MOSCOW, October 26. /TASS/. Ukraine is actually controlled from the United States and being used as a battering ram against Russia, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with the heads of delegations to the 51st meeting of the CIS Council of chiefs of security agencies and special services on Wednesday.
He drew attention to the fact that armed conflicts were being flared up near the CIS countries’ borders.
"What they - those who are doing this - are trying to achieve is well seen in Ukraine, which has become a tool of US foreign policy. The country has actually lost sovereignty and is directly governed by the United States, which uses it as a battering ram against Russia and against our Union State with the Republic of Belarus, and the CSTO and the CIS in general," the Russian leader said.
The United States’ true attitude towards its satellites is clearly visible, he stated.
"Almost immediately, the Ukrainian territory was turned into a testing ground for military-biological experiments. Ukraine’s military muscle is being beefed up with heavy weapons. The Kiev regime’s wish to get nuclear weapons is left unnoticed. The Kiev authorities declared this intention in public, but everyone is keeping quiet. There are also plans to use the so-called ‘dirty bomb’ for provocations," Putin said.
