Vladimir Putin Press Conference – Astana Kazakhstan – October 14, 2022 – English Subtitles
The Essential Saker IV: Messianic Narcissism's Agony by a Thousand Cuts
The Essential Saker III: Chronicling The Tragedy, Farce And Collapse of the Empire in the Era of Mr MAGA
Can you envision any other leader taking these kinds of detailed questions and answering so directly and with such composure?
The range of questions was comprehensive.
And the answers were to the point:
“As for the ideas that guide the leaders of the different states, this is their own business. I have set forth my version.”
Thank you for the subtitles.
Absolutely spot on – when you watch his speeches, I am struck by how capable a stateman he is.
I thought the same thing. Hard questions. Direct answers. I sure hope NATO heeds the answer to the last question. Any troops on the ground in Ukraine would be disastrous for them. They know it too, because from the very beginning they (US) stated unequivocally there would be none.
Most important topic: @ 27:45
“Do you think Ukraine will be able to exist as a state after all of this?”
Then, “You don’t regret anything, do you?”
Putin explains he had to act in timely fashion or it would have been worse for Russia and Donbass if he didn’t send in the SMO in February.
The question about Ukraine is repeated for him to answer. Watch his affect, his droll poker face, as he replies.
Read the man and know that the continuity of the Ukrainian state is off the table. It is a matter of security for Russia, for Crimean water supply, for the safety of the Kerch Bridge, for a normal life for Russians.
Twas delightfully trolling
Questions asked by Boxer
forward hunched rolling
Cro-Magnon eyebrows rocker
MbZ down street jacket, strolling
presavoring morsels from Daddy
Putin, stony faced chaste
roiled subtle mirth, trolling
content Cabal justice did taste
Long denied by evil, ever boiling
indulgent Parent of cheeky Boxer
Very impressive press conference.
Putin was cool, convincing, and engaged with the newspeople there.
I too watched his body language and facial expression and have come away convinced he is one of the best world leaders alive today.
The questioners were just as impressive. Unafraid to ask the tough questions and still remained respectful and engaged.
Night and day difference with western media.
I also noted that when he speaks of growing partnerships with central Asian countries, the prospect makes him happy. He wants this for everyone. One does not often see him smile.
Biden v Putin
Chalk and Cheese – Shit and Shinola
The former, a ghostly apparition, physically and mentally challenged, permanently dragging a ball and chain around with him.
In 2007/8 Joe Biden was pinpointed as the person who would give Deep State’s own pick Barry Obama, the most trouble (a hard time, remember, Obama sprung up as quickly as the Trab Spring) and to keep a certain section of the Democratic power structure/base happy, Joe’s made VP. Safe hands Joe will see the resident Obama doesn’t go of the reservation. Come-on, CIA Obama was the thinking ventriloquist’s dummy! Joe was showing signs of early-stage dementia even back then. 50 years. a career politician, knowing where the bodies are buried, where personal family tragedies took their toll. Where do you put someone with Joe’s credentials 15 years later when he’s complete bananas, yep, The Oval Office.
The marked contrast with the President of Russia is evident as question after question is fielded assuredly by a man at the top of his game. Still, and not taking anything away from him, he’s always, no matter the occasion, the smartest person in the room. Having to deal with morons from Outerspace (Westside), doesn’t seem to have blunted Putin’s enthusiasm.
I believe the original plan was that Obama would be assassinated to put the unelectable puppet Biden in office, while Hillary actually ran the show from State, but Obama proved such a good figurehead that this plan was shelved. Of course, we all know what happened in the 2020 election… now we’ve got not only a criminal puppet but an empty suit.
I was reminded watching this that Putin holds a law degree, and plainly knows the value of the rule of law.
I noticed he referred to Germany as a Partner ,obviously he is leaving a door open here Subtle too.
A great set of answers to sometimes awkward questions from a brilliant man.
RAND estimated the Germans would lose as much as $9 trillion in the end when gas bill has to be paid. That is $100,000 per German, or $400.000 per German family.
Of course attitude to US will be more and more hostile among Germans.
– The sabotage of NS and NS2 is inbuilt in the imperial wet dream of breaking up the Eurasian land mass into a thousand pieces to prevent a trans-Eurasia consolidation between Germany (representing the EU), Russia and China: $50 trillion in GDP, based on purchasing power parity (PPP) compared to the US’s $20 trillion.
The sabotage is more likely an attack on Germany, rather than Russia. If Germany is a deadly enemy of US, then Germany is an ally of Russia
I sure hope Germany recognizes that in time to save their country. If not, when they are nothing but pieces, Russia will be there to trade with. Certainly, the oil will be there along with other basic commodities. I am impressed by the amount of aide in terms of food to the Donbass has been distributed. Germany may very well need that too.
– We got to stop Russia (from being westernized and forming alliance with Germany), and the place to stop …. is to split (Europa/Russia) down
the border of Ukraine
– Let us support the crazies … as in Afganistan
— Zbigniew Brzezinski = the master of US Russian policy
Excellent! It means Putin hasn’t turned his back on Europe just yet, despite what some here think (or wish, dare I say it). It’s as if he knows who’s calling the shots.
President Putin manages to answer the questions without being offensive, even using humor, and cleverly gets many points into his answers which remind us of general important aspects of policy and relationships which are relevant to present, past and future decisions. Nobody on the world stage even approaches his competence.
The entire cabal of Western “leaders” aren’t qualified to lick the soles of Putin’s shoes…
– US President Joe Biden has said that UK Prime Minister Liz Truss was wrong to try to solve Britain’s economic troubles by aggressively cutting taxes.
So logically Pravda in case of
“Evacuation of Allied soldiers from the beaches and harbour of Dunkirk, France, between 27 May and 4 June 1940”
could have commented
– The Germans should have overrun the Brits at full force before evacuation happened
Tax funded by Russia RT = a Western 5th column
Joe Biden in Pennsylvania speech:
– In reality, a large number of populists favor free markets and limited government,
So liberals are against free market and pro big goverment
– NATO has “de-facto become involved in the Ukraine conflict,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russia 1 TV on Sunday,
When EU imposed 5-6 rounds of sanctions on Russia, just like sanctioning Hitler Germany in the 30-ties…
that is “de-facto involved”
