Putin says Russia won't be intimidated over Crimea

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia will not be intimidated over its actions in Ukraine and Crimea, President Vladimir Putin said on Saturday as his foreign ministry warned that it was preparing to retaliate against fresh Western sanctions.

Sanctions coupled with tumbling global oil prices have rattled Russia's economy, with the rouble losing over 40 percent of its value year-to-date and a recession widely expected to take hold next year #Arabic #Argentina #Brazil #Business #France #India #Latin America #Mexico #Technology #Ukraine
