Russia´s Pitiful President
People who do not live in Russia should thank their lucky stars every day of lives. It is the most depressing place to live because of the leaders and the awful climate, but mostly because of the ones who lead Russia and what Russia has to offer, which is practically nothing. Under Russia´s current president, Vladimir Putin, Russia is on the road to yesteryear. Russians deserve a much better fate.
The leaders of Russia have never forgotten that they Cold War over thirty years ago, and now under Putin, he would like to start another Cold War. You can hear the wheels beginning to turn, and Putin demands it´s done his way.
Under Putin Russia is now ignoring international law. That will certainly encourage Iran and North Korea to do the same. That is going to dampen any world sympathy for Russia. The United States and Europe have been cutting their defense budgets, but that is going to come to a halt. In the U. S. and Europe more spending will have to take place buying military hardware. Ignoring international law is a monumental and grave mistake by Putin.
Now Russia has to deal with sanctions, and that is going to badly effect Russia´s ability to do successful banking, which they heavily depend on. Russia does not offer much to the success of other countries. They only provide oil and weapons that end up in the hands of terrorists. So, banking is very important to Russia, and the sanctions will strongly be devoted to harming them.
Someone called Putin a dimwit. Well, that seems to be an accurate assessment. A dimwit is a stupid person, and Putin, who has been ignoring international law, has put himself in the dimwit category. Since becoming president of Russia, he has Cold War thinking rolling around in his head. Putin has been poking the U. S. in the eye with a mix of Cold War-style tactics. However, Putin´s ignoring of international law is serious, and any violation will bring consequences and jeopardize world peace. Putin is just the kind of person who would risk that.
There is strong doubt that Putin should even be Russia´s president. During the last election in Russia there was strong indication suspicion that the election was not honest and that Putin, somehow, was underhandedly declared the president.
Others countries are watching Russia´s behavior during the Ukraine situation. Now that Russia has ignored international law, other country will be inclined to do the same, and that will be a serious situation. All the blame would be attributed to Putin for his dimwitted thinking and actions, along with all the sanctions that he caused to be placed on Russia. Putin is an absolute disadvantage being Russia´s president. Putin is capable another Cold War. Everyone is waiting and watching to see if the sanctions lead to another Cold War.
