Putin offers few clues in Victory Day speech
Amanpour
May 9, 2022

In perhaps the most anticipated Victory Day parade in recent memory, Russian military might was on full display this morning in Moscow. But President Vladimir Putin, while defiant, delivered a short speech without declaring victory in Ukraine, or formally declaring war and mass mobilization, or indeed any battlefield plans. Instead, Putin again defended his actions and again claimed that he had no other choice. Andrei Kozyrev has unique insight into the Kremlin leadership, having served as the Russian Federation's first foreign minister in the 1990s.
