Fucking Brilliant: Address by the President of the Russian Federation (Putin’s initial address on the War)

No matter who tries to stand in our way or create threats for our country and our people, they must know that Russia will respond immediately.

In this context, in accordance with Article 51 (Chapter VII) of the UN Charter, with permission of Russia’s Federation Council, and in execution of the treaties of friendship and mutual assistance with the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Lugansk People’s Republic, ratified by the Federal Assembly on February 22, I made a decision to carry out a special military operation.

The purpose of this operation is to protect people who, for eight years now, have been facing humiliation and genocide perpetrated by the Kiev regime. To this end, we will seek to demilitarise and denazify Ukraine, as well as bring to trial those who perpetrated numerous bloody crimes against civilians, including against citizens of the Russian Federation…Vladimir Putin

President of Russia Vladimir Putin:

Citizens of Russia, friends,

I consider it necessary today to speak again about the tragic events in Donbass and the key aspects of ensuring the security of Russia.

I will begin with what I said in my address on February 21, 2022. I spoke about our biggest concerns and worries, and about the fundamental threats which irresponsible Western politicians created for Russia consistently, rudely and unceremoniously from year to year. I am referring to the eastward expansion of NATO, which is moving its military infrastructure ever closer to the Russian border.

It is a fact that over the past 30 years we have been patiently trying to come to an agreement with the leading NATO countries regarding the principles of equal and indivisible security in Europe. In response to our proposals, we invariably faced either cynical deception and lies or attempts at pressure and blackmail, while the North Atlantic alliance continued to expand despite our protests and concerns. Its military machine is moving and, as I said, is approaching our very border.

Why is this happening? Where did this insolent manner of talking down from the height of their exceptionalism, infallibility and all-permissiveness come from? What is the explanation for this contemptuous and disdainful attitude to our interests and absolutely legitimate demands?

The answer is simple. Everything is clear and obvious. In the late 1980s, the Soviet Union grew weaker and subsequently broke apart. That experience should serve as a good lesson for us, because it has shown us that the paralysis of power and will is the first step towards complete degradation and oblivion. We lost confidence for only one moment, but it was enough to disrupt the balance of forces in the world.

As a result, the old treaties and agreements are no longer effective. Entreaties and requests do not help. Anything that does not suit the dominant state, the powers that be, is denounced as archaic, obsolete and useless. At the same time, everything it regards as useful is presented as the ultimate truth and forced on others regardless of the cost, abusively and by any means available. Those who refuse to comply are subjected to strong-arm tactics.

What I am saying now does not concerns only Russia, and Russia is not the only country that is worried about this. This has to do with the entire system of international relations, and sometimes even US allies. The collapse of the Soviet Union led to a redivision of the world, and the norms of international law that developed by that time – and the most important of them, the fundamental norms that were adopted following WWII and largely formalised its outcome – came in the way of those who declared themselves the winners of the Cold War.

Of course, practice, international relations and the rules regulating them had to take into account the changes that took place in the world and in the balance of forces. However, this should have been done professionally, smoothly, patiently, and with due regard and respect for the interests of all states and one’s own responsibility.

Instead, we saw a state of euphoria created by the feeling of absolute superiority, a kind of modern absolutism, coupled with the low cultural standards and arrogance of those who formulated and pushed through decisions that suited only themselves. The situation took a different turn.

There are many examples of this. First a bloody military operation was waged against Belgrade, without the UN Security Council’s sanction but with combat aircraft and missiles used in the heart of Europe. The bombing of peaceful cities and vital infrastructure went on for several weeks.

I have to recall these facts, because some Western colleagues prefer to forget them, and when we mentioned the event, they prefer to avoid speaking about international law, instead emphasising the circumstances which they interpret as they think necessary.

Then came the turn of Iraq, Libya and Syria. The illegal use of military power against Libya and the distortion of all the UN Security Council decisions on Libya ruined the state, created a huge seat of international terrorism, and pushed the country towards a humanitarian catastrophe, into the vortex of a civil war, which has continued there for years.

