First off, I’d love to get the original Putin speech and be able to read / hear it all in context and unedited. Second, the guy editing this takes a gratuitous turn into anti-Zionist stuff at one point. I don’t really care as it is what Putin is saying that interests me, not the guy wrapping it in his own spin.
The basic line Putin is giving is that Soros and the EU are out to destroy the Nation State and take down Christianity and The Family with it. What? Wait… Isn’t that the same thing we’ve just figured out? (Or at least, that I’ve just figured out in the last year…)
No wonder the EU and the Globalists are so hell bent on stirring up trouble between the USA and Russia. It’s a “Let’s you and him fight, I’ll hold your coat” set up.
FWIW my Russian is crap, but to the extent I caught words and phrases, the translation in these videos is accurate.
So here’s the video. About 8 minutes:
At this point is it looking to me like Russia and the Visegrád States will end up being the Bastion of Democracy & Christianity in the world. It clearly isn’t going to be the EU. The USA is still “in play” as to the fate it will get.
Then there is this 7 minute video from just after the election but before Trump took office. Notice the length and complexity of the question, then how long Putin takes for a response. I think I detect the influence of the Russian Novel ;-) But also Putin has some fun with “word play”. What fascinates me most is that Putin knew the state of play and the international game board even then. While many of us in the USA were just thinking “Oh, Trump won!”…
OMG they are so far ahead of our typical mass media drone!
Knowing what I know of Russian culture and history, I would answer as Mr. Putin answers. I find myself, against my prejudices, liking and respecting this man.
