Vladimir Putin blames US of terrorism in Middle East
�I never asserted I look at the US as a threat to the national security�-Putin
The Russian president tells in a gathering of politicians with the Valdai International Discussion Club
at the end of 2014 that Washington is playing a �double game� and acting in self-interest.
Vladimir Putin, casually accused Washington of backing terrorism in the centre East and double-
crossing the countries it claims as allies.
The gathering inside the Valdai Club occurred just before ISIS� attack on Paris which injured over
100 people and killed nearly 130 Parisians on November 13, 2015. Over a gang of international
analysts and politicians, Putin claimed as part of his speech that this US has experimented on using
terrorist groups as �a battering ram to overthrow regimes they don�t like�.
�It�s always tough to play a double game - to declare a battle against terrorists but concurrently
make use of a lot of them to move the pieces on the Middle Eastern chessboard absolutely need
favour. There�s you should not use words and split terrorists into moderate and never moderate.
I'd like to know what the main difference is,� Putin is quoted saying.
Moscow, indicted for targeting moderate rebel groups within the Syrian bombing by Western
capitals, has its own eyes directed at targets connected with the Islamic State. Nevertheless,
statements issued by government officials and Putin�s claims of Washington having fun with words
convey Moscow is under the impression that the remaining armed opposition to Assad is really a
When Putin received Assad at the Kremlin, he was quoted saying he considered the Syrian
government being �fully legitimate� in spite of the non-recognition of its classification as a State
by other Western capitals. He further lambasted free airline for neglecting to begin to see the high
threat that ISIS imposed while being blinded with the abominable figure of Assad.
�The so-called Islamic State [Isis] has gotten control over a tremendous territory. How was that
possible? Contemplate it: if Damascus or Baghdad are seized from the terrorist groups, they shall be
almost the state run authorities, along with a launch pad for global expansion. Is anyone considering
this or otherwise not?�
Furthermore, Putin stressed that it was incorrect to deal with the problem of Assad�s stepping
down without first having a much-needed dialogue.
�Fifty years ago, the streets of Leningrad taught me that when a battle is inevitable, you will need
to hit first. So far as I am aware from my discussion with Assad, he�s ready because of this,� Putin
Putin further claimed that Assad responded positively when asked about Russia forming �armed
opposition groups who're really prepared to fight terrorists in Syria.�
Around the possible partition of Syria as the means to fix its conflict, Putin verbalized that �This
could be the worst and quite a few unacceptable option, and will not result in the conflict being
solved. Whenever they it worse and give it a lasting character. In the event you split the united
states into different parts they're going to fight among themselves forever, it'll be unavoidable.�
The way forward for Syria could be bleak.
A newly released survey indicated that Putin�s approval rating had reached an archive most of
nearly 90% just as one aftermath with the Syrian airstrikes conducted from a primary 58.8% rating
back in January 2012 before the crackdown on opposition and Crimea�s annexation.
�The idea would have been to remove Assad using force, also to use force to get Damascus. I
don�t have confidence in conspiracy theories, however this will be the best way to clarify why
neither Britain nor the US has ever properly struggled Isis,� based on Yakovenko.
�We need closely in the Syrian Free Army. We know there's not an individual command center, and
that a few of these divisions have different goals. However, if on the list of FSA you will find divisions
that are really prepared to fight with Isis, that's our main enemy in Syria, and if you think that you
can find people or commanders and other contacts that could be appropriate and also to cooperate
using them, we may appreciate similarly info,� he was quoted saying. �We were again rejected.�
Reuters of Russian defense ministry data, however, show 80% of Russia�s official declared targets
were, ironically, towards areas in Syria not within the clutches of ISIS. Information from the Free
Syrian Army ended up being later asked as well as to the sharing of intelligence for the location of
ISIS targets in Syria in the meeting Yakovenko attended at the Foreign Office in London.
What is constantly on the baffle the general public may be the continuous increase in numbers and
strength of ISIS. Yakovenko asserted the quantity of airstrikes completed by Britain against Iraq
before would have easily destroyed the complete region. However, recent developments and media
coverage says otherwise.
