Putin did not provide any assessment of progress in the war on Victory day speech
As the whole world was waiting for any serious declaration or announcement about the ongoing war, Putin did say anything about the upcoming Russian strategy in a speech on Monday marking the Victory Day Parade in Moscow’s Red Square, the 77th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany in World War II.
But what he said is also very important for his so-called opponents, Let’s see the highlights of his speech
- ‘’What we did in Ukraine was necessary for our country’s security” Moscow’s invasion was a preemptive move to ward off aggression from the West.
- Russian troops in eastern Ukraine are fighting for “the Motherland” as the Kremlin presses on with its offensive in the Donbas.
- Putin mirrored this war like World War II against the Nazis.
- You are fighting for our people in the Donbas, for the security of our motherland,” Putin had said, according to a translation provided by the Financial Times.
- NATO didn’t listen to us, they were preparing to attack Crimea….Russia attacked preemptively against aggression,” Putin said.
- After the decline of the Soviet Union, America and NATO always tried to destabilize Russia but we are another type of country, and the victory day is one of the biggest examples of it because we always fight for our Nation.
