Five key points from Russian president Vladimir Putin’s four-hour news conference

Vladimir Putin said Russia’s Olympic doping ban was unjustified and warned that global warming could be “a disaster” for its northern territories as he answered questions at his annual televised news conference in Moscow.

The Russian president also dismissed the impeachment process against Donald Trump as “far-fetched” and said he was “very happy” at ever-closer ties with Belarus. He spoke on a variety of issues during his traditional end-of-year appearance. Some 2,000 journalists were registered to attend, but few were lucky enough to be called to ask a question.
