Pelosi's visit 'deliberate' move to destabilize region - Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday, during his video address to the 10th Moscow Conference on International Security, that United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip to Taiwan was a "thoroughly planned provocation" and a "deliberate" move aimed at destabilizing the region.

"The American adventure in Taiwan is not just a trip of an individual irresponsible politician, but part of a purposeful, conscious US strategy. [It is] a brazen demonstration of disrespect for the sovereignty of other countries," underlined Putin.

Furthermore, the head of Russia warned that the US is trying to shift the attention of its citizens away from "acute problems" such as "falling living standards, unemployment, poverty [and] deindustrialization," by using Moscow and Beijing, "who defend their point of view."
