TRANSCRIPT

(24:20 mins)

 

[00:00]

 

 

Audience (female): My question concerns the current situation in Ukraine. We all support your actions and the special operation that is underway there. Naturally, the most important question, which, one way, or another, all of us have asked ourselves, is why this special operation has started. Could it not have been avoided?

 

Rationally, we do understand and support your actions, but as women we cannot help but worry for our family, relatives, for those who are in Ukraine. We know that the civilians are not impacted. But nevertheless, tell us, reassure us what are we to expect at the end of this road? What will be the end result of the military operation in Ukraine? Thank you.

 

 

Vladimir Putin: I will be brief but still will have to start, as they say, from “the center of the field”. I said about this at the start of the operation and also spoke about this before. This decision has been made, a hard decision, without a doubt.

 

What is this about? The fact of the matter is that after the anti-constitutional coup in Ukraine, which, unfortunately, was strongly supported by the Western countries — let us face it. They do not even hide the fact that they have spent $5 billion on it, not to mention cookies given away on Maidan. And so on.

 

And after that, instead of bringing the situation back on track, even if it had spiraled out of control, even if it had been the act of the overzealous locals — there is such legal term, i.e., planned one thing. But the result turned out to be something else — they still could have, and should have, returned the situation back onto the political track.

 

 

Furthermore, shortly before the coup, the Foreign Ministers of the three countries came to Kiev in 2014 and signed an agreement with the Ukrainian government acting as guarantors of this agreement to ensure that the situation would be developing in the political sphere.

 

But nothing like that occurred. They organized a coup d’état and supported the perpetrators.

 

What followed were the well-known events related to the Crimea and the southeast of Ukraine, Donbass, where people refused to support the coup.

 

As we know, the Crimea made a decision; people came to vote in a referendum to return to the Russian Federation. Naturally, yes, naturally, we cannot but support that decision, all the more so, since they felt they were in danger from the nationalists and neo-Nazis.

 

There is strong evidence that they were absolutely right in that. Later, or, rather, in parallel, the events in Donbass were taking place.

 

What have these events led to? People resisting the results of the coup were persecuted. Eventually, the new Kiev authorities initiated a military operation on that territory. They have conducted two large-scale punitive operations using of heavy weapons and combat aviation. They directly attacked Donetsk destroying the city squares with aviation, using tanks and artillery.

 

Both these military campaigns failed. The Ukrainian army suffered defeat.

 

 

After that, so-called Minsk Agreements, or the Package of Measures, to use the official term, have been concluded. The agreements offered a path for a peaceful settlement of the conflict. We did everything we could to direct the events along this path, to restore the territorial integrity of Ukraine as well as to protects the interests of the people living in these territories.

 

What did these people demand? Nothing but the basic things the right to speak their mother tongue, i.e., Russian, and maintain their traditions and culture. These were by no means extraordinary demands. But no. These territories were put under economic blockade; disconnected from the banking system; the supplies of food were stopped; the payments of the pensions and social assistance were suspended. Sometimes, some handouts were given. But in order to get those pensions and benefits a person had to cross the separation line.

 

Now listen. I will now say something that may sound rough but the situation compels me to say it that occasionally in some regions packs of stray dogs attack people, injure, or even kill them (this is a separate problem, and it is for the local authorities to deal with). But then these animals are poisoned, or shot dead.

 

But people of Donbass are not stray dogs. Approximately 13,000-14,000 people have been killed during these years. Over 500 children have been killed, or injured. But what is particularly intolerable is that the so-called “civilized” West has preferred all these years to look the other way. All these years — eight years! Eight years! Moreover, lately the Kiev authorities started to say openly and publicly that they are not going to fulfill the Minsk Agreements. They are saying this from the TV screens and online. They are saying this everywhere on the record:

 

“We do not like them; we will not do it.”

 

And all this time, Russia has been accused of not fulfilling the agreements. This is simply nonsense; the theater of the absurd; White is called black and black is called White.

 

Lately, things got even worse. Actually, the talk has started long ago, but intensified of late. More and more often we hear that Ukraine would be admitted into NATO. Do you understand what this could lead to? Or can lead to still? If Ukraine is a NATO member, then according to the North Atlantic Treaty, all other members must support the country in case of a military conflict.

