President of Russia Vladimir Putin: How did you end up here? This is a just a small provincial town. These days, you find French people wherever you go in Russia, in every village. This is very good and we are pleased to see it.
Question (retranslated): Mr President, could you explain why you are not going to Paris?
Vladimir Putin: It’s very simple. We had planned to hold an official opening ceremony for the newly built Russian religious and cultural centre in Paris. From the looks of things though, this is not the best moment for official meetings, given the lack of mutual understanding, to put it mildly, that we have over events in Syria, particularly the situation in Aleppo. But we are always open, of course, to any consultations and dialogue on this matter.
Question: This is exactly what the French hoped for – to use this opportunity to discuss the situation in Syria, but it is for this reason that you are renouncing this visit.
Vladimir Putin: You know, it is not that we are renouncing the visit, but simply that we were told that the main reason for this visit, namely, opening the religious and cultural centre, is not appropriate at this moment. But if the main reason for my visit to Paris is not appropriate, we will probably find another opportunity to meet and discuss Syria. We set no limitations concerning this matter and we are open for dialogue.
It’s simply that it was made known to us that now is not the most convenient time for the events that were planned, that’s all. We are not renouncing the visit.
Question: Many Western representatives, including [US Secretary of State John] Kerry, [French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc] Ayrault and even [French President] Francois Hollande have used tough rhetoric against Russia over the airstrikes against Aleppo, which have hit civilian targets and even hospitals. Some have even used expressions such as “war crimes.” What is your response to this?
Vladimir Putin: I would say this is political rhetoric that does not have great significance and does not take into account the real situation in Syria. Let me explain what I mean. I believe deeply that some of the responsibility for what is happening in the region in general and in Syria in particular lies especially with our Western partners, above all the USA and its allies, including the main European countries.
Remember how everyone rushed to support the Arab Spring? Where is that optimism now? How did it all end? Remember what Libya or Iraq looked like before these countries and their organisations were destroyed as states by our Western partners’ forces?
Certainly, these were not examples of democracies as we understand the word today, and there probably was a need and possibility to influence these societies’ organisation, the state organisation, and the nature of these regimes. But whatever the case, these states showed no signs of terrorism. They were not a threat for Paris, for the Cote d’Azur, for Belgium, for Russia, or for the United States.
Now, they are the source of terrorist threats. Our goal is to prevent the same from happening in Syria.
I know your question about refugees. This is what you wanted to ask, it seems? If not, let me address this question all the same. Let’s recall that the refugee problem began long before Russia started making efforts to normalise and stabilise the situation in Syria. The mass departure of people from huge swathes of the Middle East and from Africa and Afghanistan too began long before we started active operations in Syria.
There is no justification for accusing Russia of being responsible for the refugee problem. Our aim is, on the contrary, to create conditions for people to be able to return to their homes.
Regarding the humanitarian situation in Aleppo, have we all forgotten how American forces launched an airstrike in Afghanistan that hit a hospital and killed people from Doctors without Borders among others? Entire wedding parties of up to 100 people were killed in Afghanistan. Look at what has just happened in Yemen, where a single strike killed 170 people and injured 500 at a funeral ceremony.
The sad reality is that wherever military operations take place, innocent people suffer and die. But we cannot allow terrorists to hide between civilians used as a human shield. We cannot allow them to blackmail the entire world when they take hostages, kill, or behead people.
If we want to win the fight against terrorism, we must fight the terrorists and not let them take the lead, not waver and retreat.
Question: Mr President, the thing is that the French do not understand why you are bombing these people you call terrorists. After all, it was ISIS who attacked us, but there are no ISIS forces in Aleppo. This is what the French do not understand.
Vladimir Putin: Let me explain. It is another terrorist group, Jabhat al-Nusra, that controls the situation in Aleppo. This group was always considered a wing of Al Qaeda and is included in the UN’s list of terrorist organisations.
