In a press conference at the Valdai Discussion Club 2014 in answer to a question to a United States Journalist, President Vladimir Putin addressed his concerns regarding the US and their role in the middle east and ISIS. Although the film footage of the press conference has been banned, Live leaks released a copy of the press conference to the public. The words of Putin are transcribed below word for word from the video originally provided by  Inessa S.

The press and mainstream news has been avoiding this information. It is a scathing , diplomatic account of Russia’s position on the politic behavior and actions in the middle east regarding Syria and ISIS, as well as a reprimand to our press who have failed to do their job.

Putin’s complete oration to the US Journalists:

First point. I never said that I view the US as a threat to our national security. President Obama, as you said, views Russia as a threat, but I don’t feel the same way about the US. What I do feel is that the politics of those in the circles of power, if I may use those terms, the politics of those in power is erroneous. It not only contradicts our national interests, it undermines any trust we had in the United States. And in that way it actually harms the United states as well.

Undermined trust, with the understanding that they are one of the global leaders in politics and in matters of the economy.

I can stay silent on many things, but as I always say, and Dominic here has mentioned it, “one sided actions” in the continuous search for the next “alliance” and coalitions which are predetermined – this is not a method that seeks to discus and agree on mutual grounds of understanding. These are one sided actions. They are carried out all the time. They lead to crises.

I’ve said this before, another threat that President Obama mentioned was ISIS. Well who on earth armed them? Who armed the Syrians that were fighting with Assad? Who created the necessary political information and climate that facilitated this situation?

Who pushed for the delivery of arms to the area? Do you really not understand who is fighting in Syria?

They are mercenaries mostly. Do you understand they are paid money? Mercenaries fight for which ever side pays more. So they arm them and pay them a certain amount. I even know what these amounts are. So they fight. They have the arms. You can’t get them to return the weapons of course, at the end.

Then they discover elsewhere pays a little more…so they go fight there. Then they occupy the oil fields.

Where ever in Iraq, Syria, they start extracting the oil and this oil is purchased by somebody. Where are the sanctions on the parties purchasing this oil?

Do you believe the US does not know who is buying it? Is it not their allies that are buying oil from Isis? Do you not think the US has the power to influence their allies? Or is the point that they indeed do not wish to influence them?

Then why bomb ISIS? In areas they started extracting oil and paying mercenaries more in theose areas the rebels from “civilized” Syrian opposition forces immediately join ISIS, because they pay more. I consider this absolutely unprofessional politics. It is not grounded on facts, in the real world.

We must support civilized, democratic opposition in Syria. So you support, arm them, and then tomorrow they join ISIS. Can they not think a step ahead? We don’t stand for this kind of politics of the US. We consider it to be wrong. It harms all parties, including you (USA).

When it comes to the consideration of our national interests I would really like it if people like you (US journalists) who posed the questions, would one day head your government. Maybe then we can somehow reverse the situation.

If that doesn’t happen, I will at least ask you to deliver my messages to your government. To the President of the United States, the Vice President, and all other relevant people. Tell them that we do not want or look for any confrontation whatsoever. When you start to consider our national interests in your actions, any other disagreements we may have they will self-regulate. This needs to be done, not just talked about. You must consider the interests of others, and you must respect other people.

You cannot “squeeze” others having considered only the benefits that you require from whatever… in economies, in your military activities, in everything. Look at Iraq the situation is terrible. Look at Libya and what you did there, that got your ambassador murdered.

Was it us that did this?

You even had a security council decision to establish a no fly zone. What for? It was so that Gaddafi’s air force couldn’t fly over and bomb the rebels. This wasn’t the smartest decision, but okay… what did you proceed to do yourselves? You started bombing the territory. This is in clear contravention of the security council resolution. It is even outright aggression over a state. Was it us that did this? You did this with your bare hands.

And it ended with the murder of your Ambassador. Who’s fault is it? It is your fault. Is it a good result that your Ambassador was murdered? It is actually a terrible catastrophe.

