    Putin

    OK. Here is your chance to say what you think about President Putin. It seems to me that a lot of western press is saying that Putin is leading Russians back to the days of the Soviets.

    I never believe anything that the press says, so I am asking you to give your opinions about Putin and his government.

    Да я его, в принципе, вообще не вижу (одно из преимуществ не смотрения телевизора). Путин не допустил ухудшения ситуации. Сейчас, спустя 7 лет, как он стал президентом, в России стало жить лучше. Бардака стало чуть меньше, у людей стала водиться какая-никакая денюжка. Либерасты кричат про права человека, про авторитаризм, про ущемления демократии... Если честно - мне на это всё положить. Мои права нигде ни в чём не ущемляются, у знакомых, друзей, родственников - тоже. То, что дармоедам журналистам становится нечего жрать - так мне оно фиолетово. По мне журналист - хуже милиционера. У Путина действительно высокое одобрение со стороны населения. Другое дело, если вдруг что-то случится и он останется на третий срок, к этому я отнесусь крайне негативно. Задолбало блин, когда при твоей жизни, конституция страны меняется несколько раз.

    I don't think anybody is saying he is bringing Russia back to the Soviet Union, but definitely that Russia has become a lot more authoritative under him. Putin is doing the best he can, I just don't understand why he has become so anti-American all of the sudden...

    Он и есть последняя инстанция исполнительной власти. Возражения могут быть только на этапе формирования решений, но не на этапе их исполнения.

    I agree with those who said that Putin is ok considering the circumstances he's had to work in since he became president in 2000. In my opinion, one of the many positive things that have happened under Putin so far is that there's now less criminalization than there was under Eltzin. Maybe, it's not only Putin's merit but anyway, it's happened in his presidency. As a student, I can also see the following advantage. Now I have lots of job opportunities in so many companies. I mean that today's Russian economy is surely much stronger than that of Eltsin's times, which means that companies are given really good chances to develop. I think that Putin has done enough to raise the country's economy.

    It's not just Putin. Putin was lucky he came to power in the time when oil prices rocketed up. Russia could settle the most of its debts because of that. The economy would be relly fine, Russia is the richest country in the world...potentially. But wealth comes when government stops stealing it. I can really see those money. At Yeltsin's times I saw only corruption and thieves. Now I see money put in business. Ordinary folk don't see it now, because their lives didn't change much, but these processes just need a momentim to gather. Another 10-15 years of stability and Russia will once again become a superpower.
    Once it happen it would be appropriate to talk about human rights and other bullшit. Particularly in view that human rights are not being so restrained in Russia as they speak in the West.

    Putin is a closet communist. Look at how he is consolidating power back into the hands of the state.

    I am judging from the obvious facts.

    How much of the oil revenue is in the hands of state controlled entities as opposed to corporate enterprises?
