Putin rages against West in speech decried as absurd propaganda

  • Published on Feb 20, 2023 veröffentlicht
  • Russian President Vladimir Putin has made a combative state-of-the-nation speech, blaming the West for the war in Ukraine ahead of the first anniversary of the invasion he ordered.
    Putin spoke on Tuesday in front of a crowd of 1,400 people in Moscow, addressing members of both houses of parliament, military commanders and soldiers while video screens were also put up in large cities across the country.
    Besides warning the West of a global confrontation, Putin sought to justify the invasion, saying it had been forced on Russia and he understood the pain of the families of those who had fallen in battle.

    First year of war is decisive. Russia thought US defeat in Afghanistan meant they will not fund Ukraine as supplier.
    US has decided to soon retreat from its bases in the East and safeguard Europe as a whole. Over the next year or so US will let go of Pakistan South Korea Japan Saudi Arabia and lose influence.... Russia will get stronger in those places whilst Russia keeps up the slow grinding war in Ukraine to keep US busy in futile waste of energy resources

    Vladimir Putin miscalculated how suicidal the western world is. The west accepted the loss of higher energy and raw material costs, while Asia gained with cheaper energy and material imports.

      West is importing from Asia, mainly from India , still cheap.

      There is a cost for having and following principles of fairness and freedom. That is a cost that must be paid to advance civilization. The addition energy costs for the West will be minor in the long run and help the West achieve a better environmental solution. We must accept that Russia is on a suicidal path of its own making and all dependance on them need to be cut ASAP. Ukraine and other Eastern European countries will be the spearhead for democracy and will need to be supported.

    Both parties are carrying on a "special operation" and both sides can and have a reason to justify said operation.
    Putin's is a "special military operation"
    The others are carrying on a "justified " human rights abuse operation.
    Both think they are doing the right thing for a greater good, yet both are breaking INTERNATIONAL LAW.
    So any criticism of Putin as an abuser of international law, should apply to certain Canadian institutions.
    Both think they are doing the right thing (just this once), protecting their institutions and citizens. But both are breaking international law.

      There is no way Ukraine could have fought a battle on their own . That's why Nato gives them the tools to do a job with less soldiers. Look at the size of Russia compared to Ukraine 🇺🇦 Putler thought he could Bully the smaller country so the big guys come to help.

    I like how that ignoramus Marwan Kablan guy is saying Putin underestimated the Ukrainian military and overestimated the Russian military with a straight face. The fact of the matter is, Russia had for the most part defeated the ukrainians before the west stepped in with weapons and financial support. The ukrainian economy collapsed many months back. It's been on life support from the US. The US even pays the salaries of ukrainian soldiers. U can't fight a war without funds and weapons. Without western interference, Ukraine would have been finished off likely in under four months. You can't fight a war without weapons. In the Opening salvos, Russia specifically targeted, and crippled the ukrainian air force and weapons manufacturers. This meant that the Ukrainians were on borrowed time before running out of weapons. So, Putin did not underestimate anything. The ukrainians are on a life support extended to them by the west. Remove the west from behind Ukraine. Let Ukraine fight Russia solely on their own. Let's see then how long they last or how tough they are. There's a reason Zelensky has become an international professional beggar. Ukraine can't fight on its own. It needs constant support. The fact that collectively, the west has spent over 200 billion to support Ukraine proves my point. Cut off western support. The Ukrainian military will completely collapse in under two months at the rate at which they are being forced to use ammunition due to the high tempo of the conflict.
    More propaganda nonsense as expected. How is this even a war solely between Russia and Ukraine when you have thousands of NATO troops in Ukrainian military uniforms disguised as ukrainian soldiers. There are thousands of NATO soldiers masquerading as mercenaries too. An Austrian senior military officer admitted this. Per him, all they do is, troops from NATO states simply change uniforms, and they are now ukrainian soldiers. Russia is fighting multiple countries in Ukraine.
