The Russian resident was further quoted saying, "We (Russia) will never give up our love for the country, faith, traditional values, ancestral customs and respect for all peoples and cultures. As for the West, it seems to be determined to cancel these millennia-old values."

Putin pointed out that the US, particularly after the collapse of the Soviet Union, "started talking about its exceptionalism, which is humiliating for the entire world."

He also addressed Russian forces fighting in Ukraine and said they are fighting for the "Motherland, for its future, so that no one forgets the lessons of World War II."
