But he is making Russia more powerful and more competitive.... beyond the point where their sanctions can stop them.
The only power russia have is in the Russia military, but that power is useless if not used .
He allows any nation to strike russia ,to shutdown their planes ,hellicopters ,spy planes and do nothing
about it. Those s-300s and s-400 are totally useless if not used in syria . those planes and airforce are totally useless if not confront those attacking their allies.
So no , russia is not powerful ,but very very weak , and is putin the only one to blame for that.
Russia is so weak , that makes you feel sorry , for russian citizens and russian military ,that have to deal with that fool ,they have as president , that don't know how to defend their nation properly .
To see putin every week complain , how the west don't want dialogue , and how unfair they are ,
is sad to see . the only thing left he have not done ,is cry in cameras and beg the west to be their friend. that idiot in power will provoke a nuclear war , for his weakness . everyone is saying this.. even pro russian analyst in the west , like george gallaway and paul craig roberts ,that from time to time , are hired by TR news to talk ,are reprimanding putin for showing so much weakness to the west.
look this report.. paul craig robets , calling putin to stop being weak with the west.
Can War With Russia Be Avoided?
by :Paul Craig Roberts.
Considering the level of tension between the nuclear powers, the topic deserves far more attention that it receives. In the US it is a difficult topic to address. The President of Russia can call for better relations with the US without being demonized by the Russian media as an American agent, but when President Trump called for better relations with Russia, the US presstitutes denounced Trump as a Russian agent and launched the Russiagate hoax. Knowledgable American commentators who supported Trump’s call for better relations were labeled “Russian agents/dupes.”
My concern is that Washington’s hegemonic attitude prevents US acceptance of Russian sovereignty and that
Putin’s low-key responses to insults and provocations result in his warnings not being taken sufficiently seriously and encourages more insults and provocations. Washington could go too far and provoke a major confrontation that Putin cannot overlook.
Everyone is noticing putin is very insecure and his extreme poliness is a sympton of insecurity , he tries to manipulate the west with weakness , and that doesn't work , will never ever work ever.
with evil and bully people.
George gallaway that is also pro Russia and works for RT .told the same ,that putin needs to stop
being a coward and show some balls.. albeit he told it in a diplomatic way.
something like this.
"if putin expect that by appeasing the west , with nice behavior with people who only wants russian blood will work , then i urge him to reconsider his policies again. because will send the wrong message and will create the opposite of the security he wants. "
in other words , galloway told putin to grow some balls and stop being so nice with those killing
their army. so is embarrasing ,that even analyst that works at rt , have to reprimand putin ,so he stop being so insecure as weak as he is..
remember when the west shutdown the russian embassy , and stole their property , violated international laws ,lavrov recommended to recriprocrate exactly the same way ,but what putin did?
he fought back the west, with a christmas party ,inviting the american embassy to a major nice dinner . but a month later , he discovered , his response , did not worked and ended demanding americans to leave.. in the end , putin showed how stupid moron he is. he don't understand at all human relations , weakness does not works with bullies , and someone need to slap his face to remove all that cowardice and insecurity he have. or even better to demand he resign , and put a real leader on his place. .
