MOSCOW, April 14. /TASS/. The United States and its allies are using the situation in Ukraine in an attempt to undermine Russia, Security Council chief Nikolai Patrushev has said.
"It is clear that Ukraine as such is of no interest to the Americans and their allies. The situation in that country is being used in an attempt to undermine Russia and destabilize the Shanghai Cooperation Organization," Patrushev said at a meeting of SCO security councils’ secretaries.
Patrushev said that Ukraine "once a steady developing state, has turned into a hotbed of lasting tensions."
"As we can see, with the tacit connivance of a number of countries, including those who were members of the anti-Hitler coalition, manifestations of fascism are being revived," Patrushev said.
