Don't mess with nuclear Russia, Putin says

LAKE SELIGER Russia (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin said on Friday Russia's armed forces, backed by its nuclear arsenal, were ready to meet any aggression, declaring at a pro-Kremlin youth camp that foreign states should understand: "It's best not to mess with us."

Putin told the assembly, on the banks of a lake near Moscow, the Russian takeover of Crimea in March was essential to save a largely Russian-speaking population from Ukrainian government violence.

He said continued fighting in eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian separatists launched an uprising in April, was the result of a refusal by Kiev to negotiate.

Ukraine, and Western governments, accuse Russia of sending troops and armor to back the separatists in a conflict that has already killed over 2,000 people. Russia denies the charge.

"Russia is far from being involved in any large-scale conflicts," he said at the camp on the banks of Lake Seliger."We don't want that and don't plan on it. But naturally, we should always be ready to repel any aggression towards Russia.

"Russia's partners... should understand it's best not to mess with us," said Putin, dressed casually in a grey sweater and light blue jeans.

"Thank God, I think no one is thinking of unleashing a large-scale conflict with Russia. I want to remind you that Russia is one of the leading nuclear powers."

Putin spoke easily with the students, many of whom looked to be asking scripted questions about demography and history. Other times he accepted gifts or, smilingly, played down their praise.

When a student said that she had not heard a single negative comment about Putin's presidency from camp speakers, he responded with a grin that "objectivity" was important.

His tone darkened when speaking on Ukraine, blaming the United States and the European Union for the "unconstitutional" removal of Kiev's former Moscow-backed president Viktor Yanukovich and replacement with a pro-European government.

He said eastern Ukraine did not agree with Yanukovich's removal and was now subjected to "crude military force" from government planes, tanks and artillery.

"If those are contemporary European values, then I'm simply disappointed in the highest degree," he said, comparing Ukraine's military operations in the east of the country with the Nazi siege of Leningrad in World War Two.

"Small villages and large cities surrounded by the Ukrainian army which is directly hitting residential areas with the aim of destroying the infrastructure... It sadly reminds me of the events of the Second World War, when German fascist... occupiers surrounded our cities."

So this closet bender is now throwing the N (nuclear)word about.

It really has got to the stage where we have to ask ourselves who Her Majesty's Government actually serves I'm afraid.

Time to come to terms with this particular scam drying up.

It gave the City fat cats and the Russian mafia/KGB hoods a new lease of "life" but unfortunately it has strangled everyone else.

Time to start looking around for something of real value to get those numbers back on mate.

I don't think anyone believes Putin or Assad are the bad guys in this.

The zionist media will have to do something a little better than simply repeat lies again and again at least while we have the internet showing up all their brazen lies in real-time.

Re: Putin
The most scary thing here is everyone's, including most of the Tories, desperation to get him to play nice again and his decision that it's in his interests to play nasty.
He's supplied Assad with chemical weapons that were actually used to no response.
He's supported, at least financially, the Islamic State in Syria to help discredit the genuine Assad opposition, to no response.
So he's supported a corrupt murderer in Ukraine, who killed members of the public just because they wanted their country to associate with the EU, and we finally have sanctions.
All the time, he's filled the internet with a flood of lies and propaganda as a smokescreen behind which he realises aggression. He's invaded a neighbouring country that has never meant Russia any harm and annexed its land (Crimea) behind that smokescreen of lies, throwing the entire post-WW2 world order into unprecedented confusion.
Then he did it again in the Donbas, and when the Ukrainians started fighting back pretty much completely unsupported by their western "allies" - who ought to be interested in maintaining world order (yes, that's your government) so we can all get on with our normal lives and invest our way out of a six-year recession - he has his proxies there SHOOT DOWN AN INTERNATIONAL PASSENGER PLANE and try to pin it on THE UKRAINIAN GOVERNMENT.
Then when the poor Ukrainian squaddies started to inch into urban territory occupied by his gunmen and thugs, doing their absolute best to avoid civilian casualties, he sends in a "humanitarian convoy", which was in fact actually designed to plunder the key military-industrial infrastructure in the area.
Meantime, he continues to pump in arms and manpower, now actually opening a new front along the coast of the Black Sea towards Odessa and the EU's southern flank, all the time denying he's even there!
And so what is the response? Give the job of CC of EU to Poland's PM Tusk? Well, I hope today's reports of a UK-led NATO division to be deployed in Ukraine are not a media pipe-dream actually.

Re: Putin
Amazing how many naive twerps there are in places like London, Paris and New York who actually admire probably the most dangerous man in Europe since Hitler and Stalin.

And then there are those who actively support him on the internet out of business interests, or rather blatant, cynical greed - don't get me started about cunts like that.

Re: Putin
The Ukraininan revolution was completely constitutional. The Ukrainian parliament, including President Yanukovich's own former allies, voted for his impeachment and he fled the country to Russia. The current President was then voted in by a large majority.

Putin is an idiot or mental. He's driving his own country into the ground. The sanctions already announced will probably have a similar effect to the 2009 economic crisis for Russia if he doesn't change course.

Re: Putin

Thing is that he's fucking his country over in the long-term. Should be sitting comfortably between Europe and China and the rest of Asia raking in cash for nat gas and oil, tackling corruption and focusing on real economic development and development of stable institutions not reliant on his personal power.

Instead he's trying to become a third power pole behind the Yanks and EU and China and is little more than a bully of former Soviet Republics.

The Chinese will end up owning Siberia anyway, and Vlad is hastening the process.

Be lucky if we are still all around when the World Cup is due in Russia let alone play in it !!!

By the way why do reporters say things like - "said Putin, dressed casually in a grey sweater and light blue jeans."

Or "We would have won if we had taken our chances" said Allardyce wearing a dark blue suit from Top Man with a light blue Officers Club shirt several sizes too small and a claret and sky blue tie from the Hammers shop at Lakeside!!"

Do we bloody care what people are wearing?!!!!

To be fair, he's got a point.

Re: Putin
Putin is simply responding to the increased encroachment by the Americans and their puppets.

For example, the missile "defence" systems in Poland, and now the attempted absorption of the Ukraine into Team America.

In short, he's looking out for Russia's legitimate interests.

The madmen are those in Washington and London. They are pushing the Russians to the limit here.
