Putin Warns of Conspiracy to Collapse Russia

(WatchDogReport.org) – The US has accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of trying to destabilize Eastern Europe for years. The Trump administration was heavily critical of the former Soviet nation and issued sanctions to punish it. However, Putin is now saying that his country is the one being targeted by foreign powers.

On Wednesday, February 24, Putin reportedly ordered his counterintelligence agencies to increase efforts to protect the country from alleged activity from the West that he says is meant to destabilize Russia. He claimed there are unnamed foreign entities pushing a “policy of containment” in an effort to “derail [Russia’s] development.”

Putin made similar accusations when opposition leader Alexei Navalny was arrested earlier this year. He did not provide any proof of his accusations, but it’s clear tensions are increasing. That’s something that should concern everyone.