What we find particularly depressing and hard to understand is that our partners, especially the Americans, are always finding a way to try to exclude this group from the list of terrorist organisations. Let me tell you why. It seems to us as though our partners are always repeating the same mistake. They want to use these terrorist organisations’ and radicals’ combat potential to pursue their own political aims, in this case, to combat President Assad and his government, and do not understand that they cannot simply stall them [the rebels] and get them to live by civilised rules after they have tasted victory over someone.
We have reached repeated agreements with the Americans that they will differentiate between Jabhat al-Nusra and its like and the so-called healthy opposition forces, including in Aleppo. They have agreed that this is necessary. What’s more, we have even agreed on concrete deadlines, but nothing is done from one month to the next.
We recently reached a ceasefire agreement, a D-day agreement, as our American friends said. I insisted that they first of all resolve the matter of separating Jabhat al-Nusra and other terrorists from the healthy opposition forces and only then declare the ceasefire.
But the Americans insisted that we first need to declare a ceasefire and then they will take care of separating the terrorists from the non-terrorists. Finally, we agreed to make concessions, agreed to their terms, and on September 12 declared a day of silence and cessation of hostilities. On September 16, American aircraft launched a strike against Syrian army forces that killed 80 people.
At this same moment, immediately after the airstrike, ISIS launched an offensive in this very same place. Our American colleagues told us that this airstrike was made by error. This error cost the lives of 80 people and, also just coincidence, perhaps, ISIS took the offensive immediately afterwards.
At the same time, lower down the ranks, at the operations level, one of the American military service personnel said quite frankly that they spent several days preparing this strike. How could they make an error if they were several days in preparation?
This is how our ceasefire agreement ended up broken. Who broke the agreement? Was it us? No.
Question: The possibility of a new cold war is being discussed, but there is at least one American who likes you – Donald Trump. What do you think about him? Do you like him?
Vladimir Putin: We like everyone. America is a great country, and Americans are interesting, amiable and talented people. They are a great people and nation.
We will work with whomever the Americans elect. Of course, it is easier to work with those who are willing to work with you. If Trump says he wants to work with Russia, we appreciate this. But it must be mutually honest.
Look, everyone is talking about humanitarian access in Aleppo. Everyone is trying to convince us that we should do this. But they do not need to convince us, because we believe it too, we believe that a humanitarian convoy should be sent there. But how can this be accomplished? There is only one road the convoys can take, with militants on one side of the road and the Syrian army on the other side. We know about the provocation, the attack on one of the convoys, and we know for certain that the attack was delivered by a terrorist group.
We have suggested that the militants and the Syrian army both pull away from the road, providing safe transit for the humanitarian convoys.
Everyone agrees, and the idea has even been put on paper, and then nothing happens; none of our partners are doing anything. They either do not want to or cannot pull the militants back, I do not know which.
An exotic proposal has been made – I am going to surprise you and your audience. It has been proposed that our armed units, Russian military personnel, be deployed on the road to ensure transit safety. The Russian military, who are courageous and decisive people, have said they would do it.
But I told them that this could only be done jointly with the US, and ordered them to make the proposal. We have proposed this, and they [the Americans] promptly refused. They do not want to deploy their troops there, but they also do not want to pull these opposition groups back, who are really terrorists. What can we do in this situation?
We must increase mutual trust and admit that these are common threats, and it is only together that we can curtail and eradicate them.
We have very good ties with the French intelligence services. They really do work on the same wave. This is true of our counterterrorism experts and their counterparts in France and several other European countries. But this is not always the case.
For example, we send our American partners information and often get no response at all. Some time ago, we sent information on the Tsarnaev brothers. We sent the first document, got no response, sent a second document, and got the response that this is not your business, they are US citizens now and we will take care of things ourselves.
The result was a terrorist attack in the USA. Is this not an example of how we end up with losses if we neglect cooperation in this very sensitive area?
