'They started the war' - Putin's annual address to the nation
- Published on Feb 20, 2023 veröffentlicht
- Vladimir Putin has blamed the West for starting the war in Ukraine and claimed Russia responded with force "in order to stop it".
In a speech describing his aims for the second year of his invasion of Ukraine, the Russian president said Ukraine was in talks with the West about weapons before Russia invaded its neighbour on 24 February last year.

Masterful interpreter, especially given that he's interpreting into his second language.
A shame then that they couldn't find anyone who could have interpreted Russian into their own native language.
hahaha, I think the translation of the speech was automatically available shortly before the speech begins ?
chances are he got the material well before the event so he could prepare. Simultaneous translation is a different kind of dance. i dont think he did that.
@MrSzczyglowski he didn't do any translation but he was certainly interpreting in real time.
@Ed Paterson not a chance. Sky wouldn’t allow for it nor would the Russians.
This is the only place I could find the speech. Thanks Sky News
It is already blocked by Clip-Share 👎
This really is showing where Clip-Share is standing regarding this sad 😢they should let people decide
@Konstantin Bush It's not blocked!
It's still up here in Spain anyway!
@Patrick Ganly Now it works once again
FYI - Audio begins at 4:44. The first 40 minutes of the speech are especially pertinent for Western audiences interested in hearing Putin's side regarding the war in Ukraine. After that, the speech is more like a "state of the union (motherland)" speech.
And ends at 4.45
BARILOCHE VILLA LA ANGOSTURA SAN MARTIN DE LOS ANDES USHUAIA
A R G E N T I N A
During the first 40 minutes we witness a man desperately trying to justify himself and his actions.
Ah yes I remember watching when it was live for only 1 hour and 40 minutes and then exiting after thinking the speech is 4 hours
Kudos to Sky News for the posting. 🤙🇺🇸
WOW, They have no clue that they are totaly decived,
@TOMAS who, Americans?
@Robert Barth NO < The Russians
If the world spent this much time and money on helping one another, lifting each other up. We could do wonderful things.
@MaxsSeveredHead Sadly true.
Yes, humanity is focused on all the wrong things!
That's true, maybe it will happen if we get out alive from this point in humanity.
I just want humanity to live and grow as a civilization bro
@Doug Micheals yes I agree
Not gonna happen as long as an ex-kgb weasel can possess so much power.
He is a good actor Leave Ukraine 🇺🇦
The people that run this world will never allow such a thing to happen, they would lose all their power
Btw, I’m not talking about Putin, he’s just legitimately looking out for his country
Not aligned with his views for sure, but grateful that Sky News provided the entire speech. Useful to hear firsthand. (Of course, best to have heard it in Russian, with subtitles, but hard to do live-so no hate there).
I'm aligned with a few of them
RUSOS BIENVENIDOS A ARGENTINA
May we all find peace and love and may the lord lay his hands on all the world leaders and give them sense and wisdom to do what is right.
Nice words… shame they do absolutely nothing.
Ask Biden&Soros !!!not Putin &Lavrov
Zombie jesus has risen .. truly he is risen ... mmmm brraaiinnssss
Although I would much rather prefer subtitles, I appreciate your efforts.
For English subtitles video go to Michael Rossi Poli Sci channel👌
I appreciated the translation while I work
@Ivy Bisoen - *THANKS!*
That was *exactly* what I was looking for. Unfortunately the YT search feature is pretty lousy.
@Ivy Bisoen Awesome, thanks.
respect to the old guy sleeping during the speech at 9:43 😂😂
He was just resting his eyelids. Putin's speech opened his third eye
Putin's Speech hit his chakras....he was having an spiritual Awakening 😂😂😂😂
I think he's dead
@RaydioNation Today it might be possible.:))
Best part of putin speech is at 23:00 min
I wish to hear his speech in Russian language.
@Missy too bad
Thanks Skynews for posting this. This isn’t covered or shown in Canada.
canada is the new iron curtain of information
Or the USA...
