  • Russian people don’t have any choice. The referendum that is going to be on 22 April, will be 100 faked by our government. Our people will become fully helpless. It’s a true totalitarianism 🙁

  • As Putin has definitely made a lot of domestic enemies, he is afraid of the fact that if he is no longer in power, the new guy will have his head on the plate. That is why he wants to be king for life.

  • Putin should watch his mouth if he doesn't want to dangle like Saddam Hussein.

    After the Kirch Strait incident and the unlawful Crimean incursion; Putin can be tried by the International Criminal Court, for violations of the Law of the Sea, Violations of the Geneva Accords, and Human Rights Abuses.
