Western hegemony means stagnation for the whole world, obscurantism and neoliberal totalitarianism, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in his address to the participants and guests of the X Moscow Conference on International Security.

“They [Western elites] are trying with all their might to preserve the hegemony and power that is slipping out of their hands, they are trying to keep countries and peoples in the grip of a neo-colonial order. Their hegemony means stagnation for the whole world, for the whole civilization, obscurantism and the abolition of culture, neoliberal totalitarianism, — he said.

According to the president, the collective West is deliberately destroying the system of European security, “putting together more and more new military alliances.” “In words, this is hypocritically declared to be a need to strengthen security in Europe, but in reality, just the opposite is happening,” — he pointed out.

At the same time, the proposals on mutual security measures put forward by Russia last December “were simply once again ignored,” the head of state emphasized.

After the start of the special operation in Ukraine, the goals of which Putin called the protection of the inhabitants of Donbass from “genocide by the Kyiv regime,” Western countries have already imposed several packages of sanctions against Russia. The restrictions also affected the top officials of the state, financial and industrial enterprises, as well as about half of the international reserves of the Central Bank.

Putin has repeatedly accused Western countries of illegitimate sanctions and called the restrictions “insane”. According to him, only the direct losses of the European Union “from the sanctions fever” for the coming year may exceed $400 billion. added by the president.

In addition, Putin is not the first time calling for the abandonment of the “unipolar world” imposed by the United States. At the end of July, he noted that “the model of the total domination of the” golden billion ” unfair because it divides peoples “into the first and second grade”, and therefore “is racist and neo-colonial in its essence.” “No matter how the Western and so-called supranational elites try to preserve the existing order of things, a new era is coming, a new stage in world history, and only truly sovereign states can ensure high growth dynamics,” — the president pointed out.
