Speaking at an economic forum in Vladivostok in Russia’s far east, the president said Russia ‘will not supply anything at all if it contradicts our interests … We will not supply gas, oil, coal, heating oil – we will not supply anything’.

Putin also claims the developing world has been ‘cheated’ by a landmark grain deal designed to alleviate a food crisis.
