Zepp-LaRouche: Putin Delivers a New 'Sputnik' Shock—'Now They Will Listen to Us!'

by Helga Zepp-LaRouche, founder of the International Schiller Institute

In a trans-Atlantic atmosphere of hysteria against Russia and China that can only be understood as pre-war propaganda, President Putin dropped a bombshell in his annual State of the Union address which has redefined the strategic balance.
