Some vilify him and some call him a hero. I don't know jack-shit about Putin so can you help me understand why so many people have mixed feelings about him?

He controls Russia like a cartel with his oligarchs but he knows what the Russian people want and doesn't take all of their money, only most of it.

Pretty ok dude by Russian head of state standards.

I should be revising for an exam right now but fuck it.

The reason for western hate for Uncle Vlad is simple.

After the Soviet Union fell, Russian assets were illegally privatized by Corps like Yukos, To the benefit of Mikhail Khodorkovsky who made millions from it. These assets included much of the Russian state infrastructure and utilities, energy and the financial sector. While this DID shift russia into a regulated market economy, much of the wealth fell into the hands of the very few, and the russian people were left skint, with no employment opportunities or access to good education, Because Russia was now ready to trade with the west(selling valuable materials, oil, steel, etc etc) many Western businesses and Corporations made a lot of money. Enter Vladimir Putin, a Nationalist and Patriot, intent on rebuilding Russia into a force to be reckoned with. Under him, the Russian government seized many of the previously privatized assets and returned them to state control. This benefited the Russian people greatly and insured his presidency for years to come.

So who lost? Russian monopolies and oligarchs, Western Corporations and Lobbyists who fund Big Government and the EU.

TL;DR: Putin told the jews to get fucked

>>61093057
We've got three powers that have the ability and the desire to rule the world. The US, Russia, and China. If there's any country we have to be wary of it's China. Right now they're playing the helpful economic ally with the the US, Russia, and other developing countries. They know in time, as they gradually increase their influence, they will seize economic power of all major countries. After that happens we will all be subjected to the wiles of Chinese government.

I'd rather be ruled by the jews than ruled by the Chinese. The jews may be money hungry and hell bent on destroying Judea Christian values, but at least they're not Chinese.

So then what exactly did he do while he was in office around 1999-2008? I read that incomes in Russia rose by a factor of 2.5, while real wages more than tripled; unemployment and poverty more than halved.

That's one hell of a PR team

He's a pretty corrupt and self-serving politician.

Well, to say that he did absolutely nothing would be extremely ingorant.
But it's pretty well known what he did: he put Russia on track with natural resources business with oil as the cornerstone. It was a nice combination of a common sense and "you can't fall any further when you hit rock bottom". You can see that as oil price gradually risen economy of Russia got better. When it crashed economy crashed too.
The other thing he did well (IMO) is fighting terrorism in Chechnya. It went from shithole tier to "okay tier" but that's a long and twisted story.
Also, he did not fuck up military but that does not help common folk that much.

This. Or rather, "these".

Putin is a corrupt, paranoid asshole.

He's given leeway by his people for saving them (some of them, God knows most of Russia is a shithole.) from economic disaster and appealing to a wounded sense of nationalism.

Most news outlets in Russia are propaganda, with RT being their premier international bullshit machine.

Putin's entire foreign policy can be summed up with "muh buffer states". He is personally offended whenever a country that borders Russia cuts a deal with the west, and is doubly offended when the west interferes with Eastern Europe or the Near East (even when they're stopping a genocide, lel.)

Lately he's sought to salvage esteem by stealing clay in Europe, backing/funding terrorists and propping up dictators. The only problem is that Russia in the 21st century is broke as shit (poorer than Italy, or even the state of California) and has way less power, so more people are able to call them out than, say, the United States.

>>61091431
LOL, the retards in here, it's disturbing.

OK, actual unbiased opinion from someone who can actually both speak cyka and English well and has been to both places:

Putin is far from what he is portrayed in Russian media (bare-chested demigod) and what he's portrayed in western media (Bond villain).

The reality is that Putin's foreign policies are way less devious than Western policies, way less expansionist, and Russia was an absolute wasted shithole before he rose to power, don't believe the Shlomos saying otherwise, ask anyone who has been to Moscow in the nineties and 2015 and they will know. There's a reason Ruskis love Putin when you drink beer with them and somehow hate him on western forums, don't buy the shit

Despite the good things and the obvious fuckery against him, he has done some shit, introduced some policies that aren't good for anyone, is creating a shitfest to flex his muscles - I do believe he does just want to be left alone but the way he does it isn't really something anyone should approve. He is also be a filthy fucking liar, but what politician isn't?

Anti-Putin propaganda is way more clever than Pro-Putin propaganda, anti-Putin actually FOCUSES on everything shitty he does, and just selectively report on bad things - pro-Putin is just childish and laughably naive (Putin went diving yesterday and found these hidden insanely valuable artifacts at the bottom of the lake! - actual daily news)

Like it is with everything don't believe the shit you're fed, everyone is a cunt trying to force their views on you, imagine if every single time Obama came up on any news outlets, it was related to the death toll of Iraqi kids and nothing else - you would hate him too

This is almost true, but you missed out the part where Putin stole an ungodly amount of wealth from the Russian people and runs the country like a crime syndicate, while giving his buddies even more of the stolen wealth.

If it weren't for that shit, everything you've said would be fairly accurate though.

Fair enough my Ukraine-bro. I'm just trying to build a comprehensive over view of the situation as it stands now.

The assumption in the West is that Putin BROUGHT the bad times with him. That he personally assembled a hit squad of KGB ninjas looting the Russian treasury, and they now make up to a T 100% of the 'evil Russia oligarchs' we talk about over here all the time.

But what if I told you they were there LONG before Putin (as we both know)? What if I told you he has SOME allies within that oligarchic class now (as we both know)? What if I told you he is constantly trying to balance the demands and needs of the oligarch class against the needs of the Russian state and the majority of it's people (as I think we both realize)?

He is no saint but the propaganda against him is hysterical.

I hope Trump wins so we can rejuvenate relations between our countries and hopefully bring a peaceful end to what's happening in your country.
