Vladimir Putin? He decided to invade Ukraine because he was “induced” by internal pressures and from match Communist. This interpretation of the war unleashed by Russia against Kiev is of Silvio Berlusconiwho intervened remotely at the presentation of the candidates of Come on Italy in Veneto. Other than the absolute master of Russia, in short, the head of the Kremlin would be a conditioned politician who made a “wrong choice”. A sui generis reconstruction, to say the least, compared to the reports on absolute power that Putin demonstrates every day to enjoy, in general a justification of the dear distant friend who has decided to launch the attack on Ukraine. Berlusconi’s faith is unshakable: “Speaking of Russia, we wanted to express our regret for what happened in Ukraine. She was one decision wrongI know that Putin was forced by his Villagefrom her peopleby his men of the Communist Party to intervene to defend the Donbass republics fromUkraine from Yeltsin“. The error is obvious, Berlusconi would have liked to refer to the president of Kiev, Volodymyr Zelenskyinstead he tucked in the name of Boris Yeltsinwho was president of Russia from 1991 to 1999, before theit was Putin. Regardless of the gaffe, he continued: “Now Putin is found to have shown that his troops are not really the invincible army, he has had some sanctions that have increased far the poverty of his people. All our Western companies have left Russia and thousands and thousands of unemployed have been created ”. The international political scenario? “All of these things put an end to friendly relations that Russia entertained with Romaniawith the PolandWith the’HungaryWith the’Italy and with many European countries. Europe she was forced to rally around this decision to resist a Russian invasion for Ukraine which, according to them, was to last only two weeks. Instead it has been there for more than 200 days and we know that every day it causes civilian victims and more ”.
The Berlusconian soliloquy accompanied the presentation of Forza Italia candidates in a climate – behind the facade – not without discontent. For example, Anna Maria Berninileader of the Senate, had to justify why she was parachuted in Veneto from Bologna, instead of Maria Elisabetta Alberti Casellati, president of the Senate and second office of the state. “Since I am the evictor – she said with a smile – I would like to make sense of the act of generosity that President Casellati, number two of the party, wanted to do by enhancing a territory such as Basilicata, penalized by this electoral model. I took advantage of this act of generosity that the President of the Senate made ”. In short, the choice would have been of Casellati, not of Berlusconi’s magic circle, who winked at the Venetians: “You have shown that you can do many things with your strength, with your resources, without waiting for the state. For this the autonomy you have requested, even with a referendum that we have strongly supported, it is a right that you have earned with full merit. My commitment to the next government is to support the autonomy process in all locations and in all possible ways “.
A new entry among the candidates is Flavio Tosi, former Northern League and former mayor of Verona. In June, he managed not to have his successor, the lawyer, re-elected Federico Sboarinaexponent of Siblings of Italy. Tosi took the Forza Italia card between the first round and the second round and, by not siding with Sboarina, he determined his defeat..
