Berlusconi warns of 'Cold War against Russia'

Ex-premier sees relations with US strained over Ukraine

(ANSA) - Rome, May 6 - Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi on Tuesday said there was a possibility of a new Cold War in light of strained relations between the United States and Russia over the deepening crisis in Ukraine.
    "I see the risk of resuming a Cold War against Russia," the three-time premier told Italy's Radio Anch'io. The media magnate has made no secret of his friendship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who many accuse of backing the pro-Russian separatist uprising in eastern Ukraine.
