Russia’s bloodthirsty, greedy dictator Vladimir Putin announced the annexation of four Ukrainian regions the size of the state of Kentucky.
This comes in an attempt to force his own population to die more readily as cannon fodder for “Mother Russia,” rather than foreign territories in his evil war of conquest.
Giant Land Theft After Sham Referendums
Putin began the invasion of Ukraine on February 24 and was expecting to overwhelm it with 200,000 troops in three days.
The ferocious defense of the courageous Ukrainians, along with American and other western military supplies to Ukraine, however, prevented Putin’s evil plan, causing tremendous losses to the Russian military.
Putin’s move to annex Russian-occupied regions in southeast and southern Ukraine – namely the regions of Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson – comes after, last week, he announced a mass-scale mobilization.
None of the four regions in question is under full Russian occupation. Ukrainian defenders are rapidly advancing in the Donbas region in southeast Ukraine, which includes the administrative regions of Luhansk and Donetsk.
The annexation comes after over the past week, Russia’s occupation forces held sham referendums, claiming almost 100% of their population wants to join Putin’s anti-utopian paradise voluntarily.

Putin Vows to ‘Smash’ the West
In a fiery anti-western speech on Friday, Putin declared the annexation of the Ukrainian territories with a combined territory of about 40,000 square miles, while also threatening to “smash” the West, as cited by The Daily Mail.
Before a select audience of his top cronies at the Kremlin, the Russian despot lied that “millions” of Ukrainians voted to join Russia in its sham referendums. These were carried out with heavily armed troops going to people’s homes, evicting those refusing to become Russians.
In one of his blistering lies, Putin argued these have now become “our people forever.” He was joined at the ceremony by the collaborator leaders of the illegal Russian administrations of the four partly occupied Ukrainian regions.
Putin’s speech included a vicious anti-western tirade, in which he accused America and other western nations of being “satanists,” while also promising to “smash” western hegemony.
The increasingly mentally unstable dictator also claimed for Russia some imaginary mission and “destiny” to liberate the world – which is a euphemism for Russian enslavement of whoever Moscow can reach and enslave.
Roughly at the time of Putin’s evil annexation speech, Ukrainian defenders encircled a large contingent of Russian troops in the town of Lyman in the Luhansk region and were about to liberate it.
Meanwhile, the great “humanitarian” regime of the Russian dictator fired 16 S-300 missiles upon Ukrainian cities. While most were shot down by the Ukrainians, four hit a humanitarian convoy in the city of Zaporizhzhia, killing a total of 25 people and wounding at least 50 others.
The convoy was headed to occupied parts of the region in order to bring food and medical supplies to those wretched enough to have fallen in the hands of Putin’s “paradise.”
Putin’s entire annexation speech is one long anti-Western rant: he raves about colonisation, racism, Russophobia, dictatorship, hypocrisy. The ultimate post-Soviet taxi driver pic.twitter.com/Rv2vaGsyO5
