Putin announces a ‘military operation’ in Ukraine as the United Nations Security Council begs him to withdraw.

“Whoever tries to interfere with us, or even more so, to create threats to our country and people, must know that Russia’s response will be immediate and will lead you come to consequences like you have never experienced in your history,” Putin said. “We are ready for any eventuality.”

Putin sees his operation as both an attack on “Nazis” in Ukraine, as well as a rejection of the US-led world order. Ukraine’s desire to join NATO is a serious threat to Russia, he said. He referred to NATO’s 1999 bombing of Yugoslavia and the 2003 US invasion of Iraq to make it clear that he views the West as morally bankrupt.

For 30 years, we have been trying and patiently trying to reach an agreement with NATO countries on equal and indivisible security in Europe. However, he said, Russia has been caught with “cynical lies” and “blackmail” from the West.

The US-led West represents an “empire of lies,” he said.

In his statement, President Biden sought to place the responsibility on Putin’s shoulders.

“President Putin has chosen a premeditated war that will bring catastrophic loss of life and property,” Biden said. “Russia alone is responsible for the death and destruction this attack will bring, and the United States and its allies and partners will respond in a unified and decisive manner. The world will hold Russia accountable.”

In his speech, Mr. Putin continued to address the Russian people, saying that they were on the right side of history.

“You and I know that our strength lies in fairness and truth,” Putin said. “And if that is the case, it is hard not to agree that it is strength and readiness to fight that are fundamental to independence and sovereignty.”