We should be busy not with political rhetoric, but with looking for solutions to the situation, including in Syria. What solutions are there? There is only one solution – to convince all parties to the conflict to take the road of political settlement.
I reached an agreement with President Assad and he has accepted to take the road of adopting a new constitution and holding elections on the basis of this constitution. But we have not succeeded in convincing anyone else to take this road.
If the people do not vote for President Assad, there will be a democratic change of power, but without the help of armed intervention from outside and under strict international control, under UN supervision. I do not understand who could find this proposal unacceptable.
It is a democratic solution to the question of power in the country. We remain optimistic though and hope that we will finish by persuading our colleagues and partners that this is the only possible solution to the problem.
Putin the the puppet master.
YouTube Title “A moment of humor: Putin, Clinton and trump debates through the prism of choreography” … mod-hs
Excellent interview – gets all the points across without being distracted by nonsense.
According to The interviewer the french don’t understand that there are other terrorists apart from isis??
The french are not that dumb surely?
The US wanted Russisn troops on the ground to bomb them it is clear
The french are not that dumb surely?
No, only the journalists are (and I’m only half joking).
Would you like to bet on that? As in all of the west the greater part are indeed so.
Why Putin could be completely wrong about Trump
Moscow has expressed no opinion on the elections
The U.S. media keep saying they back trump which is a lot of nonsense
Russia has no view just as they had no view on brexit
Clinton is going to win anyway so trump is irrelevant
That is not entirely true. They have said that they do not understand US democracy, based on the election farce/tragedy.
Whoa, Trump just held an amazing speech against globalism.
This is your hero. The man in whom “will overthrow the Anglo-Zionist world order”.
“Vladimir Putin: We like everyone. America is a great country, and Americans are interesting, amiable and talented people. They are a great people and nation”.
Never does even a minor USA politician praise Russia. Much less a President. This is the continuing bowing down of Russia, because they know in reality USA is much stronger than them. They admire america. Young russians in their jeans and leather jackets eating burgers are as much a part of the western degenerated world as Americans are. Quit this admiration of Putin.
It is called being polite. Why are you trying to divide people?
You just have to learn how a truly skilled politician makes his points without getting all feisty like a hormonal teenager. Russian politicians are happened to be professional, and saying few good words about people of another nation is not a sign of weakness – it is a sign of maturity and strength. As soon as things being uttered one can not take it back, hence the art of political wisdom belongs to those who can control their emotions.
I don’t see it that way, I see Putin as a leader who has a tremendous patience and a very cool nerve system. Many of us have been pushed the red button much much earlier, but we don’t know what Putin does. One thing is clear, the time is coming.
Know your Enemy, that is the clou!
There is nothing wrong with what was said – he is a president who represents a great people.
I don’t understand why you want gone to be abusive and vulgar – leave that to obama and kerry and Johnson and all the vulgar reset who thtown insults around then expect to be trusted and respected.
Divide and rule, the shlomo way of psywar.
You are as immature and childish as the Americans, steeped as they are in the hubristic myth of their non-existent invincibility. Unlike you, Putin is not a reckless irrational hothead, and like most Russians abhors war and violence, but will not shirk from waging it ruthlessly if attacked.
You do not seem to realise that Putin is very well aware of America’s power, has taken the measure of it, and he is not afraid of it. He has made it clear to the Americans that he has the means and the will to inflict severe pain and losses on them. Why do you think the Americans backed down after publicly declaring their intentions to bomb the Syrian army, only for the Russians to make it crystal clear that they will shoot down US planes if they dare?
At their core, the American leaders who order the deaths of foreigners are basically spineless cowards unable to accept or tolerate pain when the boot is on the other foot, and Russians will have no qualms or mercy when it comes to inflicting pain on the US, but they don’t have to. Its up to Obama and the rest of the neocon band of merry clowns to decide when they’ll come down to earth.
Is Hasbara moving to North Africa?
Dutch comedian Wim Sonneveld once said in a sketch about a person he really didn’t like and wanted gone: “I praise him, I praise him straight into his grave!”.
