U.S. Wants Russia Collapse to Gain Its Resources - Security Council Head

Nikolai Patrushev

The U.S. wants to dissolve Russia so it can get access to its resources, Russia's Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said in an interview with the Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper on Tuesday.

“The US government has a goal — to dominate the world. It's possible that they want to achieve this goal through Russia's collapse, which will allow the U.S. access to its rich resources, which, in their opinion, Russia does not deserve to possess,” Patrushev was quoted by the newspaper as saying.

Patrushev also added that Moscow is not interested in a standoff with the West. “The initiator of the current conflict is the U.S. Europe obeys their will,” Patrushev was quoted as saying.

In the interview with the Kommersant newspaper last year, Patrushev said that the U.S. wished that Russia didn't exist as a country and that it considers Russia's possession of the Far East and Siberia illegal.
