Putin: Western countries’ attempts to maintain influence exacerbated situation in Middle East and Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that a group of Western countries, which used to dominate the world, stops at nothing to maintain its waning influence, and this destabilising policy actually provoked the aggravation in the Middle East and Ukraine, TASS reports


As Vladimir Putin noted, a well-known group of countries that are used to dominating the world, ‘practices outright blackmail and forceful pressure, replacing the system of international law with a certain order based on rules’. According to the Russian leader, such a destabilising policy provoked both the crisis situation around Ukraine and the tragic escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
