Hitler would envy: Putin called the Russian ethnicity dominant, and Russia - the vanguard of world development. Video
Russian dictator Vladimir Putin made several statements in the spirit of the "Russian world" when addressing the participants of the World Russian People's Council on November 28. According to him, Russia's war against Ukraine is an alleged battle for sovereignty by the aggressor country, which is of a national liberation nature.
Putin's words were quoted by Russian propaganda media. "Because we are defending the security and well-being of our people, the supreme historical right to be Russia - a strong, independent state, a country-civilization," he said.
In addition, the Russian president believes that his country "is at the forefront of the formation of a new just world order." He is also convinced that a strong world order is allegedly impossible without a strong Russia.
According to the dictator, the modern Russian Federation is "regaining and strengthening its sovereignty as a world power." At the same time, he again heaped accusations on the West, which "does not need a great Russia."
Putin also made several chauvinistic statements, praising the Russian ethnic group, which he called the dominant one.
"Without Russians as an ethnic group, there is no Russia and no Russian world," and "Russians are more than a nationality, they are a cultural and historical identity," he said.
The Russian president's speech also included traditional imperialist ideas. He stated that Russia "has to solve the problem of arranging vast spaces from the Pacific Ocean to the Baltic and the Black Sea."
"The Russian world is Ancient Russia, the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union, and modern Russia," the dictator added.