But do not look around for somebody to blame when it is you making these mistakes. You must do the opposite; rise above the endless desire to dominate. You must stop acting out of imperialistic ambitions. Do not poison the consciousness of millions of people like there can be no other way but imperialistic politics.

We will never forget our relationship when we supported the US in the war of independence (civil war). We will never forget that we collaborated in both world wars as allies. I personally believe that the geo strategic interests of Russia and the US are essentially the same. We must focus on this interrelationship.

In 2014, President Obama named the three major threats to US national security; ISIS, Russia and Ebola (because spiraling national debt, unequal distribution of wealth, over-incarceration, climate change etc are less pressing issues.)%)))

It would be fair to say that Russian politicians took much offence to being placed in this list, next to a terror organisation and a disease.

In relation to this statement, Putin answers a number of questions from a US journalist at the Valdai International Discussion Club, late 2014.

I’m not affiliated to them but I encourage those interested in Eurasian politics to follow Valdai on Facebook, for truthful insights with leading experts.


  1. […] It is no small surprise that aka Obama’s back-pocket pernicious mainstream media is highly critical of Russia’s military presence and explosive involvement in its defense of the sovereign government of Syria. Russia’s President Putin is no fool. His warplanes don’t make (foolish) distinctions between Muslim terrorists (who are all) intent upon destroying Syria’s government and infrastructure. All terrorists receive the same enemy treatment. That includes all anti-Syrian mercenaries. […]

    1. What is sadder is all the lies of Putin. Putin is not Yeltzin. He sent the Rothschild central banks out of Russia and put in prison the banksters that had committed usury with Russia people. I like that. He destroyed the veins of communism that were still harming Russia. I like that. He is ridding the world of ISIS fast. I like that. He is out to stop Islamic and ISIS persecution of Christians. I like that.

        Please don’t relate ISIS to Islam…ISIS are not Muslims….it is a terrorist group funded by Obama regime and Jews. A terrorist has no religion.He can say I am Muslim or a Christian,but actually,doesn’t have any religion.


  3. Apostle, 13th says:

    As much as I agree with President put in most his analysis of events in the middle especially Syria and Libya but sometimes he behave hypocrite in that he projects much of his image to represent Rusisns people, as if Rusians people are dumb and can never think except his own vision and his own way of see things almost similar thinking by policy makers in America dominated by nei imperialist that the president of the United States has no proper power or influence to effect much about. In both the congress & the senate, that’s where America policies are manufactured and of these members of the two bodies have outlived their usefulness and out the reality or modern times, they still stick I the past ideological way of taking things


    1. Our Congress does not create foreign policy; and its ability to affect it by economic policy has been largely usurped by Obama. In fact its ability to do anything constructive is marginal. Its degree of corruption is its epitaph, if the media would do its job.

      Then you don’t know Quran. They are not following Quran at all, nin fact they are doing everything against Quran and Islam. Therefore, when you have no knowledge of a religion please do not make a comment based on FOX or CNN reporting. Take some time and find the truth instead.
      We all know with facts that they are created by Israel and if you dig a little deeper you will come to know that their flags are printed in Israel.

        1.) Kill any one who insults Islam or Mohammad. (Koran.33;57-61).

        8.) We the non-Muslims sworn enemies of Muslims and Islam. (Koran.4;101).
        9.) We the non-Muslims can be raped as sex slave. (Koran.4;3 & 24/5;89/23;5/33;50/58;3/70;30).
        10.) We the non-Muslims the vilest of creatures deserving no mercy. (Koran.98;6).
        11.) Muslim must terrorized us (non-Muslims). (Koran.8;12 &59-60/ Bukhari.4;52;220).
        12.) Muslims must strike terror into non-Muslims hearts. (Koran.8;60).
        13.) Muslims must lie to us (non-Muslims) to strengthen and spread Islam. (Koran.3;28?16;106).
        14.) Muslims are allowed to behead us (non-Muslims) (Koran.47;4).

      Ochidi, you are as brainwashed as the rest of them. Assad did not gas his own people. Just because “America” said he did doesn’t mean he did. Just like how Iraq was supposed to have weapons of mass destruction The UN did an investigation and found it was not him. Also, Independents did as well. They even found the devices used were home made not military grade.. Do some more research and you will see.

