Putin prepares Russia for "eternal war" with the West


Although the invasion of Ukraine does not seem to be going according to plan, Russian President Vladimir Putin is at least determined to continue an "eternal war" with the West.

The Guardian reports that Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has expressed Putin's will to continue the war with the West.

"Things will become much more difficult. This will take a very, very long time," Peskov said.

More than a year into an invasion that, according to Russian planning, was supposed to last weeks, Vladimir Putin's government is putting society on a war footing with the West and bracing for a years-long conflict.

Speaking at length to workers at an aviation factory in the Buryatia region recently, Putin once again called the war an existential battle for Russia's survival.

"For us, this is not a geopolitical task, but a task of survival of Russian citizenship, creating conditions for the future development of the country and our children," the president said.