 

No one, besides us, has recognized Crimea as a Russian territory. They are conducting military operations in Donbas, but also could move onto Crimea, and in such case we would have to fight with the whole of NATO.

 

What is that? Do you understand the consequences? I think everyone understands. Now they (Ukraine) are talking about acquiring nuclear status, i.e., developing nuclear weapons. We cannot possibly ignore such things, particularly considering that we know how the so-called West behaves with regard to Russia.

 

 

First, Ukraine has some nuclear competence left from the Soviet time. As far as enrichment and nuclear material are concerned, they would be able to organize that work. They have missile abilities, suffice to mention Yuzhmush. This company used to build intercontinental ballistic missile equipment for the Soviet Union. They could recover that ability and do it. And those from across the ocean would even help them do it. And after that would say:

 

“Well, we do not recognize the nuclear status; they have done everything themselves.”

 

And then they would put these complexes under control. And from that moment on, from that very second, the fate of Russia will be completely different. Because in that case, our strategic adversaries would not even need intercontinental ballistic missiles. They would keep us right here at the nuclear gunpoint, that is all. How could we disregard such a thing? These are absolutely real threats, not some far-fetched silly fantasy.

 

Our boys who are now fighting and risking their lives, they are fighting and giving their lives for our future, for the future of our children. This is something perfectly obvious. And the people who do not want to understand that, particularly those among today’s leaders (of Ukraine), have to understand that if they keep doing what the have been doing — I have spoken about this before. — they put at risk the very future of the Ukrainian statehood. If this happens, that will be entirely their fault.

 

 

What is going on now? I have already mentioned our objectives in this operation. First, of course, is to protect the people living in Donbass. How? By demilitarizing and denazifying Ukraine as well as establishing it’s neutral status.

 

Why? Because the neutral status means Ukraine will not be joining NATO. They have it written in the Constitution that the country will be joining NATO. You understand — they have included that into the Constitution!

 

Denazification — what does this mean? I have spoken with my Western colleagues about this. They say”What is the problem? You also have the radical nationalists”. Yes, we do. But we do not have them in the government, but everybody agrees that they (the Ukrainians) do. Perhaps, we have some idiots running around with swastika, but do we support that at the government level? Do thousands of people march with torches and swastikas on the streets of our capital, or other cities in Russia, like it happened in 1930s in Nazi Germany?

 

 

Is something like that happening in Russia? But it happens in Ukraine, and it is supported. Do we support those who killed the Russians, jews, or the Poles during the war? Do we hail them as heroes? But in Ukraine, they do.

 

The current events are also very important. Look, the foreign citizens have been taken hostages in Sumy and Kharkov — over 6,000 young people, students. They have been driven together into a railway station and kept there for 3 days. Listen, they have been held there for the third day. We have told everybody about this and informed the current Ukrainian authorities. They said:

 

“Yes, yes, of course, we will deal this right now.”

 

We have informed the leaders of the major European countries, I personally talked to them.:

 

“Yes, yes, we will put pressure on Ukraine right now.”

 

We informed the UN Secretary-General:

 

“Yes, yes, we will solve the problem, right? Away.”

 

Nobody is doing anything. People who are considered the citizens of Ukraine are treated even worse. They are simply used as a human shield.

 

Right now, in this very moment, this is happening in Mariupol. The Kiev government called our military:

 

“Provide humanitarian corridors so people could leave.”

 

Naturally, our people instantly responded, even suspended the military activities, and were observing what was happening. But no one was allowed to leave. You understand, no one was allowed out. They do not anybody leave but instead use the people as a human shield.

 

 

Who are they? The neo-Nazis, of course. We already observe the presence of the militants from the Middle East and some European countries. We know about them; we can hear them speak on the radio. They are using so-called jihad-mobiles, i.e., cars stuffed with explosives, which they drive towards the Russian troops. But they do not achieve anything, and they will fail in the end. Who are they, then, if not neo-Nazis? By such actions, they are destroying their own country and their own statehood.

 

That is why one of our key demands is demilitarization. In other words, we are helping people of Donbass by working towards the neutral status of Ukraine and the demilitarization of the country. We have to know with certainty what weapons are there, where they are deployed, and who controls them.

