In a heated address made in his hometown, Vladimir Putin accused the US of playing God and dismissed the West’s ‘blitzkrieg’ of sanctions.

On Friday, Russian President Vladimir Putin cautioned that “nothing will be as it used to be” as he emphasized his country’s strength and endurance at an economic event in St Petersburg.

‘We are strong people who can handle any challenge,’ he remarked. We will tackle any challenge, just like our forefathers; our country’s thousand-year history proves that.’

During a Q&A, Putin joked about rumors about his deteriorating health, saying, “Like Mark Twain famously quipped, “The speculations about my death were highly exaggerated.”

The 69-year-old stated the US saw itself as “God’s emissary on Earth,” and that Russia was assuming its place in a new international order governed by “strong and sovereign states.”

‘If they’re special, then everyone else is second-class,’ he remarked of the United States. ‘They are alone in the past, living in their own delusions.’

He received cheers as he pledged to continue his ‘special military operation’ in Ukraine, insisting that the invasion was ‘forced – tough, of course, but forced and essential.’

He described Ukraine’s campaign as the actions of a “sovereign country with the right to defend its security,” accusing the West of “active military annexation of Ukrainian territory.”

Due to a cyber-attack that knocked out the forum’s accreditation and entrance procedures, Putin’s speech was pushed back one hour.

When he finally approached the stage, Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed that his country’s economy was capable of overcoming ‘reckless and insane’ sanctions.

He also offered a thinly veiled warning to any billionaires considering leaving his government, saying, ‘It’s safest in your own house.’

‘Those who refused to listen have lost millions of dollars abroad.’
