Imperial Russia reminiscent of the Nazi's

The Vladimir Putin show: Strongman holds huge rally in front of thousands of 'Z' flag-waving Russians in World Cup stadium as he hails success of Ukraine 'special operation' and calls for 'a world without Nazism'

  • The pro-war event was held to mark the eighth anniversary of Russia's illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014
  • But Putin also spoke about the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which he maintains is a 'special operation' 
  • Ukrainian forces have mounted stiff resistance and the West has imposed sweeping sanctions on Russia
  • At one point in Putin's speech, the crowd could be heard chanting 'Russia, Russia, Russia'
  • Moscow police said more than 200,000 people were in and around the Luzhniki stadium for the rally 
  • The stadium played host to the 2018 World Cup final and has a capacity of 81,000 people
