Putin Warns Western Elites Will 'Wreck Lives' of Their Own People with Sanctions

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that Western elites’ “sanctions fever” against his country will only hurt them and their people.

In a speech before the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, the Russian leader stressed, “no matter how much someone would like to isolate Russia, it is impossible to do this.”

Putin said the blowback from EU and US-led sanctions is wrecking lives in the West.

“Now we are seeing how production and jobs in Europe are closing one after another,” Putin said, emphasizing that this is happening as “Western elites, who would not, or even cannot acknowledge objective facts.”

Putin highlighted the Western elites’ inability to recognize the inevitable shift from a unipolar to a multipolar world – which is also the name for this year’s forum “On the Path to a Multipolar World.”), or away from “the world order that benefits only them, forcing everyone to live under the rules, which they invented and which they regularly break and constantly change depending on the situation,” he said.

Putin also stressed the elite’s “growing detachment” from the common people they claim to represent because they “would not, or even cannot acknowledge objective facts” about global changes.

Entire European populations face freezing to death this winter because their leaders have denied vital Russian energy because of the Ukraine invasion.

“The [coronavirus] epidemic has been replaced by other global challenges that threaten the entire world,” Putin told the Eastern Economic Forum in Russia’s Pacific port city of Vladivostok.

“Western elites’ sanctions fever”

“I’m referring to the West’s sanctions fever,” he said, criticizing “blatant and aggressive” attempts to “subjugate” countries that refuse to impose economic restrictions on Russia.

Putin also dismissed the widespread claims that Russia is using gas as an energy weapon, calling the allegations “nonsense.” The Russian leader said it is as simple as releasing the necessary parts for pipelines’ safe and proper functioning.

“Give us turbines and we’ll turn on Nord Stream tomorrow, but they won’t give us anything,” Putin told the audience, addressing headlines of an EU-mulled price cap on Russian oil and gas, calling the proposal “another stupidity.”

Putin suggested the dilemma is simple:

“There are contractual obligations and if there are any political decisions that contradict them, then we simply won’t fulfill them. We won’t supply anything at all if it contradicts our economic interests, in this case. We won’t supply gas, oil, coal or heating oil.”

Putin said he’s still “confident we haven’t lost anything and won’t lose anything [after invading Ukraine]. Our main gain is strengthening sovereignty.”

“Let them come to their senses,” Putin said.

“The EU authorities are denying European businesses accessible raw materials, energy and markets,” he added.

The Russian leader explained how soaring inflation and plummeting living standards would continue to be sacrificed to American interests until leaders come to their senses.

“It will be no surprise when the market shares of European businesses, both in the continent and globally, will be taken by their American patrons. When they pursue their interests, they don’t limit themselves or shy away from anything.”

Putin also addressed the status of the Nord Stream 2 Russia to Germany pipeline, which was halted before it became online amid the Ukraine invasion, saying Moscow remains “ready” to begin pumping gas through NS2 if the other side is willing.

“We are not building anything for no reason. We have received and perfected the necessary technology. We will turn on Nord Stream 2 if necessary,” Putin said.

In response to claims by the West that Moscow is using the gas pipeline as an energy weapon, Putin said, “Nonsense. We supply as much as our partners need – we fulfill whatever they put in the application,”

Putin also acknowledged the sizeable Chinese delegation at the event, saying, “I hope to see Xi Jinping in Uzbekistan soon.”

Russian energy giant Gazprom issued a provocative video aimed at Europe and what it can expect for the coming winter:

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
