Ukraine morphed into main global center of far-right extremism, says top Russian official

Nikolay Patrushev also stressed that "Russia is fighting precisely against the puppet Kiev regime"

MOSCOW, November 3. /TASS/. Ukraine has now become the world’s primary center of far-right extremism, Secretary of Russia's Security Council Nikolay Patrushev said on Thursday, speaking at a meeting of CIS security council chiefs.

"Today, Ukraine has become in fact the chief global center of ultra-right extremism. By organizing a coup d'etat in Kiev in 2014 and starting the accelerated transformation of Ukraine into a so-called anti-Russia, the Anglo-Saxons set out not only to prepare a bridgehead for putting pressure on our country, but also to create a precedent for further fragmentation of the Russian ethnos in order to completely eradicate it," Patrushev noted.

He also stressed that "Russia is fighting precisely against the puppet Kiev regime."

"Ordinary Ukrainians are simply used as a bargaining chip, a tool to contain Russia," the Secretary of Russian Security Council added.

According to him, a bid for neo-Nazi forces was made to ensure a long-term consolidation of Ukraine in the Western sphere of influence. ashington and London, as well as American and British businesses, behaved in a similar fashion prior to the outbreak of World War Two, he recalled. They ignored Hitler's belligerent plans and even condoned them, hoping to direct Nazi aggression against Moscow, which ultimately led to the loss of tens of millions of lives, Patrushev said.
