Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, stated that Moscow’s military intervention in Ukraine is an existential struggle against Western aspirations to destroy his nation. It is anticipated that Vladimir Putin, who has been in office for more than 20 years and is the longest-serving Russian leader since Soviet tyrant Josef Stalin, would shortly announce his intention to run for a second six-year term.
“We are defending the security and well-being of our people, the highest, historical right to be Russia — a strong, independent power, a country-civilization,” Vladimir Putin averred.
“We are now fighting for the freedom of not only Russia, but the whole world,” he declared while criticizing what he called Western “Russophobia” in a speech to attendees of a conference held by the Russian Orthodox Church. “our diversity and unity of cultures, traditions, languages, and ethnic groups simply don’t fit into the logic of Western racists and colonialists, into their cruel scheme of total depersonalization, disunity, suppression and exploitation.”
“If they can’t do it by force, they will try to sow strife,” he stated adding “any outside interference, provocations with the aim of causing interethnic or interreligious conflicts as aggressive actions against our country, as an attempt to once again foment terrorism and extremism in Russia as a tool to fight us.”
Vladimir Putin said that the US-dominated global order has become increasingly decrepit.
“It is our country that is now at the forefront of creating a more equitable world order,” he said, adding, “And I want to emphasize: without a sovereign, strong Russia, no lasting, stable world order is possible.”
