I was checking BBC on my iPad at lunch today and found this:

"He wants to move to another level of relations, a closer, deeper level of relations with Russia. How can we not welcome this? Of course we welcome this...his manner of speaking, what he employs to raise his popularity (is not of Russia's concern) - it is not our business to rate this part of his work."

Some people might not care that much, but I found it interesting.

Yes its logical that as the candidate pushing for closer ties with Russia that Putin would support him. When compared with the rest of the republican field it is not surprising Putin wants an American president who will give him leeway to achieve strategic objectives in Russia's region of influence while avoiding a hostile tense relationship which disadvantages both countries.

Actually, yeah I think so. He claims he's the only one who could work effectively with Putin.

He does. I also find that both Trump and Putin are or at least would be leaders who would do what is in their best interest, rather than what seems to be cordial or "politically correct".

I found it interesting, too. It seems natural that the leader of a country considered to be a foe of the US would say good things about a potential leader of the US who he thinks he can outmaneuver because of that leader's ego or inept policies. It doesn't seem likely that he would support a leader who would actually strengthen his "foe's" position. I think it would be naive to let the leaders of other nations sway Americans' choice for President.

From my understanding yes. He certainly is not taking the hardline stance against it many of his opponents are.

"Vladimir Putin on Trump," is the topic of subject on debate.org Dec. 18Th. 2015
Vladimir Putin praising Trump is backhanded compliment, That is "What might at first sound like a compliment but could/should really be taken as an insult when considered in its entirety."
Vladimir Putin , I'm quite sure, doesn't wish America well and if he is singing the praises of Donald trump it's almost a sure bet that Putin is only doing it because he thinks that Donald Trump either can be managed to Russia's benefit or he thinks that the best way to keep a real conservative from winning the election who would beat Hillary Clinton is to promote someone Putin thinks will lose the election for the republicans, and one who Putin believes will help the Russians,"Hillary Clinton," best America in any future negotiations with America.
