The old world is over: Key takeaways from Putin’s first major speech since Russia’s military offensive in Ukraine

Putin Ukraine speech news

Russian leader has buried the old world order and outlined his view on Russia’s and the world’s future, in a key address.

New centres of power have emerged, the unipolar world order isn’t coming back, and the “colonial” way of thinking has failed, Russian President Vladimir Putin told the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) on Friday, in what the Kremlin described as an “extremely important” speech.

The old world order is gone with the wind

When the US declared victory in the Cold War, Americans designated themselves the “messengers of God on earth,” with interests that should be considered sacred and no obligations, Putin told the audience at SPIEF. New centers of power have since emerged, and have the right to protect their own systems, economic models and sovereignty.

These “truly revolutionary, tectonic changes in geopolitics, the global economy, in the technological sphere, in the entire system of international relations,” are “fundamental, pivotal and inexorable,” Putin said. “And It is a mistake to suggest that one can wait out the times of turbulent change and that things will return to normal; that everything will be as it was. It will not.”

Anti-Russian sanctions backfired on the West

When the US and its allies launched the campaign to “cancel” Russia over the conflict in Ukraine, they hoped to crash and undermine the Russian economy and society. The sanctions have instead boomeranged on their creators, aggravating social and economic problems, driving up the cost of food, electricity and fuel, and hurting the quality of life across the West, but especially in Europe.

“The European Union has completely lost its political sovereignty, and its bureaucratic elites are dancing to someone else’s tune, accepting whatever they are told from above, causing harm to their own population and their own economy,” Putin said.

EU citizens will pay the price for “decisions divorced from reality and taken contrary to common sense,” he added, as direct losses from the sanctions alone could exceed $400 billion in a year.

Energy prices and inflation are self-inflicted

Blaming the high energy prices and inflation in the West on Russia – “Putin’s price hike,” as the White House put it – is a “stupidity” and “designed for people who can’t read or write,” the Russian president said.

“Don’t blame us, blame yourselves,” Putin said.

The EU “blindly believing in renewable sources” and abandoning long-term natural gas contracts with Russia led to the spike in energy prices last year, according to the Russian leader. Meanwhile, both the US and the EU addressed the Covid-19 pandemic by printing trillions of dollars and euros.

‘Elite change’ awaits the West

Policies undertaken by EU and US leaders are exacerbating inequalities and divisions in their societies, not just in terms of welfare but in terms of values and orientations of various groups, Putin said.

“Such a detachment from reality, from the demands of society, will inevitably lead to a surge of populism and the growth of radical movements, to serious social and economic changes, to degradation and, in the near future, to a change of elites,” the Russian leader said.

If there’s a famine, it won’t be Russia’s fault

US and EU sanctions against Russia – in particular fertilizer and grain exports – are one of the reasons for growing global food insecurity, Putin pointed out. If there is famine in the world’s poorest countries, “this will be entirely on the conscience of the US administration and the European bureaucracy.”

Troubles with food supply have arisen over the past several years – not months – due to the “short-sighted actions of those who are accustomed to solving their problems at someone else’s expense,” distorting the trade flows by printing money in a sort of “predatory colonial policy,” Putin said.

Russia is ready to send food to Africa and the Middle East, where the threat of famine is most acute, but faces “logistical, financial, transport” obstacles imposed by the West, he said.

Reasons for the Ukraine conflict

Russia sent troops into Ukraine in February because the West refused to abide by its obligations, and it was “simply impossible to reach any new agreements with them,” Putin said. The decision was “forced, but necessary,” as Russia had every right as a sovereign country to defend its security and protect its citizens and residents of Donbass from “genocide by the Kiev regime and neo-Nazis who received the full protection of the West.”

The West spent years turning Ukraine into an “anti-Russia” state and pumping it with weapons and military advisers, Putin said, pointing out they “did not give a damn” about Ukraine’s economy or the lives of its people, but “spared no expense to create a NATO foothold in the east, directed against Russia, to cultivate aggression, hatred and Russophobia.”

