“Ukraine Is A Training Ground For The West, They Started The War” – Putin Says

On Tuesday, February 21, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin promised to continue his country’s year-long war in Ukraine, accusing the US-led NATO alliance of beginning the crisis with the conviction that it could beat Moscow in a global struggle.

Russia attacked Ukraine on February 24, 2022, claiming to be ridding the Volodymyr Zelensky dictatorship of neo-nazis, a claim Ukraine and the West have denied.

The West and Ukraine argue that NATO’s eastward expansion is no justification for what they call Russia’s “imperial-style territory grab that is certain to fail.”


Putin, 70, says Russia is engaged in a “existential fight with an arrogant West that wants to split up Russia and grab its huge natural riches.”

On Tuesday, February 21, Putin informed Russia’s political and military elite, flanked by four Russian tricolor flags, that Moscow would “carefully and consistently resolve the tasks before us.”

Putin stated that Moscow had done all possible to avoid conflict, but that Western-backed Ukraine was contemplating an attack on Russian-controlled Crimea, which Russia annexed in 2014.

Putin claimed that the West had let the genie out of the bottle in a number of locations around the world by spreading chaos and bloodshed.


“The people of Ukraine have become the hostage of the Kyiv regime and its Western overlords, who have effectively occupied this country in the political, military and economic sense,” Putin said.

“They intend to translate the local conflict into a global confrontation, we understand it this way and will react accordingly,” Putin said.

He claimed that defeating Russia was unachievable, and that his country would never bow to Western attempts to fracture its population since the’majority of Russians backed the fight.’

He asked the audience, which included MPs, troops, spy chiefs, and state firm executives, to rise in memory of those who died in the conflict. He pledged to establish a specific fund for the families of those murdered in the fight.

His remark comes after US Vice President Joe Biden visited Kyiv on Monday, one year after the Russian invasion.
