But the Kremlin leader added on Friday that his personal friendship with US President George W. Bush has helped to prevent the latest US initiative from turning into a new global disaster.

'Analogous actions by the Soviet Union when it deployed rockets on Cuba provoked the Cuban missile crisis,' Mr Putin added.

'For us, technologically, the situation is very similar. On our borders such threats to our country are being created.'
A decision by the Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev to send nuclear missiles to Communist ally Cuba put the world on the brink of nuclear war in 1962
