[Video - English Subtitles] Putin: Who created ISIS?


September 26th, 2015

In 2014, President Obama named the three major threats to US national security; ISIS, Russia and Ebola (because spiraling national debt, unequal distribution of wealth, over-incarceration, climate change etc are less pressing issues.)

It would be fair to say that Russian politicians took much offence to being placed in this list, next to a terror organisation and a disease.

In relation to this statement, Putin answers a number of questions from a US journalist at the Valdai International Discussion Club, late 2014.

To draw his point to a close, Putin mirrors the words of John F Kennedy in a 1963 speech titled "A Strategy for Peace", unusual for its time due to the warm address to the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War.
