Putin is a master politician. Well aware of America’s imperial designs.

Wanting Russia marginalized, contained, destabilized, weakened, isolated, smothered and controlled. Using Ukraine as a dagger against it.

Wanting pro-Western stooge governance replacing him. Beholden to US interests. Enabling them to carve up Russia for profit.

Steal its resources. Exploit it people. Make Russia America’s newest colony. Control its vast land mass. One sixth of planet earth’s land area.

On January 23, Putin met with permanent Security Council members. He chairs Russia’s key national security, defense and foreign relations body.

Ruling United Russia party heavyweights attended Friday’s meeting. Including Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. Upper house Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko.

Lower house State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin. Presidential Executive Office chief of staff Sergey Ivanov.

Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev. Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev. Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Federal Security Service director Alexander Bortnikov. Foreign Intelligence Service head Mikhail Fradkov.

Deputy Security Council Secretary Rashid Nurgaliyev. Permanent Security Council member Boris Gryzlov.

Putin’s web site published his opening comments. Ukraine a major topic of discussion.

Putin knows chances for resolving ongoing Donbass conflict diplomatically are slim at best.

Washington bears full responsibility. Deploring peace. Using its Kiev stooge government for war without mercy. Dirty war. Naked aggression.

Relying on Washington to help resolve things responsibly is futile, Putin believes. Especially when supplying Kiev with heavy weapons.

Training and directing its military. Provocatively deploying US forces increasingly closer to Russia’s border. Risking direct confrontation.

Putin said the following in part:

“We are witnessing a dramatic deterioration of the situation in southeastern Ukraine, in Donetsk People’s Republic and Lugansk People’s Republic.”

“(A) week ago…I sent a letter to the president of Ukraine. (A) written proposal to withdraw heavy weapons.”

(T)o such a distance from which it would be impossible to fire at populated areas.” Complying with “agreements reached in Minsk…”

“(T)his proposal almost completely coincided with the requirements of the official Kiev…So we suggested that weapons and heavy equipment be withdrawn to the line that Kiev authorities themselves consider fair and corresponding to” Minsk.

“Unfortunately, we received no clear answer to our proposal; in fact, we also saw the reverse action, namely the Kiev government has given an official order to launch large-scale combat operations along almost the entire perimeter of contact between the opposing sides.”

“The result: dozens of dead and wounded, and not only among servicemen on both sides, but, even more tragically, there has been loss of life among the civilian population, including children, the elderly and women.”

“The artillery, multiple rocket launchers and aircraft are firing indiscriminately, directly at densely populated areas.”

“All of this is happening to the accompaniment of propaganda slogans about the quest for peace and the search for those responsible.”

“The responsibility is borne by those who issue such criminal orders.”

“The people who do this should know that there is no other way to solve such conflicts but through peace negotiations and political means.”

“We often hear…this is their preferred method of addressing issues, but the reality is quite different.”

Putin called for a moment of silence. Honoring Donbas victims. He accused Kiev of issuing “criminal orders.”
