Putin lied and you hung onto every word
Only things I've heard about Putin's speech are what was presented in US media. It would not surprise me at all if it was quite a bit different that whatever limited parts of is get reported here.
You have to go to YouTube or better yet Rumble to get alternative reporting. YouTube censors but Rumble does not. The people whose channel I follow regarding Ukraine are Clayton and Natalie Morris (redacted), Jackson Hinkle (The Dive), Mike Jones (iEarlGrey) and I have just started following Colonel Douglas MacGregor). MacGregor is good for military assessments.
Russia is lucky to have Putin as their leader.
Not being a politician can be viewed in Putin's favour.
What other leader could do judo and ice-hockey, deep into his fifties ?
