the West is playing with Russia is unfair, trying to keep her and not to develop. The President of Russia Vladimir Putin told in an interview with Paul Zarubino, the author of the film “Russia. The Kremlin. Putin” on TV channel “Russia 1”.
As he remembered Putin, after the collapse of the USSR, he believed that the disappearance of ideological conflict with the West will lead to universal prosperity. But in fact, said the President, Russia tried to “manipulate and control”.
this is the conclusion Putin came, taking the post of Director of the FSB, and closed by reading reports and materials. Putin said that attempts to keep Russia in a “dilapidated condition” began with events in the Caucasus, long before the crisis in Ukraine.
