Already after the official part of the awarding of stars Heroes of Russia in the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin talked with the awardees in an informal setting – over a glass of champagne. This is a tradition.
Here the awardees themselves were also laconic. Therefore, the head of state had to take the initiative into his own hands.
– It was said here, and I said now, that the Motherland is, first of all, people. And we should always remember this, Putin. – First of all, we do it for people. And we must be internally confident that we are doing it with dignity.
The President also spoke about the information war being waged against Russia. Fakes should not affect the performance of the tasks of the special operation:
– People who need protection – they understand that you are the last hope. All the nonsense of information confrontation, information stuffing, fakes should stay aside, should not prevent us from fulfilling our duty to our people. And you don’t have to be particularly sophisticated in this information confrontation to understand what is really happening.
Putin explained and attacks on the energy infrastructure of Ukraine. We do this in response to actions against us, the president said.
– Who started? Who hit the Crimean bridge? Who blew up the power lines from the Kursk nuclear power plant? Who does not supply water to Donetsk? Not supplying water to a city of millions is an act of genocide. No one ever said a word about it. Generally! Silence full! We just need to move, do something in response – noise, din, crackling all over the Universe. This will not interfere with our combat missions. And I want to thank you for the fact that you and your comrades are doing this in the most worthy way.
Will stop separately Putin at work aviation:
– Aviation works very well. On combat duty almost around the clock. Shows himself very effectively. Everything is done on time and very well done. And attack aircraft are fighting perfectly, and “Sushki” – Su-34, Su-35 – excellent weapons. Just great. It makes a significant contribution to the effectiveness of troop operations.
Well, a series of congratulations on the upcoming new year has begun. Despite the fact that it was only December 8, Putin congratulated the awarded heroes. It was at the very end, when the president was already saying goodbye to them.
– Happy New Year to you. It is unlikely that we will see each other before the New Year. The very best greetings to all your colleagues, comrades in combat,” the Russian leader said.
