Warning: this is a 25min long speech followed by over two hours of questions and answers. Still, I would suggest that is is well worth watching because I believe that it really shows the kind of man Putin is and what really makes him “tick”.  If you want to have a really good insight into what the “Eurasian sovereignists” stand for and the kind of international order they are trying to promote – get it directly from primary source: Putin himself.  His answers are all non-scripted, the questions non-rehearsed and all the topics are discussed in an extremely candid manner.  I highly recommend listening to the full thing.

Cheers,

The Saker
