Senator John McCain accused Vladimir Putin on Thursday of allying himself with tyrants and ruling through violence and repression, in a retort to a New York Times editorial by the Russian President earlier this month.
In an editorial published on the news website Pravda.ru, McCain criticized the Russian leader's policies at home and in Syria where he has protected President Bashar al-Assad.
"(Putin) is not enhancing Russia's global reputation. He is destroying it. He has made her a friend to tyrants and an enemy to the oppressed, and untrusted by nations that seek to build a safer, more peaceful and prosperous world," wrote the senior senator from Arizona, who is also a leading Republican voice on military affairs.
Pravda.ru considers itself a successor to the Soviet-era Communist Party newspaper but is not connected to it. Like the newspaper, which still exists, it has a limited readership.
U.S.-Russia ties are at one of their lowest points since the Cold War. Tensions over the Syrian conflict have been compounded by differences over human rights and the fate of fugitive ex-U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden, to whom Russia awarded asylum.

He needed to retire 25 or more years ago IMO.
Putin doesn’t care about Obama. Why would he care about his water boy?
What a jerk.
The best response to Putin’s remarks is no response.
McCain is too much of a hothead for that.
And 0bummer is too incompetent to know it.
Leave it McCain to submit his piece to the wrong Pravda, the one nobody reads.
Anyone else here sick and tired of hearing about what that a$$hole McCain does? He’s an embarrassment to the human race.
Mccain the pirate???
Maybe he should worry about what's happening to Arizona, which is being turned into Mexico, a far worse place then Russia under Czar Putin.
Well you know, today, September 19th, IS International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
Anyone ever tell McCain that when you attack the messenger, you are basically saying you have lost the debate.
Aye, matey, he be in charge of the strawberries we take in booty.
Best rebuttal of McCain so far:
