So the moderator of the interview session of Putin at the St. Petersburg Economics Forum is a full blown 5th column scumbag.
Putin noted that the "Capitol Hill insurrection" was just demonstrators unhappy with the clear problems during the election. Over 450
people were arrested and 100 of them are being subjected to criminal prosecution for attempted overturn of government.
(Meanwhile Russia gets lectured about "democracy" when some grifter clown like Nahalny does not win the presidential election.
None of Nahalny's protestors is facing criminal prosecution. Nahalny is facing the music for his real crimes that predate any
NATzO sponsored political activism on his part.)
The moderator then laid into Putin for supposedly supporting the "insurrection" in the Washington and "risked" being banned by
social media. Putin essentially said he could care less if some western social media blocked him or any Russian government
account. People love to bitch that Putin is some tyrant. But here you see some worm practically spitting in his face at a public
forum. In real tyrannies there are no such "moderators" of "journalists" pushing foreign propaganda narratives.
what you talking about ?
Russia is not a democracy by any means or stretch of the imagination . There is no freedom of expression in Russia , you can be arrested for promoting gay rights in public . putin also by his finger can remove governors in russia , from people elected democratically if he don't like them . his power over russia is at the level of kim jon un in north korea. he can replace the government , the prime minister as he did with medvedev , he can replace ANYONE from the government he wants ,and replace it with anyone of his choice.. there is also censorship in russia for speaking badly about putin , you can go to jail for just insulting Putin. is that a democracy for you?
on top they can censor any media and censor any religion not approved by the state. and this have nothing to do with extremism , because they have no problems with muslim in caucasus of 60 year old ,to marry with 12 year old teen. In Russia kidnapping and rape is legal against women , if they are muslim and both families agree with this.
so you show just pure ignorance of what Russia really is. For the only reason people think russia is a democracy is because there are elections every 4 years , but whats the point if they disqualify the opposition from participating?
Russia is not a democracy , not a freedom of expression nation ,neither there is freedom of religion , and the president is the law , he can replace anyone by the finger , whether they were elected legally or not
So putin is just a two steps behind from becoming a tyrant and what makes the difference , between a tyrant and putin , is that until now he is not killing people , it seems , at least , but eventually that idiot will go there .. to hold power if someone radically different to that moron , is about to get power to replace him.
im not a fan of navalny , but navalny is not popular in russia , never he was and he is not the one destroying the nation , but putin is. if russia ever collapse it will be 100% to blame on putin and only on him. because that idiot have absolute power over everything in russia , he can replace anyone as easy as 1 2 3 over night ,and put them in jail if they insult him.
your terribly uneducated.. and brainwashed too , with that idiot .
A president that can't handle criticism is not a leader . but an insecure and incompetent idiot .
and this is what putin is . In the west , there was a democracy in the past , for more than 200 years , at least when it comes to freedom of expression , and all this freedoms are being systematically being removed since 2001 inside job terror attacks and now during this new pandemic event.
The west is moving away from freedom and democracy , and russia under putin , never truly had
a real democracy , but more like a cult , to putin . Russia is becoming another north korea , populist nation ,with midget insecure president ,that can't handle criticism , reason why is illegal in the law and people can face jail ,for insulting putin.
In short , Putin's rule Russia like an entry level tyrant , he by the hand can choose who will government and the budget of the entire nation , he have the last word. The laws in russia are written to accomodate that idiot desires , so just 1 man ,can change the constitution in russia.
and over extend his own powers and rule forever if he desire, what kind of crap is that ?
is that is not a dictator and tyranny , then no idea what is .
Russia is a third world nation culture ,with third world economy ,based on gas stations and commodities and with an entry level dictatorship that is become worse and worse by the time he continue holding power. , run by one of the most insecure and incompetent president in russia in history . Only lenin and gorvashev were worse , but eventually he will surpass them , when that moron provoke a war with the west , for being so weak and incompetent , he will sooner or later he will provoke a war , for refusing to draw a clear line to the west.
Russia have no future with that idiot in power , only thing can save russia , is that china becomes the leader of new world business and or europe divorcing from the west and becoming neutral ,effectively not allowing US to continue breaking Russia.
So don't complain for the 5th column in russia . what you need to complain is for the lack of influence and leadership of the president . because everyone can be influenced , and if putin is so incompetent to not understand how to influence a significant number of his young generations of voting age , then is because he is a failure as a leader , a failure as an influencer . leaders job is not to micromanage things and putin does all thetime. leaders job is to influence society , to follow their lead.
this is why putin is losing elections in cities to the liberals , he is very outdated president and highly insecure and doesn't know how to influence them. Russia needs a leader with a true vision for the modernization of the economy of the nation , that understand the new generations .
