Western countries are trying to provoke conflicts in the CIS, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with representatives of security and intelligence services of the Commonwealth of Independent States, RIA Novosti reported.
"Following their goals, our geopolitical opponents, our opponents, as we said just recently, are ready to expose anyone, anyone, any country, turn it into the epicenter of a crisis, provoke a color revolution and unleash a bloodbath. We have seen all this more than once," said the Russian president.
According to him, this is done to prevent the formation of a more just world order: the West is trying to ignite long-standing conflicts, creating new problems and crises.
"Unipolar hegemony is inexorably crumbling. This is an objective reality with which the West flatly refuses to accept. And we can see everything that follows from this," said Putin.
Along with that Putin underlined that the external security and internal stability are the key conditions for progressive development of the regional states. He urged to analyze the security risks for the CIS member states and strengthen mutual support.
