A former colleague of Putin's from their time at the KGB in St. Petersburg, Patrushev made these remarks recently during a meeting of Security Council secretaries discussing Afghan issues.

Patrushev accused the United States and other Western powers of instigating violence in regions such as Ukraine and the Middle East with the aim of maintaining their dominance in global affairs.

He emphasized this point by stating, "Our meeting is taking place against the backdrop of an unprecedented aggravation of the international situation. The reason for this is the West's desire to maintain its dominance in world affairs at any cost," according to Newsweek.

He further alleged that the West's interference in places like Ukraine, where they sought to weaken Russia strategically, exemplifies their aggression. Patrushev reiterated Russia's stance that NATO's involvement in supplying weapons to Ukraine constitutes a proxy war against Moscow.

While Western nations have refuted Russia's claims, accusing Moscow of aggression since its invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Patrushev countered by accusing the West of meddling in the South Caucasus, specifically referencing the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

This isn't the first time Patrushev has issued threats against the West. In November 2023, during the Znanie (Knowledge) education exposition in Moscow, he boasted about Russia's nuclear arsenal, suggesting superiority over other nations in this domain.

He also hinted at Russia's possession of advanced strategic weapons, including hypersonic ones, ensuring the country's security for decades to come.

These statements from Patrushev have arisen amidst speculation regarding Putin's health, with rumors circulating about potential health issues such as cancer or Parkinson's disease.

Although reports from an anonymous telegram channel suggested a deterioration in Putin's health, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov dismissed these claims as "absurd information hoaxes."
