It is with that background one should regard the speech by Vladimir Putin at the Munich Conference on Security Policy. He declared he would speak frankly and did so. He was fiercely critical of the US and strongly defended the rights of states as opposed to rights of individuals. The view of the world was that of a leader who sees many enemies and talks of international structures, never values. Of course Russia is always seen as victimised. Revealing.