Credit to Sky News for making this available.
They will be canceled soon
@Sandra Stumbo Hegelian dialectic, they need controlled opposition..
@Sandra StumboThey shouldn't be.
They uploaded something that is publicly avaible anyways.
🤣🤣 This is the Government allowing this. Let's make the British public believe this
i feel sorry for the guy sat behind the big green turban
Looking at the audience... made me think of the medals our aristocracy here in the UK bedeck themselves with for doing absolutely sod all.
In March 2003, British troops took part in a coalition invasion of Iraq. After a month of fighting, they overthrew Saddam Hussein's regime and occupied the country. But it would be a further six years before Britain's combat operations came to an end.
Sky news know how to do it this translators on point 💪😡
Getting a mcdonalds ad while Putin is speaking is amazing.
Thanks for letting us draw our own conclusions!
@MsBojana007 LOL the same guy that now says the world is flat and the moon is made of green cheese not, yea his elevator no longer goes to the top floor anymore.
He seems so honest.. more honest then some of our politicians. He’s right, our nation is being torn apart on a family level.
I love how they removed the misinformation option from the objection page.
Karens everywhere are triggered
🤣🤣 🤣That is a good one.
Because it's not "misinformation"
@Super Jeff Stanton Jeffs everywhere have their heads still in the sand!
@Sue Templeton it's better described as flat out lies/propaganda
look at the pure joy in that audience 🙃
Putin likes men
@Paintball Videos 😂
This is kinda good I don't have to pause over and over just to read what MR Putin are saying but Am kind of skeptic because I really am not sure if the translator are saying what he's saying.
pretty accurate, I've heard the original.
That old lack of trust in the media makes finding the truth difficult.
My left ear enjoyed this for almost 2 hours.
their audio is completely fucked, for me i had to put volume on 100%
I thought my new earphones was broken
just change your audio settings and it will work for both lol amateurs
$20 this is purposeful neglect from the engineer
I have heard the whole speech translated into Czech by an extremely skilled and honest translator. I will listen to this version and make a conclusion.
Edit: poor people not being able to listen to the Czech translator. This translator is not exactly translating the exact meaning at all times.
Damn really!? Can u translate for me plz😍
ti možeš razumjet ruski
Source: "Trust me."
It would have been helpful to hear at least some of Putins tone in the background so that I can get an idea of how he was appealing to his audience.
Just go look for the original
Credit to sky news for being actual journalists, most news platforms would rather tell your their own biased interpretation of what Putin said
Thanks to Sky News for publishing this event. Said that. I must say that the tone of the political speech seems to me more respectful of the audience in terms of its content than that of the European leaders.
Great job Sky News
They will be canceled too
This is the only downside is, we don’t know if they’re gonna follow through on this. In theory all of the things, Putin talked about when it comes to what he’s going to do for Russia is really good. And most country should strive for that. Now the major question is, is this all smoke or will they actually follow through on it it
more smoke than a fleet of ships laying a smokescreen
Putin does aa he says.
Actually in the last 20 years the state of life improved significantly here and continues to do so so yes i believe
A very bright moment in which Sky News does real journalism and not just spread the propaganda.
like ruSSia does everyday
it is important to hear Putine's propaganda; it is also important to compare it to facts and not to be deceived by his lies.
Not the usual way they "report"stuff otherwise..
so where's the whole speech?
I watch only independent channels but will now add Sky for making this available. I am in NYS
“For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, but forfeits his soul?”
Tell that to Klaus
What benefits us having a soul
When the world is soulless
@Porldweace Well said. Hard to be sane in an already insane world.
Making a mistake to cover up previous mistake is called blunder
ask any us president this!
Thanks for english translation!
I'm about to start watching this.
I entered "Putin full speech" into Clip-Share and all that comes up is corporate mainstream media videos of it.
Therefore, my assumption is that the English translation will be deliberately misinterpreted to make him sound crazy and aggressive.
Otherwise, why aren't we allowed to view videos from independent channels ?
