Putin assured that his action in Ukraine was “the right decision”

Russia began its “special military operation” in Ukraine to prevent incursions into its territory and this was “the only correct decision,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday, May 9, during Victory Day.

In a speech on the occasion of the 77th anniversary of Victory Day, and a massive military parade in Moscow’s Red Square, commemorating the defeat of Nazi Germany at the hands of the Red Army of the then Soviet Union in World War II, Putin assured that the Army is fighting for the people in Donbas and for the security of Russia.

“Last year we suggested to the NATO countries that they sign a security treaty, but they did not want to listen to us, they had completely different plans and an attack on Crimea was being prepared,” the Russian president said.

“The alliance began the military development of the territories adjacent to us… a clash with the neo-Nazis was inevitable,” the Russian leader added.

Putin also observed a minute of silence in honor of those who “gave their lives for the Motherland.”

“The death of each soldier is a pain for all of us, we will do everything to help the families and children of the soldiers killed in Ukraine,” Putin said.

Moscow calls the war against Ukraine a “special military operation” to “demilitarize” and “denazify” the neighboring country. For the West, however, it is an aggression, for which it has imposed severe sanctions in response.

At least 3,238 civilians have been killed and 3,397 others injured in Ukraine since Russia launched a war against the country on February 24, according to UN estimates.

The real number is feared to be much higher. More than 5.8 million people have fled to other countries, with some 7.7 million people internally displaced, data from the UN refugee agency shows.
