He is exactly correct, and that is a prime driver of US policy, to Isolate Russia and overthrow Putin, this is no secret.

Yes, nukes. Not like they can ever be used, so what good are they? I think Putin is onto something, that Russia is a separate culture, that should not make pretenses at being an extension of Europe. Of course, such a “Bastion Russia” would be pretty inconsequential, and Putin can’t deal with that. But Putin and his predecessors have failed to make any kind of great leap forward, let along a modest stride (the way China has, of course.)

How about an article on the recent speech by the Hungarian PM condemning Brussels and the Nazi attitude of the EU?

All of them are US allies or US protectorates. We all know what is happening in those countries but somehow Russia is the biggest treat to US now even that 4 year old knows that direct confrontation between the two will newer happen. Can anyone point to a single Russian terrorist in the US except the Boston bombers that had Chechen origin and FBI was warned one month ahead by the Russian FSB but did nothing to stop them. Erdogan put all the secular Army generals in jail, imprisoned thousands of journalists, openly supports ISIS through trade and weapons supply and Russia and Mr Putin are bad. Most of the money that the terrorist groups get is from Saudi and Qatar governments ,the radical Islam what you call Wahhabi originates from Saudi Arabia. The most radical Islamic schools are in Cairo spreading evil with the help of the Saudis. Most of the 911 hijackers Saudis some with Bosnian passports and initial flight training in Bosnia. Any terrorist attack in Europe has connection with Kosovo or Bosnia. Us needs to reset the relations with Russia as soon as possible and set on fire all of the Russophobic books written by Mr Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Is Putin the only one who thinks so? What would be an opinion on this issue of a reasonable third party observer?
I keep being surprised how public opinion manipulators expect that people in the so-called “West” would not really invest any thinking in answering the very questions they pose. The system’s reliance on people being brought up with an attitude “do not think, trust what you’re told” however is in a deep crisis right now. And the Trump’s triumph and Bernie Sanders’ impressive performance are all indicators of just that. People are sick and tired of being intellectually castrated. They are rebelling.

When Russia was weak and going downward. When people where poor and dying of alcohol, drugs, criminality etc. the west and USA was so happy. Russia wasn’t a threat. They praised Russia and president for how democracy is winning all across Russia. Yeah. They were like hyenas, waiting for the best moment to finish dying Russia. Then Putin came in and their dream and opportunity flew away. And they are so mad. Now they make up scary stories about Putin and blaming him for everything. Well. Thats what losers do.

Indeed, you can stroll right through Moscow without a fear in the world. Unless you’re Tajik, Tatar, Jew, Vietnamese, Dagestani, Georgian, Armenian, Ukrainian, Black, Muslim or gay. If you’re not any of these things, then Putin made a pretty safe environment for you to keep being sad and drink yourself to death.
