Putin>>>>>>>>>>>Gorbachev and Yeltsin. Shouldn't be compared at all.
At least the guy did not run off with billions of the people's money and abandon the economy to a shithole.
Instead during his presidency, the economy bounced back for awhile, the GDP expanded, poverty decreased by close to 50% and the amount of monthly income increased. Of course that was for about close to a decade until things are starting to slowly drop again, unfortunately.
But yeah Safin will probably use that MP power/status to use his influence on sports facilities and opportunities for athletic youngsters and whatnot lol.
this. a million times this.
but you're mostly dealing with a bunch of deluded ignorant westerners here
