Pointed Warnings from Vladimir Putin
Whatever one might think of Vladimir Putin and his policies, we recommend that all concerned citizens read the speech he gave on Sept. 30, upon the accession of the four Ukrainian regions to the Russia, to better understand how the Russians view the current crisis, why the world has now so moved so close to a world war, and what they see as a positive path forward.
He accused the United States of spinning a web of lies about Russia: “The truth has been drowned in an ocean of myths, illusions and fakes, using extremely aggressive propaganda, lying like Goebbels. The more unbelievable the lie, the quicker people will believe it — that is how they operate, according to this principle.
Against the western financial casino: “But people cannot be fed with printed dollars and euros. You can’t feed them with those pieces of paper, and the virtual, inflated capitalization of Western social media companies can’t heat their homes…. You can’t feed anyone with paper — you need food; and you can’t heat anyone’s home with these inflated capitalizations — you need energy.”
“That is why politicians in Europe have to convince their fellow citizens to eat less, take a shower less often and dress warmer at home. And those who start asking fair questions like ‘Why is that, in fact?’ are immediately declared enemies, extremists and radicals.”
On the attitude of Washington toward Europe: European politicians “clearly understand that by pressuring the EU to completely give up Russian energy and other resources, the United States is practically pushing Europe toward deindustrialisation in a bid to get its hands on the entire European market. These European elites understand everything—they do, but they prefer to serve the interests of others.”
Putin is convinced that the West “is ready to cross every line to preserve the neo-colonial system which allows it to live off the world, to plunder it thanks to the domination of the dollar and technology”. And if Russia is defeated and dismembered, “I believe next in line are other countries of Asia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, as well as current U.S. partners and allies.”
