    Russian President Vladimir Putin said that international terrorist groups which are "de facto terrorist armies" receive "covert and direct support from certain states."

    "Bloodshed continues in a number of countries in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. International terrorist groups are actively participating in it [conflicts]. They are de facto terrorist armies which receive covert and even direct support from certain states," Putin said on Thursday at a meeting with the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB).

    Putin also said that the situation in the world has not become stable, while challenges and threats have been aggravated.

    "Over the past year, the situation in the world has not become stable, it has not become better. On the contrary, many current challenges and threats have been aggravated, while military-political and economic rivalry between global and regional centers of influence and some states has increased."

    Putin also called on the FSB to prevent the smuggling of drugs, weapons and biological resources via the Russian border.

    Earlier, Former Head of the FSB and current Russian Security Council's Head Nikolai Patrushev said that Russia has proof that some states and influential foreign companies "cooperate with terrorists."

    "We continue obtaining new proof of several states' and influential foreign and even transnational companies' cooperation with terrorists. We are talking about purchases of oil and other raw material from terrorists, as well as about paying them for obtaining permits for production and transportation of goods in territories under their control," Patrushev said in an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper.

      Excellent that President Putin again reiterates the facts that terrorists receive all kinds of support from nations supposedly fighting terrorism and loudly calling for routing out this global scourge-- behind the scenes actually support terrorism. So clear that it serves the global agenda of the so-called western establishment to keep money spinning wars going all over the world-- only way the US dollar remains afloat ...

      Is this a quiet reminder to Erdogan that he needs to let Al-Bab, Manbij and Raqqa return to Syrian Government control or face severe international sanctions?

      Exactly!

      Like Hezbollah in Lebanon, Houthi in Yemen, Ansarullah, Badr etc. in Iraq.

      Putin and Khamenei, an evil axes of sidewalk gangsters, are stalking the entire world with their paranoid actions.

      Time will tell the truth.

      Would have been fun to know how much economic support the "jihadi thugs" collect from countries like Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France and UK. I think it would shock someone to see billions going out of the countries to support terrorists.

      DELUSO, No like Israel, the ISI creator and manager, all these wars since 9-11 are Israeli wars fought by stupid Americans, for the Greater Israel and NWO.
      Putin has reach a point now where he has to be less ambiguous on Israel and Netanyahu in particular.
      Israel has its noose in Ukraine, Georgia, Turkey, Syria Iraq, Yemen, Egypt, Tunisia Morocco, Libya, they are the cause of all of the world's problems if you add the Jewish Zionist banks ( Creators of this illegal state) and their enslavement through debt.

      "Russian President Vladimir Putin said that international terrorist groups which are "de facto terrorist armies" receive "covert and direct support from certain states."

      Let us tell the truth, Putin is mellow pussy as always. He has no courage to call them out one by one and accuse them officially before world public. Every western countries are calling him murderer, killer, dictator, tyrant and all other names only he is as without spine and scared as rabbit and tries to please everyone. Because his pussy like attitude whole west is against him and Russia.

      He should start with slamming with sanctions which will seriously hurt EU (he cannot hurt USA except banning export of rocket engines to USA, which would be good idea. He should make EU to suffer the most as EU is conglomerate of many countries which will unevenly suffer from Russian sanctions and as soon as one of them said that enough is enough and stops anti Russian sanctions whole system will collapse. That would be opportune moment to change president of Russian Federation and bring someone new who would not have wet dreams about being accepted and loved by western politicians.

      We have seen in this last couple of years Putin taking very unusual and doubtful line of actions which only raised suspicions about his real intents. It looks as that he wants to protect some very particular interests and taking in account that he is always avoiding any criticism of oligarchs actually on his Q&A sessions he omits any question related to oligarchs, as that he is their protege.

      I do not know but it seams to me that he has no idea that western politicians do not care about any accusation for as long as they are not clearly nominated. Only then because domestic problems they are forced to react. As he is speaking so indifferently without naming no one will bother them as their media painted them as the most benevolent government and all atrocities are committed by Russians, Iranians, Hezbollah and SAA. So unless directly accused no one will give a shit about it. Putin is well aware of that and it is his personal choice not to offend his “partners” and “friends” (that is already revolting to hear that garbage), because his secret wet dreams are to befriend them once again (they never liked him as they genetically hate Russia and anything Russian) and he is as puppy happy to jump around them.

      I cannot understand Russian population to support such person just because here and there he makes good move for Russian people. They are constantly comparing him with psychopath and Russian demolisher Yeltsin and of course no one could be that bad as it was that piece of shit, so they should compare him to no one but judge and scrutinise what he did not do and could do. That is media responsible not to emphasise the things that are bad for Russian nation and good for selected few.
