Putin warns NATO of World War III

Russian President, Vladimir Putin, says a direct conflict between Russia and NATO would mean that the planet is one step away from World War Three, according to Reuters.
The comments came as Putin claimed a landslide victory in Russia’s presidential election with 87.8 per cent of the votes.
The US, Germany, the UK, and other nations have said the election was neither free nor fair due to the imprisonment of political opponents and censorship.
During his post-election briefing, Putin said, “It is clear to everyone that this will be one step away from a full-scale World War Three.
