Russian defence chiefs blame US for global security risks

Handout picture released by the official website of the Iranian Defence Ministry shows Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu during a meeting in Tehran on January 20, 2015Top Russian defence officials lashed out at the United States Thursday, accusing it of undermining global security by funding revolutions and expanding NATO in a bid to contain Russia. Speaking at a conference in Moscow attended by his counterparts from North Korea, Greece and Pakistan, Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said the world order needs to be redefined in a speech that focused heavily on the perceived threat from the United States. Frequently using the term “some countries” to refer to the United States and its closest allies, Shoigu accused Washington of destabilising the post-Soviet sphere by luring countries away from Russia with investment and supporting popular uprisings. “The main goal is to tear away from Russia the countries tied to it by culture and history,” he said.
