Proletarian Puncher of Steaks
Well. Lets be honest here, Putin could get 1% of the vote and be the legally elected president because no one would have the balls to insinuate otherwise. Mans a dictator, but one with a democratic facade.For starters, regime is in your country. Putin is legally elected president of Russian Federation.
The Ukraine *might* disagree with you here.I do not observe any such attempts, and regarding Russian government's conduct, it's certainly more rational and less confrontational than for example US government's. I especially dislike the strong ideological tones of rationale behind West's confrontation with Russia, that's the old USSR just in the opposite direction.
You see, I was writing about propaganda, and you ask me a question that's just loaded with it. It's obvious that we see reality very differently.
As would Georgia. And more recently Belarus. Putin doesn't want the whole former Soviet, but hes carving his own sphere of influence when everyone else is looking the other way.
It is, if Georgia and Ukraine are to be looked at, at least partially true.I hope that was shade at the media, because that is some pathetic conspiracy-tier fearmongering. Lame!
