“You said America wants to humiliate us. This is not the case. They do not want to humiliate us, they want to subjugate us, they want to solve their problems at our expense, to subdue us to their influence. Never has anyone done this in history in relation to Russia and will not” – said Russian President.
Meanwhile, Putin added that America managed to subjugate its European allies.
“But what they did is subjugate their ‘allies’, or, as they say, their satellites,” – said Russian President.
In addition, Putin questioned the effectiveness of defending Western European interests.
“I am sometimes at a loss, because the defense of the so-called “common European, Western values” at the expense of your own national interests usually carries a few problems. First, it is unclear what kind of values. There is no criteria, it’s just general conversations about democracy, about this and that. It’s not a right for a coup d’etat?! It’s not a right to genocide?! What values?” – said the head of Russia.
