Putin is a ruthless murderous tyrant.
Dunno if he has killed anyone personally, but he has had people murdered. He has thrown rivals or enemies in jail on trumped up charges. I think he actually thrown folks (like Pussy Riot) in jail just ‘cause he felt like it.
His virtue seems to be a love of or, at least, loyalty to his country; he ruthless about pursuing what he thinks to be in Russia’s best interest and he seems loyal to his allies. He also knows who his (and Russia’s) enemies are, never forgets, never forgives and gleefully kills them in job lots.
I’d say he is making the US look bad, but after electing Obama TWICE, I think WE are making the US look bad.
“Putin is a ruthless murderous tyrant.”
I guess I missed all those murders by Putin. How about you provide links to fill in blanks.
