State Department: It's absurd for Putin to talk about defense war


The United States has said in a statement that Russian President Vladimir Putin had earlier said that Russia was “invading Ukraine” for “precautionary reasons”.

“Talking about defense energy is blatantly absurd, talking about anything other than pre-planned war is an ‘insult to historical truth,'” said Ned Price, a spokesman for US diplomacy.

The spokesman was responding to a speech by Putin on the morning of May 9, the anniversary of the former USSR’s victory over Nazi Germany in 1945.

“It’s an insult to those who have lost their lives and to those who have fallen victim to this unreasonable oppression,” Price said, referring to Putin’s statements.
