As those concerned with Ukraine waited skeptically for April 16 peace talks among Ukraine, Russia, the European Union and the United States in Geneva, Russian President Vladimir Putin heated up the conflict, suggesting that he will not stop until Ukraine is destroyed as a sovereign nation.

He called Ukrainians and Russian one nation and threatened with a full-scale invasion of the Russian army.

An imperialistic mood was added by words the Kremlin’s chief propagandist, TV host Dmitry Kiseliov, who said he felt that Russia is being “suffocated by NATO,” and Putin’s joke that Russian won’t take Alaska back from the United States because it doesn’t need “one more cold territory.”

Here are the top 10 outrageous and remarkable remarks about Putin’s speech regarding Ukraine.

Who would have predicted back in the 1980s that by 2014 taxpaying Americans would prefer Putin to the POTUS?

That’s okay, I’m sure the Strong-Man loving sycophants here on Freep would LOVE to have Putin take over all of Eastern Europe again, then, who knows...maybe he’ll make the trains run of time!

The strong man to fear is the one that will rise from the European Union. Now that the once-sovereign nations of Europe have ceded their parliaments, courts and armies to Brussels, they will be powerless to halt the coming dictatorship. Today they are ruled by unelected bureaucrats, but tomorrow it will be a dictator. Russia is not the expansionist power in Europe today; it is NATO that is expanding to Russia's borders.

10. Putin confirms that annexation of Crimea was provoked by fears of NATO’s eastward expansion.
"When infrastructures of a military bloc approaches towards our borders, then it provokes some fears and questions... Of course, first of all, it was the support of residents of Crimea, but also some thoughts that if we do nothing at some moment based on the same principles, Ukraine will be dragged into NATO and we will be told: 'This is not you business' – and NATO ships will stay is Sevastopol, city of Russian maritime glory."

This is the point I've been making since the Russians annexed Crimea. Putin would have been derelict had he not protected Russia's strategic naval and air bases there. It was a defensive move on Russia's part, reacting the West-aided coup against his duly-elected ally in Kiev.
