Putin: A Conservative You Can Trust

MOSCOW (Reuters) – President Vladimir Putin warned the West on Thursday not to underestimate Russia’s military might but cast his country as a force for moral good and a bastion of traditional values.

In his annual state-of-the-nation speech, Putin portrayed Russia as a country of growing importance and as a moral counterweight to the United States, despite the loss of its Cold War status as a superpower.

He used the occasion to reinforce his image as a champion of conservative values, intended to appeal to his traditional supporters in working-class areas outside big cities following protests against his rule led by young urban professionals.
