Putin's speech at the Valdai Club - full transcript

Colleagues, ladies and gentlemen, friends, it is a pleasure to welcome you to the XI meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club.

It was mentioned already that the club has new co-organisers this year. They include Russian non-governmental organisations, expert groups and leading universities. The idea was also raised of broadening the discussions to include not just issues related to Russia itself but also global politics and the economy.

US Visa Ban Punishes Hungary for Relations With Russia: Expert

Hungarian policy toward Western sanctions against Russia is one of the reasons why the United States has cancelled visas for several Hungarian officials, the head foreign policy editor of Hungarian newspaper Magyar Nemzet, Gabor Stier, said Wednesday.

"I am inclined to think that it is a punishment for the fact that we talk to Russia," Stier said at the Valdai International Discussion Club, referring to the recent US visa bans.
"Hungary's behavior in relation to the sanctions [against Russia] has been reserved. [Hungary] builds pragmatic relations with Russia," Stier said.

Results of Ukrainian Elections Show Hope for Western Aid Money: Former US Official

The number of elected parties into the new Ukrainian parliament possibly reflects hopes by the Ukrainian politicians to secure a part of Western aid money flowing into Ukraine, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Paul Craig Roberts told RIA Novosti.

"Both Poroshkenko and Yatsenyuk are Washington's stooges, and we can conclude that the Ukrainian people have elected Washington's candidates," Roberts said on Sunday. "It seems that Ukrainians concluded that the flow of aid into Ukraine depends on electing Washington"s candidates," he added.
Roberts stressed that Ukrainian parliamentary election "was about bringing foreign money to Ukraine."

Western countries have NEVER encouraged or valued any African economic development except taking advantage of Africa.

African people and their governments must assume their responsibilities as the guarantors of Africa's development for their own circumstances by taking charge to their own economies and natural resources with the creation of sustainable solutions backed by strong African institutions and responsible African people themselves.
