Putin says he will meet his ‘noble’ goals

The Russian President, Vladimir Putinhas been convinced this Tuesday that his troops will achieve the objectives in the war in Ukraine, which he has described as “noble” and that he has specified in protecting the inhabitants of the donbas (this) of an alleged threat of “genocide”.

“That’s how it will be. There is no doubt. The goals are totally clear and noblePutin said during a visit to the Russian Vostochny Cosmodrome with Belarusian President Alexandr Lukashenko.

The main goal is to help the people of Donbaswhich we recognized and which we were forced to defend, because the kyiv authorities, pushed by the West, refused to comply with the Minsk Agreements aimed at a peaceful solution of the problems”, he added.

Putin has acknowledged that what is happening in Ukraine is “tragic” but has assured that Russia “had no choice”. In addition, he has assured that “the military operation” is going “as planned”.

Inevitable clash with Ukraine

Putin has stated that the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky“does not like” any clause of the Minsk Agreements, while “other officials stated that their implementation is impossible.”

“They publicly rejected it. Well, just it was impossible to continue tolerating this genocide that lasted eight years” in reference to the beginning, in 2014, of the civil war in Ukraine due to the attempt of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions to become independent.

Given this position, the clash “with the anti-Russian forces” that had emerged in Ukraine was inevitable and a matter of time, according to Putin.

They began to turn Ukraine into an anti-Russian parade ground they began to cultivate the shoots of nationalism and neo-Nazism that existed long ago,” the Russian president stressed. “This is an obvious fact. Unfortunately neo-Nazism has become a fact of life in a fairly large country near us. This is something obvious: it was inevitable, it was only a matter of time, “he added.

Talks with Ukraine “at a dead end”

Vladimir Putin has said that Ukraine has deviated from the agreements reached at the Istanbul peace conference and that the conversations are “In a dead end”, according to the Interfax news agency. According to Putin, the “lack of coherence” of the Ukrainians prevents reaching an agreement.

On the other hand, the president has stated that the Bucha massacre, allegedly carried out by Kremlin troops “it’s a fake”. Likewise, he has recalled the alleged chemical arsenal of Iraq that served as a pretext in 2003 for the US invasion. “Bucha is just as false,” the Russian leader has said.

“It is impossible to isolate Russia”

Putin has also assured that the sanctions will not succeed in isolating Russia, and compares it to what was happening in the USSR. “The sanctions were total, the isolation complete, but the Soviet Union was still the first in space,” he said, on the day the launch of the first cosmonaut, the Russian Yuri Gagarin, is celebrated.

“We don’t want to be isolated. It is impossible to severely isolate anyone in the modern worldespecially to a country as big as Russia,” he insisted.

Almost 2,000 civilians have been killed and more than 4.6 million have fled the country, according to the UN, since the start of the war in Ukraine on February 24. In response to the invasion, both the European Union (EU) and the United States and other countries have imposed sanctions that, among other measures, have frozen Russian assets abroad and disconnected some Russian banks from the SWIFT global payment system.

Ukraine affirms that the negotiation continues “despite being very difficult”

In response to the Russian president’s statements about the talks with Ukraine, President Zelensky’s adviser, Mykhailo Podoliak, admitted that negotiations with Moscow are extremely difficult. Despite this, he has said that the negotiation continues to take place in working groups.

“The negotiations are extremely difficult and the emotional background on days like today it is very complex,” Podoliak said in statements to the portal Ukrainska Pravda.

Podoliak has also made reference to “Russian traditional tactics” of exerting pressure on the negotiation processes with “certain public statements”.
