Comments on: Vladimir Putin wants his seat back at the world’s table. How far will he go to get it? http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/09/16/what-made-vladimir-putins-call-to-elton-john-so-believeable/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Nagle http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/09/16/what-made-vladimir-putins-call-to-elton-john-so-believeable/#comment-1105729 Sun, 20 Sep 2015 19:38:18 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=43493#comment-1105729 The price of oil and natural gas is way down. For a while, Russia’s power came from their oil and gas exports. Now there’s an oil and gas glut. This has significantly reduced Russia’s economic clout.

Oil and gas are real. The Ukraine invasion is real. Elton John getting trolled is hype.

Petty border skirmishes in Ukraine, instead of doing anything important in the world. Russian economic growth is negative for 3 straight years now. The world moves on.

The author should think prior to putting pen to paper. The whole article is just full of spite and malice so the reader just ignores any sensible comment. Putin has constantly out manoeuvred the US and despite the ridiculous sanctions imposed (which the EU will shortly back away from)Russia despite all of the authors venom will still be around and have a say on the world stage along with China. And the loss of US financial hegemony will only strengthen there hand.
