Mission Accomplished? Putin's Approval Rating Hits 2-Year Highs

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Obama did it by offering hope, change, and class warfare... Abe did it by printing inordinate amounts of money, pumping stocks up, and speaking in increasingly militaristic tones... and now Vladimir Putin has managed to get his approval rating to near-record highs - by invading Ukraine?


Via Pravda,

The approval rating of Russian President Vladimir Putin remains at the highest level during the last two years for two consecutive weeks - 67.8 percent, a survey conducted by the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VTsIOM) said.

 

Sociologists noted that Putin's rating has been growing against the backdrop of the worsening political situation in Ukraine and the Crimea, successful completion of the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi and preparations to the opening of Paralympic Games.

 

VTsIOM stressed that over the past two years, Russian citizens have expressed approval of the work of the head of state on the level above 60 percent.

 

Previously, the maximum value of this index was reported in May 2012 (68.8 percent), immediately after Putin's inauguration as president.

Mission Accomplished?

Not your down, but ironically I'd rather live in a world where people didn't vote for or accept politicians who advertise machismo as their main selling point.  In a free society, politicians are supposed to do the bidding of the People in an accountant or janitorial kind of way.  Give me a fag janitor being paid by me, asking my permission for new laws any day over a muscle flexing man's man.  Let the muscle flexing man's man work in the private sector and build a big business that employs people.  I don't want a King or a ruler.

Don't disagree, only saying that people like their leaders to project strength. That's how you explain Reagan's popularity too. Obama comes off as a very weak dude, kind of a lecturing pedantic prick

To me, it all comes down the fact that the large majority of people want a King.  There's a reason that model has worked since humans existed.  Guys like us who want something else are fucked.

To me, the fact obama is bragging about 90 minute and 60 minute phone calls show weakness. A real leader would make that a 5 minute call that goes like this "Look Vlad, you need to get your ass out of Ukraine or you are going to suffer severe consequences" End of discussion.

 

Obama probably drones on pleading and telling putin about 21st century behavior...blah blah blah. As if Putin broke some club rule at the country club. I'm sure Putin sees the weakness in this bullshit talk.

I'm willing to bet that Putin's approval ratings have skyrocketed in the West too.

After preventing the US from starting another bloody, messy war in the Middle East on the basis of a staged chemical attack by extremist jihadists, in cooperation with the CIA, and now intervening in the Western-backed coup in Ukraine by violent anti-democratic extremists, he certainly has gained my respect.

And many people I know, many of whom could initially hardly be described as great fans of Russia or Putin, think exactly the same.

I don't want a **cking king.  I want Ron Paul and would take Rand Paul if he were more like his dad.

Ron Paul sounds like what most thoughtful Americans ***USED*** to sound like.

Putin - he sticks up for his people and country.  He does not start all this shit that the Zio-Mic RINO NWO CFR criminals start with attacking countries and murdering their people.

I respect Putin.  He came to the aid of Syria when the criminals and real terrorists were destroying Syria.

Well Reagan was also not a prick when he dealt with Gorbachev.  He was tough and stubborn but not nasty and petty.  There appeared to be a mutual respect there.  No one with a brain has any respect for Obama.  Putin knows he is a joke.  Ditto Kerry, Clinton, scum McCain and the rest.  The NWO-CFR Bushes are vermin too but Putin had some respect for GW.

How can a real leader and a honorable man have any respect for someone who sells out their own people?

WOW LTR, you really aren't part of the real world

Politicians ONLY exist so that NORMAL people don't get blood on their hands,

Politicans do our killing and everybody feels good, this is the way its always been.

It's why we have politicians,

The DEFNITION of "POLITICS" is "WAR BY OTHER MEANS"

Politicians allow us to SANITIZE ourselves from bloodshed.

The Crimea is almost autonomous and therefore has it's own government and can decide a lot freely.

The treaty between Ukraine and Russia allows Russia to place up to 25.000 soldiers in the Crimea. Whoever is talking about invasion is repeating the absurd Zionist warmonger lies.

Since 1991 NATO has broken all promises. Putin and the Russian governments were so "aggressive", that Russia has been encircled and now already it's vital life interests at the Crimea and Black Sea are directly threatened.

