Putin: Claims of Russia’s aggressiveness are ‘illusion’ used to solve domestic problems

  • Putin and May spent more than an hour talking about the strained UK-Russia relations during the G20 summit.

Via RT


Moscow has no aggressive intensions against any country, but other countries’ policies will always be met with a symmetrical response, Vladimir Putin said during a final press conference at G20 summit in Osaka, Japan.

“I want to tell you the good news – we don’t have any intentions to carry out aggressive actions against anyone,” Putin said when asked if Russia is ready to “choose a different path” in order to improve ties with the UK and the West.

[Russia’s aggressiveness] is an illusion, wishful thinking to have a foreign adversary whose presence is good for solving domestic policy issues.

An enormously tense meeting between Putin and Theresa May made headlines on Friday, as did the prime minister’s icy handshake and a warning that there will be no improvement of bilateral ties until Moscow stops “the irresponsible and destabilizing activity” against the UK.

While Moscow has no plans to initimitade anyone, its actions “will always mirror those of our partners,” Russian president argued.

We’ll treat others the same way we’re treated by them. I want everyone to remember this.
That said, Russia is more than interested in “improving” ties with London and other Western countries. “Common sense”should, and hopefully will, prevail, he added.

Putin and May spent more than an hour talking about the strained UK-Russia relations during the G20 summit. The one-on-one meeting was far from friendly, with May raising the Salisbury incident and stressing that there can’t be “business as usual” after former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned by what London claims was a Russian-made nerve agent. Moscow denies the allegations, pointing out the inconsistencies and accusing London of trying to hush up parts of investigation.

Putin earlier commented on the Skripal case, telling the Financial Times that there’s no irrefutable evidence of Russia’s guilt. He also said the “spy scandal” has resulted in a deadlock in relations, which harms both businesses and the public.

She may have been drugged by MI6. They do stuff like that.

Resolution of incidents like the Skripal hoax is covered by: https://www.opcw.org/chemical-weapons-convention/articles/article-ix-consultations-cooperation-and-fact-finding Russia requested the UK handle that incident through a joint investigation as agreed on in the ‘Chemical Weapons Convention’. The very fact that the UK refused to cooperate within the framework of that ‘Chemical Weapons Convention’ is the most compelling evidence that it all was a hoax. Given May holding the Home Office before becoming Prime Minister she must have had ties to MI5/6 for along time. We already have seen Orbis/Steele exposed as a bunch of con artists in connection to the fake ‘Trump Dossier’. We also know… Read more »

OPCW? Doesn’t that stand for ‘Organization of Preconceived Chemical Weaponry’?

And where are Skipal and his daughter? They haven’t been seen in over a year. Why is the UK keeping Julia, a Russian citizen, prisoner? Are they still alive?
I hope Mr Putin asked May questions like this.

They sleep with the fishes. MI6 wrapped them up in old newspaper and sold them to unsuspecting tourists in Piccadilly Square along with some soggy chips, which BTW: is how they told the Saudis how to dispose of Kashoggi as fish kebabs.

London still has tourists? Why?

They’re just masquerading as tourists on our instructions. Mostly, they’re the ISIS jihadi citizens we sent off to Syria and now roam around aimlessly in London after returning home. We give them little tourist badges so as not to upset the public. It was a joint decision we made with MI6, to feed the Skripals to them piece by piece. We figured they’d already acquired a taste for human flesh and wouldn’t notice the difference. Besides, it helps to keep them pacified, or so we hope anyway..

Will these ISIS veterans be applying for extra benefits as sufferers from PTSD?… because we’re overstretched as it is.

Sounds about right. Not entirely without merit, at least not 80 years ago, but seriously people. Waken up, take responsibility and rein you governments in to what we need, not what they want.

Rhetorical question. Some randomer hands you a life changing sum of money and says they’ll return at some point in the future for it. 5 years pass an no sign of the person. What do you do with the money. We are that randomer who’ve asked our government to protect our interests, yet we’ve wandered off and not called back. What is our government doing with our interests.

“The NATO member-countries assure us that they are interested in de-escalation, the tools to prevent dangerous military incidents, that they are interested in making sure that the parties avoid misunderstanding each other’s intentions,” Traitors! And after they hornswaggled me into building an LNG terminal with nowhere to go. I tell you, the Russians are coming. The Russians are coming! Who will buy my gas now before the Russians grab it? NATO troops? Aha, now I can charge a premium to sell their own gas back to them like my heroine, Yulia. On second thought, for all I know it’s Russian… Read more »

Teresa May is a shit, and fortunately also a has-been. Who cares what she thinks or says.
In fact the Brits generally have been playing fast and loose with all other nations for a long long time.
“Drop the Big One” on London and watch how fast world relations improve.
They have been screwing with us non stop since before 1776 and also since then.
UP theirs!

Be mindful all this isn’t strictly a national issue. More an insideous corruption of borders.

Brits seem to have this genetic thing going on with them, along with the overbite, which may or may not be connected. I think the science of phrenology was dreamed up there to help to identify the origins of this erratic behavior. In any case, it’s spilled over into America’s word attitudes, and not for the better. My apologies to any self-aware Brits that read this but you have to know that it’s nothing you can hide from the world. Best to know thyself, much as I’ve become resigned to knowing myself as an American, much as it pains me… Read more »

Oh, give it a rest Mrs May. If “Novichok” had been used, there wouldn’t have been anyone left in Salisbury OR the surrounding area … all humans would have been kaput.
So please … stop flogging a dead horse.
And where ARE the Skripals? Are they still breathing?

Using the old scale – 0.3 ounces of Novichok would have killed the city of London. Needless to say, what does go on at all those bio labs in Salisbury?

I believe I’d like to propose a direct analogy here to the use of novichok or facsimile and the few holes blown into tankers above the water line. Neither were intended to do physical harm and both were intended to do political harm that ironically, might have led to vast physical harm….if you catch my finger-pointing drift.. Cui Bono……follow the trail and you’ll never fail.

Ha Ha….May looks like she wants to ‘shirtfront’ Putin, in support of her Aussie friend Tony the Jughead, no doubt.

Putin is an ideological trend-setter. Just look at the hyper-reaction to his ‘Liberalism is obsolete’ remark. BoJo of the “Conservative Party’ stepping up in defense of ‘Liberalism’. Tusk in his own manner doing the same. In my day, conservatives and liberals were ideologically opposed and far as I know, still are. So, what the hell is this concept of ‘Liberalism’ that started bouncing around between their ears, anyway? In short, they have no idea. With algorithms filtering everything but the kitchen sink these days, you’d think someone would design one for these moments. Oh, there is one already….the old Soviet… Read more »
