'It’s they who have started the war and we are using force to end it' VladimirPutin

Russian President Vladimir Putin railed against the West in his long-delayed state-of-the-nation address – blaming it for his attacks on Ukraine.

While the Constitution says the president should deliver the speech annually, Putin never gave one in 2022 as his troops rolled into Ukraine and suffered repeated setbacks. Citing another justification he has used for the war, Putin claimed his forces are protecting civilians in regions of Ukraine that Moscow has since illegally annexed.

The Kremlin this year barred media from “unfriendly” countries, including the US, UK and those in the EU. Mr Peskov said journalists from those nations would be able to cover the speech by watching the broadcast.

Putin promises to 'systematically' continue Ukraine offensive in state-of-the-nation speechRussian President Vladimir Putin has vowed to “systematically” press on with Moscow’s offensive in Ukraine in a state-of-the-nation address this morning while accusing the West of escalating the conflict He is not wrong, west has only escalated, not efforts to de-escalate whatsoever. The breadbasket of Europe has become another Vietnam when Ukraine was not belonging to NATO. The V.P. only said it should be. A bit like the Russians and Eire talking about building Silos in Eire. And we are worried about what Putin thinks! US are protecting interest and corruption
