On the evening of Friday, September 30, Vladimir Putin delivered a speech at a rally-concert dedicated to the signing of agreements on the entry of new regions into Russia. The President reminded the participants where modern Ukraine came from.
– I can’t help but remember how the Soviet Union was formed when Russia was creating modern Ukraine. It was Russia that created modern Ukraine, transferring significant territories there, the historical territories of Russia itself along with the population, the president said.
The Russian leader said that before the residents of Nezalezhnaya no one asked where and with whom they want to live, “how they want to arrange the future of their children, in which state.”
– And with the collapse of the Soviet Union, the same thing happened. The elites decided everything among themselves, millions of ordinary citizens no one asked about anything, the head of state concluded.
– And only now, only modern Russia has given people living in the Lugansk People’s Republic, Donetsk, Zaporozhye, Kherson the right to choose. People came to the referendum and made this choice – to be with their historical homeland, with Russia! Putin said. The protesters applauded in response.
In the end, the president assured that Russia “not only opens the doors of our native home for our brothers and sisters, it opens its heart to them.”
– Welcome home! exclaimed the Russian leader.
