Putin denounced the West for provoking new conflicts. Putin said that the West is ready to provoke revolution in any country. Our geopolitical adversaries are ready to set any country on fire for their goals. To turn it into a crisis center and are ready to incite revolution and bloodshed.
The Russian President said, we have seen all this on more than one occasion. We also know that the West operates on scenarios to provoke new conflicts in the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) region. But we have enough power. But look at what is happening now between Russia and Ukraine, what is happening on the borders of some other CIS countries.
He said, do we really want in our schools, from the primary classes, that children have been imposed with deformities that lead to decline and extinction? That they had been taught that there was a gender other than a man and a woman and that they were offered a sex-change operation? Do we really want this for our country, for our children? All this is unacceptable to us, we have our own, different future.”
