Putin says others should respect Russians' rights

SEVASTOPOL Crimea (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking in the Crimea region Russia annexed from Ukraine, said on Friday Russians' rights, including the right to self-determination, should be treated with respect.

"We treat all countries, all peoples, with respect. We respect their lawful rights and interests. But we ask that everybody should treat our lawful interests, including restoring historical justice and the right to self-determination, in the same way," he told a crowd at a concert during his first visit to Crimea since its annexation in March.
