    Russia’s relations with several western countries are much to be desired, however the new “Cold War” is impossible, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — He also said that our planet got through two world wars and this tragedy should not be repeated in future.

    “If to speak about the relations of our country with a range of western states, then they are really far from being ideal… some people even say about the second ‘Cold War’… I think that this scenario is impossible in the 21 century,” Medvedev told Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper in an interview.

    Russia’s relations with the West deteriorated over the escalation of the Ukrainian crisis in 2014.

    The European Union, the United States and their allies imposed a series of restrictive measures against Russia, accusing it of interfering in the conflict between government and militia in southeastern Ukraine. Moscow has repeatedly denied the accusations.