The tragedy, which was created for hundreds of thousands and even millions of people not only in Libya but in the whole region, has led to a large-scale exodus from the Middle East and North Africa to Europe.

A similar fate was also prepared for Syria. The combat operations conducted by the Western coalition in that country without the Syrian government’s approval or UN Security Council’s sanction can only be defined as aggression and intervention.

But the example that stands apart from the above events is, of course, the invasion of Iraq without any legal grounds. They used the pretext of allegedly reliable information available in the United States about the presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

To prove that allegation, the US Secretary of State held up a vial with white power, publicly, for the whole world to see, assuring the international community that it was a chemical warfare agent created in Iraq.

It later turned out that all of that was a fake and a sham, and that Iraq did not have any chemical weapons. Incredible and shocking but true. We witnessed lies made at the highest state level and voiced from the high UN rostrum. As a result we see a tremendous loss in human life, damage, destruction, and a colossal upsurge of terrorism.

Overall, it appears that nearly everywhere, in many regions of the world where the United States brought its law and order, this created bloody, non-healing wounds and the curse of international terrorism and extremism. I have only mentioned the most glaring but far from only examples of disregard for international law.

This array includes promises not to expand NATO eastwards even by an inch. To reiterate: they have deceived us, or, to put it simply, they have played us. Sure, one often hears that politics is a dirty business. It could be, but it shouldn’t be as dirty as it is now, not to such an extent.

This type of con-artist behaviour is contrary not only to the principles of international relations but also and above all to the generally accepted norms of morality and ethics. Where is justice and truth here? Just lies and hypocrisy all around.

Incidentally, US politicians, political scientists and journalists write and say that a veritable “empire of lies” has been created inside the United States in recent years. It is hard to disagree with this – it is really so. But one should not be modest about it: the United States is still a great country and a system-forming power.

All its satellites not only humbly and obediently say yes to and parrot it at the slightest pretext but also imitate its behaviour and enthusiastically accept the rules it is offering them. Therefore, one can say with good reason and confidence that the whole so-called Western bloc formed by the United States in its own image and likeness is, in its entirety, the very same “empire of lies.”

As for our country, after the disintegration of the USSR, given the entire unprecedented openness of the new, modern Russia, its readiness to work honestly with the United States and other Western partners, and its practically unilateral disarmament, they immediately tried to put the final squeeze on us, finish us off, and utterly destroy us.

This is how it was in the 1990s and the early 2000s, when the so-called collective West was actively supporting separatism and gangs of mercenaries in southern Russia. What victims, what losses we had to sustain and what trials we had to go through at that time before we broke the back of international terrorism in the Caucasus! We remember this and will never forget.

Properly speaking, the attempts to use us in their own interests never ceased until quite recently: they sought to destroy our traditional values and force on us their false values that would erode us, our people from within, the attitudes they have been aggressively imposing on their countries, attitudes that are directly leading to degradation and degeneration, because they are contrary to human nature. This is not going to happen. No one has ever succeeded in doing this, nor will they succeed now.

Despite all that, in December 2021, we made yet another attempt to reach agreement with the United States and its allies on the principles of European security and NATO’s non-expansion. Our efforts were in vain. The United States has not changed its position. It does not believe it necessary to agree with Russia on a matter that is critical for us. The United States is pursuing its own objectives, while neglecting our interests.

Of course, this situation begs a question: what next, what are we to expect? If history is any guide, we know that in 1940 and early 1941 the Soviet Union went to great lengths to prevent war or at least delay its outbreak.

To this end, the USSR sought not to provoke the potential aggressor until the very end by refraining or postponing the most urgent and obvious preparations it had to make to defend itself from an imminent attack. When it finally acted, it was too late.

As a result, the country was not prepared to counter the invasion by Nazi Germany, which attacked our Motherland on June 22, 1941, without declaring war. The country stopped the enemy and went on to defeat it, but this came at a tremendous cost. The attempt to appease the aggressor ahead of the Great Patriotic War proved to be a mistake which came at a high cost for our people. In the first months after the hostilities broke out, we lost vast territories of strategic importance, as well as millions of lives. We will not make this mistake the second time. We have no right to do so.

