US Behind Migration Crisis in Europe - Putin


Russian President Vladimir Putin claims that the 
United States stands at the origin of many problems 
that the European Union faces at the moment, including 
the problem of migration.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The United States stands at the 
origin of many problems that the European Union faces 
at the moment, including the problem of migration, Russian 
President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with Swiss RTS 
television channel on Monday.

"Across the world and in Western countries there are 
tectonic shifts in public opinion toward greater protection 
of national interests. Right now Europe faces a specific 
problem — a massive influx of migrants. But did Europe 
stand at the origins of the decisions that led to this 
situation? We have to be honest, these decisions came 
from overseas, while Europe deals with the problem,”  
the Russian leader said.

He added that many more examples of the misleading 
US guidance could be named.

"But that does not mean that we should demonize the 
US policy, they carry out a policy that serves their own 
interests. But we need to seek a balance of interests," 
Putin pointed out.

Europe has been recently beset by major migrant 
crisis as thousands of people have fled conflict-torn 
countries in North Africa, the Middle East, and Central 
and South Asia. According to the United Nations data, 
137,000 refugees crossed the Mediterranean Sea into 
Europe in the first six months of 2015.
According to the January's poll, carried out by Gallup 
and released by the International Organization for Migration, 
52.1 percent of Europeans believe that migration levels in 
their home countries should be decreased.