      He did exactly what a foreign government should do. Criticized it. But nothing more. The fact that the U.S. government will shake hands with and justify one countries atrocities. While condemning another and using it a bases to inadequate a foreign land and killing 8 times as many civilians as the evil government they I intends to overthrow. At least this time they did not fabricate that they have no choice but to invade a foreign country do to the weapons of mass distrustion the have stock piled. To falsely legitimize the criminal act of of breaking international law and invading. At the end of the day what threat did Syria pose to the United states of america? Now what threat does the terrorists the the white house created now pose? You might not agree with how your neighbor saises there child. But you don’t go and take them from your neighbor and say it’s ok that I break the law because it’s just in my opinion. Try thinking for yourself before you respond.

  6. It is true the USA has created most of the problems in the middle east with their ever changing foreign policies – policies aimed to sell military grade weapons to keep the weapons manufacturers & lobbyist profitable – and if you can keep supplying these weapons to both sides of a conflict it’s a win win for the manufacturers & lobbyist. (not to mention the Oil Industry.)

  9. Since its redefinition by the British Foreign Office as the Middle East and its division into more than a dozen nation-states, complete with artificial boundaries, after the conclusion of First World War, the region has been in turmoil mainly due to these very geographical and social reengineering of the region. As such, what is happening in Syria is a snapshot of what is happening in the Middle East as a whole which due to certain historical legacies, its geo strategic location, abundant resources and regional/global power politics has seen crises after crises for a century or so. These crises have been aggravated by the onslaught of Arab Spring, Iranian ambitions for nuclear parity with Israel and resource scramble. In the wider backdrop of rapidly shifting regional alignments, there are several conflicts and wars going on in the Middle East with deep rooted causes having serious implications for regional stability and global security. What is happening in Syria should be seen in this context.
    I have written a short book about the Syrian crises which is available at Amazon (@US$ 2.99) at the following URL


    1. The Balfour committees drew lines in the desert where there were none before. The populations were tribal and nomadic with little or no agriculture except in the ‘fertile crescent’ of Tigres/Euphrates and the coastline with Israel and Lebanon. Syria, Jordan, Yemen, Arabia and the Gulf States developed what they had because of the emergence of oil as an economic wealthmaker and development of infrastructure by Western capital and development companies. Governments were and continue to be Tribal, Feudal but less and less nomadic.

    The more I hear the truth about everything going on in Syria. Makes me wonder if Obama did this so all these so called refugees would be flooded into all these Countries.. for his new world order. Are whatever his agenda maybe. How else would they have smuggled in thousands and thousands of these muslims who could also have Isis hidden within them.


  11. Yai Bala Daniel says:

    Thought provoking article there! A lot of realism in what Putin is saying here. The US and allies’ war efforts in Iraq and Lybia has done more harm than good to those respective countries. The issue of arming rebels to fight against a sitting government is purely outrageous. That has also led to the proliferation of arms into very dangerous hands in the region. It’s time America exercise some degree of humility and analyze if her past policy in Iraq and Lybia have yielded desirable or undesirable results. Isn’t it said that it’s insane to be doing the same thing over and over and having undesirable results? It’s time America reshaped her foreign policy.


  12. Ahmad Abdullahi imam says:

    Most of what president Putin says are true, it is time for the leaders in many western countries have a rethink in their foreign policy. Secondly for those mistakenly seeing Isis as Muslims, they are not Muslims and no true muslim will do what they are doing. As for those who are mis interpreting the Holy Quran pls I advise them to go and learn the true interpretation of the Holy Quran and they will appreciate the word of Allah and know that Isis are really non believers of the Holy Quran.


