Imagine if Putin was an American. Imagine that he became 45the US president. Imagine that during his presidency US budget increased 22 times, gold reserves increased 48 times, average salaries increased 18 times, social security check increased 14 times, he stopped genetically mutated produce from being sold in local stores, and took American oil companies back from foreign investors. Would you think he is a good president?
Well, that is exactly what he did for Russia. So, it is no wander that majority of people in Russia love him. While western media try to demonize him, those who report news objectively take a different approach.
