Vladimir Putin: Russia has never taken and is not going to take part in actions aimed at overthrowing legitimate power

Russian President Vladimir Putin said during an interview for American journalist Charlie Rose for PBS and CBS that he knows exactly what role the United States played in the overthrow of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, noting that the Russian Federation has many “all kinds of contacts and thousands of connections” with people living in Ukraine.

“And we know who, where, when he met, worked with those people who overthrew Yanukovych, how they were supported, how much they paid, how they were trained, on what territories, in what countries and who these instructors were. We all know. As a matter of fact, our American partners no longer hide it, ”RIA quotes him. "News".

On the question of the role of the Russian Federation in the change of power in Ukraine, Putin noted that Russia had never participated and does not plan to take part in actions that are aimed at overthrowing legitimate power.

“And Russia has never accepted and is not going to take part in actions aimed at overthrowing legitimate power,” he stressed.

According to Putin, the Russian Federation respects the sovereignty of Ukraine and expects the same attitude from other states.

“But we would like other countries to respect the sovereignty of other countries, including Ukraine. And to respect sovereignty is to prevent coups, anti-constitutional actions and illegal displacement of legitimate authorities, ”he noted.

When asked about the Russian military presence on the border with Ukraine, Putin answered with a counter-question about the American military presence in Europe, emphasizing that it is not a crime to force one’s own troops to the border with any state.

“In Europe there is a tactical nuclear weapon United States, let's not forget about it. What does it mean that you occupied Germany or only transformed the occupation troops into NATO troops? And if we keep our troops on our territory on the border with some state, do you think that this is already a crime? ”He said.

      I answered well. But if we don't do it, the Americans do it, and in our "backyard". So think, play "cleanliness" in the international legal sense or engage in "prevention" in order to avoid the consequences that, for example, we now have in Ukraine. what

    But Russia has never taken and is not going to take part in actions aimed at overthrowing legitimate power. But we would like other countries to respect the sovereignty of other countries, including Ukraine. And to respect sovereignty means to prevent coups d'etat, anti-constitutional actions and illegal removal of legitimate authorities.

    I agree with him in the stated position, moreover, I think that after a sea of ​​mud poured on Russia, the Kakly are unworthy of being helped in overthrowing the government. Themselves nakaly themselves and clean.

    And maybe she didn’t take it in vain. In 2008, it would be logical to dismiss the same tie-eater and take him to Tskhinval for trial. And judging by how fast then from the Russians "timid Georgians fled" © Lermontov, with this, unlike the capture of Grozny, the airborne battalion would have completely coped.
    And according to the current ukrohunte, the court is crying, even in Donetsk. True, in this case, everything would have to be done politically correctly, so that a well-deserved landing on a stake would not have pierced in the face of the "progressive world community", but hemp rope is also not bad, and there is a precedent - Nuremberg.

    About the occupation of Germany, well, just "handsome". Thin yet precise trolling. In fact, in Berlin you will no longer hear German speech and you will not find a German with fire during the day. If this is not an occupation, then I don't even know what.
    If the GDP manages to register as a candidate, he will really replace Merkel in the next election.
    PS Do not remind me of Moscow. I know it myself. crying

    I watched as this American journalist with a smart look began to ask "uncomfortable" questions. Received awkward cube answers. He had a pale appearance and a pasta gait. Bravo Little Johnny. Crush cockroaches

    Why did the Council of Federations take permission - in order to show hotheads that the decision on Crimea is final and is not subject to appeal. And then they would have stuck ... we would have undoubtedly hung lyuley, but then our guys would have died. And so everything counted out bloodlessly.

    This was a purely public statement, akin to the same troop movement to the border. According to the Constitution, the President of Russia already has ALL RIGHTS for using the aircraft anywhere, including and abroad.
