10:05 am
without any alternatives, are being imposed from one center. a root is that what's in there? let's bring in dw russia, analyst constantine edgar, who joins us from the lithuanian capital, vilnius constantine, good to see you. so a determined russian president vladimir putin speaking there. did he remain optimistic and defiant throughout? yes, absolutely. and i think about what the main, my main take away from the speech very long speech by the way, is that put in the really believes that economic sanctions imposed by the west on, on russia will not word because of those who come to bail. it's out, i think that she is convinced that a financial team is good enough to stave off the financial catastrophe and be that's going to be enough. investors, let's say from asia that will come and be allowed to rush in economy. and by the
10:06 am
way, speaking about the speech from a, it was very interesting how he repeatedly used this kind of traditional left wing post colonial discourse from western academia to the audience where there were a lot of people from china, india, basically from asia and africa, trying to basically please them with this kind of anti western pitch because of him will, will speak in a moment. the international community has condemned russia's invasion of ukraine. time and time again. german chancellor, all i show said on friday that it's absolutely necessary for leaders to speak directly with the russian president to end the war. so let's take a listen. what chance of shells have to say it is absolutely necessary to speak, to put in and i will continue to do so as the french president, but also, and there are some countries needed and some leaders needed that speak to him and it is necessary that they are clear because when i speak to put him,
10:07 am

10:08 am