Now if you can’t understand the meaning of the diplomatic wording of chess players like Lavrov and VVP then please don’t comment here. You’re only ridiculing yourself.
Have a really nice day! (Did you get that?)
Or as Winston Churchill once said.
Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip.
Good one! I should add that I do not see anything wrong about Putin being polite. What is really crazy and stupid is someone called a diplomatic threatening Russia and the whole world, like many American politicians do ie. Sam Powers, Vicky “cookies” Nudeland, Hitlery Clinton, etc. These attitude is interpreted by Chinese for instance as a sign of weakness.
That meaning is the same as from j’accuse.
Tell me, Maghreb, how is your lifestyle so different from those you describe and indirectly criticize? Is how you live completely outside the influences of amerikan culture?
And I must ask, in what way are you personally working toward the “overthrow” of the “anglo-zionist” world order?
Putin’s continued politeness must drive Western politicians and reporters crazy.
No hands up some beauty skirt, no sorded locker room rumors, no Keeler mistress. Just a judu meatbag with ………….. A BRAIN. Maddening!!
A civilised person resists abandoning his or her standards just because the most primitive uncivilised savage in the room doesn’t have any.
A very fine debate, explanations.
Why is Putin even talking to the mainstream media in Europe or USA?? By doing so he validates their positions news gatekeepers.
Lavrov just recently gave an interview to CNN Christiane Amanpour. Why?? Do they honestly believe they will not be edited and drowned out until it fits their narrative.
I’ d like to see Putin or Lavrov be interviewed by an independent news outlet, or even a blogger.
Imagine what it would do to the traffic of a blog site if they were to post an exclusive interview by Putin.
This is how Mr Putin wins hearts and minds of ppl in the west in general and US in particular. Its smart move. What did you expect him to say? ”I hate America, hate americans”? it will only confirm what zio MSM was saying. So no he is on right track, its smart.
When Turkey downed russian bomber, did Russia rush to attack Turkey? no..get it?
Totally agree. My point was why give interviews to propagandists.
Why not go to some small, independent and genuine journalists/bloggers?
Preaching to the choir, while laudable, doesn’t reach the masses who have fallen victim to MSM and western propaganda. What Putin says in these quiet interviews doesn’t validate any of the MSM hatred they have learned and might, just might, sow some tiny seeds of doubt about the BS that continually gets shovelled at them.
Refusing to be interviewed can only be described as arrogance…so better be interviewed.
Good idea about being interviewed by independent news agencies/blogs though.
Lavrov is meeting kerry on the 15/10/16
According to the Guardian newspaper in UK
The meeting will take place in Switzerland. If they negotiate another ceasfire you know Russia is finished.
Iran will not agree Syria will not Agee
they do it, that you and we learn, that it’s necessary
Then you do not understand the diplomatic protocol.
They, Russia in general and these two men in particular while they are well known not to say famous in the world, are following the rules of diplomacy and of course combined with clear politics as well.
As an extra for us, the not-Russians, the Russians are thinkers as well and … they have patience and can wait. Does not mean they sit still and wait. As we know they are mostly a minimum of one step ahead.
We the West have no patience anymore. We want instant result. Wrong. Not Russia.
Please this is nothing personal.
Of course the US and its Anglosphere and EU vassals cannot cooperate with Putin: he is reasonable and sane and the US is ruled by lunatics.
Oh, yeah, definitively, the time of “plain language” has arrived:
It’s kinda relief for me and I fear some other people here, am I wrong?
Thanks for posting that. Mr Ushakov really captures in his polite words, the rudeness of the French president – he does so without being abusive. No one can be in any doubt about the rude behaviour.
That language is still couched with diplomacy. The real plain language should be:
“The host invited the guest, then he started insulting the guest and his country with the most vile language expected from a French ‘pute’. “
Preaching to the Choir. How few of you here understand the meaning of this phrase.
