I’m reminded that when Trump was asked about Russia and Ukraine, he said “He’s not going into Ukraine, OK, just so you understand. He’s not going to go into Ukraine, all right? You can mark it down. You can put it down. You can take it anywhere you want.” This was after Russia had already invaded Crimea. Since Trump routinely doubles down when he makes a mistake, and creates an alternate reality in which he was right all along, I wonder if that dynamic plays some part in this, too…
I’d say that Putin’s regime is an authoritarian kleptocracy.
It’s the kind of regime that Trump aspires to have / masturbates to
Also a sado-populist sham democracy, running a petro-state that longs to restore its old imperial status. After all they’ve been through, the Russian people are due a lot better than this dumpster fire.
So does the rest of the world.
