Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered a speech during the military parade held on Red Square in Moscow, last week, in commemoration of the 77th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, and the following are its main points:-
Russia was calling on the West to have an honest dialogue, but the NATO countries did not want to respond to it, then the alliance began to advance militarily to the regions neighboring Russia, and there were preparations for an attack on the Crimea.
A clash with the neo-Nazis was inevitable, and Russia repelled the aggression with a preemptive action, and that was the only right decision.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the US began to talk about its “uniqueness”, insulting not only the entire world, but also those in its orbit, and they meekly accepted this.
(Russia) is a different country and we will never give up patriotism, faith, traditional values , and respect for all peoples and cultures.
(Addressing American veterans who wanted to attend the parade in Moscow but were refused permission to come) Putin said that he wanted them to know that the Russian people are so proud of their exploits.
“The death of every soldier or officer is a tragedy for all of us and an irreparable loss for their loved ones, and we are doing everything we can to help the families and children of the fallen soldiers,” Putin said.
