The collapse of the Soviet Union, according to the dictator, “dismembered the people's community and ruined a great country.” Vladimir Putin noted that Russia allegedly does not seek to return the past.
Russia does not seek the return of the Soviet Union, but the then party elites ruined a great country. This was stated by Russian President Vladimir Putin during the ceremony of signing documents on the “accession” of the temporarily occupied regions of Ukraine. The event was broadcast on YouTube.
“Older generations and youth. Those who were born after the tragedy of the collapse of the Soviet Union voted for our unity, a common future. In 1991, in Belovezhskaya Pushcha, without asking the will of ordinary citizens, representatives of the then party elites adopted decision on the collapse of the USSR. People suddenly found themselves cut off from their homeland,” the Russian dictator said.
According to Putin, the collapse of the USSR “teared and dismembered the people's community and turned into a national catastrophe.” The last leaders of the Soviet Union, according to Putin, contrary to the direct will of the majority of people in the 1991 referendum, destroyed a great country.
“I admit that they did not fully understand what they were doing and what consequences it would lead to. But this It doesn't matter anymore. There is no Soviet Union. The past cannot be returned. Yes, and Russia today does not need it anymore. We are not striving for this,” the President of the Russian Federation said.
Putin added that there is nothing stronger than the determination of millions people who “according to their culture, faith, traditions and language consider themselves part of Russia.”
Focus previously wrote that after the start of a full-scale war in Ukraine, at least 11 influential Russians who criticized Putin died under mysterious circumstances. Among them are 39-year-old Ivan Pechorin and the head of the board of directors of Lukoil, Ravil Maganov.
US President Joe Biden is calling on the leaders of China and India to influence Vladimir Putin so that he does not use nuclear weapons.