We ‘awake’ people ‘cheer’ interviews like this- and see them of further proof of how ‘right’ Russia is, and how ‘wrong’ the West is. But we are *fooling* ourselves. *Only* people who are already awake and *know* this truth already watch these interviews. Preaching to the Choir.
Meanwhile AFP, or AP or Reuters, or CNN or the BBC or ITN edits and censors these materials until the message they seemingly contain is the very *opposite* of what we see- then they feed that lying garbage to the sheeple intermixed with other material that ‘proves’ just how rotten Putin is.
We try to tell ourselves that access to the raw feed or uncensored transcript will convert more sheeple to ‘awake’ status, and to a very limited extent this is true. But meanwhile the twisted, censored, recut version of the interview, spewed out by the zionist mainstream media, will reinforce the Russia hated POV of far more sheeple.
You *cannot* beat the Demons with ‘civilised’ discussion. The Demons draw power from the sheeple like the Human batteries in the Matrix movie. The Demons talk to the sheeple direct, loudly- and dominate all they read and hear. The sheeple in their turn adopt a Demon friendly mindset, from which the Demons draw their actual strength and vitality.
To ‘win’, Putin must break the Demon’s most prized assets, and at this time in Human History, the no.1 asset is the House of Saud and the perfectly evil wahhabi cult it controls. Cut this head off, and the Demonic control over the Human Race falters and fades to near zero.
The House of Saud were publicly and proudly trading in Human rape slaves until 1962 (NINETEEN 62 – go google it). After rape slavery was reluctantly ‘banned’ in 1962, Saudi elites continues their ‘ownership’ of tens of thousands of rape slaves with America and Britain’s full awareness well into the 1980s. When British pervert, Lawrence of Arabia, created Saudi Arabia on behalf of the British government, it was soley so the Arab tribes could continue their trade in rape slaves. Britain’s prior policy of opposing the trade in Human slaves was officially reversed- and the trade blossomed again, especially with assistance from the French government, all across the Middle East and North Africa well into the second half of the 20th Century.
Did you know that when Saudi Arabia could no longer obtain ‘white’ rape slaves from lands now associated with the ex-Soviet Empire, it settled for ‘whiteish’ rape slaves from Yemen – the main reason Saudi monsters think they can genocide the Yemen population today.
Taking on the Demons that control the Deep State can seem a depressingly difficult task. But taking out their prize jewel, Saudi Arabia, is child’s play- when every official act by Saudi Arabia is seen as an unthinkable evil by even the most loyal sheeple. Putin’s support is all that stops the House of Saud from meeting its just end. In the mind’s of the sheeple, the rulers of SA are like Hitler to the power infinity. So why would Putin risk WW3 rather than dismanting the Demon power play that has SA as a central pivot?
You made some very valid points and I fully agree with you about pointless and even prejudicial interviews with the loudspeakers of the Western hegemonic imperialism. If one cares to look, the interviewer sets the scene, the context and the narrative and puts the interviewee on the defensive back foot trying to justify the accusations. This type of interviews end up reinforcing the readers/viewers negative image of Putin and Russia, even without editing.
There was a similar one with Mr. Putin’s foreign affairs advisor Kagaranov yesterday to Spiegel and that was another pitiful demonstration the way the western media make the Russians look like second rate clowns.
As to the destruction of the Terrorist kingdom, that would be the second most generous gift the Russians could give to humanity (the first would be incinerating the white house and capitol with all their occupants) and make the world a much better place, and a crippling blow to the hegemon. All the free world would cheer and Mr Putin’s would indeed be celebrated now and forever.
And quoting, “You *cannot* beat the Demons with ‘civilised’ discussion.”
This is completely wrong. By engaging in civilised discussion you demonstrate exactly who it is that is civilised and who it is that is not. It may take time, but so what if it does? If you abandon your civilisation, abandon your principles and lower yourself to the level of the uncivilised savage how are you any different to that which you pretend to oppose? For it is correct that if you do abandon your principles you are unprincipled. If you do abandon civilisation, then it is you who are uncivilsed.
