In a long speech on Thursday, in front of the Valdaï Discussion Club, in Moscow, Russia, President Vladimir Putin explained that the world will know its most dangerous decade since World War II. He added: " The historical period of the West’s undivided dominance over world affairs is ending. "
The ex-KGB spy said that the West was playing a " dangerous, bloody and dirty " game regarding Ukraine's support. According to Putin, Western nations want to lead the world by controlling countries’ actions. He also stated that the war in Ukraine is happening because the Western leaders incited it.
The Russian President sees " no need for " the use of tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine. " There is no point in that, neither political nor military, " The 70-year-old President added. He said that he never had the intention of using them. The United States of America’s President, Joe Biden, reacted to this statement made by Putin in an interview: " If he has no intention, why does he keep talking about it? " " He’s been very dangerous in how he’s approached this. He can end this all, get out of Ukraine," he added.
The Russian leader continued to claim that Kyiv is preparing to use a " dirty bomb " on Russia but still without any evidence. " [Ukraine] is doing everything to cover up traces of this preparation. " Putin stated. During his speech, he requested that the International Atomic Energy Agency goes to Ukraine " as fast as possible " to check on their nuclear sites. The IAEA answered that from this week, inspectors would check if any dirty bomb production is ongoing in Ukraine.
The war in Ukraine " will be good for Russia and its future " and will " strengthen our sovereignty in every way, and this case the economic sphere. " Putin said. Regarding Russia’s future, Putin added: " The West can do whatever they want with gay parades, but they shouldn’t dictate the same rules for Russia. "
He also said that Russia wasn’t the country that was on the offense: " Russia is not challenging the elites of the West. Russia is just trying to defend its right to exist. " Putin stated that the United States of America and the West elites want to remove Russia from the world map. One of the reasons is that they are giving weapons to Ukraine to fight against Russian soldiers.
During his long speech, Putin stated that the Western countries would need to discuss with Russia what will be the world’s future. Regarding the United States, Putin said: « [In the US], there’s a very substantial part of the public who maintain traditional values, and they’re with us. We know about this. »
