has made American society hold anti-Russian concepts.

Speaking about Russian-Chinese relations, Putin said at the forum that Russian-Chinese cooperation has reached an unprecedented level in recent years, which applies to describing all areas of cooperation between the two sides, according to the Russian Satellite News Agency. He also said that Russia will not forge military alliances and that friendship with China is not to oppose one side or the other.

Speaking of the West's position on China, Putin said that seeing China's rapid development, the West will try to obstruct China's development, but this attempt will not succeed.

About the development of the Far East

According to RIA Novosti, Putin said that the Russian Far East plays a very important role for Russia and its future, for Russia to maintain its position in a multipolar world. "I would like to recall a sentence from the State of the Union address 10 years ago: Achieving advanced development in the Far East is our priority in the 21st century, and it is also the common responsibility and work to be carried out by the Russian federal government and local governments, state-owned enterprises and private enterprises." He said: Developing the Russian Far East is Russia's strategic priority in the 21st century.

Regarding Russia's economic, transport and infrastructure programs in the Far East, Putin said that the most important goals are to improve the quality of life of residents, create comfortable and modern conditions for residents to study, work, and play, and achieve "sustainable growth" of the population of the Far East.

Speaking about infrastructure construction, Putin said that Russia will build highways through Siberia and the Far East and directly to the Pacific region.
