The real speech on 9 May was not in Moscow but in Strasbourg

After all, May 9th brought nothing new to the East. Contrary to what I read last week – that Putin was considering declaring war because he believed he would lose it – it was unclear to me that it would most likely be the opposite, namely that the Kremlin author did not intend to declare war precisely because you know. lose it. Unofficially, the state can declare war on terrorism, drug trafficking, even for an organized group of compatriots that it sees as rebels and that could, on a scale, constitute a civil war situation. However, and in general, sovereign states declare war on other sovereign states. As I have already emphasized, the concept of a ‘special operation’ refers to rapid action in an area whose sovereignty is considered to be limited. That is what Putin believes Ukraine is.
