From a speech Putin gave were he says that Western elites started the Ukraine War to distract their people from falling living standards and poverty while Russia and China are fighting against the "dictatorship of supranational elites" to build a more democratic world.
"Thereby, they [the west] are trying with all their might to preserve the hegemony and the power that is slipping through their fingers; they are trying to keep the countries and people in the grip of a neo-colonial order. Their hegemony means stagnation for the whole world, for the whole of civilization, obscurantism and denial of culture, neoliberal totalitarianism.
They need conflicts to maintain their hegemony. That is why they prepared the fate of cannon fodder for the Ukrainian people, implemented the "anti-Russia" project, turned a blind eye to the spread of neo-Nazi ideology, to the mass murders of Donbas residents, pumped and continue to pump the Kyiv regime with weapons, including heavy weapons."
"Russia, together with its allies, partners and like-minded people, will improve existing international security mechanisms and create new ones, strengthen its armed forces and other security structures, take other steps to build a more democratic world, where the rights of all peoples and cultural and civilizational diversity are guaranteed."