 

A number of options are on the table. We are discussing them now, including with the Kiev government representatives in our talks in Belarus. We are grateful to the President Lukashenko for organizing the meetings and helping us to conduct these negotiations.

 

Our proposals are on the table for the groups of the negotiators from Kiev to study. We hope that Kiev will respond positively to our proposals. This is pretty much all I wanted to say. Please, let us continue.

 

 

Audience (female): Schvidko, Yulia, the second pilot of the Aeroflot airline. Vladimir Vladimirovich, good afternoon. My question is about the current situation.

 

Many rumors are circulating about possible introduction of the martial law, drafting of volunteers and reservists. And that the draftees will be sent to Ukraine. Could you clarify whether the martial law will be declared and whether the drafted soldiers will be deployed to Ukraine?

 

Vladimir Putin: Many of what we now see, and what is happening is undoubtedly a technique to fight against Russia. By the way, the sanctions imposed today are close to a declaration of a war. But fortunately, we are not there yet.

 

I believe that our so-called “partners” still retain some understanding of what a war would mean and what danger it presents for everybody. That is despite that irresponsible statements, such as made by the British Foreign Minister, when she blurted that NATO could involve itself in the conflict.

 

 

At that point, we had to immediately make a decision to put our strategic forces on high alert. They reacted by saying that they did not mean anything of the sort. However, nobody put the Minister in her place, and nobody disavowed her statement. No one said anything to us about that statement, like it was her personal opinion, do not pay attention, or something like that. Nothing.

 

What are we supposed to think about that? That is why we reacted the way we did.

 

Now about your question. The martial law is introduced by the order of the President supported by the Federation Council. In the case of the external aggression, specifically in the regions where the military activity takes place. We are not in that situation now. And I hope will not be. This is first.

 

The second point — there is also, in addition to the martial law, a special status. This status is also declared by the Federation Council in case of a significant internal threat. The third regime is the state of emergency, which is usually declared in particular regions, although could also be adopted in the entire territory of the country. This regime is for technological and natural disasters. Thanks God, this is also not happening. We are not planning to declare any of these regimes on the territory of the Russian Federation. There is no need for that today.

 

We can see that attempts are being made to stir up trouble in our society, which is again a conformation of my words that we are dealing with not just the radicals. But with the neo-Nazis. Here people are expressing their opinion about what they like, or dislike in our action in Ukraine.

 

But there, in Ukraine, people that express the opinions similar to those expressed by the so-called “liberal” part of our society, are being detained on the streets and shot — we do have confirmation of that. Our special services are now collecting this information. And we will be presenting it soon. Our liberal intellectuals are protesting.

 

Whereas in Ukraine people that say anything in favor of Russia are been executed without trial. I repeat, that the martial law is declared in case of the external aggression, which I hope will not happen despite irresponsible statements of some officials. We hear that a no-fly zone should be established over the Ukrainian territory. This is impossible to do in the territory of Ukraine itself; this is only possible to organize from the territories of the neighboring countries.

 

 

However, we will consider any movement in this direction as active participation in the military conflict by a country, the territory of which is used to create danger for our servicemen. We will in a second consider them as a party to the military conflict. I hope this is also understood, and it will not come to that.

 

Only professional military personnel are taking part in this operation, officers and contract servicemen. Not a single drafted soldier is participating. And we are not planning to send them to Ukraine, and we will not. I repeat, only men who have made a voluntary responsible decision in their lives — to defend their country — are in Ukraine. And they are doing their duty with honor.

 

Why this is the case, why we have the right to say these words, I have just explained to you. This also applied to reserve personnel undergoing periodic military training — we are not planning to deploy them to Ukraine. They are summoned to the military training on the regular basis — this happens now and will be happening in the future. But we will not enlist these people for the active military service, and they will not participate in this conflict.

 

We have sufficient resources to achieve our objectives employing only our professional army.

 

I would like to comment on the military operation itself. I know many rumors and stories are being circulating. I do not have much time to learn about this. But I have been informed that people talk a lot about what is happening and how the operation is proceeding. All analysts know what is going on. So I am not going to reveal any secrets here.

