Russian President Vladimir Putin admitted that he himself could hardly listen to his entire message to the Federal Assembly. He mentioned his speech in an interview with war veterans on Defender of the Fatherland Day, he is quoted by TASS. The video is published by the Kremlin "Pool No. 3".
“You said about the message. You know, of course, it's very hard to listen to everything. It's almost two hours there. I myself would probably have difficulty listening to all this if I had to listen. Saying is easier than listening."
Putin devoted almost the entire message to the United States, the West and NATO, which, in his opinion, unleashed the war. The Insider collected five fakes from his speech.
