In a recap of the interview by the TikToker above, here are some key points to keep in mind in regard to their conversation:

  • Putin seemingly wants to negotiate for peace between Russia and Ukraine. He alleges that if the U.S. stops sending weapons to Ukraine the war could be over in weeks.
  • Putin almost reportedly ended the war with Ukraine months ago but Boris Johnson allegedly ruined the peace deal they had seemingly prepared.
  • Putin alleged that the CIA was responsible for blowing up the Nord Stream Pipeline.
  • Putin reportedly said the U.S. government is killing the U.S. dollar with all of the sanctions being placed on other countries. As Putin claims, many countries- including major oil producers- are supposedly accepting payments for oil in the Chinese Yuan.
  • Putin also reportedly told a story about how when Bill Clinton was president, Putin allegedly floated the idea of Russia joining NATO. When Bill Clinton claimed he would discuss the idea with his people and came back, Clinton supposedly said it was “not possible.”
