Putin's Kleptocracy: Who Owns Russia? By Karen Dawisha


Vladimir Putin has been ruling Russia since 1999. In that time he has shaped the country into an authoritarian and militaristic society. The Soviet Union dissolved into 15 new countries, including the new Russian Federation. In Putin’s eyes, Russia had just lost 2 million square miles of territory. But Putin’s regime has also developed and fostered the most effect cyber hacker army in the world and he’s used it to wreak havoc in the West. But the election of Donald Trump brings new hope for the Putin vision. Trump’s rhetoric has been notably soft on Russia. He could lift sanctions and weaken NATO, potentially freeing up space for Putin’s Russia to become a dominant power once again.

Putin looks young, but he is actually old.
Putin looks like a mad spy, but is actually a pretty nice champ.
But most importantly: Putin looks russian, but is actually an alien...

If there’s anything I’ve learned from listening and watching Putin’s actual interviews, is to never trust Western media. Most of them are meant to misinform and brainwash. And Vox is no exception. Shame on you.

3:13
The subtitles are completely wrong.

He basically says "We have to be careful"

Listen to his speech, he barely says a few words, while in subtitles there are two sentences.
