Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that the four provinces of Ukraine, Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia, which are under the control of the Russian army, have now become part of the Russian Federation. In the 2014 war, Russia took control of the Crimea region of Ukraine and annexed it to Russia. Ukrainian President Zelensky announced regaining control over Crimea from Russia. But by cutting off four more regions from Ukraine, Russia has created a sensation all over the world. A referendum was held in all these four provinces, and the people here decided to join Russia. Therefore, these have become Russian territories, and President Putin has warned that Russia would take any extreme decision to protect them.
After Russia announced referendums in Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia, there were talks of the country preparing to separate the regions from Ukraine. The US and European countries strongly opposed these moves of Russia. Regardless, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on Friday that all four provinces would become part of the Russian Federation. Also, by saying that Russia can take any drastic decision to protect its territory, the Russian President once hinted that a nuclear war could ignite due to an attack on these territories. The Russian President has also warned that Ukraine should immediately stop the war and start talks with Russia. Also, in the speech made on this occasion, President Putin severely criticized the Western countries, including the United States and accused them of imposing their hegemony on the world.
By insulting the US as the only country that launched a nuclear attack, the Russian President mentioned the crimes committed by the US so far. ‘The US and the West do not accept the sovereignty of any country. Western colonialists can go to any extent to impose their domination on the world. Countries that oppose the US are threatened to force them to change their policies or exterminate them. The Western colonialists who whitewashed the people of China by making them addicted to opium were not ready to admit their crimes. These colonialists looted a country like India. But Russia never became a colony of these countries. However, Russia’s name may be on this list in the future,’ Putin claimed.
‘But no matter what happens, Russia is not ready to compromise its sovereignty and self-respect. Russia will not betray its traditional values and culture. I have full faith in Russia’s power; Russia will fight against the US and the West with all its might,’ President Putin proclaimed.
‘The US and the West are advocating depravity, and the civilized Russian people will never tolerate it. These policies of the West are not only against Russia but also harming the people of Western countries. Russia, which opposes it, is receiving increasing support from other countries. Putin realized that Russia is getting a good response from even the US,’ Vladimir Putin said on this occasion. As Putin’s speech leaves lasting repercussions, analysts in European countries are claiming that it is meant to provoke not only the Russian people but also the opponents of the US and Western countries worldwide as it leaves deep repercussions.
These European analysts claimed that President Putin is sending a message to Latin American and Middle Eastern countries as well as China and India. These analysts also say that its impact will be seen in the future. Meanwhile, the tables have turned in the Ukraine war, and now it seems that the Ukrainian army has turned against Russia. In such a situation, to hide the retreat of his army, the Russian President has tried to show his victory by cutting off four regions of Ukraine, the Western media claims. But Russia has already announced that it will not withdraw from Ukraine unless its objectives are achieved.
Russia has raised the alarm from time to time about the people of four regions of Ukraine being pro-Russia and that the Ukrainian government was mistreating them. Therefore, some strategic analysts have underscored that Russia’s main objective was to capture the Ukrainian provinces of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia. Accordingly, it has now come to light that Russia had prepared to cut off Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia from Ukraine beforehand. Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev warned that after these regions become part of Russia, any attack on them would be considered an attack on Russia. Medvedev also highlighted that Russia would not hesitate to launch a nuclear attack to protect this territory. Therefore, the world is now paying close attention to what the US and NATO, which are standing by Ukraine in this war, will do in the future.हिंदी
