The risk of the West making ill-conceived and impulsive steps is increased because of its dogmatism, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, speaking to the Foreign Intelligence Service.
“In their practical policy [Western countries] are guided by one goal— by any means to maintain its dominance. Such dogmatism, the burden of the past, the unwillingness to face the truth inevitably increases the risk of further ill-conceived impulsive actions on the part of the West, — said Putin.
During his speech, Putin also said that Western countries have driven themselves into a trap because they did not see the weakening of their influence in the world.
Putin promised to devote one of his next speeches to an analysis of the current political situation in the world. However, he did not say when exactly this performance would take place.
