Putin tells Russians on Victory Day that world is at turning point

May 9 (Reuters) - On the eve of Russia's commemoration of the nation's victory over Nazi Germany in World War II, 

President Vladimir Putin told Russians that the world was at a critical turning point and that they were engaged in a patriotic struggle for their country's future.

"Today, human progress is again at an unequivocal defining moment

A genuine conflict has been released against our country. "We will protect the residents of Donbas, we will ensure our security,

we have repulsed international terrorism," Putin stated as the nation commemorated the victory over Nazi Germany in World War Two.

In a 10-minute discourse on Red Square, Putin rehashed natural messages he has conveyed commonly in the almost 15 months of Russia's conflict in Ukraine.

He claimed that "Western globalist elites" were planting Russophobia and aggressive nationalism, and that the Ukrainian people had become "hostages to a state coup" and the West's goals.

He didn't address the difficulties confronting Russia as its powers plan for a normal significant counter-hostile by Ukraine, or blueprint any way to triumph.

Following a series of strikes inside Russia this month, including a alleged drone attack on the Kremlin citadel itself less than a week ago, the speech was followed by a massive military parade across Red Square.
