US...SR? | Putin says US is following the path of the Soviet Union
RT, 08 Jun 2021
Russian President Vladimir Putin compared the current trajectory of international relations strategy adopted by the United States government to the one that led to the dissolution of the USSR while speaking at SPIEF'21.
Putin said the United States was wrong to think itself “powerful enough” to get away with threatening other countries – a mistake, he said, that led to the downfall of the former Soviet Union.
The remarks come just days before Putin's meeting with US President Joe Biden, whose cabinet imposed a broad array of sanctions on Russia in April, including curbs to its sovereign debt market.
