Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev says that pressures between the West and Russia have caused a ‘new cold war’.

Speaking at a marquee security conference held in Germany yesterday he said with the Syrian conflict cooperation between Russia and the West is important.

He said, "On an almost daily basis, we are being described the worst threat - be it to Nato as a whole, or to Europe, America or other countries."

And "Sometimes I wonder if this is 2016 or 1962,” he added.

Cold War is a period when former Soviet Union and Western Countries confronted ideologically. The cold war started after the end of World War II and ended when Soviet-led camps collapsed in 1989.
