Russia Will Find a Way to Protect Its Interests If Other Countries Refuse Dialogue, Putin Says

Russia Will Find a Way to Protect Its Interests If Other Countries Refuse Dialogue, Putin Says

The president’s remarks come amid a new round of tensions between Russia and the West, including fresh sanctions against Moscow by Washington, claims about cyberattacks and election meddling, and mutual recriminations over the escalating civil conflict in Ukraine. Moscow will find “asymmetrical” ways to defend its national interests if other nations refuse dialogue, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said.

The message was heard in kyiv. The clown just folded. He addressed his “fellow” Ukrainians (Ukrainians, Tartars, Russians, all of them) in Russian (he used to switch between russian and ukrainian all the time before the “problems”) offering to meet Putin in Donbass. That would be a humiliation.

So the first Domino has fallen. Russia is on a roll.

The USA will push him to war. He is not in control.

I totally agree with both of you. I don’t know if Putin ever used the expression of drawing the red line before, but I find it really significant because it is an expression that the Western audience does understand. Putin wants to be able to say that they have been warned, if and when the time comes. I also conclude that Putin will back Belarus and prevent the coup against Plutoshenko from succeeding. Putin’s emphasis on Russian tradition, focus on family, religion and culture will find response not only in Russia, much of Europe, but also in the US. Independent… Read more »

I take strong exception to the praise of Trump here, because he did considerable damage to the people of Syria and of Venezuela and of Iran and and of Palestine and of the United States, and was, on balance, a serious contender — along with George W. Bush and Barack Obama — for the title of “worst President in U.S. history.” (Personally, I think that Truman was the worst, because he started the Cold War, but most other historians in America don’t acknowledge that fact, and consider Truman to have been a good President.)

Still, Obama’s administration is same as the one now are the ones who were willing to step on the last stone on the path to Russia’s door. Though Clinton /Bush were on the same pathway. Trump is thought of as the worst because he has shown the world the US’s true ugly face. International wise US policy is stuck on railroad tracks irregardless of administration. I guess the president you hate the most is says more about the person hating them since none of them are good. Next president could be a fungal spore and it could be a suitable… Read more »

Great program as always. I’m your loyal viewer. I wanted to say something about Putin’s tiger and Hyena comments. They were quite interesting and symbolic. He compared The current situation with the Jungle Book written by Kipling. Putin called him a brilliant English writer. The symbolic comparison is that the jackals feed from the scraps of the main villain, Tiger Shere Kahn. The Hyenas in the jungle book are also known to suck up to Shere Khan and support him in all his bad dealings. So in this brilliant comparison you can see that Shere Khan, the tiger villain, is… Read more »