Those who aspire to global dominance have publicly designated Russia as their enemy. They did so with impunity. Make no mistake, they had no reason to act this way. It is true that they have considerable financial, scientific, technological, and military capabilities. We are aware of this and have an objective view of the economic threats we have been hearing, just as our ability to counter this brash and never-ending blackmail. Let me reiterate that we have no illusions in this regard and are extremely realistic in our assessments.

As for military affairs, even after the dissolution of the USSR and losing a considerable part of its capabilities, today’s Russia remains one of the most powerful nuclear states.

Moreover, it has a certain advantage in several cutting-edge weapons. In this context, there should be no doubt for anyone that any potential aggressor will face defeat and ominous consequences should it directly attack our country.

At the same time, technology, including in the defence sector, is changing rapidly. One day there is one leader, and tomorrow another, but a military presence in territories bordering on Russia, if we permit it to go ahead, will stay for decades to come or maybe forever, creating an ever mounting and totally unacceptable threat for Russia.

Even now, with NATO’s eastward expansion the situation for Russia has been becoming worse and more dangerous by the year. Moreover, these past days NATO leadership has been blunt in its statements that they need to accelerate and step up efforts to bring the alliance’s infrastructure closer to Russia’s borders. In other words, they have been toughening their position. We cannot stay idle and passively observe these developments. This would be an absolutely irresponsible thing to do for us.

Any further expansion of the North Atlantic alliance’s infrastructure or the ongoing efforts to gain a military foothold of the Ukrainian territory are unacceptable for us. Of course, the question is not about NATO itself. It merely serves as a tool of US foreign policy. The problem is that in territories adjacent to Russia, which I have to note is our historical land, a hostile “anti-Russia” is taking shape. Fully controlled from the outside, it is doing everything to attract NATO armed forces and obtain cutting-edge weapons.

For the United States and its allies, it is a policy of containing Russia, with obvious geopolitical dividends. For our country, it is a matter of life and death, a matter of our historical future as a nation.

This is not an exaggeration; this is a fact. It is not only a very real threat to our interests but to the very existence of our state and to its sovereignty. It is the red line which we have spoken about on numerous occasions. They have crossed it.

This brings me to the situation in Donbass. We can see that the forces that staged the coup in Ukraine in 2014 have seized power, are keeping it with the help of ornamental election procedures and have abandoned the path of a peaceful conflict settlement.

For eight years, for eight endless years we have been doing everything possible to settle the situation by peaceful political means. Everything was in vain.

As I said in my previous address, you cannot look without compassion at what is happening there. It became impossible to tolerate it. We had to stop that atrocity, that genocide of the millions of people who live there and who pinned their hopes on Russia, on all of us. It is their aspirations, the feelings and pain of these people that were the main motivating force behind our decision to recognise the independence of the Donbass people’s republics.

I would like to additionally emphasise the following. Focused on their own goals, the leading NATO countries are supporting the far-right nationalists and neo-Nazis in Ukraine, those who will never forgive the people of Crimea and Sevastopol for freely making a choice to reunite with Russia.

They will undoubtedly try to bring war to Crimea just as they have done in Donbass, to kill innocent people just as members of the punitive units of Ukrainian nationalists and Hitler’s accomplices did during the Great Patriotic War. They have also openly laid claim to several other Russian regions.

If we look at the sequence of events and the incoming reports, the showdown between Russia and these forces cannot be avoided. It is only a matter of time. They are getting ready and waiting for the right moment. Moreover, they went as far as aspire to acquire nuclear weapons. We will not let this happen.

I have already said that Russia accepted the new geopolitical reality after the dissolution of the USSR. We have been treating all new post-Soviet states with respect and will continue to act this way. We respect and will respect their sovereignty, as proven by the assistance we provided to Kazakhstan when it faced tragic events and a challenge in terms of its statehood and integrity. However, Russia cannot feel safe, develop, and exist while facing a permanent threat from the territory of today’s Ukraine.

