Putin lets slip he was engaged in irrelevant verbiage

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that participants of the Valdai Discussion Club, a Moscow-based think tank and discussion forum, meeting in early October were engaged in "irrelevant verbiage"; ironically, Putin himself took part in the meeting.

Details: Putin explained the difference between the REN meeting audience and that of the Valdai Discussion Club forum.


Quote from Putin: "During the Valdai Club [meeting] I said… But here [at the REN meeting] we have a different audience, business people engaged in real work, not irrelevant verbiage. So I’ll repeat for this audience: the war in Ukraine started in 2014."
