People in the former republics "interpret it in their own way, but all the same they believe that life in the Soviet Union was more secure, calmer, they felt surer of themselves", he told a forum in the Russian city of Sochi.

It is not what Russian Federation can make a decision about and a possible withdrawal is an issue between Damascus and Tehran to decide, Press TV reported him as saying in an address to the annual meeting of the Valdai Discussion Club in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said his country will only use its nuclear weapons in response to a nuclear attack on the country.

Vladimir Putin touted his country's military superiority on Thursday, citing developments in the area of hypersonic missiles as one example.

"When we see a coming strike on the territory of Russian Federation, we will retaliate".

"It would naturally mean a global catastrophe, but I want to emphasize that we can't be those who initiate it because we don't foresee a preventive strike", Putin said.

"We would be victims of an aggression and would get to heaven as martyrs", while the aggressors would "just die and not even have time to repent", he said.

Russia's Kinzhal hypersonic missile has already been deployed and another weapon - the intercontinental Avangard - is poised for deployment in the next few months.

Putin also said the countries calling for Iran to leave Syria should provide guarantees that they would not meddle in Syria's affairs.

Putin a year ago unveiled "invincible" new weapons that would render Western missile defence systems obsolete.

Putin said Trump aims at "some sort of stabilization and improvement of U.S".

In March, Mr Putin unveiled what he said was a new arsenal of advanced weaponry including nuclear devices immune to enemy interception.
