Vladimir Putin - Russian politician.

Born on October 7, 1952 in Leningrad, now St. Petersburg. Prez today accused the United States of dragging out the Ukrainian conflict and seeking to "destabilize" the world through the recent visit to Taiwan by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, AFP reported.

"The situation in Ukraine shows that the United States seeks to prolong the conflict. And it acts in the same way, igniting the potential for conflict in Asia, Africa, Latin America," Putin said in an address to the International Security Conference in Moscow.

"The American adventure towards Taiwan is not just the trip of an irresponsible politician, but part of a deliberate, conscious strategy aimed at destabilizing and bringing chaos to the situation in the region and the world," he continued.

Beijing decided to take action against Pelosi

This is a "shameless demonstration of disrespect for the sovereignty of other countries and their international commitments," Putin said, criticizing what he called a "carefully prepared provocation."

Russia's special military operation in Ukraine is being conducted entirely in accordance with the UN charter.

Its goals are clearly defined - to guarantee the security of Russia and Russian citizens, to protect the inhabitants of Donbas from genocide, Putin said, quoted by TASS.
