Putin could talk about this in his state of the nation speech before the Russia election

What Putin will talk about in Moscow is still unclear.

The

Kommersant

daily reported that Putin would address the Ukraine war, Russia's war aims, the country's sovereignty, the economic and social situation and family values.

Putin regularly comments on all of the topics mentioned.

According to

Kommersant,

the speech is also likely to have an election campaign character.

The Kremlin chief traditionally avoids debates with other candidates. 

What time does Vladimir Putin's State of the Union speech start?

State news agencies such as TASS did not initially provide a time for the start of Vladimir Putin's speech.

According to a report by

Komsomolskaya Pravda (KP),

the show starts at 10 a.m. German time, which means 12 p.m. in Moscow.

According to KP

, Putin's appearance will be broadcast

by all Russian state broadcasters.

However, it is certain that Putin will be confirmed in office for the fifth time in the presidential election scheduled for March 15-17.

The opposition is not allowed in the election.

Putin's competitors support the Kremlin chief's policies and, from the point of view of government critics, only serve as a backdrop.

A look at the polls for the Russian election also shows that Putin has no reason to fear anyone.

Here is an overall alphabetical overview of the candidates for the 2024 Russia election:

candidate

Party/office/position

Nikolai Kharitonov

Duma deputy

Vladislav Davankov

Russian President Putin could speak about Transnistria at the State of the Union address

The breakaway Moldovan region of Transnistria could also become a topic at the state of the nation address.

The pro-Russian separatists ruling there met for a special congress the day before Putin's speech.

According to Russian media, they have asked for “protection” from Moldova.

Local opposition politician Gennady Chorba had previously said it was “very likely” that MPs from Transnistria would apply to join Russia.

Tschorba suspects that Putin could announce his acceptance of the proposal during his State of the Nation address.

Moldova has long feared that it will become Putin's next victim.

Putin gives his 19th state of the nation speech to parliament in Russia

The State of the Union Address is a constitutionally mandated annual duty of the President.

It will be Putin's 19th speech of this kind.

Putin last gave the State of the Union address in February 2023 and declared the suspension of the New Start nuclear disarmament treaty.

He skipped the speech in the first year of the war.
