Based on crude oil price 2003 , under $30 per barrel July 2008 , $147.30 per barrel Since 2015 , under $80 per barrel Russian didn't learn from the history . Rich natural resources doesn't make you become a superpower .

Why did you guys vote for him ? Do the election rigged ?
2018-08-15 07:41
do you really think most people really vote for him? :DDDDDDDDDD yes its always totally rigged.
2018-08-15 07:43
Nope , we've known that Putin and his fellows control the media .
2018-08-15 07:44
Not only media, pretty much everything is under control and people can do nothing with that.
2018-08-15 07:45
That's scary , just like several years ago in Cold War . Russia under Communist Party's control . Btw , i have many Russian friends on Steam , they told me they're going to leave Russia .
2018-08-15 07:48
That's a right decision, i wish them luck with that.

Read about hybrid regimes. Elections are really rigged, some less some more, but the biggest problem is that tv channels (russians watch news in tv mostly) are controlled by the goverment and the goverment doesnt let real opposition to participate on elections.
2018-08-15 07:47
Ty for the information . But is there any hope for this situation ?
2018-08-15 07:53
Probably withing many years when new generation comes to power.
2018-08-15 07:59
I doubt tbh. Maybe only when he leave, but there will be palace intrigues since russia is not a democracy. I only hope that good people will win, even in russian goverment there are some good economists and reformists.
2018-08-15 08:05
elections are not as rigged as much as people claim problem is not that elections are being rigged (which really changes only from 4 to 10 percents of votes) but that people in Russia are brainwashed in general I'd say that most people from 30 to 80 years old all vote for Putin

4-10? Pretty sure it was 15-25%. A lot of people voted for Grudinin, and he has had the majority of votes in the beginning, though he is not any better.
2018-08-15 08:34
even if you are right 76% - 25% = 51%

Im a Russian, I hate him, yes it is rigged for decades. I you think about it closely, there are no rulers in russia who were elected by people. Emperors and tsars simply inherited the throne, in Ussr president election simply didnt exist lol and in russia putin just reelects himself for 18 years. Great country with great democracy.

Well as others proclaimed. He is a thief, but I do understand why so many Russians are happy having him as a president. He seems like a good leader and often comes out on top when he is having meetings with other presidents. Sad he had to screw up his ratings by changing the laws of pension.
2018-08-15 07:43
> he had to screw up his ratings by changing the laws of pension. actually if you ask any russian if he loves the goverment, he probably will reply that he doesnt. all news channels praise putin, but scold the government and admit faults. so most of people love putin and hate the goverment at the same time. how he has a good rating after the pension reform? well, when the parliament started discuss that, all TV channels were saying that Putin is AGAINST THE PENSION REFORM and wants to soften it.

2018-08-15 12:04
I don't think he's a thief, at least not at such scale, russians just need someone to blame and carry on with their miserable lives Russia was raped by World wars, Communism and other shit, some shit trades and dealings but it slowly goes up
2018-08-15 07:53
> it slowly goes up and what it has to do with putin? carnegieendowment.org/images/article_ima.. But I actually impressed that you stopped defending communism, Jovik. Please set russian flag and stop blaming your fellow russians for having "miserable" lives since you wrote 6500 comments IN JUST THREE MONTHS.
2018-08-15 08:12
Has it made you sad or something? Putin slowly makes it better
2018-08-15 08:13
Actually things are getting worse every year.
2018-08-15 08:17
don't even argue with him, he only repeating that "everything is better than it was before". when you'll say something about poverty and inflation, he will start telling you about 90x. he doesnt understand economic fundamentals, but descant about "miserable lives" of russians and about strings of their souls. i commented with a picture where you he could see dependence between russian gdp and oil prices, and what he replied? that "putin makes it better". wow.
2018-08-15 08:28
Should I remind you the 90s? When you were eating dirt and beginning for a quarter of bread? Nice fish's memory rus kid

