The primary takeaway from President Putin’s latest TV interview is that the Ukrainian Conflict is actually a struggle over the direction of the global systemic transition, not just a clash between two former Soviet Republics or a proxy war between NATO and Russia over “spheres of influence” in the region.
Russian President Putin made five very important points about the NATO-Russian proxy war in Ukraine during his latest TV interview with journalist Pavel Zurabin for the “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin” program aired by Rossiya-1 TV channel. The full transcript isn’t available on the official Kremlin website at the time that this analysis was published, but readers can review these five links from TASS for each of the points that will now be summarized:
1. Russian-Led Multipolarity vs. US-Led Unipolarity
The NATO-Russian proxy war is part of the New Cold War between those two forces over the direction of the global systemic transition, which Moscow wants to lead towards multipolarity while Washington wants to retain as much of its fading unipolar hegemony as possible. The outcome of this struggle will literally determine the future of International Relations, which will in turn enhance or erode every country’s sovereignty, which is why it’s of concern to everyone in the world.
2. Russia’s National Unity Ensures Its Resilience
The US-led West’s Golden Billion is waging an unprecedented Hybrid War on Russia, yet that targeted Great Power remains resilient because of its people’s national unity, without which it wouldn’t have survived everything that it’s experienced over the past year. It’s precisely the socio-cultural and historical bonds which have held its cosmopolitan population together for a millennia that are being attacked through these unconventional means, but President Putin doesn’t expect this plot to succeed.
3. The West Wants Russia’s “Balkanization”
Building upon the point that former President Medvedev made last week, incumbent President Putin confirmed that the West is indeed seeking Russia’s “Balkanization”, after which it’ll “admit us to the so-called family of civilized peoples, but only by parts, each part separately.” As was mentioned in the preceding paragraph, this civilization-state’s national unity prevents that scenario from materializing, but it’s nevertheless important to still highlight that de facto New Cold War bloc’s dastardly designs.
4. The West Is Complicit In Kiev’s War Crimes
By providing arms to their proxy free of charge like dozens of Western countries have already done, President Putin rightly described them as complicit in Kiev’s war crimes despite their unconvincing claims that they’re not directly involved in the conflict. The fact of the matter is that the Ukrainian regime wouldn’t have been able to commit many of its related crimes had the West not provided it with the means to.
5. US Vassals Play A Leading Role
President Putin pointed out that US vassals are playing a leading role in the conflict, with some doing so due to the misguided belief that their interests converge with their patron’s in this respect while others still do what’s demanded of them despite knowing that it’s against their interests. No matter how many of its satellites that declining unipolar hegemon weaponizes against Russia, however, the latter’s leader is confident that his country and its multipolar cause will inevitably prevail.
The primary takeaway from President Putin’s latest TV interview is that the Ukrainian Conflict is actually a struggle over the direction of the global systemic transition, not just a clash between two former Soviet Republics or a proxy war between NATO and Russia over “spheres of influence” in the region. This is truly an existential battle for that Eurasian Great Power since it risks “Balkanization” if it loses, though that scenario still seems unlikely and can always be averted by Chinese armed aid if it begins to emerge.
