Russian President Vladimir Putin reiterated on Friday while addressing the heads of the defense departments of the SCO and CIS in a video message, that the Western countries have turned Ukraine "into a colony" and are now using the country's people "as cannon fodder against Russia."

Putin stated that the West has "shamelessly exploited and exhausted" Ukrainian resources "for a number of years." The head of the Russian state further commented that the Western allies are "pushing [Kiev] onto a suicidal path."

Putin went on to accuse the West of "deliberately" planning to "multiply chaos and aggravate the international situation." He explained that the "potential for an international conflict is growing" as a direct consequence of the West's wish to maintain "political, economic, financial, military and ideological dominance."
