Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin has accused the US of destabilizing the world by trying to enforce its will on other countries.
In a speech to political experts in Russia's Black Sea resort of Sochi today, Putin cited the wars in Iraq, Libya and Syria, to back up his claim. Speaking with strong emotion, he said Washington has been "fighting against the results of its own policy" in those countries.
Putin has accused the US of trying to cast Russia as a danger to the rest of the world and forcing its allies to impose sanctions against Moscow over the Ukrainian crisis.
He said the sanctions aim to push Russia into isolation and will not succeed.
The Ukrainian crisis has brought Russia-West relations to their lowest point since the Cold War.