2018-08-15 16:01
i warned you that he will start talking about 90s and he really does
2018-08-15 09:43
You claim 90s werent worse than current times You're a laughing object by that fact alone It's a complete lie
2018-08-15 16:02
I don't claim that 90s werent worse, I claim that a higher level of life is not putin's achievment. Fuck off already, "90s argument" is completely retarded. Even users of Odnoklassniki have more interesting points than you.
2018-08-15 16:23
You lost it already, look your previous reply when you mentioned that When russians don't know about their country...
2018-08-15 16:24
If I call your argument bad doesnt mean that the fact you have stated is not right. Saying that "putin is good cuz now is better than it was in 90s" is like meme in #93. Not literally, but it's the same logical mistake. I already stated it in #33, but again, it's not putin's achievment that oil prices grew up. he had to diversify russian economy in these 18 years, he did not. Russia is a typical banana republic economically.
2018-08-15 16:47
He did all he could, he could have done better but he did better than all your previous presidents and anyone who could replace him now... Zhirinovsky is the only hope for you, if he doesn't get elected, gg
2018-08-15 16:51
I have no idea what you mean under "all your previous presidents", actually russian economy is based on resources since USSR, and Putin never tried to fix it. As I said, you just repeat typical arguments from ruski TV and you are not educated enough to talk about economy and politics. I don't know if you lie when you say that you learn history, but if you do, it's even more pathetic. It's to obviously that you want to have a last word, so write whatever you want, I won't respond you anymore.

2018-08-15 14:03
Putin boosted up your economics a little bit, not to the world top's level but much better than it was before him Eltsin fucked up and made a clown out of himself Putin has authority in the world but some kids alike you can't get to respect him

Boosted up the economics in which way? Look up the ruble and oil prices correlation and how the ruble lost 50% of its' value in 2014. Why don't you move to Russia to enjoy the boosted up economics yourself, btw?

Are you fucking retarded or what? The living has upgraded only because of the oil prices, which Putin has nothing to do with. And now the living is degrading significantly, as the oil prices went down. Lmao, my account is probably the same age as you, and you still call me a kid lol?
2018-08-15 14:33
Number has got nothing to do with your age, it doesn't always reflect it correctly You can be a grown man and a child inside I'm sure Putin has done many things you've no clue about or hiding quietly

"Army"... Dude you are not living in WW2 World atm. Army is f*cking useless garbage right know. They can't even use it (only in war against Ukraine LUL). Look on EU's top countries, they are smaller, they got less army, but they are 10x better in terms of life standards. Guess what? Russia is dead at this aspect. "They don't lick asses", sure they do dude. They are ready to everything to stop economical sanctions. Whatever they say, they are doing everything US / EU told them atm.
2018-08-15 09:48
No, they clearly don't, they'd like to change that but they sure as hell won't bother asking you for that. Once the dog starts barking, Russia shuts it up and goes back to their slow living standards rising

Miserable life is the result of politics if we talk in general, even culture may be changed or even destroyed by the government, how don't you understand? WW1, WW2, Communism = exactly what is being told on tv, you'll see that argument is invalid if you compare Russia with the Baltic states, Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, even Romania, China, most of these were in a worse situation.

They don't beg and ask anyone, they don't care, their living hasn't been shaped much since the rouble went down Their army is still just as strong, and their eco isn't that good with or without dollar, they're on the rise without strings to control them Gain common sense

The only one thing they can be called independent is TERRITORIALLY. And it is like that ONLY because other countries don't want a war right now. The all other important aspects are dead for them, they are dependent as much as it possible. (dependent on EU / US / GB mostly).
2018-08-15 09:45
Not quite, they're able to carry on on their own, it will be a deadline but if other countries will be isolated, they're gonna be swept off easily Russia is not one weak fag like Eu cucked pussies

Dude, your opinion is based on some underage aspects. Army, don't lick asses and other useless shit. Grow up already and watch on a country like a grown up man. They are in a deep shit at the moment. They have 0 products (I mean products to cell at least), they have no respect from other countries even tho they cell oil. They are isolated and under sanctions + their life standards are struggling like never.
2018-08-15 09:50
Never denied that, I'm only talking about their independence, everyone goes bitching against them because they don't surrender More sanctions everyday and they still stick to their politics They bring peace, not war like your benefactors

We all know that you're a russian. I also can say something on Estonian or basic Spanish, but it doesn't mean that I'm from one of those countries. Argument about "90s" is too typical for a russian. I would advise you some book about transition from communism to capitalism, but dont remember the name. But anyway you should start from basics. It's a good course, take it: ru.coursera.org/learn/ekonomika-dlya-nee.. Won't respond you anymore, and will try to not attack your personality next time unless you dont attack someone like in bcko thread.
2018-08-15 10:21
None of your business kid Currently it's neither of two, communism used to work very good until some certain moment But the current state of your country is the worst one in history Enjoy poverty, I enjoy the sun
2018-08-15 11:10

