    Putin's Kleptocracy: Who Owns Russia? By Karen Dawisha

    Vladimir Putin has been ruling Russia since 1999. In that time he has shaped the country into an authoritarian and militaristic society. The Soviet Union dissolved into 15 new countries, including the new Russian Federation. In Putin’s eyes, Russia had just lost 2 million square miles of territory. But Putin’s regime has also developed and fostered the most effect cyber hacker army in the world and he’s used it to wreak havoc in the West. But the election of Donald Trump brings new hope for the Putin vision. Trump’s rhetoric has been notably soft on Russia. He could lift sanctions and weaken NATO, potentially freeing up space for Putin’s Russia to become a dominant power once again.

    Last time a Russian peasant changed the course of history, his name was Rasputin. Putin will also have a hand in changing history. He's already armed N. Korea with nukes, along with Chinese support in the background. The goal will be simple, nuke NY, and destroy the economical structure of Babylon the great.

    While many things shown here are true, there seems to be a weird agenda to this video, especially about hacking, I have never heard anything about hackers begining the conflict in the Ukrain, also I heavily doubt, to say the least, that Russian hackers had anything to do with paries on the right wing winning in elections in Europe, especially in Latvia, as shown in the video, that for a fact I know is complete bs

    US is the main side of every conflict and misery in the world.

    Why US support opposite regimes neighbors to Russia and Iran and other countries in the world

    Why US have hundreds of army bases 10,000 km far from USA and next to the borders of Iran and Russia
    If Iran or Russia do such similar things what do USA do

    Why USA created ISIS

    USA make all miseries in the world.

    In 2008 Russia did not invade Georgia. It was Georgia that attacked Ossetia and Abkhazia which Russia protected. This video is full of BS !!!

    • Edwin Subijano

      Also, the war in Syria which started in 2011 was not a civil war. Assad was supported by the great majority of the Syrian people. It was actually an invasion by a proxy army of terrorists hired by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, US and Israel to topple down the Syrian government. And the reason for the invasion you may ask? It was because the Syrian government refused to allow a gas pipeline from Qatar to Europe (through its territory) which would have competed with Russian gas in Europe. This refusal was Syria's sovereign right but the western imperialists were greedy and so tried to destroy Syria !!! It's really a simple story !!!
