Russia will not abandon Donbass
“We have a huge responsibility on our shoulders for Russia as a whole. And before making any decision, you need to think about the consequences of any of our steps,” Putin said. “We will not abandon Donbass, no matter what,” he assured.
Russia is getting stronger, and the more they try to restrain it
“As soon as we began to stabilize, to get up on our feet – that’s all, then the policy of containment began immediately,” the president said. “And the stronger we got, the stronger this policy of containment is being pursued,” he stressed.
Power-hungry people are being used to contain Russia
Opponents or potential adversaries from time immemorial relied on very ambitious, power-hungry people and always used them – in their own interests, Putin noted. “We do not see anything new here … There is a lot of ambition, a lot of energy, the desire to earn more money, to break through to power are obvious. And all this is simply used in the most active way,” he said.
The President noted the growing influence of Russia in the post-Soviet space. “And this, too, will be something from which we will be dragged away. And these people will certainly be used for the same purposes,” he warned.
Russia’s achievements annoy opponents
“Taking into account the fact that our scientists have invented a vaccine, this is not the only achievement, we have many achievements and this is already beginning to annoy … Hence the policy of containment, including in the economy,” Putin stressed.
At first, the West thought of the new modern types of weapons that are being put into service in the Russian armed forces as fake, and now they believe that new models of Russian weapons should be included in negotiations on curbing the arms race.
Unauthorized shares were triggered by deteriorating quality of life due to pandemic
“Regarding the fact that people went out to protests, including not because of this person involved. Yes, you are probably right, it is,” Putin said. But after all, this “figurant” is also used right now, when in all countries, including Russia, people experience fatigue, accumulated irritation, discontent, including the level of their incomes.
“Say what you like: a pandemic, not a pandemic, now life has become worse … Who is to blame? The bosses. Well, this is the share of the bosses, there’s nothing you can do about it … And, of course, they are trying to use this both in Europe and in others countries, and in the States themselves, all sorts of opposing forces. And we also try to take advantage of this, and took advantage of … This is the calculation, “- the president explained.
Power will accelerate the pace of development of the country
“At first there was a calculation that we would not be able to do anything with this coronavirus at all … We proceeded from the fact that we are worthless and there is no way to call us, and we will not be able to do anything. But we could. And better than other countries, “the president stressed.
“But, nevertheless, irritation is accumulating, there are many problems, there is not enough money … Therefore, you can understand people,” Putin said, adding that the authorities must be patient, work rhythmically, not flood problems with money, but work on a regular basis – “based on common sense and economic feasibility.”
People evaluate their lives not by what happened yesterday or 10 years ago, but by what they want it to be tomorrow, the president said. The authorities must understand this and accelerate the pace of development – which will be done within the framework of national projects.
Healthcare mobilization in Russia is incomparably higher than in the West
Putin cited the most objective indicator – the number of cases per hundred thousand of the population. There are 12 people in Russia, there are still 45. There are 20 times more personal protective equipment produced in our country than at the beginning of the epidemic. “The mobilization of the entire healthcare system and industry turned out to be simply incomparably higher than in European countries and the States. There is just such a collapse there,” the president said.
The West has a high level of health care and industry, remarkable achievements – but all this is “for a certain public”, and in Russia – for the vast majority of citizens, Putin said. “And they do not have the ability to mobilize, as it turned out. Ours is better,” he compared.
Agrarians made a breakthrough
“We are proud of the farmers, they have achieved outstanding results,” the president said and reminded that this is a merit of the authorities. “All this was done, including with the direct support of the state, even when we and your humble servant were baptized for nothing and said that all this was in a black hole, all this is in vain, we will never have anything … By the way, this is along with the vaccine, there is also a direction where we have made an obvious breakthrough, “Putin said. The President explained that he considers it wrong to subsidize grain exports when prices rise on the world market and compared it with the “black gold” market. “Prices on the world market have risen, oilmen tell me:“ We must sell internally at the same prices, because we have losses. ”What are the losses? Lost excess profits – yes, have losses got to do with it?” he remarked.
Foreign Internet Giants May Be Restricted by Hostile Actions in Russia
“For example, I have no desire to screw and twist something artificially there. But when some hostile actions are carried out, I do not rule out this. Hostile actions against our country are unacceptable,” Putin stressed. Russia creates its own alternatives, and when foreign Internet giants realize that they have no monopoly, they will behave differently.
“We will not do anything that would create problems for our citizens and users just artificially, because we do not like them or wrote something bad about some bosses – no, of course, but on some overt attacks, of course , we will not be able not to react, “the president said.
Russia has an endless genetic code
“I believe in passionarity, in the theory of passionarity … Russia has not reached its peak. We are on the march, on the march of development,” the president is convinced. “The feeling of patriotism, love for the Motherland and Fatherland is the core of our future,” he said. “Because if you do not love your Fatherland, treat this with a disregard, disdain, do not care about your history, about your old people, in whom we are reflected in reality, to disparage them and their achievements, it means not to believe in the future either. I am absolutely convinced of this, there is, “Putin said.
Unlike other old or rapidly aging nations, “we are a fairly young nation,” the president said. “We have an infinite genetic code. It is based on the mixing of blood,” he explained. And it is important to maintain interethnic and inter-confessional unity, respecting everyone. “So that everyone who lives here feels that this is their homeland, even being a representative of the smallest nation. Therefore, all this can be united in one word – patriotism,” Putin concluded.
