Putin's 15 Years in Power
In the US, PBS recently ran a documentary depicting Putin
as beyond evil - a thieving, murdering, democracy-smashing jerk who then
invaded Ukraine. German state TV ran one with an almost identical story
line just a few weeks ago.
We keep telling people - those western versions of Putin
are simply not true, and amount to the crudest form of character
assassination. So now here is the antidote. We would advise everyone to
watch both versions and draw their own conclusions. Once you dig into the
facts, it becomes pretty obvious who is BSing, and who isnít.
We think, and we keep telling everyone this, that Putin
has done a remarkably good job running his country, and seems to be a very
admirable man. Itís hard to disagree with this after watching this movie. -
May 21, 2015 "Information
Clearing House" - "Sott.net" - The folks of Vox
Populi Evo have pulled through again, providing an English translation and
subtitles for Rossiya-1's latest documentary, PRESIDENT, hosted by
Russian TV presenter Vladimir Solovyov and which first aired in Russia on
April 26. VPE had previously made Crimea: The Way Back Home
available for English viewers, and we recommend that readers
check that one out too.
The film contains never-seen-before footage from some of the biggest
highlights of Putin's career, and of Russia's history for the last decade
and a half: the war in Chechnya, the battle with the oligarchs, the Kursk
submarine tragedy, Beslan, the 2008 crisis. Among the revelations Putin
makes in his interview sections is the admission of direct involvement of
Western intelligence agencies in supporting Islamic terrorism in Chechnya.
no surprise to the alternative media, it's the first time Putin has
officially confirmed such involvement. Nothing has changed since the CIA
created the mujaheddin to battle the Soviets in Afghanistan. (Note: if the
