President Putin warns U.S; ‘We have might to put you in your place’ 

2 min read

President Putin warned the U.S. that Moscow had the might to put the United States in its place.

Through deputy secretary of Russia’s Security Council, President Putin accused the West of stoking a wild Russophobic plot to tear Russia apart.

Dmitry Medvedev, who served as president from 2008 to 2012 and now deputy secretary of Russia’s Security Council, said the United States had stoked “disgusting” Russophobia in an attempt to force Russia to its knees.

“It will not work, Russia has the might to put all of our brash enemies in their place,” Medvedev said.

“NATO’s expansion towards our borders, an all-out economic and information war against our country, non-stop threats and intimidation attempts, and the fierce persecution of our citizens overseas are the reason for the extreme rise in international tensions that the world is going through.”

The statement comes as Mr. Medvedev and Mr. Peskov, among others, were hit with asset freezes and travel bans by the UK and the West.

Since Russia invaded Ukraine, the United States and its European and Asian allies have slapped sanctions on Russian leaders, companies, and businessmen, cutting off Russia from much of the world economy.

President Vladimir Putin says that what he calls the special military operation in Ukraine was necessary because the United States was using Ukraine to threaten Russia and Russia had to defend against the “genocide” of Russian-speaking people by Ukraine.

Ukraine says it was fighting for its existence and that Putin’s claims of genocide are nonsense. 

Russia added that in spite of sanctions it can fare well without what it casts as a deceitful and decadent West led by the United States.

It said its bid to forge ties with the West after the 1991 fall of the Soviet Union was now over and that it would develop ties with other powers.