  13. The truth sayer says:

    @Don’tgetfooledbyIslam: You have quoted some verses upside down and it is still due to thecsame fact that you are an illiterate who know nothing about revelation and i will not be able to help you unless you bury your pride and hate agenda and show clear interest in learning. If you en a book and start quoting verses without looking at the verses before and after them and even the reason for their revelation, then you are just like a local illiterate who buys a newspaper and telle people he is reading when, in reality, he turned the paper upside down. Unless you understand why some verses were revealed, you will continue to assume the role of a scholar on Islam when trully you are an illiterate who has only exposed himself to mockery. People who are embracing Islam in droves have seen these verses you are quoting but have they stopped them from guidance? No, only an arrogant scum of the earth and fuel for hellfire like you will always look for excuses until death catches up with you.


    1. Don'tGetFooledByIslam says:

      Until death catches up with me? Oh, let me guess, you are one of those muslims I warn everybody about? No worries, dude. I have seen many of your kind, all big mouth when standing 50 with guns around one guy attached to a chair, but whining and looking to the ground when singled out and confronted by only one person. I have NEVER seen a courageous muslim, only cowards who fle their countries in the search of “help” for their own shithole they came from.
      Yes I have seen many of you and luckily most of them through a scope on many places on this planet. Fuel for hellfire you say. I am ready … are you? Because when you and your barbaric heathens will come to my door I am indeed ready … ready to unleash this hellfire upon you khelbs !! And so are many of my brethren.
      PS: I am so glad to be “illiterate” … well, at least I am literate enough for not needing some self-declared holy idiot to interpret a book full of fairy tales and mythical creatures to me. Keep your faith to yourself and don’t bring it to me. If not I will have to look up my hydro and wind speed charts again as well as to do some memory training on trajectory conversion.

    Such hate wow I think back thru history the holy bible has been Used for witch burning slavery rape killed millions of people from Africa from 1600’s to present day. It always goes back to people not really the religon when honestly read f.or good.


    1. We are playing the blame game aren’t we. Yes, Christians behaved badly hundreds of years ago, buying African slaves from the Arab slave traders. We don’t anymore. They still do, that’s the issue. To say Koranic verses have been taken out of context is to ignore the Muslims who also ‘take it out of context’ and behave exactly as described. The problem is not our ‘misreading’ of the Koran, it is the Muslim ‘misreading’ who creates conquest, mass murder, institutional terrorism, slavery, child sex and other atrocities. Own your culture and change it; don’t whimper that the bad guys are bad Muslims, it doesn’t wash.

    This is what I have written so far, Its just a draft at this point but thought this would be a good place to start As an American Citizen I am requesting that those who have the power to file charges against Barock Obama and any followers of this council. Larry Shaw, Sarwat Husain, Nihad Awad, Ibrahim Hooper, who are Islamic Dignitaries be incarcerated to the full extent of the law for Treason. and Add falsefying documents to claim to be a U.S. citizen to Barock Obama in order to campaign for President of the United States. So that he could campain strongley for change the citizens were looking for, ONLY to deceive the American people to be elected in order to corrupt our nation while he exalted a terrorist group to his council who are all allowing and finacially helping our worst enemies cross our borders, that will only end in the destruction of our fine nation as we know it, And to void out anything they have made into law, not being in the best interest in the United States and its citizens which shall not be enforced to the citizens of the United States Immediately. Since they really do not have any rights to do so while It truth are Illegals themselves. Impersonating a President of the United States of America and commander and chief of our military.
    How can Islamic Dignitaries have a voice in American Plitics? I dont believe they are here for the best interest of the American people. Or The U.S.A.
    WHO ARE THESE ‘SHARIA LAW’ ENFORCERS ( Terrorists ) TO TELL A TRUE AMERICAN WHAT THEY CAN AND CANNOT DO?? This is unacceptable and can not and will not be tolerated.
    I see Refugees coming over in pack of ALL MALES, Now I know ALL Americans would try to get the women and children out of a bad situation instead of sending all the men ( if thats what you want to call these so calledd refugees) out of the bad situation, This is a act of Evil happening , And if we dont take a stand now, We all will be in serious trouble. In which no one including any other poloticians who do not agree with the ‘SHARIA LAW’.
    We need to take a stand and take our Country back NOW! we can not wait for our next election, These LAWs may already be in effect. And will be tough to reverse, since who ever doesnt believe with be sentenced to death.
