Putin: Russia is in the process of doing something big? The world was stunned when Putin arrived in Mariupol, Ukraine
Vladimir Putin’s sudden visit to Ukraine and the region of Mariupol, which is currently under Russian occupation, has caused many arguments around the world. The Russian army had captured Mariupol only last year. His visit was organized after an arrest warrant was issued by the International Criminal Court. According to a statement issued by the Kremlin on Sunday, Putin arrived in Mariupol by helicopter. From here he toured the surrounding districts by car. The great thing was that Putin himself was driving the car.
A statement issued by the Kremlin said that Putin also stayed here for a short time to talk to the people of Nevsky. It was claimed that a man invited Putin to his home here. It is not yet clear when Putin met the man.
What is the purpose of Putin’s visit to Mariupol?
Putin’s visit to Mariupol is seen by Ukrainians as a provocation. Mariupol has long been a symbol of the Ukrainian resistance. The Russians faced heavy opposition from the Ukrainian army and people during their capture of the city. One of the fiercest battles of the Ukraine War was also fought in Mariupol. In such a situation, Putin has tried to make it clear through his visit to Mariupol that he is not in a mood to bow down, nor is his special military campaign going to stop. Putin has also tried to convey the message that Mariupol is now fully part of Russia. In such a situation, the Russian army is not going to retreat from this city at any cost.
What message did Putin give after reaching Mariupol?
Russian President Putin went to Mariupol and told the world that like Crimea, this city too has now become Russia’s. Putin driving his car through the streets of Mariupol and visiting people’s homes shows that he has accepted the city as part of Russia. In this situation, no amount of negotiation, agreement or pressure can free this city from Russian occupation. Putin arrived in Mariupol a day after the anniversary of the annexation of Crimea. Crimea came under Russian control in 2014. In such a situation, Putin’s aim is to tell the whole world how strong his decision is. Because there was a lot of pressure on Russia regarding Crimea.
America-NATO also showed the mirror
Putin’s move from Russia to the Ukrainian city of Mariupol shows that he is not afraid of anything. Two days ago, the International Criminal Court announced an arrest warrant against Putin. In this situation, Putin has shown that he is not afraid of such warrants by reaching Mariupol. This is a direct message to the US and NATO countries that are trying to encircle Russia. Putin has also tried to tell Russia’s enemies that they are not going to back down at all and that Russia’s military operations in Ukraine are not going to stop any time soon.
Strong warning for Ukraine too
Putin’s visit to Mariupol is also a stern warning to Ukraine to stop relying on the West. He cannot fight a war against Russia with the help of these countries. Putin tried to show that he annexed Crimea in 2014 and Mariupol in 2022. If Ukraine still does not improve, they may look to capture other cities with the intent of capturing them. As Putin knows, wars are always fought among themselves. Ukraine does not have the strength to withstand Russian aggression for a long time. In such a situation, Ukraine should immediately kneel down and accept every condition of Russia and eliminate the presence of NATO from its soil.
