Vladimir Putin’s message to the Federal Assembly promised to be special. The last time the president addressed deputies and senators was almost two years ago. But it is clear that the words of the head of state will be addressed not only to parliamentarians, but to all residents. The Russian leader began his speech by discussing the international situation and the reasons for the special operation.
ON THE PROGRESS OF SVO
– Step by step, we will constantly solve the challenges.
It turns out that all the time when Donbass was on fire, when blood was shed, when Russia honestly, I want to emphasize this! -she sincerely strove for a peaceful solution, they played on people’s lives. They played, in effect, as they say in known circles, with marked cards.
WE ARE AGAINST THE WAR
– I want to repeat it – it was they who unleashed the war. And we have used and continue to use force to stop it.
WE WILL REMOVE THE THREAT
– The responsibility for inciting the Ukrainian conflict, for the escalation, for the increase in the number of its victims falls entirely on the Western elites. And, of course, in the current kyiv regime, to which the Ukrainian people are alien. The Ukrainian regime today does not serve national interests, but the interests of third countries. The West is using Ukraine as a battering ram against Russia and as a training ground. I will not dwell on the West’s attempts to turn the tide of hostilities, but one circumstance should be clear to everyone: the more long-range Western systems reach Ukraine, the more we will be forced to move the threat away from our borders. It’s natural!
THE ANTI-RUSSIA PROJECT IS NOT NEW
– In our time, they began to make “anti-Russia” from Ukraine. The project is not new. It dates back to the 19th century. Austria-Hungary, Poland tried to tear away our historical territories.
– I propose to create a state fund, its task will be to provide personal assistance to the families of servicemen killed in the Northern Military District. Each family should be assigned a personal worker. Already this year, the fund should be deployed in all regions of Russia.
ON FAMILY VALUES
– Look at the writing. Everything is said there: the family is the union of a man and a woman. But even these sacred texts are questioned. The Church of England plans to consider the idea of a gender-neutral god. Forgive me, Lord, they don’t know what they’re doing!
