Putin: Russia not ditching dollar, dollar moving away from Russia
Despite what you might hear on CNN, Russia's economy is doing great. The sanctions have made Russia stronger and the sanctions are strengthening ties between Russia and other countries to the exclusion of the USA. The USA cannot afford to be isolated economically and Putin makes a pretty good analogy to portray the reality of the situation.

I'm with you on that train of thought mrgreen. All the major economies are tied together. With that said economies can be used as a weapon and that is good and bad. I think like military weapons you better be careful how you use the economy as a weapon as it can come back to bite you in the ass.

Putin and Mohammed bin Salman share a high five… under Trump’s scrutinous eye
Yep, Putin appears heartbroken over Trump cancelling their meeting. :roll2:
The more the USA tries to alienate Russia, the more we alienate ourselves.

Russian bomber touches down on America's doorstep
The USA has bases which more or less surround the country of Russia. It only seems reasonable that Russia would want to return the favor. Just sayin...

REVEALED! Why Russia’a Top-Notch Avangard Hypersonic Glider Is The Game-Changer And Avant-Garde
This thing is supposed to hit speeds of up to Mach 30 generating a surface temperature of over 3000 degrees and creating a plasma cloud around itself. On top of that it can be maneuvered remotely making it hard to intercept. It's hard to tell how reliable it is and how much of this is hype, but it's a game-changer to some degree. However, I have no doubt that our military industrial complex will come up with an answer... at a hefty price, of course.

No doubt that companies that manufacture military equipment hear ka-ching whenever another country announces an advancement like this. Job security at its finest! It's almost as if military equipment manufacturers in different countries are just playing a game to help each other get rich.

Putin Warns US: Hands Off Venezuela
The USA is at it again, interfering in the internal affairs of another country. They did it in Ukraine several years ago and now it's Venezuela. How ironic that the USA accuses Russia of interference in its own elections!

No collusion? No problem! US media has no shortage of things to blame on Russia
Most people I talk to are of the opinion that we should work hard to do a better job of getting along with Russia, but the press works overtime in an attempt to demonize Russia. The propaganda must not be working since people aren't buying it.

Putin on Mueller investigation: It’s ‘total nonsense’ targeted at domestic US audience
You'll need to turn on subtitles unless you understand Russian. As is often the case, Putin's statement is brilliant. Many comments left in response to this video:
Putin has a better understanding of US politics than 99% of US politicians.

No doubt about that.
It's no wonder that they almost never quote Putin in US corporate news. He comes across as entirely reasonable.

Putin often makes statements which are obviously true and which undercut propaganda produced by media news in the USA. In this video he provides a very accurate assessment of what is happening here in the USA. Much more accurate than anything produced by the nitwits at CNN or MSNBC.
