The West is working out scenarios to foment new conflicts in the CIS space, while the already existing ones, for example, between Russia and Ukraine, are the result of the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday at a meeting via video link with the heads of intelligence services of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), TASS reported.
"We also know that the West is working on scenarios to foment new conflicts in the CIS space," he said. "But we have enough of them," said the Russian president.
"It is enough to look at what is happening now between Russia and Ukraine, what is happening on the borders of some other CIS countries. Of course, all of this is the result of the collapse of the Soviet Union, this is all understandable. But the risks of destabilization are still growing, including the risks of destabilization of the entire Asia-Pacific region," concluded Vladimir Putin.
