Vladimir Putin talks Third World War and Russia's first World Cup in four-hour long TV call-in show

Vladimir Putin has accused the United States of violating the nuclear balance and warned against a "Third World War" during an annual televised call-in show.  Responding to a worried viewer, Mr Putin called for new arms control negotiations and quoted Albert Einstein's aphorism that "World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones". But he also said Russia had developed weapons to overcome US missile defence after Washington left the Soviet-era anti-ballistic missile treaty in 2002. "The fear of mutually assured destruction has always restrained and forced military powers to respect each other," he said. "The exit of the United States from the missile defence treaty was an attempt...

Russia and Israel 'agree deal' to hold back Iranian militias so Assad can take border region
