Putin did many good things for Russia.


Did you expect anyone else to win? Between voter fraud and party bully tactics, I expected no less. This "should" be his fourth and last term but we'll see. He has the reins of power for six more years. At least that's their law but he hasn't been one to follow all the laws. I still think he is the rich oligarchs puppet and will continue building his military strength until he can rebuild the old Soviet Union. Lining theirs and his pockets at the expense of the Russian people for years to come.

Gee, goose-stepping 18th-century soldiers.  Looks like a comic opera.  :D

Yes, but it might be a little bit clunky for indoors.

Maybe after the presidential swearing-in ceremony, they might go outdoors for some medieval jousting.  :)