Now civilised discussion does not mean weakness. Far from it. It takes real moral strength to do it when facing the extreme provocation of the uncivilsed. Nevertheless one ought to always have confidence in one’s principles, even when the going gets slow and rugged and difficult. That is the time of test, when one ought to remain consistent.
So have courage. Do not despair. Don’t degenerate.
Boris Johnson calling! Boris Johnson calling!
The ever duplicitous island vassal joins the chorus of R2P- protection that is of the mercenary head choppers. He is feeling his oats now that he has entered the lofty ranks of those able to dish out ‘kinetics’.
Pathetic isn’t it?
West must stop ‘pulverisation’ of Aleppo – Boris Johnson
Oh, look! Isn’t that one of those white-hat head chopper assistants running in the picture?
Barrel bombs, white hats -all are there in the article. But where’s Putin? Some BBC propagandist was apparently asleep at the wheel.
Putin was a 1000 times better in this interview than that karaganov critter was in that der spiegel zio-faggotry.
still trust Turkey??
EL-KUWAIT, October 13. /TASS/. An improvement in relations between Turkey and Russia doesn’t mean that “Ankara is ready to change its position on Syria and (President) Assad,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Thursday after a meeting between the Gulf Cooperation Council and Turkey in Riyadh.
Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir, in turn, expressed hope that “the improved relations between Moscow and Ankara will have a positive impact on the solution of the Syrian crisis.”
Earlier Cavusoglu had called upon the Russian authorities to “halt bombardments and ease the humanitarian aid deliveries to Aleppo.”
and Iraq most unhappy Turkish troops going to Mosul………………….
Turkish service personnel are said to have been invited to the Bashiqa camp in northern Iraq by local authorities to train Peshmerga and Turkmen fighters in counterterrorism operations ahead of an operation to free the Daesh-held city of Mosul, but Ankara could have an ulterior motive, Aydın Selcen, Turkey’s former envoy to Erbil, told Sputnik.
Aydın Selcen, who served as Turkey’s consul general in the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan since 2010 until 2013, specifically mentioned Atheel al-Nujaifi, the former governor of the Nineveh province, and the leadership of Iraqi Kurdistan as those who asked Ankara for assistance. “However, one could read between the lines that [by sending its troops to Iraq] Turkey is trying to prevent the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) located close to Sinjar from strengthening its positions and establishing closer links between Sinjar and Qandil,” he said. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his supporters view the PKK as a militant organization trying to destabilize Turkey from within and by joining forces with other Kurdish groups in neighboring countries. Ankara has been locked in a decades-long standoff with the PKK at home. Last year authorities launched a major military operation in southeastern regions of Turkey, populated mostly by the Kurds. © AP PHOTO/ MAYA ALLERUZZO Attack on Mosul: Why It Matters So Much to Turkey Aydın Selcen further noted that Turkey deployed approximately 2,000 soldiers and some military equipment to the Bashiqa camp, which is not enough for a large-scale operation as the upcoming offensive on Mosul. This could serve as tacit confirmation that Ankara is pursuing other objectives in the region. On Tuesday, Erdogan asserted that Turkish troops will take part in the operation to liberate Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq, something Baghdad strongly opposes since Iraqi leadership has not authorized Turkey’s deployment. “We do not need to receive permission for this, we are not planning to get it,” Erdogan claimed. A day later, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus reiterated that “Turkey does not move on orders from others… Turkey’s presence in the Bashiqa camp will remain until Mosul is rid of Daesh.”

Russia is scrabbling around looking for allies in a world where russophobia is becoming ever more common. Russian activities in Crimea have frightened them. Many countries control disputed territories and worry that a Crimea style operation may happen to them. Thats what happened to India, formerly one of USSR biggest friends. Now India is pro west very much. Russia cannot pick and choose its allies now. Duterte in Phillipines is a welcome addition but pro Russian countries are few. Belarus, Venzuela, Bolivia, Angola, Laos.. who else?
