Patrushev Warns, Kremlin Will Not Permit ‘Establishment of a Western-Controlled Regime in Russia’

May 18, 2022 (EIRNS)—The secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev spoke at a meeting of the Russian Security Council’s scientific advisory board, and delivered a very hard-nosed warning against the Western attacks on Russia. According to a May 17 account by RT, Patrushev said that the current “unprecedented geopolitical crisis” was caused by the Western-led destruction of “the global security architecture and the international legal system.”

He asserted that, “in the end, the West seeks to create conditions to establish a regime in Russia, controlled by the West, as was already done in Ukraine and in a number of other states.” “The special military operation thwarted these plans,” he underscored, explaining that Moscow had to “use this preventive measure, because the level of threats to national security, disregard to our country’s interests has entered a new level, which threatened Russia’s very statehood and existence.”

According to Patrushev, the goals of the collective West’s actions are obvious: “to create sanction restrictions for Russia’s communication with the rest of the world, including science, and modern high technologies, as well as to undermine the Russian economy, to slow down the country’s development, to create conditions for spiritual, moral and cultural degradation of the people.”
