In Osteuropa 9-10/2022

Speech on the Occasion of the Signing of the Treaty on the Acceptance of the “People’s Republics” of Donets'k and Luhans'k and the Zaporizhzh'e and Kherson Regions into the Russian Federation

Deutsche Fassung


Osteuropa documents a speech by the Russian president on September 30, 2022. It was held on the occasion of a “celebration”, but even the speaker does not feel like celebrating. A brief howl of triumph is followed by tirades of hatred against the West. By way of positive program, Putin has on offer: destiny, battlefields, history.
