Russia - worrying?
« on: February 28, 2015, 02:44:AM »
With the Russian invasion of the Ukraine and their reluctance to stick to any ceasefire. They have increased their spending on defence - and today

Putin reminds me of Hitler - he needs stopping because he is certainly up to something!

I agree, it's often said Russians don't understand democracy, at the moment they appear to be proving that.  Hopefully this morning's news about the killing of a prominent  government opposition leader may wake them up to the danger of Putin's behaviour.

Russia have been rumbling on for years. On my last flight over that country,the passenger plane I was travelling in,was escorted either side of the craft,by two fighter jets because of being in their air-space.It was,and felt rather intimidating as the pilot had to remain silent for the 3 odd hours it took to fly over the country.He wasn't allowed to make contact of any sort to anyone as we headed towards Orly airport.
Gorbachov was the best leader they had.He was more " human ".

Putin is ex KGB as Gorbachov is but they seem very different, it's my guess Putin ticks quite a few boxes on the Bob Hare checklist.

I agree nugs, we don't know, it seems Russia is becoming a lawless country anyway.  Interesting they are trying to blame the killing on someone from his own side but must say it sounds pretty fishy to me.  Putin appears to wield massive power, he really seems to be a dictator in all but name, I'm afraid.

It could be anyone that's true but Putin isn't a guy I'd want as an enemy.   :'(

What are Russian military planes doing in our territories? They send them her unannounced, and twice there have been near-collisions with Dansh passenger planes. WTF are they doing here? I have heard they send them to England too.

I  think Putin is stark raving mad and he IS up to something. We´ll see.

BTW, what´s with his discrimination of gay people? He is nuts.

Probably because he is not gay. He's probably quite miserable really? ;D

Billions of pounds worth of arms have been supplied to these dictatorship countries,including Russia,which have been supplied by-----------------guess who ? The UK. 
I don't hear Cameron making much noise over this latest shooting,or the poisoning of Litvinenko ( which happened in this country )
