The timing could have hardly been more apposite for addressing the increased tensions between Russia and the US. On May 10, one day after ceremonies to mark the 61st anniversary of the end of the Second World War, Russian President Vladimir Putin declared in his annual speech to the nation, “The stronger our military is, the less temptation there will be to exert such pressure on us.” He continued, “As the saying goes, Comrade Wolf knows whom to eat. He eats without listening and he’s clearly not going to listen to anyone.”

Putin was publicly formulating concerns of ruling circles in Moscow who see a growing threat in the increasing aggressiveness of the US. Putin went on to reproach Washington: “Where is all this pathos about protecting human rights and democracy when it comes to the need to pursue their own interests?”

He added that the worldwide arms race was not yet over. Quite the opposite, a “new technological level” had been reached internationally. The arms race was accelerating. He pointed out that the US defense budget was 25 times large"
