More and more people in my country recognise the dangers of having their governors appointed by Putin and having no influence in parliament because Parliament today is also following instructions from Kremlin and no longer represents its people.More [08/02/2011 07:08:09]
The only successor to President Putin is President Putin himself and we could of course dream about President Putin stepping down voluntarily and picking out successor which would be probably as bad as him.More [08/02/2011 07:08:58]
Although the 'office trade' between President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is not encouraging, we must stay the course to intensify ties with Russia and overcome political and economic lethargyMore [12/12/2011 02:12:23]
Since coming to power, Putin has eliminated most legitimate opposition, leaving Russia with a smattering of parties loyal to the Kremlin and little in the way of civil society. Few doubt that he will win elections next year (when replacing the puppet current president Dmitry Medvedev) though he took iss...More [12/13/2011 02:12:31]

While Dmitri Medvedev enjoys the title of president, Vladimir Putin continues to call the real shots.More [12/13/2011 02:12:49]
We all have lived under Brezhnev, Andropov, Chernenko and Gorbachev's (Perestroika reforms). But that was a different country. We are totally different country today and the debate who is more liberal or authoritarian among Putin or Medvedev is useless. There cannot be a return to the Soviet pastMore [12/14/2011 09:12:40]
When Putin was preparing to take back the presidency in Moscow, he published an essay in the fall of 2011 in a Russian newspaper announcing plans to regain lost influence among former Soviet republics and create a powerful supra-national union capable of becoming a pole in the modern world. Putin said that this new Eurasian Union would change the geopolitical and geo-economic configuration of the entire continent. Some dismissed these words as campaign bluster, but I thought they revealed Putin’s true agenda, which was effectively to re-Sovietize Russia’s periphery.More Hard Choices [06/21/2016 08:06:18]
Vladimir Trump and Donald Putin held their first telepathic session/More [04/06/2017 01:04:29]
In an amicable way, of course, I would have left Putin for another ten years, from which only everyone will benefit. Vladimir Vladimirovich is a leader, personally I like a lot about him. Look, when the leaders of foreign countries meet with Putin, they come to his office with their opinion, and leave - with his opinion!More [11/07/2017 09:11:56]
I consider ... Putin is a man who was sent to Russia by fate and the Lord at a difficult time for her.More [03/07/2018 05:03:46]

Putin has a lot at stake here and restoring the relationship with the United States, and there are already signs as Sandy mentioned that he's moving in the right direction to begin to ascertain that their trade with Iran is not used for the production of nuclear weapons.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Russia continues to side with... rogue states and terrorist organizations, following Vladimir Putin's pattern of gratuitous and unpunished affronts to U.S. interests.More [03/14/2018 09:03:17]
Putin is a man of gratitude and honor. He never gives up his friends. How Zurabov is monstrous: whatever he does, everything fails, - but look: it's worth it, it's holding on. This is Putin's nature!More [03/22/2018 11:03:41]
Putin asked us not to mention a single country in the G8 final document and we did that,More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is a very big loss but it is not a death blow to us, as (Russian President Vladimir) Putin thinks.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Putin and his advisers don't understand the power of public opinion in the West. They believe in conspiracy theories and that someone is orchestrating a malicious campaign against Russia. They don't realize that even conservative politicians have to react when newspapers and artists express their concern on such an issue.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Putin is like Al Capone.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If Mitt Romney can be pushed around, intimidated, coerced, co-opted by a conservative radio talk show host in Middle America, then how is he going to stand up to the Chinese? How is he going to stand up to Putin? How is he going to stand up to North Korea if he can be pushed around by a yokel like me? I don't think Romney is realizing the doubts that this begins to raise about his leadership.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Sunday was the normal day for the political awareness session at sea. Ordinarily Putin would have officiated, reading some Pravada editorials, followed by selected quotations from the works of Lenin and a discussion of the lessons to be learned from the readings. It is very much like a church service.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In chess the rules are fixed and the outcome is unpredictable, whereas in Putin's Russia the rules are unpredictable and the outcome is fixed.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
So when Putin goes out to buy a Coke, thirty seconds later it is known in Washington DC.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The president(Obama) comparing him to a kid in the back of a classroom, I think, is very indicative of the president's lack of appreciation of who Vladimir Putin is. He's an old KGB colonel that has no illusions about our relationship, does not care about a relationship with the United States, continues to oppress his people, continues to act in an autocratic fashion.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
With Russia about to hold the Winter Games in Sochi, the country is open to pressure. American and world leaders must speak out against Mr. Putin's attacks and the violence they foster. The Olympic Committee must demand the retraction of these laws under threat of boycott.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
While the behavior of the Russian government, Putin and Putin punks are abhorrent, nothing will be changed by boycotting the Sochi Winter Games. In fact, those who are appalled by the treatment of LGBT Russian citizens will lose an incredible opportunity for the world to show their disgust.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I do not know how Vladimir Putin will be esteemed by the future history, but I have no doubt that among his successes and advantages for Russia historians shall absolutely note the fact of his not altering the constitution, for he created a precedent. And afterwards, no matter who might become president, it shall be extremely difficult to alter the constitution exactly on that point. Extremely difficult.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

