Key quotes from Russian leader Vladimir Putin's annual briefing

President Vladimir Putin has used his annual news conference to launch an new attack on Turkey over the downing of a Russian combat jet last month.

He was giving his annual news conference, a marathon event which at three hours and seven minutes, was only three minutes shorter than last year's.

"The Turks", he said, had "decided to lick the Americans in a certain place".

He also discussed Syria, next year's US presidential election as well as Russian doping and the Fifa corruption scandals in the marathon Q&A session which has become one of the highlights of Russia's political calendar.