I'm over an hour and a half in and so far so good. I have also grabbed this link of President Putin speaking with English subtitles shared by another commentor on here who stated the English subtitles are translated by a Russian. I am looking forward to hearing/reading them both.
This is the most faithful translation of Lafontaine's fable "The Wolf and the Lamb" into political reality...
Just read the summary. Great analogy.
BUT NOT EVERY LAMB IS GOING TO RUN FROM THE WOLF. HM WHEN TWO MEN TRIED TO STALK AND TAUNT ME, I STALKED THEM BACK UNTIL THEY RAN. ITS NOT ALWAYS THE LAW THAT EVERY 'BULLIED LITTLE LAMB IS GOING TO RUN AWAY. ESPECIALLY IF THE LAMB, HE HAS ALREADY DIED BEFORE AND COME BACK AGAIN, AND HE IS NOT BOTHERED ABOUT THE ISSUE OF HIS OWN MORTALITY.
Wait I thought it was a special military operation ?
Only if winning
Everyone in the audience looks so happy!
Its either that . or face the quick way down from the top floor of ones property ?
Love and peace is all we need
thanks for the translation
The most important of Putin's instructions to the Federal Assembly:
- to establish for fighters a vacation of at least 14 days every six months, excluding travel time;
- the level of equipping the nuclear deterrence forces with the latest weapons is 91.3%, it is necessary to reach this level in all areas of the armed forces;
- each family of a person who died during a special operation or a veteran of the Northern Military District must be assigned a personal social worker;
- The Ministry of Defense and Rosatom should be ready to conduct nuclear weapons tests if the United States does so. We will not be the first to do this;
- to immediately begin construction of housing for defense industry employees and launch a program of preferential rent at a rate below the market;
- it is necessary to remove any interdepartmental formalities, omissions and other nonsense in order to develop the economy, it is also necessary to create additional conditions for citizens to invest money, earning money within the country, while it is important to protect these investments;
- to continue the development of regional projects, including the construction of roads, highways, free gasification and the development of trade routes;
- to reform the system of higher education.
Each family of a person who died will get appointed a commisar
All things that wont actually be done
Why the audience did not sit back down after clapping?
It was obvious he had not finished his speech!
Because they couldn't wait to leave, putin talks absolute bollocks
Did he start?
@Philip Woods smile and wave boys, smile and wave.. and we might just avoid falling out of a window or going to gulag
@chronicbluntz the US still trying to jail assange.thats a gulog.......
He's right, but force rarely solves anything without causing more damage; in fact people predicted he would react this way, hence the gaslighting.
would've just been better to put subtitles than to have a translator struggle through the entire thing
sounds like a decisive mind in use of mental fuculties. brave and determined.
It’s better if they let His voice and use subtitles
At 27:10 the for sure that soldier is crying! This is deep! 👀👀👀
Uh. Yeah. Soldiers have a lot of reasons to cry these days. It's deep alright. Elbow deep.
39:47 how everyone there really feels.
I would prefer to hear this live in Russian and with English Subtitles!
Can’t complain though, just grateful for sky news posting this.
Western economic advisors who supported Yeltsin et al can consider themselves very lucky to get away with such diplomatic criticism as Vladimir Vladimirovitch shows his elder statesmanship.. But they know who they are. One of them is even having very public changes of heart right now on many of the current narratives...
If only we could get a state of the union this detailed. Haven't had one since I've been alive (29 yrs)
Putin lollyby speech, people are sleeping in the audience.. 😅
Maybe your eyes got some defects
They're just holding back tears of pure joy :D
Putin - "If I use the word special enough, I can get any with anything!"
Special military operation
I DARE JOE BIDEN TO INTRIEVE WITH PUTIN ON WHY HE SHOULD STOP THE WAR
OMG! Somebody still knows how to do a decent audio translation. It's sad that mediocrity has become exceptional.
To think that there are journalists in prison for less information sharing.
Thanks for posting this
Russian speakers! I’m interested in how accurate this translation is, can anyone give me a general idea?
