  • Really? He's limited rights of certain people, the Russian economy is in trouble, and has poor foreign relations with a ton of countries (has a good relationship with Iran.) there's way more but those are a few examples.

  • During Putin's first premiership and presidency real incomes in Russia rose by a factor of 2.5, while real wages more than tripled; unemployment and poverty more than halved. Russians' self-assessed life satisfaction also rose significantly. Putin's first presidency was marked by high economic growth: the Russian economy grew for eight straight years, seeing GDP increase by 72% in PPP. This growth was a combined result of the 2000s commodities boom, high oil prices, as well as prudent economic and fiscal policies.

  • Putin, for all his flaws, is a very charismatic leader. He understands how to exploit his enemies weaknesses for his own gain and has done a very good job at rebuilding Russia after the collapse of the USSR.

Well 89% approval rating for Putin vs 45% for Obama. Putin must have done something right.

I agree wholeheartedly

Why is Russia's economy so bad though?
IndependentTruth says2015-07-16T18:29:59.0371475-05:00
Lol It's not like Putin is an authoritarian who suppresses dissent.

Sorry Russia - I do not feel like living in a dictatorship...

Outrageous! I am getting tired of all the americans of this site misrepresenting Mother Russia and her people it is offencive, ignorant and degrading. Here I see misrepresentations every time an issue about myself or my country is raised. I dont know if it is propaganda or hate but it's often factually wrong.
tajshar2k says2015-07-16T19:50:19.3909006-05:00
How about you take a video of Russians being nice, and post in on youtube?
tajshar2k says2015-07-16T19:50:38.1419804-05:00
And ask gay's if they are happy.

False dichotomy. Saying one is better doesn't make them "amazing" or able to "speak the truth".

Why is Russia singled out for its gay policy. Plenty of countries in Africa and Asia have gay laws that are harsher than Russia's.

@sara: Russia isn't a dictatorship even though it is not as democratic as some countries are considered to be. As a result of the conflict in Ukraine Putin and Russia have been portrayed as Hitler's Nazi Germany which any person who can see through propaganda will know is untrue.
