Russian President Vladimir Putin speaking to political scholars known as the Valdai Club blamed the West for instigating the Ukrainian Crisis. He went on to deny that any Russian troops ever crossed over into Ukrainian territory. Putin did go on to say that Russia did assist former Ukrainian President Yanukovych escape from Kiev after the city fell into the hands of crazed murderous mobs. He stated that the mobs were instigated by the United States who are trying to change the world order. He went on to say that any help that was given to the Russian speaking Eastern Ukrainians was done so to help them fight off the murderous mobs who were trying to kill them.
Putin did go on to say that he was going to pull back some 17,000 troops from the Ukrainian border. He said the cease fire being honored by the heroes of the Eastern Ukraine have been able to restore some sort of order after the devastation that was brought on by the Kiev traitors.
Putin has brought the world back to those dark days of the Cold War. What is increasingly worrisome is that he has a problem of actually telling the truth. He has put the world precariously close to a Third World War. Putin is the reason that the Ukrainian crisis ever happened. His paranoia of the West is leading the world into uncertain times. When Yanukovych was going to sign a trade agreement with the European Union he became enraged. He was able to talk Yanukovych out of signing but he couldn’t stop the citizens of Western Ukraine from rising up. The Western Ukraine simply wanted to be free from living under Russia’s thumb. Putin couldn’t allow that. He is trying to build another Russian empire and will do anything to accomplish it. He has stated to many about Russia’s nuclear capabilities and how he is not afraid to use them. He has talked of breaking apart the Ukraine and splitting it with Poland. Putin is one slick firmer KGB stooge who is doing nothing more than taking Russia back to its Soviet Union glory days.
Putin has stated that he is not going to beg the West to remove the sanctions. Unfortunately with winter coming he has put many in dire straits of surviving it. His reckless behavior is now going to try and disrupt a neighboring country’s elections. The Ukraine is going to have parliamentary elections on October 26th and he is intending to disrupt them through the rebels of Eastern Ukraine. Putin’s actions are no better than a criminal and it is time for the West to take this madman seriously. Sanctions are not going to stop him. Putin is a war criminal and should be tried as such. He is to blame for some 3,700 deaths and almost a million refugees fleeing the bloodshed of the Eastern Ukrainian atrocities. There should be no more attempts of talks with Vladimir Putin as he has no interest in keeping any of his agreements. Putin must be stopped at any cost.