2018-08-15 12:02
Oh, no joy talking with me. That's sad :( You attack people yourself, but now you whine after i started attack you personally. And what arguments you need if you say ignorant nonsenses? You didn't list any valid argument, you said "putin makes things better" on a graph with a correlation between gdp growth and oil prices, without any explanation, what exactly you expected to recieve back? as i said, you are 18-19 yo at best, i am a way older than you, so please come up with other insult next time. cya fakeflagger.
2018-08-15 12:11
I don't attack nobody, you didn't attack me personally, at least I didn't notice it lel I'm 19, soon to be 20 And I have read lots of history, not the recent one but anyway, Putin is doing a good job, he lifted you from the knees you've been sucking in the 90s hugely, you don't have deficit now and economics rise Thank him, you're uncultured pig
2018-08-15 12:12
ahahah, again this pro-putin shit about 90s. boy, please read about transition from communism to capitalism, learn how economy works and read 100x times about resource curse. his only merit is that oil prices grew up fortunately. marketmonetarist.files.wordpress.com/201.. 70% of russian gdp in 2016 had influence of the public sector, russian economy is OPRESSED, Russia is in the ends of all lists about economy freedom, freedom of speech, safety, convenience, health and etc. Only african countries are worse, but it's not a great achievement. really gtg this time, cya again :-*

You have enough freedom dumb, more freedom is already an anarchy Nice education, you have just enough freedom for good living And economy will get better with time, you just have no friends because they're scared of you and want to oppress you to defeat that way

2018-08-15 14:38
I never denied that, I'm saying that it's better than it's been recently, they have a potential, slowly but surely but they deny it completely

well wont happen. Putin is making himself rich + some friends, and making up a scary scenario for the average pretty dumb russian that the west is a threat and thats why we need big military, a country will never grow in that way. With all the resources and the right leader russia would be a respected country with way higher standards than today
2018-08-15 14:43
I guess we both don't know it for sure and can only speculate. Let's just leave it like that, I was to state an obvious fact because 90s living was beyond normal, very low
2018-08-15 14:51
He literally repeats what russian propaganda tells. "We are not american puppets", "Our army is strongest", "We are in bad conditions but we revive", "in 90s was worse".
2018-08-15 09:54
That's all true except for the strongest army, how come russian kids are so easy to brainwash?

2018-08-15 10:00
lmao you still pretend to live in a world where Russia (or Putin) isn't corrupt despite an entire thread of Russians telling you exactly how it is.
2018-08-15 09:43
They have no clue what they're talking about Opinion of the youth shouldn't have any weight for adults, change my mind It's popular today, to go bitching about current government despite the obvious advancements So who cares but not me
2018-08-15 09:45
Yes they have no clue but obviously you are so much more qualified about Russian politics than every Russian in this thread.
2018-08-15 09:48
Not every but the most of them, yes, I'm a fan of history, I've got clues on some other countries as well But just that Ivan the Terrible got me into history it waas a matter of time when I'd reach the current history of Russia
2018-08-15 09:50

I think the problem is much deeper. 1. Putin is good as Russia’s president because it’s basically blocking USA from controlling the whole world. If you see they have army in almost every Eu country and military bases. Now this is good because there should be at least 2 big powers in the world (excluding China since they are kinda separated, positioned at the end of Asia). If Russia would get another leader, let’s say a more liberal one than Putin, USA would trump them and they will remain the only big power and they could basically invade whatever Middle East country and all other countries would protest probably trough similar things like they do when someone allahu Akbar’s, pray on Facebook. 2. Putin knows how Russia was and has improved the economy even though some may cry that this happened naturally but Putin didn’t come immediately after communism ended, until he took the lead country was still going down. Most importantly he payed most of Russia debt so there are not many strings to other countries since this debt has a controlling power and more he knows Russia has a lot of resources and a slow growth is beneficial. 3. Democracy it’s not the best option for Russia, believe or not democracy it’s based on hierarchy and it’s vulnerable to corruption as well. Now you would say Putin it’s corrupted even more but this is more complicated, if you are a smart person you understand money it’s not the drive for everybody. Many say he wants power but this power comes with a deeper desire, like why do you want this power? Now he is a ex-KGB and I looked at his teacher and he said in an interview that their main goal is to make Russia strong. Personally I believe Russia it’s in good hands, they maintain somehow balance in the world and for me Putin it’s a smart individual who understands what Russia needs more than your average dude.

It’s like saying mark zuckerberg doesn’t give up on Facebook because he will not make that much money after that.
2018-08-15 15:51
3. His drive is to leave a legacy and to be remembered in the history. The main problem is shit level of life outside of big cities. Russia is too centralized around Moscow and Saint-Petersburg and it is getting worse.
2018-08-15 14:46
My perspective is as an outsider but I lived in a Eastern European country and I’m somehow familiar. Anyway I guess it’s right to say his legacy but that would imply that he wants to help Russia .
2018-08-15 15:53
Maybe he cares about Russia. Not about Russians tho. That can sound weird but it is a thing.
