A year is about to be left behind in the Russia-Ukraine war that started on February 24, 2022. After US President Joe Biden's "surprise visit" to Kyiv, it was turned into the destination of Russian leader Vladimir Putin. The Russian leader is giving a speech today in the capital Moscow to members of parliament, commanders and troops. Putin's expected statements also carry the boundaries of "addressing the nation".
Russian President Vladimir Putin's speech started at 12:00 CEST. "Russia is not at war with the Ukrainian people, who are the hostage of the Kyiv administration," Putin said. Putin also said that it is impossible for Russia to be defeated on the battlefield.
Here are the headlines from the statements of Russian President Vladimir Putin;
"No country in the world has as many soldiers as the USA has abroad"
"The more long-range weapons the West sends, the more we will have to remove these attacks from our borders."
"Family means unity between a man and a woman. The scriptures of every religion he lives in testify to this. But the West doubts these scriptures. We must and will protect our children from corruption."
"Russia strengthened after reunification with Donbass"
