Yes, that's why we love him.
As Napoleon once said, "never disturb your enemy when he's doing a mistake".
We applaud the Russians for cucking themselves and sentencing their own country to eternal 3rd world status.
Imagine if Russia had someone like Deng Xiaoping.
Opening the economy, reform the bureaucracy and establish new industries, all while mowing down the libtards and oppositional intellectuals without mercy. The red banner of the USSR, as well as the Warshaw Pact is retained and all member-states are forced to reform as well, while still subservient to the USSR.
The USSR would have been unstoppable today and the Western psyche would have suffered an extremely huge hit, seeing how our suppossed ideological superiority is getting completely wiped out by a Communist Giant's success. Oh wait, we already have that.
Yeah, thinking about it, the USSR was bureaucratically a lot more necrotic than China (who basically had no surviving bureaucracy after the cultural revolution to speak of), who would have stopped any sorts of gradual reforms by their own vested interests in maintaining the system as it is. The only way for the USSR to change was the catastrophic collapse that we have seen. There are many scientific articles detailing the reasons for China success compared to the impossibility of replicating that in the USSR.
Russians are simply brick-heads and lack ideologic flexibility and pragmatism.
There's no Russian Deng who could get his commie head around the idea that there's absolutely no problem even if you leave a blue cat to catch the mice, instead of the red cat.
And VEB Robotron could have done a joint venture with IBM, copy all their new technologies and indigenize them within a few years to provide a Eastern-Bloc wide computerized network to support the new economy.

China is far far far more unified than the Soviets were 1985-1991.
Maybe if Stalin or Krucshev had started actual positive reforms and followed development communism instead of fascism.
