The fact is that today Putin has unprecedented support of “average Russians” and Russia is more prosperous and free than any time in the past. Since Putin was elected, the GDP has tripled and the wages doubled. After a 300% increase in GDP, a 5% decline is a drop in the bucket, and support for Putin reflects that perception.

Reuters has a reputation for honest journalism. This article could have been written by the Ministry of Propaganda.

When was Putin’s re-election ever a problem? Since 1999 he has been systematically “re-elected”, unless you count that stint with Medvedev from 2008 to 2012 as Putin not being in power.

The fact that in 1999 he was “nominated” to the Russian presidency, not elected, and that he has ever since been in power (for now 16 years…) shows that elections in Russia are everything but free. He will certainly be re-elected for life.

This passes for journalism today? They only insight I got from reading this article was – the author was instructed to publish a russia-hating flavor arcticle, but being clueless on the subject, he fumbled the task.

Western sanctions and the end of his on-again, off-again romance with the West have left him isolated internationally.”

Isolated ?
“The worse Russia’s relations are with the West, the closer Russia will want to be to China. If China supports you, no one can say you’re isolated,” said Vasily Kashin, a China expert at the Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST) think thank.
INSIGHT-Putin looks to Asia as West threatens to isolate Russia

They are using negotiations and friendly commerce to better their country and those they have dealings with. What a concept..
Russia, the biggest country in the world and full of natural resources don’t need one bit of the arrogant USA…
