Putin on the Ritz so to speak.
Putin insisted Wednesday that Russia must be strong to fend off foreign threats and lauded a long list of his own achievements, a show of muscle seen as a signal that the powerful leader intends to reclaim the country’s presidency next year.
I’m shocked, shocked!
His speech to the State Duma included a litany of self-praise and ambitious goals for the future.
Well, if Putin doesn’t self-promote, who will take care of him? The human rights community?
