Russia cannot leave people residing in southeastern Ukraine to the nationalists, and there is nothing excessive about this position, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said.

"Everyone perfectly understands everything but they think they need to pressure Russia more so that it yields something somewhere. By the way, this is not our business to yield something or to insist on something.