Another commentor shared this link also stated the English subtitles are translated by a Russian.
@Sue Templeton nice, thanks!
It's spot on
Credit to America's Freedom Of Speech to not censor this interesting speech of our enemy
They tried to broadcast Bidens speeches in Russia, but they couldnt find a translator that spoke gibberish😅
Sky news is Australian, no?
Absolutely ❤ WEF & EU heads are SS new generation
Headquartered in Washington DC
The look on the crowd is more telling than Putin's speech.
HIROSHIMA NAGASAKI NEW YORK LONDON
It would be so interesting to hear what the audience are thinking while they are lapping up the BS.
@nevmcc Someone translated one lady leans to the next person and says 🐄💩in ruSSian, the vid is floating around on other platforms
@nevmcc lol They are thinking this: How on earth can I get the F out of Russia ... and .... When will someone get rid of PUTIN .... HELP HELP
Have the Kremlin watched RealLifeLore docs on the conflict. Love to hear Vlads comments to that simple reality cash flow dependent and oil and gas flows.
A Russian speaking person here that can confirm if the translation is accurate
TY? I was wondering that.
Well, is it?
Yes it is accurate
Not perfect but accurate. He missed a couple of short sentences when Putin was talking fast.
Thanks sky for being a lion in a world full of hyenas 💪
Mr. PUTIN is a great statesman, may God give him good health and bless the Russian nation! LONG LIVE RUSSIA AND THE RUSSIAN PEOPLE
Putin babbles nonsense, "the west propvoked and attacked russia" yet the west didn't want to support Ukraine in Donbass, the west losed eyes when russia annexed Crimea and preferred to buy russian oil and gas, the west didn't want Ukraine to join NATO even though Ukraine always asked, the west tried to satisfy Putin. And only after putin's little special operation when everyone turned back on russia (exclusively thanks to Putin) he started whining, he was very brave and cheeky when he announced his special operation. It's really funny when russians whine that the west pumped Ukraine up with weapon and the same russians laugh at how slow the west is at supporting Ukraine with serious weapon. Biden doesn't want to give Ukraine long rrange missiles and F-16, cause Biden doesn't believe that US are at war with Russia, only Putin whines that Russia is at war with US. If US was really at war with Russai Zelensky would get everything he needs from the beginningn and wouldn't need to ask and beg every day for weapon.
Thanks for this.
My left ear enjoyed this! 😅 only messing! Appreciate the live translation Sky! My left ear is thankful, my right ear says tell the sound guy how to use a mixer! But my left ear still thanks !
the lefthanded path wins again ))
NESTOR KIRCHNER A R G E N T I N A
Maybe learn to use yours. My speakers and earphones worked fine, left and right.
@Joe Blake I doubt considering every comment says same
Lol as a American i laughed at how many times Putin said invest in Russian but how can in do this Sir when i am dead? Or in a wheelchair?
6 types of russian leaders speaking in youtube:
1. without translation
3. single channel sound
4. bad sound
5. bad translation
6. any of the combinations from above
It almost seems like it's intentional.
Does anyone know where I can find their videos with proper subtitles?
What ? I can’t hear ya
I had a hard time finding any translation .
I can hear clearly. That's type 7.🙃🙃🙃
It is intentional. I have met many Russian speaking Russian to English translators. Many of them have been brilliant. Putin speaks relatively simple Russian, it shouldn’t be hard to get a good translation.
In my Czech language They translated only 10 min.😡
Well thats 2 hours of my life I'll never get back, still a better watch then the eternals though
Eternals was great
Omg that was bullshit movie
Его язык тела хотел показать сильного человека, но его движения рук умоляли кого-то заменить его.
The full address to the nation lasted for two hours and twenty minutes, so I am guessing the interesting parts got redacted.
A good leader seeks peace and if war cannot be avoided, seeks victory.
I'm proud of Zelenskyy too
@Filipe Silva Why did Zelensky ban 18 year olds from leaving? Is that good that teenagers cant leave? Where are they, are they mobilized? How many waves are mobilized? What is the quantification of these scenarios, where are people???
