The attention of the CIA

Putin said that the Central intelligence Agency of the United States «focus on Ukraine» in 2014. According to him, while Europe and the United States «saddled the horse of discontent» people «instead of figuring out what is really going on, they supported the coup».

The President said that he still does not understand why it was done.

According to him, people in Ukraine «I thought that attaching any form to the standards of the European Union will save them from the humiliating position in which they found themselves since the early 90s and to the present time.» According to Putin, «this is the main motive of all events».

«We have 17 years negotiating with the EU on the conditions of Russia’s accession to the WTO. And suddenly we declare that Ukraine and the EU sign agreement on Association fully opened the Ukrainian market. Thus, the EU would come with all of your goods to our territory without any negotiation, despite between us an agreement in principle during the 17-year negotiations on accession to the WTO», — said Putin.

If the United States took the White house, as it was called? A coup, or what? Or, do you think they came there to sweep the floor?» — said the Russian President.

«There was a coup», — he stressed.

«Vladimir» and «Barack»

The Parliament elected still under Ukrainian law, absolutely legitimate Parliament of Crimea announced the referendum. The Parliament of Crimea voted overwhelmingly to join the Russia», — said the Russian President.

He noted that Russia had created conditions «so that people could come and vote.» «We have not there was no fighting, there is nobody shot, nobody killed anybody,» — said Putin.