Let me remind you that in 2000–2005 we used our military to push back against terrorists in the Caucasus and stood up for the integrity of our state. We preserved Russia. In 2014, we supported the people of Crimea and Sevastopol.

In 2015, we used our Armed Forces to create a reliable shield that prevented terrorists from Syria from penetrating Russia. This was a matter of defending ourselves. We had no other choice.

The same is happening today. They did not leave us any other option for defending Russia and our people, other than the one we are forced to use today. In these circumstances, we have to take bold and immediate action. The people’s republics of Donbass have asked Russia for help.

In this context, in accordance with Article 51 (Chapter VII) of the UN Charter, with permission of Russia’s Federation Council, and in execution of the treaties of friendship and mutual assistance with the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Lugansk People’s Republic, ratified by the Federal Assembly on February 22, I made a decision to carry out a special military operation.

The purpose of this operation is to protect people who, for eight years now, have been facing humiliation and genocide perpetrated by the Kiev regime. To this end, we will seek to demilitarise and denazify Ukraine, as well as bring to trial those who perpetrated numerous bloody crimes against civilians, including against citizens of the Russian Federation.

It is not our plan to occupy the Ukrainian territory. We do not intend to impose anything on anyone by force. At the same time, we have been hearing an increasing number of statements coming from the West that there is no need any more to abide by the documents setting forth the outcomes of World War II, as signed by the totalitarian Soviet regime. How can we respond to that?

The outcomes of World War II and the sacrifices our people had to make to defeat Nazism are sacred. This does not contradict the high values of human rights and freedoms in the reality that emerged over the post-war decades. This does not mean that nations cannot enjoy the right to self-determination, which is enshrined in Article 1 of the UN Charter.

Let me remind you that the people living in territories which are part of today’s Ukraine were not asked how they want to build their lives when the USSR was created or after World War II. Freedom guides our policy, the freedom to choose independently our future and the future of our children. We believe that all the peoples living in today’s Ukraine, anyone who want to do this, must be able to enjoy this right to make a free choice.

In this context I would like to address the citizens of Ukraine. In 2014, Russia was obliged to protect the people of Crimea and Sevastopol from those who you yourself call “nats.” The people of Crimea and Sevastopol made their choice in favour of being with their historical homeland, Russia, and we supported their choice. As I said, we could not act otherwise.

The current events have nothing to do with a desire to infringe on the interests of Ukraine and the Ukrainian people. They are connected with the defending Russia from those who have taken Ukraine hostage and are trying to use it against our country and our people.

I reiterate: we are acting to defend ourselves from the threats created for us and from a worse peril than what is happening now. I am asking you, however hard this may be, to understand this and to work together with us so as to turn this tragic page as soon as possible and to move forward together, without allowing anyone to interfere in our affairs and our relations but developing them independently, so as to create favourable conditions for overcoming all these problems and to strengthen us from within as a single whole, despite the existence of state borders. I believe in this, in our common future.

I would also like to address the military personnel of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Comrade officers,

Your fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers did not fight the Nazi occupiers and did not defend our common Motherland to allow today’s neo-Nazis to seize power in Ukraine. You swore the oath of allegiance to the Ukrainian people and not to the junta, the people’s adversary which is plundering Ukraine and humiliating the Ukrainian people.

I urge you to refuse to carry out their criminal orders. I urge you to immediately lay down arms and go home. I will explain what this means: the military personnel of the Ukrainian army who do this will be able to freely leave the zone of hostilities and return to their families.

I want to emphasise again that all responsibility for the possible bloodshed will lie fully and wholly with the ruling Ukrainian regime.

I would now like to say something very important for those who may be tempted to interfere in these developments from the outside.

No matter who tries to stand in our way or all the more so create threats for our country and our people, they must know that Russia will respond immediately, and the consequences will be such as you have never seen in your entire history.

No matter how the events unfold, we are ready. All the necessary decisions in this regard have been taken. I hope that my words will be heard.

