On the eve of the visit, which saw the Russian president protected by 800 soldiers, 800 policemen and 17 military vehicles, Putin had to face much tougher questions in an interview with the Austrian television journalist Armin Wolf, an encounter which turned out to be the toughest grilling the Russian president has faced for some years. Putin mentioned seeing a German news headline declaring, "Donald Trump pushes Europe into Putin's arms".

Putin's visit also marks the 50th anniversary of the initiation of Russian gas deliveries to the alpine nation. "But of course I think that we should raise a new, young generation of leaders, responsible people who will be able to take on the responsibility of Russian Federation".

He emphasized that his meeting with Mr. Trump would be important as an opportunity to discuss arms control and preventing a new arms race.

After meeting Putin in Vienna, Van der Bellen said some USA politicians claim that the European Union is too dependent on Russian gas, but overlook the fact that American liquefied gas is much more expensive.

Putin said in an interview with the China Media Group that current sanctions against Russian Federation "neither surprise nor scare us".

Putin also pushed back on the idea that Russian businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin, who has been indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller and bankrolled a Russian troll farm, could somehow have swayed us elections.

Prigozhin is known as "Putin's chef" for having hosted the strongman's meetings with key foreign officials at his restaurants.

"[Albert] Einstein said the fourth world war will be fought with sticks and stones", Putin said. Prigozhin, who has been called "Putin's chef" because he runs a catering business, has received billions of dollars worth of Russian state contracts, including with the Russian military.

Putin had another "I told you so" message for Russian businessmen, saying he had previously warned them about the risks of keeping their assets overseas, and that they were now being persecuted by countries such as Britain.
