Russian President Vladimir Putin has placed the country's nuclear deterrent forces on a "special" alert on Sunday, RT reported. 

"Western countries are not only taking unfriendly actions against our country in the economic area. I'm speaking about the illegitimate sanctions that everyone is well aware of.
