Russia reserves 'right to defend its security' amid NATO tensions: Putin






Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking publicly for the first time since his high-profile talks with US leader Joe Biden, said Wednesday that Moscow reserves the right to "defend its security" but refused to say if he planned to invade Ukraine.

Putin hailed his talks with Biden as "constructive.
