Putin is despised by the Western media because he broke up the jamboree that allowed 6 Jew Oligarchs in the 1990´s to control 50% of Russia´s wealth and brought some honour back to Russia
Winning by stuffing ballot boxes. How is that restoring honour?

A poster who supports the suffering and death of millions and now has the brass neck to chastise others about 'honour'.

Pee Flynn, Lowry and Da Bert haven't a patch on you.

Oh now! Now I "support the suffering and death of millions". I guess you don't want to play the ball, just the man. Well I suppose that's all you can do really, because you certainly can't be seen to address the point made which was Winning by stuffing ballot boxes. How is that restoring honour?

Honour is being restored by beating Israel's Islamic Contras in Syria.

There are 93'000 media outlets in Russia.
27'000 newspapers.
330 television channels.

Less than a dozen are State owned.
It's like the National Socialist model of privately owned but govt controlled media. Life news.ru is a front for the intelligence services, which is why it shows forced confessions and also seems to be on the scene with the cops. The video of dollar notes at the supposed checkpoint attack in Ukraine for example - that was uploaded the previous day to when they said it happened.

He rejigged the electoral system so he now gets two thirds of seats with just 44% of the rigged vote - and that obtained by ballot box stuffing and reports of voters being bussed between polling stations. Ironically some of the box stuffing was caught on the state cctv cameras but is being denied. Suggests to me the sanctions are starting to erode his support.

Lovely. It doesn't take long for the Putinistas to show their nasty fascist side. An odious man adored by odious people with the ordinary Russian people suffering the consequences.

Can we just pretend Jeb Bush and Florida, Tory election fraud and Bernie and the DNC didn't happen and join the chorus to deliver "freedom and democracy" to Russia, the winter nights are drawing in and Clantard et al, would like to beat themselves off watching WWIII on Sky News.

You think the Russians would be better off back under a Yeltsin \ Western chaos?

The sad thing is you probably believe that. He gets under the skin of right thinking people because he is a sleazy thug who runs a kleptocracy that is slowly impoverishing his own people, rewarding well connected thuggish cronies and is pursuing a narrow nationalist agenda which is disrupting the peace in Europe. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Putin's_Russia Have a read of this book if you get a chance.
Terrible Muriel, he should desist from building Russian military basis so close to peace loving NATO countries.

Ye, remember I said you seem to inhabit another dimension, or words like that.

It's just when bemoaning other posters "fascism" its best not to include a sig featuring a fascist dictator :lol:

Poor ****

He should stop threatening and trying to undermine his neighbours. He can build, like any other country, on his territory where he likes.
He should stand by whilst all his allies and neighbours welcome NATO.


Sound foreign policy that :roll:

How about a free media, free elections and a genuine anti-corruption drive for starters. That would make them better off.
For us or Putin?

Disturbingly the Commies came 2nd, how can anyone still support an ideology that was responsible for the deaths of millions of people.
Says the devout Capitalist. Irony much?

Video of ballot box stuffing caught on the regimes own CCTV at 1.39. Separately in Dagestan, youths have destroyed a polling station they accuse of vote rigging. A voting fraud case has been opened in Rostov on Don.

Also note the photos of Putin inside the polling station.