@reka mud How is that surprising? Their country is being attacked. I don't understand how mobilization is surprising in wartime, this has been done throughout the entirety of human history.
@Kristian l But a lot speak russian, are they executed on the spot?
True. Peaceful options were off the table so Putin had to declare war.
I was listening and was like jeez this guy is nuts. I didn't realize it was Putin butboncenI did it alllll made sense.
How are they nuts?
my left ear enjoyed this translation
Sorry little princess
mine too LUL
Cheers, just realised my speakers were cross wired.
This is the only big media company that DARED (because in our "democracies" is a daring act to speak off) to publish this speech and offer a translation.
My thanks to Sky News for staying true to the ideals of Journalism.
Well they attempted to but would have been great if they left us hear the actual speech itself. I have been searching for days to find this speech with actual subtitles but still no luck.
@Alessandro Cinque Cheers mate
ITS SOOOOO BORING.
@JJ BIGGMANN the trick is to remember that more than 5 thousand Nukes are hanging on our heads and all of a sudden it becomes very interesting
I feel the person translating what Putin is saying is not translating what he's saying in a clear and concise manner; but rather convoluting his speech.
That's the nature of most contemporary translators.
Exactly, some sentences is not even complete
original with subtitles translated by russian guy
because who wants to hear a western narrator over putin am i right?
This is being translated in real time, during Putin’s speech. While some translators may be better than others, I suspect real time translation to be more difficult.
Love Putin ❤
thanks sky news. the entire rooms sideways glances speaks volumes...
This is how we make peace
I'm not sure if I'm supposed to like or dislike this video
Doesn’t matter tbh it’s Clip-Share it’s kind of irrelevant now.
Try thinking for yourself, that might be a good start.
Make up your own mind and exercise your fundamental right to freedom of thought.
V for Vladimir Putin ♥️ V for Victory 🇷🇺♥️🇺🇸 God Bless these people that love Mother Russia ‼️
Russian citizen (even those blinded by denial) must have some lingering feeling that if all that Putin says is true, then why is Russia not bombed by NATO, US and why are they seeing sanctions now, like never bf.
Never heard Putin's real voice before, wow...
Please tell me that this is a 🐕 💩 joke.....?
Yep. This is how he talks.
And we think our politicians know how to lie. I hope everyone in Russia saw this and I hope they know what they were listening to.
Russia is correct to defend Her borders as USA did with Cuba.
Russia is correct
@Account Deleted Ukraine is correct to defend her borders against this invasion (: Ukraine is correct.
TLDR; "I wasn't competent or intelligent enough to stop Ukraines independent future with words or diplomacy, so I resorted to violence".
Thanks for a full video, translated.
too bad Marina Yankina did not hear this speech about how wonderful ruSShka is.. alas she fell out a window just like 30 other people in ruSSiahka that Putin did not like.
The audience are wondering why there was no warm up act. They feel duped! 😂
Putin doesn't have a Superbowl budget. All spent on "special military operation" Palace on the Black sea and big tables.
I really hope for Russia that all the suffering and lives they are giving for this war ,is not for nothing like in WWII .And hope that what they are doing now is really gonna improve the living standards of those countries/continents(South America/Africa/Asia) who had a hard time the last few decades/centuries because of western domination. only then this war can be justified.
The designated survivors are the ones who said if they saw the police in a fight they would help them lots said they will do nothing and some said they would help fight against the police
A Q&A session would have been interesting.
Just like hold door in game of thrones…..I am sure Putin is one of the final words he will be chanting as his fate nears
"we didn't start the fire"..
It was always burnin', since the World's been turnin'
No, we didn't light it but we tried to fight it
The us lit it since the 19th century lol
It's important to hear ALL parties is the value in this broadcast...the truth must be decided by the people of this planet!!!
They disarm they fight hand to hand honorable combat I remember
Finally, some channels start to realise that reporting on the events 'As Is', is better than BS
