Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Ukraine allegedly did not return the foreign assets of the former Soviet Union to the Russian Federati.

He spoke about this in the propaganda film “Russia. Recent History”, which aired on the pro-government TV channel “Russia 1”, reports “Interfax-Russia”.

“In 1993, we took upon ourselves the obligation to pay off all the debts of the former Soviet Union, for all the former Soviet republics, in the expectation that these republics will transfer the foreign assets of the former Soviet Union to us. We repaid our debts for everyone, but not all of them have fulfilled this. an obligation to transfer foreign assets to us. For example, Ukraine has not yet done this, “the Russian president said.

According to him, Russia has fully repaid its debts to the London and Paris clubs of creditors ahead of schedule.

“It was profitable for us to pay off debts ahead of schedule, because we saved on interest. If we paid off in accordance with the repayment plan, we would have to pay $ 14 billion as interest, otherwise we just saved them,” the President of the Russian Federation emphasized.

Recall that US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, discussing the alarming movement of Russian troops towards the Ukrainian border, confirmed Washington’s fears about Vladimir Putin’s probable intentions to restore the Soviet Union.

Earlier, the  head of the Pentagon Lloyd Austin expressed concern  about the “attack on Ukraine by the Soviet Union” : “Everything we do will be done jointly with the international community. At best, we will not see the invasion of the Soviet Union into Ukraine.”

Putin’s approval of the Soviet Union is no secret to the international community. During his presidency, the Russian Federation began to rapidly cultivate the legacy of the USSR and individual “red” figures.

European governments are worried about the Kremlin’s attempts to rewrite world history,  keeping silent about the crimes of the Soviet occupation . Thus, French President Emmanuel Macron in February 2020 accused the head of the Kremlin of trying to rewrite the history of World War II.

In a  propaganda article published in July 2021, Putin called Russians and Ukrainians “one people”, allegedly referring to a common history, language and faith.

In Europe, both Nazi Germany and the Bolshevik USSR are considered aggressors – according to the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. In Moscow, they say that the pact allowed the USSR to delay the start of the Nazi invasion and prepare the army for war.

Bild,  in a March 2018 article, noted that Vladimir Putin had revived the Stalinist cult in Russia. Russian historiographers do not seem to notice the victims of the bloody dictator, but only praise his “heroic deeds”.

In Russia, the murder of the Cossacks, the persecution and resettlement of national minorities, the Holodomor in Ukraine initiated by Soviet Moscow, the executions, torture and imprisonment of representatives of the clergy and creative intelligentsia in the Gulag are hushed up.

  1. The debts were theirs if they claim they are the successors to the USSR.

    Likewise, it was them who decided to rack up those debts.

    I think allowing the rent free use of Crimea between 1991 and 2014 is more than adequate repayment.

  2. Logic would suggest that there has to be some limit to the depths of depravity, deviousness and sheer evil of this malignant troll dictator, but he keeps on coming up with stuff that demonstrates that it is bottomless.

  3. Russia declared to be the successor of the former Soviet Union, by this Moscow did not only inherit the USSR’s seat in the UN Security Council but also the debt of the state it claimed to be the successor of. Kyiv nevertheless paid with 14.000 dead citizens, lost Crimea and ongoing occupation in Donbas.

  4. What about the countless Ukrainians that died in the hands of mafia land? How can a price ever be set for that? While this little nasty rodent talks bullshit about Ukraine and acts like a hurt little girl, the dragon below his belly is the true danger. Putin is blissfully asleep in this regard and bat virus land will one day strike. I have an old bottle of Scotch just waiting for this day to be popped.
