President Putin’s speech centred of his intentions of improving the lives of
the Russian people. This was also the topic of half his speech on
March 1st . However, nowhere in these speeches did
President Putin mention that there are nations in the West absolutely
determined to thwart these plans and subvert them at ever turn. They
don’t do this by military means but by economic throttling of
Russian. They are doing this now. The thing is Russia does not just
face the ‘usual’ economic problems but the active obstruction of
Western powers.


Congratulations Mr. President Putin! The video shows that obviously the inauguration happened at 12 p.m. and not 12 a.m. as stated.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