That's right, Mitt Romney took on Evander Holyfield in a boxing match for charity, and it was a pretty one-sided fight. But it was still not the worst boxing match we've seen this month. This weekend Vladimir Putin played in an exhibition hockey game with some former NHL players and scored eight goals. Even Evander Holyfield and Mitt Romney said, 'That looks fake.'More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

There's a better way to speak out against President Putin and call out his bigotry for exactly what it is: speaking up for equal rights and educating people around the world about the persistence of homophobia. Rather than boycott, I, along with several amazing organizations including Athlete Ally and All Out, plan to use the Sochi Games as a teachable moment for the world.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Edward Snowden gave a little press conference today. He is apparently seeking temporary asylum in Russia. Because, you know, when you're tired of the government snooping into everything you do, Putin's Russia is definitely the place you want to go.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The minute Putin went into Crimea, what Obama should have done is sent 50,000 troops to NATO. He didn't have to engage them, just send them. That puts the fear of God into people.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We will stop Iran from becoming a nuclear power. We will stop that nuclear arms race that could happen in the Middle East. We will also make that Putin knows we have brigades in eastern Europe to make sure we deter his aggression. Peace through strength works.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

It’s irrelevant to me what young Singaporeans think of me. What they think of me after I’m dead and gone in one generation will be determined by researchers who do PhDs on me, right? So there will be a lot of revisionism. As people revised Stalin, Brezhnev and one day now Yeltsin, and later on Putin. I’ve lived long enough to know that you may be idealised in life and reviled after you’re dead.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Much of the international unease with the Sochi Games has focused on the threat of terrorism, Putin's domestic repressiveness, and the Russian campaign of anti-gay propaganda.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Putin stands for the opposite of a universal ideology; he has become an arch-nationalist of a pre-Cold War type, making mystic appeals to motherland and religion.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We all accuse Vladimir Putin of Cold War nostalgia, but Washington's elites - politicians and intellectuals - miss the old days as well. They wish for the world in which the United States was utterly dominant over its friends, its foes were to be shunned entirely, and the challenges were stark, moral, and vital. Today's world is messy and complicated. China is one of our biggest trading partners and our looming geopolitical rival. Russia is a surly spoiler, but it has a globalized middle class and has created ties in EMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[Putin] is a bully. And bullies only understand when we punch them in the nose, but we need to do that economically.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We are hurtling back into a Soviet abyss, into an information vacuum that spells death from our own ignorance. All we have left is the internet, where information is still freely available. For the rest, if you want to go on working as a journalist, it's total servility to Putin. Otherwise, it can be death, the bullet, poison, or trial—whatever our special services, Putin's guard dogs, see fit.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But I also made it clear to (Vladimir Putin) that it's important to think beyond the old days of when we had the concept that if we blew each other up, the world would be safe.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
President Putin continues to call for new peace plans as his troops roll through the Ukrainian countryside and he absolutely ignores every agreement that his country has signed in the past and he has signed recently, we, the United States, and Europe as a whole, have to stand with Ukraine at this moment. Ukraine needs our financial assistance and support as it pursues reforms and even in the face, in the face of this military onslaught.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think Putin has changed, for sure. He has changed over time and he has been emboldened by, whether it's true or not, the perception is that we've pulled back, so people do change and this is an example of that.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think to deal with Putin, you need to deal from strength. He's a bully, you enable bad behavior when you're nuanced with a guy like that.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