There is no russophobia as such. What you see is a gigantic MSM campaign against Russia from media controlled by the Zionazis in countries whose governments are controlled by the US specially in west Europe. You for instance read something very negative even in an english newspaper! but the when you go to the comments section you realize that people in general think completely different, ie lots of people are now able to see through the MSM lies.
One day, you, me, the world would appreciate what Russia is doing today. I certainly do not want to live in the world where US hegemon is rulling with baseball bat in one hand and whip in other hand. There might be a few Russia’s allies now due to full control over its puppets US have, but this is going to change in near futre. Sit, watch, enjoy.
Perhaps a read of history will show his absence a grace. The wheel of fate spins the fabric of our lives. And so the journey continues but the clarions resounding chills bone.
What do you expect from the French… They started a revolution to get rid of a king and ended up with an emperor… This slimy Hollande is going to retire soon, but not his illegl forces in Libya, Syria, Sub Sahara etc… And the Sarkozy rubbish is trying to come back with b++ch Carla. With their Corsican drug and TNT smugglers. Charlie Hebdo case under military secret, because the secret is established by the murderers themselves.
an interesting idea?

Italian lawmaker Stefano Valdegamberi said Ukraine had to compensate for the Veneto region’s economic losses inflicted by the EU’s anti-Russia sanctions.Italy’s Veneto region has lost over $1 billion due to the EU sanction policy against Russia, Stefano Valdegamberi, a member of the region’s parliament, told reporters, adding that it is Ukraine that should pay damages.
“Veneto region lost over $1 billion because of sanctions that are meaningless and counterproductive,” Valdegamberi said. “Ukraine needs to pay damages to Veneto region as it provoked these sanctions. We want money to be paid back, we want this money back to Veneto,” reports Sputnik.
Valdegamberi is a member of the Italian delegation of businessmen and lawmakers from the national parliament and local councils that had arrived in Crimea for a three-day visit. The delegates are expected to sign memorandums with Russia in political, cultural and economic spheres.
DONi News Agency
Italy lost a lot of money due to Anti Russia sanctions especially the wine, foods & auto industrys. The Italians are the most Pro Russian people in europe. Socialist EU liberals in italy ruin the economy and bring slavery of Italy to IMF/EU/Anglo/Germany. Middle East people should out reach to Italy and be an ally as well. Spain, Portugal and Italy are part of the greater Middle east region, all had Islam at various points in history. The non wahabist, Traditionalist Middle Eastern mind is at home in these regions. For us these Meditereaneans are our brothers and natural behaviour. The Anglo North Europe mentality is something wrong and bizare compared to these people.
Ironically United Russias’ most similar party in historic europe was Mussolini’s National Fascist Unity party. It is State Nationalist, Militarist, traditionalist and with non individualist Patriotism in the central ideology. Very different to Nazi Germanic supremacy, Jewish Bolshevik, Anglo Free Market or Euroliberalism.
Quoting, “Spain, Portugal and Italy are part of the greater Middle east region, all had Islam at various points in history.”
They may have been invaded and occupied by worshippers of Islam religion at various points in history, but they are not part of the “greater Middle east region”. Next thing you’ll be alleging that Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, Greece, Hungary, etc etc are part of the ” greater Middle east region” as well. After all they also had the pleasure of invasion and occupation by legions of worshippers of Islam in their history.
You know, it would be better if people with religious and racial fixations just left people alone. Let other people get on with their own lives. There is no need to deliver violence upon them.
Very wise comment. Bravo!
A true statesman – amazing to see and hear this rare bird in the wild these days, is it not?
He basically just openly said (repeated?) that the Americans let the Boston bombing happen.
I guess we won’t see that as an MSM headline any time soon.
listening to that man
again and again
to me only one term comes
he is a world teacher
glad to breath the same air
