Vladimir Putin has issued an unprecedented warning to the West and oligarchs, telling all “traitors” he will “spit them out like a midge.”
The Russian President’s speech was passionate. His claims that Western nations would use “those who earn their money here, but live over there” to divide society have me concerned for the future of our world as we know it!
Putin went on to say: “I do not judge those with villas in Miami or the French Riviera. Or who can’t get by without oysters or foie gras or so-called ‘gender freedoms.The problem is they mentally exist there, and not here, with our people, with Russia. The West will try to bet on the so-called fifth column, on traitors … to divide our society. To provoke civil confrontation … to strive to achieve its aim. And there is one aim – the destruction of Russia.”
He insisted the military operation was going to plan in Ukraine, despite his troops being held off outside of Kyiv.
Putin went on to claim the West has been attempting to have “global dominance” and have been using the conflict to impose tough sanctions because “they just don’t want a strong and sovereign Russia. Any people, and especially the Russian people, will always be able to distinguish the true patriots from the scum and the traitors, and just to spit them out like a midge that accidentally flew into their mouths.”
It’s anyone’s guess whether Vladimir Putin will succeed in his unprovoked war against Ukraine but his provocation of Europe and the West could very well be more than he can handle.
