The remarks came after North Korea fired a missile over Japan last week, adding to persistent tension over the Korean Peninsula.
In his published comments, Putinsaid the situation was "balancing on the brink of a large-scale conflict".
In an article sent to the media, President Putin said: "Russia believes that the policy of putting pressure on Pyongyang to stop its nuclear missile programme is misguided and futile".
"Provocations, pressure, and bellicose and offensive rhetoric is the road to nowhere", Putin said.
Putin said the crisis can only be solved through "direct dialogue between all concerned parties, without preconditions".
Following Tuesday's missile launch, Pyongyang said it would stage future military operations directed at the American territory of Guam, which has always been a focal point of North Korea's disdain with the U.S. and is often mentioned as a target. This "roadmap ... is created to promote the gradual easing of tensions and the creation of a mechanism for lasting peace and security", Putin wrote, per TASS.
