Western Spy cases aimed at “Holding Russia Back”, claims President Vladimir Putin - TNBCLive

Today, Russian President Vladimir Putin at the annual press conference has dismissed spy scandals in the West as it objected at undermining the country’s international standing.

President Putin has cited the poisoning of ex-double agent Sergei Skripal along with his daughter in Salisbury, and conviction of Maria Butina last week in the US for acting as an illegal foreign agent.

He continued that “If there hadn’t been the Skripals, they would have thought up something else. There is only one aim: to hold back Russia’s development as a possible competitor.”
