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.

3:15 The subtitles say that he said "They are mad dogs. They should be treated as such.", but he's actually just saying "We need to pay close attention to it", it's actually funny how Vox lies blatantly and takes advantage of people who don't understand Russian.

*Putin's visiting a Russian elementary school.*
Putin: Any questions? Ok, you, you in the back. What's your name?
Child: My name is Ivan.
Putin: Well, what is your question, Ivan?
Ivan: I only have one question. Why did you invade Crimea?
Putin: Well, good question, but —
*Lunch bell rings*
*After lunch:*
Putin: Any questions? Ok, you, in the red shirt.

i can say, that the translation at 3:13 is EXTREMELY wrong. he said "we need to carefully take care of each situation", and nothing about mad dogs or anything like that. also, many other translates are not true, such as the nuclear text. vox is trying to make everyone's vision of Putin even more bad, and the info of Putin controlling all state television programs is a lie. many news sources in Russia make articles about how some people don't like Putin and how, and everything's okay. vox, just stop lying. i know that the situation in Russia isn't the best, but stop lying. i feel awful to correct normal facts for vox, and I hope no one falls as a victim to some of vox's lies.
