Putin Threatens and Mocks West As He Adds Four Ukrainian Territories to Russia

Speaking on Friday, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that Russia is annexing four territories in Ukraine.

He gave the speech to parliamentarians, government officials, and religious authorities in which he said Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson will become part of Russia.

In his speech, Putin also slammed the West and the United States, saying they are ruled by “satanic” forces and are evil, “imperialist” powers who want to destroy Russia.

Putin Slams ‘Satanic’ West

The Russian leader announced the annexation of these four regions into the Russian Federation, with the presence of representatives of the four Ukrainian territories also present.

Putin said Americans and western powers are engaged in a plot to systematically destroy Russia because it won’t conform to their cultural values and leftism.

He said the West has been taken over by “satanic” powers who try to change children’s genders and corrupt the family and Christianity.

Putin claimed the US and West have been backing Ukraine as part of a plot to weaken and undermine Russia and this will no longer be tolerated. He also said the West should not underestimate Russia, nor what it is capable of.

This comes on the heels of recent threats from Putin that he is “not bluffing” about using all measures available if Ukraine or the West tries to recapture the four annexed territories.

Putin Labels West as ‘Russophobic’

Putin’s complaints about the West are becoming increasingly extensive. For Putin, the West is a traitor which can’t be trusted and is hypocritical.

He urged the West to shut its mouth about democracy since it is an imperialist, warmongering bloc of powers worsening starvation and food shortages around the world.

The Kremlin chief also accused the West of being racist towards the Russians, claiming it was “Russophobia,” motivating much western opposition to Russia.

His speech has been called the most “anti-American” that he’s ever given; as losses for Russia mount in Ukraine, it’s clear Putin’s anger is reaching a fever pitch.

Putin also accused the U.S. of being behind the recent sabotage of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines that connect the EU to Russian gas.

The Bottom Line

When Putin points out the food shortages being caused by the Ukraine war and the western backing of Ukraine, he seems to forget that he’s the one who invaded.

Nonetheless, he’s completely correct about the strange far-left ideology that’s gaining ground in the West. This brings up a crucial issue.

Woke ideology is not just ridiculous or offensive or controversial; it’s a national security threat.

When you allow crazy people to start changing the definition of gender, family, and basic values of a society, you give leverage to foreign leaders and dictators using it for increasing polarization and opposition to your society.
