by anon-a4e4 He has done little to move Russia beyond a resource based economy and has completely hollowed out all the basic freedoms that protect the people when things go poorly. And they will. I hope China succeeds in its quest to develop green energy, rendering fossil fuels useless and the despots of the world powerless - Putin, the Mideast gang..and unfortunately the US because of Trump totally backing away from renewable energy in favor of drill baby drill. Not to mention the destruction to the climate being wrought by this new push to radically shift the climate (at least from the point of view of it being habitable by humans in most places).

By Mark Tracey For an outside perspective, it appears to be a very restrictive and corrupt government society allowing little in the way of personal liberty. I would call it a dictatorship disguised as a democracy.
Over all for the people of Russia, unsuccessful.

How do you feel about your president, the Putin apologist/puppet?

By Mark Tracey Trump is many things, but he is not an apologist or a puppet, his self centered, egotistical personality would not allow that behavior.

By Mark Tracey Perhaps, but intelligence, isn’t the same thing as personality characteristics which would prevent him from being either an apologist or a puppet.