 

 

We could have acted in many different ways. We could have helped the Donbass Republics directly on the separation line, i.e., on the front, using our Russian army to support them. But in such case, considering the unconditional support by the West of the radical nationalists, the Ukrainian side would have received constant support by weapons, material, ammunition, and all.

 

That is why our General Staff and the Ministry of Defense decided on a different strategy. First that was done is the elimination of the military infrastructure. Not entirely, but largely. The weapon depots, ammunition depots, aviation, air defense systems.

 

The destruction of the air defense systems requires certain time. You are civilians but you do work in aviation. You understand that these systems need to be uncovered and then destroyed; by now this work is largely done.

 

 

That is what brings about the demands for a no fly zone. However, an attempt to put this into effect would lead to enormous and catastrophic consequences not only for Europe, but also for the entire world. I do believe that the people on the other side do understand that. That is why we have chosen this path, correctly, as it turned out.

 

Our military is working responsibly doing everything possible to protect the civilians. Unfortunately, those neo-Nazi bandits do not have any consideration for the people. They even shoot their own servicemen who do not want to continue fighting — we do have evidence of that

 

Yes, those nationalists, neo-Nazis shoot their own servicemen. The nationalists are embedded in practically every Ukrainian military unit, several dozens of them in each, and they act in such a cruel way.

 

I repeat one more time we will not deploy draftees, or reservists to Ukraine to participate in this military operation. I am convinced that our army will achieve all our objectives. I do not doubt that for a second. This is evident from the way the operation is proceeding, which is strictly according to the plan, to the schedule; all is happening the way it had been planned by the General Staff.

 

Oh, regarding volunteers, the young people who come to the recruiting stations — we are grateful to them for their patriotic sentiments, the desire to support their country and its army in this time. The very fact that they come is significant. However, their help is not required at this time. And I am convinced will not be needed.

 

Now I am turning towards the camera. They will see me and hear what I am saying — thank you.

Putin is not mad, he’s quite sane and very intelligent. He knows what’s going on and can explain things in full detail unlike President Biden. Invading was a bold move but he definitely has reason to do so. I just hope this conflict ends soon

​ @Joe smith Ukraine have been killing women, children and civilians for 8 years. Russia is putting a stop to it after years of negotiations. Russia dismatles this far-right russophobic regime that have been developing a nuke and would very likely use it on Russian women, children and civilians in the future. Ukraine turned into a rogue state and became an existencial threat to Russia. Unfortually you can’t remove this far-right regime without spilling blood especially when Ukrainian army and Nazi battalions use civilians as shield, they act as ISIS hiding behind civilians. Nazi battalions don’t care about civilians since they consider them as potential Russians and separatists.
Russia doesn’t act as US did in Iraq, Russia tries to minimize civilian losses hitting military infrastructure and gives people humanitarian corridors but Ukrainian forces don’t let people leave. Don’t forget that Ukraine uses a lot of artillery and multiple rocket launchers that hit civilian objects, and they hide this hardware behind multi storey buildings, which makes them targets for return fire. Ukrainians tell their military to GTFO from their yards.

Your all brainwashed morons, everyone in this comment thread. West and East are mortal rivals, they will both do what they please to get a head of the other, in this case this has been building up since 2014 and surprisingly it’s not the US invading this time it’s Russia, but how Putin has carried out this operation of Peacekeeping is a disgusting and hasn’t been seen since WW2. Both sides care not about us or the soldiers and civilians… Higher power always finds a way we the average people aren’t different we are used to keep the war machine running..
We should be standing against war on both sides not fueling it with stupid comments on YouTube about what who did in the past….
We must unite.

Think about the civilian Russian that cant afford even a bread. Think about the elderly Russian that have worked hard his or her entire life just to see their pension being less then 1/10 of what it was 2 weeks ago.
And now the major trade partners in Europe and USA cut off Russian oil. Next is state bankruptcy. Then the pensions are totally gone. A sack of rice will cost a months salary…
Yeah sure, you just set your evil eyes on the future for the innocent people of Russia.

