Putin to the West: ‘Our weapons can reach you too’

“We too have weapons capable of reaching your territories.” President Vladimir Putin said this while addressing the West.

“They tried to fight Russia in the past, but now the consequences will be very bad,” Putin added, saying that it was, however, “nonsense” to say that Moscow wants to attack Europe.

“Everything the West is devising really leads to the threat of a conflict with nuclear weapons and therefore the annihilation of civilization,” he added, accusing the West of “trying to drag” Moscow “into an arms race” that worn out. “We understand that the West is trying to drag us into an arms race, wearing us out and repeating the trick that they managed in the 1980s with the Soviet Union.”

NATO countries that decide to send troops to Ukraine will suffer “tragic” consequences, the Russian president said. “They started – said Putin – to talk about the possibility of sending NATO military contingents to Ukraine. Let us remember the fate of those who in the past sent their contingents to the territory of our country. Now the consequences for possible interventionists will be much more tragic.”

Putin assured that Russian troops in Ukraine will achieve victory and will never retreat. “Members of the armed forces will not retreat, they will not fail, they will not betray,” the Russian president said at the conclusion of his annual address to the nation.

In the conflict in Ukraine, Russian forces used two types of hypersonic missiles: the Kinzhal, launched from aircraft, and the Zirkon, launched from ships. Vladimir Putin said this in his speech to the assembled Houses of Parliament, adding that “the whole country” supports the Russian soldiers involved in the military operation in Ukraine and that united “we can overcome anything”.

Pe, ‘Putin criminally responsible for Navalny’s death’

Vladimir Putin personally bears criminal and political responsibility for the death of his strongest opponent: Alexei Navalny. The European Chamber says so in a resolution approved with 506 votes in favour, 9 against and 32 abstentions. The Russian people, however, should not be confused with the “warmongering, autocratic and kleptocratic regime of the Kremlin”, the text explains. MEPs call on Member States to step up their efforts to find possible ways to free those suffering from detention and repression, including the option of possible prisoner exchanges.
