Putin derided a “cosmopolitan” Western elite seeking to dominate the rest of the world, using an annual foreign policy speech to try to sway global public opinion.

Putin insisted that Russia did not fundamentally see itself as an “enemy of the West.” Rather, he said — as he has before — that it was “Western elites” that he was fighting, ones who were trying to impose their “pretty strange” values on everyone else.

Putin coupled his denial of any nuclear plans in Ukraine with a bid for global support — including from conservative-minded people in the West who, he insisted, back Mr. Putin’s campaign to preserve “traditional values.”

“In the United States there’s a very strong part of the public who maintain traditional values, and they’re with us,” Mr. Putin said. “We know about this.”

Lawmakers in Russia’s lower house of Parliament backed legislation on Thursday that would ban the “propaganda” of homosexuality in all aspects of public life, expanding a directive that currently only applies to media directed at children.

    I love it when people actually believe what Vlad makes public.

    In the real world... This sounds like pedojoe going after Trump family. "State Security" looking for someone that doesn't like the corruption going on.

    "Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Russian journalist and former TV personality Ksenia Sobchak - the daughter of Vladimir Putin's ex- boss - has fled Russia for Lithuania. She escaped Russia following a raid on her home by Russian authorities.

    "Without any doubt, she is [in Lithuania] ... I confirm the fact," Lithuanian counterintelligence service head Darius Jauniškis told a local radio station Thursday morning.

    He said Sobchak entered Lithuania on an Israeli passport that allows her to stay for 90 days. Her late father Anatoly Sobchak was the former mayor of St. Petersburg.

    According to Russian media, Sobchak left Russia Tuesday night by crossing the Belarus-Lithuania border. Her escape came after tricking Russian authorities by buying plane tickets from Moscow to Dubai via Istanbul.

    According to the Moscow Times, Russian authorities were planning to arrest Sobchak at Moscow's Vnukovo Airport, but she evaded them by crossing into Belarus on her way to Lithuania.

    The Russian Tass state news agency reported that Russian security services had an order to arrest Sobchak as part of an extortion case against her media director Kirill Sukhanov.

    "It is clear that it's an attack on my editorial team, the last remaining free editorial team in Russia which had to be pressured," Sobchak said on Telegram.
