Putin's Promised 6pm Address 'Declaring War' FAILS To Happen’

Russian President
Vladimir Putin was expected to give a speech at 6pm London time
from Moscow potentially announcing the official declaration of war in Ukraine
to defend Russian-occupied territories, but kept the world waiting on Tuesday
night.

Russian news channel that
announced the speech deleted their posts around two hours after the Russian
leader was set to begin what would have been his first international
announcement since the country’s invasion of Ukraine on February 25.

It appeared as though the
Russian leader had canceled his speech, pushing it back to Wednesday,
according to a Telegram account run by political analyst Sergei Markov, close
to the Kremlin.

‘They can’t even mobilize a
speech,’ said one observer, mocking the apparent cancellation.

‘Rumour has it that Putin’s
speech has been delayed due to his long walk from the end of the table to the
press room,’ joked another.

The speech will take place at
6am London time (8am Moscow time) on Wednesday, according to Forbes Russia,
which cited two sources allegedly from the Kremlin administration saying the
speech will be broadcast ‘when the Far East wakes up’.

The news comes after Dmitry
Medvedev, a staunch Putin ally, vowed that ‘all forces of self-defense’ will be
used to protect what he called ‘Russian territory’ — hinting at an
escalation in Ukraine.

Moscow’s parliament then
passed new laws paving the way for Putin to end his ‘special military
operation’ and officially declare war, allowing him to mobilize Russia’s
massive population into the army.

The move could herald a new
phase of the conflict involving weapons and tactics the Kremlin has so far held
in reserve.
