The Russian president says the United States is promoting terrorism by financing militant groups and sowing the seeds of division among nations.
Vladimir Putin added that the US and its allies are still providing direct funding and weapons to the anti-government Takfiri militants operating in Syria. The Russian president noted that this is one reason why the ISIL Takfiri group has turned into a de facto army. He said that because of US support, ISIL has become powerful, justifying Washington’s unilateralism. Putin also advised those supporting terrorism to reflect on what they are doing, adding that one day the terrorists will turn on them and bring death and destruction to their countries.
