    If Putin is a tyrant, why does he invite foreign journalists to the Kremlin and answer personal questions?

    By contrast, Joe Biden can't even take questions from his own journalists and openly admits that he isn't supposed to take questions or hold press conferences without approval from his handlers

    Opinion polls by western funded outfits like the Levada Center routinely show that public opinion translates into ballot box
    results in Russia. The claim of tyranny is inane NATzO hate propaganda. Biden "won" the 2020 election through electoral
    fraud. There is no way in Hell he got 81 million votes. Look at all the previous US presidential elections including the one
    in 2016. Such a vote is a total outlier. This is confirmed by the obvious ballot stuffing in the form of 100% pro-Biden
    mail in ballot injections in the predawn hours in many districts. There were tens of thousands of such ballots that did not
    even have real addresses and living names associated with them that were identified. Millions more have never been
    validated.

    The NATzO fake stream media is in no position to evaluate Russian democracy. It cannot produce a single argument why
    Putin should leave office. Term limits are an American thing. In Canada and the UK there are no term limits. Putin is
    popular because he has delivered on resurrection of the standard of living of Russians by resurrecting its economy. Of
    course military power goes together with this.

    I recall one Canadian "journalist" claim that "change is a good thing". Why? Because it serves the interests of his bosses?
    I don't see much change in Canada for the decades that I have been a voter. My vote is a placebo.

    Seriously, who is waiting to embrace our "western" values?.
    with the LGBTQ package included.

    This same decadence and erosion of all moral values doomed the Eldar race in 40K. lol1
    Im sure Slaanesh is looking upon the West favourably.

    Anyway, Putin does what he needs to do.
    I never heard putin warmongering against europe.
    He just points out what the problems are and he is right in his standpoints.

    The headlines say: ''A fifth of the Dutch think Putin is pretty cool.
    A fifth of the Dutch can live with the conservative values and national pride currently propagated by Vladimir Putin. There is also an understanding that the Russian leader is fighting a sphere of influence in the neighbouring countries of Ukraine and Belarus.''

    Putin:

    I do not blame those who have a villa in Miami or on the French Riviera, who cannot do without foie gras, oysters
    or so-called gender freedoms.

    But that's absolutely not the problem. And, I repeat, that many of these people are, by their very nature, mentally located there,
    and not here, with our people, not with Russia. And this, in their opinion, is a sign of belonging to a higher caste, to a higher race.

    Such people can sell their own mother, if only they were allowed to sit in the hallway of this highest caste. And they want to be
    like it, imitating it in every possible way.

    The 15% basically represents the liberast and aligned faction of Russian society. It is also important to note that Levada has a history
    of spinning its questions and is not fully trustworthy. So the 15% may well be substantially lower, say 10%. But I have to admit that
    many Russians have been worked over by internal and external anti-Russian propaganda and what should be 2% is 10% or more.

    The tyrant trope is for retards.  Even Stalin did not have total control of the USSR.   That is why Trotskyist maggots ran the
    gulags and stuffed people into them.   He had to tolerate Khruschev, one the eager beaver maggots who was foaming at the
    mouth in his zeal to send Soviet citizens to gulags.   This maggot eventually staged a coup against him and was hailed a
    great reformer by the west.   The west always supports anti-Russian leaders such as Khruschev (Crimea gifting to
    Ukraine plus major economic damage) and Yeltsin (total comprador asswipe).  

    The idea of a total dictatorship is for little retarded children.   No individual can order around tens of millions of other individuals
    willy nilly.   The state apparatus has limitations and there are always power factions.  All you saw in the USSR and China during
    the cold war was factional infighting.   Pretty much the only time that a resonance mode of control can develop is under emergency
    situations (c.f. Covid-19).  The USSR was not and Russia is not in a continuous emergency mode.  Also modern Russia is not a
    structural dictatorship.   There is no state dogma.   Putin is not floating on any "personality cult" (popularity =/= cult) or laws
    that give him total control.   He has to play by very reasonable rules and has been doing a stellar job of it.  

    After decades if not centuries of misfortune, Russia has been lucky to get a leader like Putin.  It has been the best time in Russia's
    history.   NATzO bitching about "authoritarianism" and "tyranny" is thick and rich hypocrisy and sour grapes.

    The russian government always listens to what the majority of the people think. That´s why they "negotiated" with the Orcs. The puplic as a whole (not only Kadyrov) was not in favour of any deal, instead they want to bring the operation to the end.

    Trust in Putin rises from 57% to 80% in 1 year: survey, 24.06.2022.

    A survey released on Friday (24) points out that 80% of Russians trust the actions of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The rate of confidence of the population in the head of State rose by 23 percentage points in a year.

    According to the survey, conducted by Russia's Public Opinion Foundation (FOM), only 12 percent said they do not trust Putin, while 8 percent were unsure.

    Compared to a similar June 2021 poll, the numbers are much better for the president. At the time, 57% said they trusted Putin, with 32% rejecting the claim and 11% unable to answer.

    According to the institute, the index of trust in Putin has changed since the special military operation in Ukraine, announced on February 24.

    The FOM Survey questioned 1,500 people over the age of 18 in 53 Russian regions between June 17 and 19. The margin of error is 3.6%.

