Some of the world leaders could be blackmailed, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday at the Valdai Discussion Club meeting in Sochi.

SOCHI, October 24 (RIA Novosti) – Some of the world leaders could be blackmailed, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday at the Valdai Discussion Club meeting in Sochi.

"There are reports that a number of world leaders are getting undisguisedly blackmailed. It is not without reason that the 'Big Brother' is spending billions of dollars on surveillance around the world, including on their closest allies," Putin said.

Putin questioned the justice of such situation.

"Let's ask ourselves how comfortable and safe it is to live in such world. How fair and rational this is. Maybe, we do not have serious grounds for anxiety, disputes and asking unpleasant questions," the Russian leader said.

    It is happening all the time. very true, the only way to end this is to scrap NASA. Until then this sort of thing will continue. After NASA goes then British MI5 will need to be scrapped too, but for now that is a pipe dream
