Putin wants the West not even try to cross the red line with Russia

On Wednesday, April 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered his Address to the Federal Assembly. In the speech, Putin annually expresses his assessment of the state of affairs in the country and his vision of the main tasks for the future. 
Today’s speech became Putin’s 17th Address to the Federal Assembly. Putin, who was vaccinated against the coronavirus, appeared for the speech in person, but there were restrictions imposed at Moscow’s Manezh, where the event was held.
Usually, about 1,000 guests are invited to the ceremony – deputies, senators, members of the cabinet, representatives of the presidential administration, heads of the Prosecutor General’s Office, Constitutional and Supreme Courts, heads of regions, etc. This year the number of guests has been reduced, and the venue has been sanitized.
