For over a decade, the West has freaked out about Putin's Russia becoming an unstoppable behemoth By obsessing over a version of Putin that could never exist, they inadvertently gave him the space to become something more sinister

The MI6-officer-turned-private-spy talks about meeting then Soviet Union president Mikhail Gorbachev while serving as an intelligence officer in Moscow and - possibly - having a cup of tea poured for him by a young putin'>Vladimir Putin

Example: Skripal poisoning a bit embarrassing, but not worth actually stoking real tension that could boil into something serious. Conequence: domestically, Putin looks like he can act with impunity anywhere he likes. Se also Syria

Putin's interests are far narrower than many think. He doesn't really think beyond the Russian sphere of influence. The perception of Western policy failure -- say in Syria, Afghanistan or gas supplies – feeds the narrative that Putin knows best

For all the Russia hysteria over the past decade, it might be that the West's reluctance to really understand Putin has helped create the most dangerous version of the man that was ever possible

putin'>Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a tirade against Western values in his speech at the annual Valdai Discussion Club in Sochi late into Thursday evening

Putin's plans for the future don't include playing the weak member of an autocratic alliance

A lack of focus on what matters to Putin combined with lacklustre policy toward Russia has helped the Putin Is Powerful myth grow Those who do understand Putin's power is limited view his hostility as irksome rather than a threat, and respond accordingly

RT if you agree that 30 days of silence from Donald Trump about #BountyGate  is 30 days too long. If Putin really has put bounties on our troops, then they need to know that their Commander and Chief has their back. So far, his silence is deafening.

Just spoke to my friend MBS (Crown Prince) of Saudi Arabia, who spoke with President Putin of Russia, & I expect & hope that they will be cutting back approximately 10 Million Barrels, and maybe substantially more which, if it happens, will be GREAT for the oil & gas industry!

Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the billionaire widow of Yury Luzhkov, the former mayor of Moscow a known associate of putin'>Vladimir Putin. Where are our fearless “journalists” now that there’s a real Russia connection?

According to reporting including @MeetThePress  , Trump called Putin 6 times in 2 months - March 30th, April 9th, April 10th, April 12, May 7th, June 1 ! That would be a crazy number of calls to any foreign leader. But to Putin? What on earth were they discussing? So strange.

Nancy Pelosi said she got “set up” by the owner (a very good one) of a beauty parlor. If so, how will she do in negotiations against President Xi of China, President Putin of Russia, or Kim Jong Un of North Korea. Not so well, I suspect, but far better than Joe Hiden’ would do!

John Bolton, one of the dumbest people I’ve met in government and sadly, I’ve met plenty, states often that I respected, and even trusted, Vladimir Putin of Russia more than those in our Intelligence Agencies. While of course that is not true, if the first people you met from....

Trump announces that he spoke to Putin today and no reporter asks what he said to Putin. No reporter asks what he said to Putin about intelligence reports that Putin is paying to kill American soldiers.

Russians are paying Islamic radicals to kill American troops in Afghanistan. Donald Trump has known about Putin targeting Americans for months and has refused to even condemn Russia diplomatically. What Republican senator will speak out against this shocking dereliction of duty?

It took Trump less than 24 hours to condemn protestors as "thugs," but it has been over a week and he still hasn't condemned putin'>Vladimir Putin for putting a bounty on American troops. Funny how that works.

The big Oil Deal with OPEC Plus is done. This will save hundreds of thousands of energy jobs in the United States. I would like to thank and congratulate President Putin of Russia and King Salman of Saudi Arabia. I just spoke to them from the Oval Office. Great deal for all!
