“Russia uses all available means to protect itself,” the Russian president said
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, September 21, 2022 declared a partial mobilization in Russia, citing threats from NATO.
In his much-anticipated speech, Putin claimed that Washington was pressuring Kyiv to transfer hostilities to the territory of the Russian Federation, adding that nuclear blackmail had been used, without elaborating.
“Russia is using all available means to protect itself,” the Russian president said. In addition, he announced the holding of referendums in the Russian-occupied regions of Ukraine.
“We support these people,” he emphasized. “Our goal is to liberate Donbas and we have no moral right to abandon these people,” he added.
The speech also contained the announcement of the signing of the decree for the partial conscription of the Russians, with Mr. Putin declaring that the relevant recruitment procedures begin “from today.”
“The West wants to destroy Russia,” the Kremlin leader said: “It has started nuclear blackmail against Russia, going beyond all limits.” He noted that most residents of the region do not wish to return under the “yoke” of Ukraine.
He also did not fail to talk again about neo-Nazis in Ukraine and claimed that NATO is conducting reconnaissance throughout southern Russia through its secret services.
Finally, he announced that the Russian government would increase funds for weapons production.