Citizens of Russia,

The culture and values, experience and traditions of our ancestors invariably provided a powerful underpinning for the wellbeing and the very existence of entire states and nations, their success and viability. Of course, this directly depends on the ability to quickly adapt to constant change, maintain social cohesion, and readiness to consolidate and summon all the available forces in order to move forward.

We always need to be strong, but this strength can take on different forms. The “empire of lies,” which I mentioned in the beginning of my speech, proceeds in its policy primarily from rough, direct force. This is when our saying on being “all brawn and no brains” applies.

We all know that having justice and truth on our side is what makes us truly strong. If this is the case, it would be hard to disagree with the fact that it is our strength and our readiness to fight that are the bedrock of independence and sovereignty and provide the necessary foundation for building a reliable future for your home, your family, and your Motherland.

Dear compatriots,

I am certain that devoted soldiers and officers of Russia’s Armed Forces will perform their duty with professionalism and courage. I have no doubt that the government institutions at all levels and specialists will work effectively to guarantee the stability of our economy, financial system and social wellbeing, and the same applies to corporate executives and the entire business community. I hope that all parliamentary parties and civil society take a consolidated, patriotic position.

At the end of the day, the future of Russia is in the hands of its multi-ethnic people, as has always been the case in our history. This means that the decisions that I made will be executed, that we will achieve the goals we have set, and reliably guarantee the security of our Motherland.

I believe in your support and the invincible force rooted in the love for our Fatherland.

  1. A Magnificent speech by a Magnificent leader. Compare him to any one Western leader and you will be comparing a donkey to a Magnificent Arabian Horse. President Putin is without doubt earned his place amongst the great human beings of all time.

  2. B-R-I-L-L-I-A-N-T !

    Now, what’s next in the game plan ? If the axe of Evil exclude Russia from SWIFT, then Russia could quite well bomb (nuke ?) all of axe of Evil Central Banks…

    • Or bomb only the SWIFT hub which could achieve a HUGE worldwide effect in a proportional fashion way… Aren’t we going in that direction anyway ? The GREAT (Evil) reset…

    • The SWIFT hub is not located at one place, but three. One in USA, one in Switzerland, and one in Brussels. Knocking out one, the other 2 are in play. To impaired the SWIFT network, you need to knock out its sea connecting network altogether. Not an easy task as they are buried and hidden.

  3. War never ends, because one grievance leads to another, and everyone thinks theirs is the most disregarded. War, is the most unfair thing, humans have ever devised.
    As far as I can tell, many humans love to see each other in pieces and are thrilled at the prospect of killing others. We are not sentient.

  4. Among the current world leaders, Vladimir Putin seems to be the only Man with dignity, character, courage and intellect; they rest are either hermaphrodites or nincompoops.

  5. i feel sorrow for the western whatever…
    Not only the ones with nukes but also the others with no Nukes,
    who just opend their pants and showed them their Balls of Steel
    morphed real quick from
    Western Power
    to
    Western Pussy
    Dear God i love you more for this Teather

  6. Sanctions N Siezures !

    gran mal if he grabs Glencore and Kinross// that bodes occupied and reperations..

    i will hav to chek on KRG – but probably a round trip short’ on monday for about 3 trips (B4 7:15)..

    ?? mabey Vlad ‘will issue a few contingency coupon bonds on the stuff he grabs – sell em on a global dealers auction… lets say 6.5% per 25/1000

    Biden was the perfect storm 4Ru to exterminate the NATO Equipped Nazi’s in Uk…

  7. When U.S. and NATO did that, it’s called freedom and democracy. But when Russian did it (within their region most of all), it’s called invasion.

    George Orwell must be proud of those western nations.

  8. It would increase many readers’ respect for you and your intelligence gathering and analysis if you left the “F” word out of the titles of your articles.

    • Darrell, Think ‘Marines’. This is how they talk when angry. One f-bomb is for officers, enlisted will often have 2 in a sentence, and ex-big city gang members (when there used to be white gangs) – 3.

    • @darrell
      Yes, “F” and “brilliant” are opposite. English is not my ‘muttershprache’ and as far as I can understand it is intention to reduce importance of this impeccable speech by half. Looks like oxymoron, a rhetorical device used deliberately by the speaker, and intended to be understood as such by the listener. Anyway ‘abominabla miserabla’.

