Comments on: Want to know Vladimir Putin’s secrets?

The Russians must be shown only the retouched photos. But hey, show me a world leader who looks unfazed when they don’t get their own way, and I’ll show you a world leader with some payback already in the pipeline.

Could we get as phrenology reading, or how about some seer casts his horoscope or reads the cards. I’d bet that and American, reading facial expressions with no knowledge of the Russian mentality or temperament, is just asking for another dose of ‘cakewalk’.

All the propaganda is just a cover for the greatest criminal organization in the history of the world. The face of fear is the fear of punishment for crimes committed.

As John McCain once said, Russia is a gas station masquerading as a country.

Putin is the leader of a vast oligarchic mob of criminals looting the natural resources of their nation for their own personal gain. He stirs up trouble with the West as device for distracting the Russian population from his many financial misdeeds.

Apparently, destroying the Russian economy and reducing the standard of living for all Russians is just “playing to the base”. Same strategy used by redstate governors here in the USA who refuse to accept Federal subsidies for their citizens under Obamacare.

If they all just committed suicide, think how happy everybody would be!

Is this article another manifestation of that – of real inability to find out anything about Putin’s secrets, which tempts people to look for shortcuts – hey, I know what the guy wants, just look at his face? Silly.
That’s not to say Putin does not deserve criticism – he does. But the Putin-centrism of too much of the current Russian debate is, I think, a sign of a very important misunderstanding among Western pundits and media. They seem to think Putin is their only problem; take care of Putin (learn to read his face etc.), and the Russian people will “change their ways” and “start to behave.” Wrong. Throughout his rule, Putin – for good or bad – has not done a single thing ordinary Russians would not want him to do or that would run contrary to their interests. So if someone thinks Russian conduct is a problem, they have a problem with the Russian people, not the Russian president. If you are aware about Russian people’s interests and are ready to accommodate them (to an extent), you don’t need to try reading Putin’s faces.
