What we heard on March 1 [Putin’s state of the nation address] is, perhaps, a scientific and technical version of the Munich speech [Putin’s speech in Munich in 2007]. This is a technological Munich speech. And how should we name the missile [next-generation cruise missiles unveiled by Putin]? It can be called “The Peacemaker”, for example. Because its purpose is to save peace. This is peace.
On a tactical level, our overseas opponents staked on the maximum drop in turnout and delegitimization of the results of the voting on March 18. They even set specific “planks”: to recognize turnout only at the level of no more than 45 percent.
Conspiracy theory, no evidence given. Neither the US nor the EU stated their wish to reduce or assess the turnout in Russia’s presidential elections to below 45 percent.
