Putin’s speech at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum June 2022

Official transcript is here. Here is Gilbert Doctorow‘s post on the speech and there are two paragraphs on the blockade of Kaliningrad by the EU.

However, on Friday evening Lithuania announced a partial blockade on rail traffic to Kaliningrad. Specifically, all goods subject to EU sanctions would no longer be allowed to transit their country. This would amount to about half of all railway freight, and would present Kaliningrad with a host of problems to resolve if alternate, sea transportation has to be put in place.

By Saturday morning, Russian news channels were discussing the counter-leverage Russia may exert in response to the Lithuanian move. They claim that the free transit of goods between the Russian Federation and its outpost, Kaliningrad, was a precondition agreed by all parties at the start of the 1990s when Russia accepted the line of its international border with Lithuania. If free transit was now being withheld, Russia might cancel its acceptance of the borders. As regards leverage of a non-legal variety, threats were being made to cut the supply of Russian electricity to Lithuania, which is a major element in the country’s energy balance.

One thing is certain, Europe is the absolute loser in this whole episode.

Had they listened to Putin back then in Munich in 2007 …

Had they listened to Putin back then in Munich in 2007 and not engaged in ‘The Secret American Plan to Make Russia Great Again‘, we would not be where we are now.

Vladimir Putin’s landmark speech on February 10th 2007 at 43rd Munich Security Conference where he openly criticized the US for its striving for a unipolar world, its unrestrained use of force and its disdain for international law. For the first time since the end of the Cold War he made clear that Russia does not intend to fit in this kind of world order. Despite his criticism, Putin didn’t seek confrontation but called for a new partnership on a fair basis.The Western mainstream media, however, distorted his speech and portrayed it as a malicious attack. Watch and judge for yourself.

Quoting from the ‘Naked Capitalism‘ blog:

“This event was in the time frame where Putin still harbored hopes of Russia being able to operate like a normal advanced economy and having cooperative relations with other countries. But those in the US/NATO defense community who hadn’t already taken a dislike to him already used this talk as an excuse. Putin had the temerity to speak directly as opposed to deferentially, pointed out the world was moving to multipolarity by virtue of the growing economic heft of countries like China and India, and worst of all, that the US was threatening the notion of international law by launching wars without getting UN approval. That in turn jeopardized stability since no country could feel safe. I am sure quite a few leaders year later took note of how Gadaffi was our friend until suddenly he wasn’t.”

An American in an “Attempt at objectivity”

This is no lefty, no commie. He’s Filthie and he tries to explain Russia, Putin, Ukraine and in doing that a lot of fucked up politicians. Filthie is pretty good. Decide for yourself.

An Attempt At Objectivity

“I wonder if this isn’t just a case of acclimation? Think about it – for the last 40 years, we in the west have elected a steady stream of ridiculous fops, carnies, perverts, and shysters for our leaders. Turdo. Macron. Biden. Merkel et al. Even the retards are beginning to see it and lose patience with them. Could it be that we are so used to these cretins posing as our leaders… that we no longer recognize a warrior when we see one?

It’s a recurring theme I see going on with the disconnected normies, the self proclaimed experts, and the other Globohomo zombies… is this idea the Putin is a mad man, a megalomaniac, and a murderous socialist zealot. Where have I heard this kind of codswallop before? The chant used to be “Orange Man Bad!!!”. Now it’s “Russia Man Bad!!!”. The same message coming from the same tools that brought America a cooked election and a fake pandemic. Gah – I’ll leave Aesop and the foot-loops to their stories and narratives…. but now I am genuinely interested now. Who is Vlad Putin? What makes him tick?

Hmmmmm. Born in 1952. Grew up with the Cold War. Graduated from law school and went to work for the KGB in 1975 or so. Welp… he isn’t an idiot, that’s for sure. He rose in rank and retired from the KGB as a lieutenant colonel. So, we can safely say he’s no nut job either. He was the Russian answer to James Bond, really. 

Got started in politics, and was brought in to turn Russia around. When the old Soviet Union collapsed, many former east bloc countries fell into anarchy and chaos and turned into war zones run by competing gangsters and war lords vying for control. People complained when Vlad seized extraordinary powers for himself, and used them to eliminate his rivals. What folks don’t get is the fact that any number of Vlad’s rivals were just as bad – and many were far worse – than he was. They would have used the exact same tactics too. That is the way Russians roll. It’s also why, when their politics go sideways…tens of millions of innocent people end up dead. In Russian terms, Vlad is a saint. And turn Russia around he did! When he first came to power the population of Russia dropped as people flooded west to more freedom loving countries. As he slowly reversed the economic depression, people started having families again and the population of Russia started to rise. Russians have no use for the morally and intellectually bankrupt. Putin began finding such people in his govt – and ruthlessly rooted them out. Our leaders today would have probably been sent to the gulag decades ago if Putin were in charge.

In 2015 turmoil and disorder erupted in the Ukraine. The US – over the objections of Putin and his country, overthrew a legally elected leader installed a puppet Ukrainian govt headed by Zelensky. Almost at once Zelensky started poking and taunting the bear. The Ukraine competes with Russia as a gas and oil supplier. Under Zelensky, the Ukraine started extorting billions of dollars a year from Russia by playing fast and loose with trade agreements and ignoring others altogether. 

The US didn’t listen to the Russian complaints because the Ukraine bought off the Bidens, the Kerrys, the Clintons, and the Romneys. There are undoubtedly others. So… no, General Aesop. Putin didn’t just wake up one day and decide to invade the Ukraine. He tried to talk to you about it, and you didn’t listen to him.The Ukrainians under Zelensky went on to the kill 14,000 civilians in the former Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. The first thing Zelensky did was make the use of the Russian language illegal even in areas where Russian was the dominant language. Putin isn’t asking for anything unreasonable either. NATO has been crowding his borders with tanks, troops, and ordnance for over a decade now – this despite their promises that they wouldn’t do that. He wants your troops off his borders, he wants an end to the corruption and blatant theft of the finks in the Ukraine, and he wants a mutually enforced neutrality for the Ukraine. You could have thrown him a bone at any time during the last decade… but you pissed in his face and called him names instead. Now you and the mean girls are trying to cancel him on Facebook and Twitter!

Biden and faggots like you have been tormenting and taunting the shit out of that Russian Bear, and if you keep fucking with him…you’re going to find out. As we speak, Russia is slowly pounding the Ukraine into rubble. All you need to do is start TALKING to the guy to make it stop. Ball’s in your court, morons.

Putin is not a nice guy. He is a warrior – unlike certain gay male nurses in California that pretend to know it all. Putin does not like killing but will do it if that is what he needs to do in order to safeguard his country. Politics that come from bumper stickers and one liner memes aren’t going to cut it.

It’s said that people get the govt they want and deserve. Perhaps we have ours… and the Ukes are getting theirs? Time will tell I suppose.”

Blatantly without mercy ripped from Filthie.
