Western political and financial elites absolutely hate Vladimir Putin and they are appalled at Russia's behavior, both inside Russia and on the international scene. This tension was quite visible on the faces of US President Barack Obama and President Putin at the Group of Eight summit at Lough Erne, where both leaders looked absolutely disgusted with each other.
Things got even worse when Putin did something quite unheard of in Russian diplomatic history: he publicly said that US Secretary of State John Kerry was dishonest and even called him a liar.

LOL. That description is sooooo on target! I can just see him prancing around like a pigeon-stepping in his own poo.LOL
When a diplomat says yes, it means maybe;
when he says maybe, it means no; when he
says no, he is no diplomat.
I’ll say it again, Vladimir Putin is the bst ruler Russia has ever had since Tsar Peter and Bork Obunga is the worst ruler any advanced state has ever had since Nero.
