- he did it & got $Bs in offshore assets from his nations' resources.
Iran has billions in offshore assets and so does Venezuela... and the west has frozen and seized those assets easily enough...
Why would they not do the same with Putins billions?
Unless they don't exist...
-he may just look clean but the RF is now in mud, no matter how many $Bs he laundered & political opponents/protesters he jailed &/ killed.
Laundering money is a process of turning illegally gotten gains into money you can prove is yours... in Putins case you are producing no evidence of either.
.- but Putin's Russia isn't different! Let's see what he does with Navalny & his FBK.
Putin is not doing anything to Navalny, Navalny is being processed by the Russian court system based on Russian laws that Navalny seems to think don't apply to him. There is no need for Putin to get involved at all.
If Putin really wanted him dead are you trying to say he couldn't have had him killed years ago?
Is the all powerful Putin so weak?
The fact is that despite all your bullshit and the bullshit from western media, Navalny is nothing... politically and economically he is no threat to Putin or Russia... he is a clown the west pulls out as the opposition in Russia yet in Russia he is a joke.
Putin should have FSB agents follow him around protecting him from the west because he is worth more alive for Putin than dead, and for the west he would be more valuable dead than alive...
Well it is not his so I don't see why he would go there... publicity or not... but the publicity is western and really does not effect his ratings as president of Russia.-FYI, he went there at least 4 times ,
Dude... your source is Medusa... a company working from... Riga in Latvia... the io country code of its website is British Indian Ocean Territory... yeah... come on... please... I must admit... scrolling down that page there were no swastikas or other nazi symbols, but all the hate was there... damn Russians stopping them from getting their living space in the east...
his ratings will go down with ongoing protests , affecting his party on the next Duma election.
His ratings as told by the Guardian newspaper in the UK... excellent selection choice for sources there... Bellingcat too busy was it?
- as it's for him & his close circle to use, while the $B being wasted there could be used for the benefit of the ordinary Russians.
As posted above it is not his and never was.
- it should be up to the independent courts to issue a verdict, not the riot police & his pocket judges!
It is funny that the west claims Putin controls the courts in Russia but when the court makes decisions they don't like they demand Putin step in and change the decisions... like Pussy Riot and this fuckwit.
He will get what is coming to him.
-watch the prev. & new videos with CC & authotranslate again. $Ms, if not $Bs were taken out of Russia.
Bill Browder took billions himself on his own... there is no question lots of money and resources were stolen, which explains the hate directed towards Putin because he effectively stopped that... that is how he turned Russia around to what it is today.
The Clintons loved Yeltsen... they made a lot of money when he was in charge and that is why they hate Putin so much... he turned off the free money taps.
For some reason Putin thought all Russians should benefit from the resources of Russia... that is communism don't you see... In America and all the countries they impose their rules on someone can buy the mineral rights to ground and strip it of billions of dollars in oil or diamonds or gold and actually pay the land owners very little for the access to that mineral wealth... a few truck drivers earn good money for a decade but at the end of the day it is a few people who make billions, the land is ruined and those who made the billions move on to the next strike.
Putin said no.
Pretty sure I said in my last post that links without descriptions are not allowed on this forum... last warning.
- all those big infrastructure /industrial projects got the oligarchs super rich.
You need money for big infrastructure and industrial projects, and companies doing legitimate contracts to rebuild a country should be getting rich... that is the honest and legitimate way of getting rich.
Rebuilding a country after it had been brain drained and asset stripped only qualifies as evidence of corruption by the west...
The British, Japanese & French built them too in India, Korea, China & Vietnam but got out more in profits, impoverishing & killing a lot more people than they uplifted.
Those three empires brutalised the third world and enriched themselves in doing so, there is no comparison to Russia rebuilding itself and cutting off the chains the west was busy trying to build into the new Russia so they could continue to milk her for money and resources for decades to come.
others did, & I posted those sources.
Sources from Baltic states and the UK rag media are not sources, they are propaganda sites...
she was not thinking clearly, & no1 pressured her to decide to press charges after she got better.
She said herself she forgave him because it was the Christian thing to do... so now what... she has lost her religion?
Or maybe someone has told her being a martyr to Putin pays good money from western idiots.
-no, it's really a Putin's court.
If it was then the original sentence for stealing 400K dollars would have been done in prison with hard labour for being such a tool of the evil west.
-only a small fraction of them
Using children is despicable... it seems to be a western thing these days with that afghan girl and that stupid greta poo face climate change little bitch.
- not true; even if so, the FSB new his whereabouts at all times, so it's not an excuse to claim that he was hiding & was on a run.
It is not up to the FSB to get him to his appointments, it was a requirement of his sentence. He didn't show up when he was supposed to therefore he violated his parole and now he is facing the consequences.
Also, to use trains & planes, he had to show his internal passport, so the transportation security/police also knew about all his travels & could stop him from going anywhere.
That is a matter for the courts... they gave him every opportunity to do as he was required and he chose not to, so now after being in Germany they picked him up at the border and as he is clearly a flight risk he is in custody and will remain so until he is tried again.
His behaviour will count against him and they wont be so nice this time around hopefully.
-the referendum on it was also rigged.
The Guardian and the New York Times? Two organisations that benefitted greatly from the news Snowden and Assange gave them but they turned on both their sources in a heartbeat... you know... like all good reporters who protect their sources with their honour and their lives... NOT.
the US has 2x more population.
Regardless, the number counted as poor in Russia has reduced 12 fold... how is America coping?
As James Petras explains in a current Eurasian Review article: “The Western media has backed every oligarch, gangster and fraudster who has gone on trial and been convicted during Putin’s term in office. The propagandists tell us the reason for this affinity between the Western media and the gangster-oligarchs is that these convicted felons, who claim to be ‘political dissidents’ and critics of Putin’s rule, have been dispossessed, and jailed for upholding ‘Western values’.
Yeah, western values are stealing resources and money, that is why they support Russian criminals, and why they demonise Putin because he is not a criminal.
Please.... the Moscow Times... the NYT and the Guardian have years of being total
, but the MT is just a bunch of US educated pussies pretending to be journalists.
I wont bother. You'll just pick up the next headline from the propaganda sheets.
I fully understand... these cultists are frustrating... prove them wrong and it changes nothing... not internal reflection... no realisation that what you think you know could be wrong and you are making a fool of yourself.... nah... this is just a game, so next talking point on the list as printed by the US state department or some UK intel agency, and go full speed ahead...
The sad thing is when he makes a good point or says something that is true I am probably not going to believe him...