Honest to God, I have never seen an format like this in the USA. I think this is a far more difficult format than sitting down with journalists. These women have skin in the game. They are personally affected by these events. Their carreers are impacted because of sanctions. They may have loved ones fighting in the war. They are concerned how Russians are being vilified for just being Russian.
Putin has to explain this to them. I would rather be grilled by journalists. Kudos to him for not chickening out. I remember when Bush always ducked away from families impacted by the Iraq War.
I wish Americans could watch this and see how he takes the time to explain things and there is no political BS but so many of them have been conditioned to hate Putin since 2016. The many years of constant Russiagate conspiracy theories have damaged their brains.
They were certainly primed up for this war and are in a rage over Putin. They would not have the patience to watch and appreciate this. Moreover, the entire content of the Video would get drowned out because the media would figure out how to spin this into sexism since these women were “forced” to wear their flight attendant outfits.
We live in a woke world cancel culture over here and this is how they would attack. In the end they would never hear what he has to say.

This has to be the single most idiotic comment I’ve read all day. An intelligent man would have never underestimated the Ukrainian people and the will of freedom. The mighty Russian Army getting destroyed it’s economy is collapsing, its people are protesting while Putin fills your heads with Fear and jail sentences. He continues to Shill civilians and today blew up a maternity hospital.
Next the chemical weapons will come and he will blame it on the Ukrainians and the west, while his fingers rest on Nuclear Missiles he so casually threatened the world with….
The west don’t want to Nuke anyone…. NATO is strictly for defence. If we wanted to we could end this now, but we are better than that better than Putin and the prof is there.
The West and its allies “ALL” around the world haven’t raised a single weapon or dropped a single bomb in the process.
The world is shutting Russia down, good luck.

Support to Russia from Italy, Ukraine has been used like Poland was used in 39. There’s “”someone”” in London and Washington who wants Europe, Us and Russia to be enemies. I, instead, want these three Christian entities to be together and live in peace amongst them and with the rest of the world.

The meeting took place last Saturday in connection with the upcoming International Women’s Day (March 8th). Putin met with the female personnel of the Russian airline Aeroflot. The women present were pilots, second pilots, co-pilots, and other personnel of the airline. Putin has such meetings with women in different spheres every year.

@Eugenia Gurevich Thank you and God bless you for doing the translated subtitles of this video!!
My birthday is March 8th, and I will spend a good part of it in prayer for these women and their loved ones – especially their children (as I am mother to a young woman, this seems particularly appropriate).
I will also pray that the Russian military operation in the Ukraine will be blessed by God to succeed as efficiently as possible – that in succeeding, the entire world will become a safer place for us all.

I am proud to be a Russian Orthodox although I am ethnically not a Russian, but an Asian who formally adopted Russian Orthodoxy… Truth is truth no matter how you slice it… As Our Lord the Christos says, “Know Ye the Truth and the Truth Will Set you Free” Et cognoscetis ueritatem, et ueritas liberabit uos…. Pontius Pilate (before he ordered that the Christos be crucified asked, “What is truth?” Quid es veritas.

OP answered that on another posted question – March 8th is their Women’s Day, he does this every year. They have families on both sides so he answered their question. Being skeptical is understandable, however in order to form an educated opinion/decision the mind must be flexible. He’s not saying it directly, but there are plenty of articles written at the time regarding the CIAs involvement/US funding for the 2014 coup.

First, they are Russians, not Americans. Only Americans are so obtuse and self-absorbed that they could carry out international travel career and have no interest in international affairs. Second, there were pilots among the participants, and they clearly stated it, so you are making a point about your own skills and interests. Third, they are not randomly selected, but union shop stewards who will be explaining the current situation to their members. Most of them are already aware of much of what Putin mentioned, but he’s giving them a concise lesson and filling in gaps that they can carry back to their members, who helped formulate the questions their representatives asked. This is a kind of democracy that you won’t find in a place where people show up and vote for who they are told to, every 2 or 4 years.

Because the president Putin would lose some of his hard fought power = a no go. And no, Russia have never applied to be a common member of NATO. Russia wanted to recreate NATO and lead the alliance if they were to join. Putin have restarted the cold war because he is not seen as a world leader anymore, the west ignored him. Now he have acted like an attention craving baby to get attention.
