(WatchDogReport.org) – After more than a month of public silence, Russian President Vladimir Putin made some remarks about the war in Ukraine. On April 12, the Russian leader visited the Vostochny Cosmodrome for Cosmonauts’ Day with Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko. There, he commented the invasion was necessary due to a national security issue, and he affirmed his country would succeed in its mission.

Putin insisted Russia had “no other choice” but to attack Ukraine and said the troops were actually “saving people.” He stated the Russians were in Donbas and other regions to provide aid, while he pushed the false narrative that the country was overrun with Nazis. Putin has yet to prove this claim or explain the brutal attacks on civilians in Mariupol and Bucha.
Despite the Russian president’s claims and his belief that he will be victorious, the rest of the world has quite a different view of the events in Ukraine. They see the Russian invasion as an attempt to squash democracy in a sovereign nation and rebuild the USSR empire of old.
Putin is currently accused of heinous war crimes. President Joe Biden and other leaders of the world want to see him held accountable for his and his troops’ actions during the ongoing war in Ukraine.