“All the objectives of the special military operation will be unconditionally achieved,” Putin said.

Economic development is an expression of sovereignty

In the 21st century, sovereignty can’t be partial, Putin argued. All of its elements are equally important and complement each other, and the economy is one of them. There are five key principles Russia will follow in economic development: Openness, freedom, social justice, infrastructure, and technological sovereignty.

Russia will “never follow the path of self-isolation and autarky,” but will expand interactions with anyone who wishes to trade, Putin said, adding there are “many such countries.” Moscow will also support private enterprise, build and repair its transportation infrastructure, seek to reduce social inequality, and ensure its key technologies are not dependent on foreign imports.

“Truly sovereign states are always committed to equal partnerships,” while “those who are weak and dependent, as a rule, are busy looking for enemies, planting xenophobia, or finally losing their originality, independence, blindly following the overlord,” he said.

  1. Putin is protecting Russia from the WEF / NWO / Globalist from stealing Russia’s political system, her resources, and her wealth.
    The West was, has been, and is now in clear violation of the Minsk Agreement.
    When Russia politely asked the West to abide by the same, the West became militant and arrogant.
    Putin could see the Ukrainian and the West’s plans for Russia’s future based on the past and current actions of the Ukraine’s AZOV Nazi Battalions for the last 8 years and 14,000 dead in the Donbass.
    Many Westerners are now leaving for Russia, sponsored by the Russian Orthodox Church. (Putin has restored the ROC with thousands of new churches being built or restored since 1991).
    Perhaps for the traditional values that Putin has put in place post- communist USSR that was run by Khazarian Zionists J3ws who murdered 60 million Russians, Ukrainians, and the surrounding populations in the smaller states of the time.
    Putin knows the intense damage that the Khazarian Talmudic Mafia has done in the past and what it poses as a threat now and in the future of Russia.! It is important to remember that the present and last Ukrainian Presidents are J3ws that are under the control of the Israeli Intelligence, the Mossad, and their subservient Israeli influenced / blackmailed Western Nations.
    Speaking the Russian language helps immensely if one is planning to leave the Western Nations, so maybe that also explains the shortage of Russian Language Tutors here in New Zealand / Aotearoa.
    The BRIC Nations are becoming exponentially wealthy, and are taking care of it’s citizenry.
    In contrast, the West is looting the banks, retirement funds etc. and they are doing this as a last act before the total collapse that is being branded as the ‘Great Reset’.
    Putin has great support from alternative media, and with good reason! All Putin needs to do is to ease-up on the dissenters who are supporting a bankrupt West, as these upcoming events will prove the dissenters wrong in the end!

  2. No matter what dreadful things they did to the rest of the world, the American people were okay with that while they had cheap oil. Now bad things are happening to them and the rest of the world couldn’t care less. I don’t think the average American is prepared for the level of antagonism they will meet internationally for the foreseeable future.
    The west is using the same tactics that won them WWII – Allied governments prepared to plunder their own people’s treasuries, territories and populations to gang up on one country. They are ‘blindly following the overlord’…as Putin said. (Note well that sentence). They don’t mind if their own people starve, freeze or die. They have provided well for themselves. If they provoke Russia into going nuclear they have bunkers built under government buildings. Cockroaches will survive anything.
    US wants Russian resources so badly you can see the madness in their eyes and the drool when they talk but Russia has been there – under the Bolshevik heel – quite recently and it will never go back. It will keep Crimea and the Donbass and will gain significantly more territory than it actually set out to do – as warmonger Kissinger has warned.

    P.S. There are too many people with American accents in NZ and OZ and they ain’t digging ditches or working as taxi drivers.

