Russian President Vladimir Putin today proclaimed the end of the unipolar world led by the United States despite the West’s attempts to preserve it “at all costs.”

The president took the opportunity to challenge the U.S. government, more than three months after its invasion of Ukraine.

That era “has ended despite all the attempts to maintain and preserve it at all costs. Change is a natural process of history,” Putin said during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

Putin accused the United States of believing itself to be “God’s messenger” after claiming victory in the Cold War following the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.

“After declaring victory in the Cold War, the United States proclaimed itself to be God’s messenger on Earth, without any obligations and only interests which were declared sacred,” he stressed.

Putin accused Western leaders of ignoring the “revolutionary and tectonic shifts,” which he considered irreversible.

“They [U.S.] seem to ignore the fact that in the past decades, new powerful and increasingly assertive centres have been formed. Each of them develops its own political system and public institutions according to its own model of economic growth,” he said.

“For example, they seem to believe that the dominance of the West in global politics and the economy is an unchanging, eternal value. Nothing lasts forever. Our colleagues are not just denying reality. More than that; they are trying to reverse the course of history. They seem to think in terms of the past century,” he stressed.

To explain the decline of the West, Putin assured that the United States has gone from being an exporting country to an importing economy.

Since the beginning of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, President Joe Biden has sent billions of dollars for armaments and humanitarian aid, however, the Russian army continues its military escalation.

The former Republican president, Donald Trump, has assured on several occasions that under his mandate Putin would not have dared to invade Ukraine.
