A warning from the Russian President to the rest of the world: Stay out of our affairs. In his annual State of the Nation address, Vladimir Putin has made it clear that Moscow will respond in a “swift and harsh” way to any foreign “provocations”.

It comes as tensions with the West are rising over Russia’s military build-up along the Ukrainian border. The US and European Union have also vowed to hold Putin responsible if his main political rival, Alexei Navalny, dies in prison. Navalny is in his fourth week of a hunger strike.