  9. Russia has Putin and Lavrov, we have assclowns by the dozen. The constant spewing of lies from our vaunted MSM is never tiring to tens of millions of US citizens. Politics is simply too complex for mendacious media to expound on, we are easily the most lie sated people on Earth. Yet, we still cannot prosecute scum like Fauci et al and the rest of the disgusting vermin that infest WEF. One can only marvel at the acumen of Putin. We’ve got Brandon, Moscow has Putin. Politics is too difficult for politicians, time for the laiety to occupy part of our political positions.

    • Where is that little weasel Fauci? Draped in a Ukranian flag? Not likely. He’s not that stupid. So Vlad got all our latest bombs and bullets even though they are junk. It will save him the cost of stealing. Now about what he finds in our outlawed bioweapon labs. That’s the story never to be told to the US chump public. You couldn’t make up a story like this.

  10. The ‘Powers That Be’ Zio-Rothschild International Financial CRIME Syndicate, hate Mr. Putin, since He stopped or at least slowed down the ‘Ripping off the People of Russia’, during the Yeltsin Political chaos in 1989-91! The same, Control Freaks ‘Enemies of Mankind’, have started to put an Economic/Military NOOSE around the neck of Russia, that provoked the current, JUSTIFIED Response, from the Russian Leadership! PRAY for Russia?

  11. Politics is a game of personal and national survival. When both of these merge into one and reflect the real concerns of a whole nation, we have a win-win scenario. This is Putin in Russia. This is not any US president since 1963. The stark contrast would be obvious to a middle school civics student. But not in the US where the truth of world politics is concealed and the masses are too lazy to search. So we get the “leadership” we deserve. Mostly piles of bovine feces.

  12. “To this end, we will seek to demilitarise and denazify Ukraine…”
    Fox News was and still is ridiculing this statement by Mr. Putin. They were saying to the effect that he has lost his mind speaking of Nazis in a country that is run by Jews. They’re probably saying the same thing at CNN.
    Most people in the US and it’s allied nations have not been told by the Judeo/Zionists’ MSM that there are “Nazis” in Ukraine.
    The Azov Battalion was formed in Ukraine after the Maidan Square Western nations’ coup d’état in Kiev in 2014.
    “The Azov Battalion has been described as a far-right militia with connections to neo-Nazism, with members wearing neo-Nazi and SS symbols and regalia…” (Wikipedia)
    It’s interesting to note where the term NAZI came from.
    NAZI— A term created by Konrad Heiden, A Marxist Jew, to ridicule the national socialists in Germany. Today it is used to attack any European who does not hate his race, culture and history, And who wishes to protect and preserve his own people and children’s future. Somebody who opposes Mass Immigration of non-Europeans into his ancestral homeland.
    Konrad Heiden, a German refugee who devoted much of his life to a remorseless journalistic pursuit of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis.
    I read a comment posted on Sputnik News regarding the Azov Battalion which said “Ukraine is ran by jews , Azov Battalion is a jewish organization confirmed by

    • I read a comment posted on Sputnik News regarding the Azov Battalion which said “Ukraine is ran by jews , Azov Battalion is a jewish organization confirmed by one of their leaders and they also get weapons and financial help by Israel and communist countries like Canada.. but the average ignorant idiot speaks about “nazis” 😆
      The Marxist/Zionist Jews like to keep Nazism alive to their benefit (the HOLOCAUST) so they convinced the peon Ukrainians to call themselves NAZIS. Speaking of Nazism is actually helping keep the Marxist/Zionist Jews’ agenda going by keeping Nazism, Hitler, the “Holocaust”, etc., in the forefront to their Judeo-Marxism/Zionism.

  13. “”Incidentally, US politicians, political scientists and journalists write and say that a veritable “empire of lies” has been created inside the United States in recent years””

    Mark 8:14-15
    Beware the leaven of the Pharaisees and of Herod.