    The poll also showed that 81 percent of respondents approve of the president's actions. Already 8% expressed the opposite opinion and 11% said they were not sure. As of June 2021, the approval rating of the shares was 62%.

    The Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VCIOM) also conducts similar surveys. According to the company, since the beginning of the military operation in Ukraine, Putin's approval ratings are at the level of 80%.

    In a survey conducted between June 13 and 19, with 1,600 citizens over the age of 18, the rate was 81.1%. The margin of error for this survey is 1%.

    "The Most Unpredictable Decade" Highlights from Putin's speech, 10.27.2022.

    Putin called the coming decade the most unpredictable and important since World War II.

    MOSCOW, October 27 - RIA Novosti, Renat Abdullin. Vladimir Putin took part in the annual meeting of the Valdai Discussion Club. He noted the growing crisis of Western democracy and outlined possible ways out of it. The main theses of the president are in the material of RIA Novosti.

    About the global crisis

    The conference, which lasted in Moscow from October 24 to 27, was devoted to the topical problems of the new global order. "World after hegemony: justice and security for all" - this is how the organizers formulated the central theme. Even before Putin's speech, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov called it "the main event of the day." According to him, this speech is to be "studied, read and re-read."

    The President began with a general assessment of the situation in the world. Everything continues to develop according to a negative scenario, which Moscow has repeatedly warned about. And it's not just about military threats, but also about economic challenges.

    "The West has taken a number of steps to escalate, they always play to aggravate," the head of state said, referring to the crises around Ukraine, Taiwan, as well as food problems. At the same time, the West does not have any unity, it is only a conglomerate of countries, between which there are enough contradictions.

    There are only two ways left: to accumulate a burden of problems that will "crush" all world players, or to solve problems together, albeit not ideally, but in effective ways.

    On the culture of "cancellation"

    "Confidence in one's own infallibility is a dangerous state," Putin recalled, pointing to attempts by Western opponents (as the president softly called them) to "cancel" foreign cultures.

    At the moment, any alternative point of view is equated with propaganda or undermining values. "To what have you sunk, use your brains," Putin addressed his "opponents". Any criticism towards the West is perceived as "intrigues" and "intrigues of the Kremlin."

    The president has quoted Russian thinkers from Dostoevsky to Solzhenitsyn, who have long predicted, in Putin's opinion, the fall of Western democratic standards.

    Various forms of democracy are rejected, he added, in favor of only one model of democracy. And it comes to the aggressive imposition of their views. “It’s just crazy,” Putin emotionally commented on the recognition of Western countries in the preparation of the 2014 coup in Ukraine.

    On the conflict with the West

    True democracy lies only in the observance of the right of each state to choose its own model for the development of society, Putin stressed. The West is afraid of alternatives that are already proving effective. But development is inevitable. And the Americans are not able to offer at least something, they are trying to fit all states into one pattern, condemning the culture of objectionable peoples.

    "Traditional values ​​are not a fixed set of postulates: in each case they are unique for each people, they should not be imposed, but respected," the president said, touching on the non-traditional views that prevail in the West.

    Russia did not consider and does not consider itself an enemy of the Western countries. But they want to turn us into a tool to achieve their goals. Russia is not going to be one, like many other states.

    At the same time, "we ourselves are not trying to become a hegemon, to replace the dominance of the West with the dominance of the East, North or South," Putin added.

    About integration

    The way out of the current difficult moment is possible only through the creation of financial institutions that do not depend on a single country. Departure from the dictates of the dollar is inevitable, payments in national currencies will continue to grow, like other integration processes.

    The new centers of power are able to compete with the West. But only together can we achieve results. To do this, it is enough for Western countries to allow local markets to develop without seizing their resources, as they used to do. Russia, for example, creates entire industries in other states, contributing to a technological breakthrough.

    "If liberal globalization is depersonalization, then integration is the joint development of common strategies that benefit everyone," the president summed up. But, according to him, in any case, the world is waiting for "the most unpredictable decade."

    Coming of age "Valdai"

    Putin has been participating in Valdai meetings since 2004, when the club was created. The first conference took place in Veliky Novgorod, near Lake Valdai. Hence the name. Then we moved to Sochi. This year we chose Moscow. Format: hours-long discussions involving experts from all over the world. This time, 111 experts and politicians from more than 40 countries, including Western countries, spoke. But, of course, there were more participants from friendly states of the Middle East, Asia, Africa and the CIS.

    Many of the president's theses have become a logical continuation of what he voiced in a somewhat milder form in past years. For example, Putin has spoken regularly and at length about relations between Russia and the West, which have stalled because Moscow's behavior has been misinterpreted abroad. In particular, he pointed out that they perceived Russian openness and trust in partners as a weakness. And that was a mistake.

    Putin had a good run. He is a very good administrator. But he's getting older and its time for someone else.

    He can't seem to accept the fact that some Russian soldiers will have to die , to protect the homeland. He condemns the Bolshevics all the time. But at least they fought till the job was done.

    Ppl say that Medvedev is just talking tough to impress the people. I don't think so. When Georgia attacked , he was in charge. And he had a swift military response. I think if 2022 Putin was in charge of that , 3 days would have passed before that decision was made.

    It is time for Medvedev to have another presidential term
