‘Putin dealt with UK, US forcefully’

‘Putin dealt with UK, US forcefully’
World  - Russian President Vladimir Putin has dealt with the US and British confrontation “very forcefully and absolutely correctly,” a political analyst tells Press TV.

“He [Putin] is certainly truthful about the facts that efforts by the British and the US are [aimed]…to do everything possible to force confrontation with Russia,” Mike Billington, editor for Executive Intelligence Review newsmagazine, said in an interview with Press TV.

The Russian president on May 24 accused the West of ignoring Moscow's security and economic interests in Ukraine, saying the West is seeking its own interests, particularly the possibility that Ukraine could one day join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

The analyst dismissed as “absurd” efforts to blame Russia for the crisis in Ukraine in the first place or for trying to disrupt the Ukrainian election.

He pointed to Putin’s recent visit to China and the conclusion of a major deal at the same time that India elected a new prime minister fully committed to collaboration with Moscow and Beijing, saying that US President Barack Obama is “totally isolated.”

  • This attempt to openly support Nazis, the rise of fascism in Ukraine and to get the West to agree to the demonization [effort conducted by]…Obama has completely failed,” the commentator added.

On May 21, Russia and China signed a 30-year, USD 400 billion deal in which China will be allowed to buy energy from Russia’s state-owned gas supplier, Gazprom.

The US and the EU accuse Russia of destabilizing Ukraine and have slapped a number of sanctions against Russian and pro-Russia figures.

Russia, however, rejects the accusation, saying the pro-Russia protests in Ukraine began spontaneously against the new government in Kiev.