    • The U.S. is directly under the influence of Israel (see Re.p Jim Traficant’s YouTube video interviews on Fox News..) and has been since Mayer Rothschild bought in to the London Stock Exchange in the mid 1800’s, and began controlling the money supply on both sides of the Atlantic.
      That influence continues today, and is exponentially expanding via gradualism. At one point, U.S. Senators and Congressmen had to sign a declaration to support Israel, which violated their oath to the U.S. Constitutiomn. That has since stopped due to exposing the same to the U.S. voters and taxpayers.
      It isn’t so much that the U.S. wants Russia’s Banks and Natural Resources, but it’s the J3wish Banksters who run the U.S. and the U.K. via the Mossad blackmailing these nations who are trying to grab Russia, and also Iran, Venezuela and Cuba.
      Any nation that does NOT have the International Banking Cartel running their banks and financial systems are the targets.
      Look at what happened to Moammar Kadafi when he tried to take the Dinar to the gold standard, defying the Banksters.
      Look at that happened to JFK when he tried to return the U.S. Monetary and Banking System back to the U.S. Treasury away from the privately-owned J3wish ‘Federal Reserve Bank’, and put the Gold and Silver Certificates back into circulation until his assassination.
      (see also JFK’s speech on the ‘Repugnancy of Secret Societies’)
      Those American accents you hear are most likely Yanks who have been targeted by the U.S. Government as ‘potential terrorists’ and have probably realised the dangers of the Patriot Act, the NDAA, and the start of the total break-down of American Society perpetrated by the Communist Zionist-controlled ANTIFA, BLM, AIPAC, etc. Add the numerous Alphabet Agencies that have been militarised, and you have the making of ‘Weimerica” or the Weimar Republic reborn that Judea declared war on in the 1920’s.
      The rest is history…and the reasons why many Americans are leaving the U.S. in droves!
      Many of the Yanks who live here are properly married to Kiwis (and not this ‘partner’ crap either’), and are now either Permanent Residents or New Zealand Citizens.
      Only a handful are supposedly ‘rich’, and they have been here for quite a while.
      7,000 of these Yanks living here and in Oz are former Combat Veterans, and they will fight to defend their families, their homes and New Zealand in the event we are invaded.
      You can count of that!!!!
      Several have already put their names forward to the MoD in the event of a national Emergency or Invasion from the north.

    • Many of the dreadful things were hidden from the American People by the J3wish-onwed media.
      Cases in point; the Abu Gharib torture atrocities, on-going torture off of U.S. soil at black sites and Guantanamo, Edward Snowden exposing what the U.S. Government was doing to it’s citizens, and Julian Assange leaking war crimes and murder with the help of Chelsea Manning.

  3. NZ missed a global opportunity by not remaining neutral. West is declining. The future of NZ lies in Eurasia and the East in general. Jacinda, the agent of the NWO, cannot do much other than obeying the orders she received. In a matter of years, NZ will be forced to buy more military hardware because the food produced in NZ will be shifted to the west and we will be given some junk military hardware in return. Our wealth will be further drained keeping a large section of kiwis in a poor condition.

    • Don’t forget – to join the Young Global Leader programme she had to apply to get in. Nobody forced her. What she is doing is done freely and following the WEF programme is what she gladly signed up to do.

    • And now Jabsinda wants to join NATO! Last time I looked, we are in the Pacific and not the North Atlantic.
      SEATO used to exist, but history claimed that ‘alliance’ as well…
      I specifically wrote to several political parties demanding Neutrality and a re-alignment of the NZDF, bit no one answered.
      Any ideas for a petition both on-line and in presenting documents to Parliament?
      Only Sue Grey of the O&FP has presented such documentation, albeit it was with regards to the un-tested bio-weapon known as the Covid-19 vaccine and the associated ‘boosters’ which are also untested!
      & Sue w/ a supporter were rudely treated and constantly interrupted by the Parliamentary Committee. You can see that at the O&FP website…)

  4. A president who is NOT doing everything in his power to actively destroy his own country’s economic interests and plunge its citizens into a depressing and shitty future of debt, poverty, eternal renting and forced vaccination?!

    Yeah, this guy is clearly a madman.

    • Yes, Biden is simply a puppet though. NWO calls for the destruction of middle class. Rich will control everything and we will own nothing and still be happy!
