    The Russian president has surprised the audience at a forum in St. Petersburg, by allowing his German language skills to shine. He stepped in as translator for the former West German Defense Secretary Willy Wimmer.

    I don't understand why this would be a surprise, he served in East Germany for many years when he was in the KGB.

    I like him personally, and I like what he has done or attempted to do for the Russian people, but being from the era that I am from I could never fully trust an ex-KGB agent.

    In the fifties, during my college years, I used to listen to the voice of America and radio "Moscou" on short wave radio. I was interested in both communism and capitalism. Both stations were always bragging about their accomplishments. In France the communist party was flourishing. Needless to say that the voice of capitalism was more credible.
    After the dissolution of the USSR, I continued being interested in the new Russia. I am impressed with Putin as a leader. For how long? I listen to all his speeches, this the best way to know somebody since most papers are fake news.
    Putin has still a communist opposition, who knows what is going to happen in the next elections. Trump and Putin need to talk before the next elections of both of them.

    Putin will never loose via ''election'' (or any election where voters would have anything to say/plays any roles).

    It is Russia.

    He either ...

    a.) continue
    b.) step aside

    ... and if he will not step aside ''in time'' ... somebody younger will stab in his back and steal the power (then Putin is too old/weak/blind to fight anymore).

    Honestly the first idea what comes to my mind then thinking Putin today .... is? .... He is old already!
    FS, this is a bit cruel

    He's only 66 and that's no great age for a politician.

    Several US presidents have been older than this when in office.

    Recent examples include Ronald Reagan, George Bush I & Donald Trump.

    What does Putin think about Trump?

    Putin Compares and Contrasts Trump to Previous Presidents, Weighs in on Character Flaws!

    Vladimir Putin: "President Trump is not a career politician. He has a distinct world outlook and vision of the USA's national interests. He's a talented person. He knows very well what his voters expect from him."

    As these can be someway linked to Putin himself and against whole corrupted elite of Russia ... I add these here. If people would have enough courage and not been scared so much (''slavics'') plus they still remember too well communists iron curtain era .... the volume on the streets would be huge and some burning cars in Paris would look like small things.

    I just wonder who is involved in that opposition against Putin.
    Do your homework and find out. Liberalism tries to take roots in Russia.
    He has criticized the west many times and warned of consequences. I think he is right.

    Personally?

    I would't be sad if ...
    a.) liberals,
    b.) nationalists (different ethnics in Russia)
    ... or something between them would destroy Russian Empire to 10 smaller countries.

    To have a neighbour with just 10-15 million people instead of 170 million? Would feel much safer.

    Personally, while I still harbor antagonistic memories of the former Soviet Union, (Mainly due to propaganda promoted during the so-called Cold War.), I do respect Vladimir Putin and contemporary Russia. And I would rather my country maintain good relations with Russia than continue to consider them a hostile threat to other sovereign nations.

    Premier Putin recalls two heroic stories from the Syrian conflict involving Russian troops:

    https://www.liveleak.com/view?t=sBtjf_1565500381
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.
