Period of West-dominated world is ending: Putin



The historical period of boundless Western domination in world affairs is coming to an end and the unipolar world is becoming the past, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday.

The West aims to maintain hegemony on global economy and politics with so-called "rules" they created, Putin said at the plenary session of the 19th meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club in the Moscow region.

However, as soon as non-Western states, including Asian countries, began to benefit from globalization, the West immediately changed or fully abolished many of those rules, he stressed.

The West is unable to rule humanity single-handedly despite their attempts to do so and "the majority of nations no longer want to put up with this," Putin said.
