    Большинство аналогий натянуты, некоторые факты перепутали. Господин Зорин замечательный ученый, но, кажется, другой специализации) та же Дума, если вдумчиво посмотреть, при Николае 2 имела фактически куда больше полномочий и часто правительству приходилось искать компромисс с Думой, не так, как сейчас) президент П. учился по советским учебникам и сам человек советский, эти аналогии с императорами ни к чему)

    This video didn't really have anything interesting, it only says that Putin wants to be like a Tsar which is what many people would already think and really doesn't help to create a serious and deep discusion about the topic.

    Курганский губернатор заявил, что красть в регионе больше нечего...
    В pосeи, только официально, зарегистрировано: - алкоголиков - свыше 4 580 000, - наркоманов - более 8 870 000, - психически больных - 978 000, - больных туберкулезом - около 890 000, - ВИЧ-инфицированных - не менее 2 380 000 (оценочное количество; официально зарегистрированных примерно в два раза меньше). Сегодня РФ занимает первое место в мире: - по уровню умышленных убийств; - по числу курящих детей и подростков; - по числу взяток при поступлении в вузы; - по темпам роста табакокурения; - по аварийности на дорогах; - по смертности от самоубийств среди подростков 15-19 лет (и среди мужчин в целом); - по абсолютной величине убыли населения; - по количеству самоубийств среди пожилых людей (низкая пенсия или ее отсутствие!); - по числу детей, брошенных родителями; - по смертности от заболеваний сердечно-сосудистой системы; - по числу пациентов с заболеваниями психики; - по объемам торговли людьми; - по количеству абортов и материнской смертности; - по объёму потребления героина - 21% мирового производства; - по потреблению спирта и спиртосодержащей продукции; - по темпам прироста ВИЧ-инфицированных; - по количеству авиакатастроф (в 13 раз больше среднемирового уровня);. Россия потребляет более 20% всего героина, производимого в мире, примерно 300 тонн в год, это около $36 млрд. Россия занимает третье место в мире по числу наркоманов, на первых двух - Афганистан и Иран. Дети и молодые люди в России в год тратят на наркотики 2,5 миллиарда долларов. Каждый день в России около 100 человек умирает из-за передозировки наркотиков. Росстат в 2014 году провел аналитическое исследование распределения доходов среди населения страны. Оказалось, 90,9% населения жили в нищете или балансировали на черте бедности. (В середине 2019 года, по данным Росстата, 40% населения выживали - не жили - с душевым доходом не более 20 000 рублей в месяц. Доля лиц "со средним доходом, состоятельных и богатых" в 2019 году, как и в 2014 году, была меньше 10% населения.) Естественная убыль населения России, по данным Счетной палаты, ускоряется четвертый год подряд. Так, за первые восемь месяцев 2019 года она составила 219,2 тысячи человек, что в 1,3 раза больше аналогичного показателя в 2018 году. (Ожидается, что эта убыль за весь 2019 год достигнет 280 тысяч человек, а в 2020 году, в рамках усиливающегося кризиса, может превысить 300 тысяч человек, чего не было с 2006 года.) В январе - августе 2019 года численность населения России сократилась на 52,5 тысячи человек и составила на 1 сентября 2019 года 146,7 млн человек. При этом миграционный прирост компенсировал естественную убыль населения только на 76%.

    This seems poorly informed. Putin openly criticizes both the Bolsheviks and the Communists on various Русские новости stations, it can be found easily on youtube channels like Russia Insight, Russia Today, etc. I doubt he had any difficulty (as referred to in this video) at the time this was published.

    Romanov's were killed by Jewish Bolsheviks (Marxism itself was started by a Jew, Karl Marx). Bolsheviks were led by Lenin who was Jewish(grandfather) , Trotsky who was Jewish, and Stalin. Stalin eventually sent many jews to the gulag. The chief executor of the Romanovs was also Jewish acting under Lenin's order Yakov Yurovsky. Half of the executioners were also Jewish, along with much of the Cheka leadership. They wanted to get revenge on the tsar and also because they would be able to flourish under communism.

    Yeltsin broke away from the "democracy" by shooting his own parliament in 1993 with tanks and establishing strictly presidential respublic instead of mixed presidential/parliamentary one. Putin just continues what Yeltsin has begun.

    The Putin remains in power and does not have a real competitor, is simply his success in the economy - a thing that is very hard to achieve.

    Why don't you people understand that the worlds oligarchy is ruling the world.
    Not some elected officials in Washington Berlin or Paris or for that matter any city in the world.
    With the election process we are under the illusion that we make the decisions.
    Putin is the only one between us and them the oligarchy and the rest of us.They hate him just like they hated Roosvelt.
    So be supportive of him.
    Stop believing in the propaganda of the corporate media.

      The whole world. And it's not just the American industrialist. It's a global network of the ultra wealthy. The Rothschilds are at the top. They and a hand full of others want to control it all. And the Rothschilds are not Americans. It started with them centuries ago.