    Jesus meant that parable to be taken initially on the individual level.
    But now two thousand years later we see what that malignant leaven has done, not only to the mainline American church, but the entire American culture, with “our” government totally ensnared and bound to its sinister influences and plot to subvert, subjugate and or destroy all “Truth.”

  14. Kudos to Putin with this speech.

    Analyze it, (and everything happened to be 100% true) one understands why he has had enough of Western hypocrisy and unilateralism.

    Somehow no Anglo-Saxon medias publishes his speech transcript for fear that their lies will be exposed to their citizens.

  15. Some of the stupidest comments are coming from the “experts” that the US corporate media are trotting out so as to explain the situation to us rubes. Case in point: Professor Michael McFaul, PhD
    Former United States Ambassador to Russia, refuting Putin’s denazification logic, by declaring it’s ridiculous, because President Zelensky is Ashkenazi, and he was elected. Then, like a parrot, Joe Scarborough makes that a thematic talking point and runs with it.

  16. I repete it again:

    …I think:
    No need to fall in love with Putin
    —————BUT————–
    He is the Man who uses Russian Power = His Power
    to do GOOD not only for Russia but for the World.
    He is the Man who can, and will
    “drain the swamp” this time the Angelozionazi Swamp…

    Yesterday in his Speech he said:
    “The West is an empire of lies”
    this tells me that he is going to dig deep in Ukraine and bring some thruth to the surface for the world…
    did he mean the Bio Labs??? i hope so…
    thats why the West dont sanction him with cutting from swift??? now kissing his Ass not to dig too deep???
    Well i think i need 5 more 6 pack Bear and some popcorn and wait…

    • Putin definitely is sharpest pencil in desk drawer and best tool in the shed. He will drive those American stooges out of Ukraine to San Tropez marina where his giant yacht is docked and finally dispatch them in glorious conquest citizens of Kremlin will sing hymns about for centuries.

      It is obvious to any thinking glorious blue collar worker of no education that Putin is making world better by dropping many bombs on it. Only dummy think otherwise.

  17. Refreshing to see these constructive comments. The VT for your willingness to allow free expression whether they agree or disagree with the official media narrative. Several sites will delete posts or ban anyone not complying with the “Maytag” (brainwash and spin) cycle of the official mockingbird media.

  18. As a long time Putin fan, I read this speech with great satisfaction. The USA has become a nation of lies and criminal actions. Putin is a beacon to truth and hope.

    • Russia’s been incredibly patient after being promised long ago that NATO would not advance “ONE INCH” toward its border.

      And Putin’s been incredibly patient with Israel’s Western colonies. His speech was that of a true statesman. Unfortunately however, Putin avoided the obvious — naming (((who))) calls the shots in the West.

      Could that be because (((they))) also have consider control over Russia?

  19. There can be no doubt that this man is the most measured and temperate figure on the World stage today. But I would hate to be in the shoes of the tribe of Gangsters and Swindlers who have and plundered Ukraine since 2014, he’s just made it crystal clear; the Ruskies are gonna come and getcha!

    • He sent the 12,000 man Chechen assassin squad there for that reason. They’re muslims dedicated to Russia like the Cossacks and have no qualms about slicing the throating of some yarmulke-wearing pedophile and pederast who serves in the IDF.

  20. It doesn’t leave much room for a counter argument unless you happen to be a conceited carpet bagger with a propensity for chutzpah that requires a thick neck to fit an XL-50 shirt collar.

  21. The 2.2.2022 will shurely be a historical date in the future.

    This adress of Vladimir Putin to the Russian Nation might be the speech of the 21. century which leads to profound changes in many countries of this world.

    Clearly, the tide is changing.

  22. Well, No one should be wondering what has been on his mind. He laid it out pretty clearly. As for Western governments, if they wanted to engage, they could start with debating what he said about the moves by the West, were they true or not. We can just image the bruha if Alaska wanted to aline with Russia and then it moved first strike weapons in there. It would be strongly opposed by Washingon. It would take action to prevent. Are we not seeing that happening now with Russia and the NATO grifters?
