ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) - Multipolarity is the most important point of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s speech at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), Venezuelan Vice President Jose Felix Rivas Alvarado told Sputnik on the SPIEF sidelines.
“It seems to me that one of the most important points in Putin’s speech was his view of the world, that one must not only look to the West, look for the West, as has been the case for centuries, but also make a turn and see that the East also exists," he said.
Rivas Alvarado argued that this is how one can understand the multipolar world order.
“This is how we can understand multipolarity, the construction of which seemed impossible. It seemed that there was only one road for development, one road for progress, which sometimes led to destruction,” the vice president said.
He also mentioned another important point in the Russian leader's speech: the development of unique national projects.

At the concluding press conference of SPIEF-2024, Anton Kobyakov, Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation and responsible secretary of the organizing committee, elaborated on Vladimir Putin's statements regarding the major shift of the global political landscape away from US diktat:

The President of Russia has called on national forces worldwide to strengthen their sovereignties and develop their own national economies. There is confidence that a multipolar world will be able to defend its economic and political sovereignty and prevail over the unipolar structure subordinate to the American sovereign, as never before