I would like to know, what US media and bloggers would write, if Russia would have expanded it's troops around the US borders and if it was about to place rockets at it's borders, that would render US ICBMs useless. This arrogance and hypocrisy of the NATO (North Atlantic Terror Organization) is incredible!

 

The rocket defense system NATO is placing at Russian borders is an offensive system. It's aim is to deny Russia the possibility to use ICBMs, while it can be threatened at will. Cold war was so secure, only because each side knew, that attacking the other side was suicidal. The RDS at Russias borders is an EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE act and when someone looks, how AIPAC and the Zionists have used the USA to lead wars for Israel, with only negative effects for the US, therefore without any consideration how devastating this alien grip was for the reputation of the USA, then one can only pray, that USrael will NEVER be able to have an effective system, placing it at the Russian borders and giving it first strike capabilities.

One should also not forget, that Russia is the last European power, that restricts somehow the NWO. With Russia being eliminated and becoming a ZOG again, the world would sink even faster and deeper into Zionist tyranny.

Do not fall victim to the Zionist propaganda. Russia is the encircled victim and Putin has NOT been the strong man everyone is portraying him. So far he NEVER gained initiative and he always only REACTED to THREATS. He reacted very clever but at some point, there is no more place to move any further back.

The most peaceful man cannot live in peace, if his neighbour doesn't want that.

Ukraine crisis: Does Russia have a case?

Under the 1994 Budapest Memorandum, the US, Russia, Ukraine and the UK agreed not to threaten or use force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine. They also pledged never to use economic coercion to subordinate Ukraine to their own interest.

The Nuland phonecall is the PROOVE that USrael has broken the treaty.

So Russia is not bound to it anyway. Nevertheless, the treaty between Ukraine and Russia allows Russia to place up to 25.000 soldiers at the Crimea. So do not talk nonsense. Russia is acting according to international laws, while the Peace Nobel laureate is commanding terrorist groups and has committed a coup against the souvereign Ukraine and it's legitimate government.

I'm sorry to go OT here but this is funny as shit.

In the afternoon, the silver-haired, bespectacled Nakamoto stepped outside, dressed in gray sport coat and green striped shirt, with a pen tucked in his shirt pocket. He was mobbed by reporters and told them he was looking for someone who understood Japanese to buy him a free lunch.

Newsweek estimates his wealth at $400 million.

“I’m not involved in Bitcoin. Wait a minute, I want my free lunch first. I’m going with this guy,” Nakamoto said, pointing at a reporter from AP.

“I’m not in Bitcoin, I don’t know anything about it,” the man said again while walking down the street with several cameras at his heels.

I remember the first contract I signed some 40 years ago it said "Should I release any information given to me to a foriegn power, I would spend the rest of my life in a small box", The contract was QUITE long, but that sentence always stuck in my head.

Pretty chilling shit,...

I have listened to a few of his rountables on RT and other newsconferences.  He can answer questions in a thoughtful manner and the reporters ask him almost anything.  They even asked him about the separation with his wife.  

By the way, hopefully there will not be a war because much of the MIC shit the American soldiers, Navy and pilots has is junk thanks to corrupt contractors at least one is AIPAC.

The F-35 and even the F-22 are junk.

love of some people towards russian leaders is beyond my comprehension...

You should really go there and spend some time, I was there, 3 years ago, travelling by car through ukraine, further east through russia to Ural and back...constantly harrased a stopped by cops/Putins emploees, asking for bribes, we even spent 1 night in jail when we refused...

so fuck Putin and fuck dozens of oligarchs, completly owning productive assets and whole country, tens of thousands of small entrepreneurs are in jail due to tax evasion,it clearly says everything you have to know about Putin.

I clearly doubt russian army is capable of some reasonable action, they even have problems to suppress few thousands rebels in Chechnya or Afganistan

well to give them credit, they survived 70 years of comunism, survived yeltsin plundering....so maybe thats why they are now so satisfied.....things got a bit better and stable :)

If Crimea goes to Russia, next will be Estonia (EU) and the smaller west side countries to Ukraine, Poland must be very concerned hence allowing Obama F-16s flying in...of course Germany must be get those post trauma Berlin wall flashbacks

At this point, the F-16 is the only decent fighter in the USSA's inventory. The F-15 is okay.  The F-35 is total shit and the F-22 is not much better.

The Russian Su-27 and Su-35 can beat an F-16.  My guess they will also take apart the EuroFighter.  The Swedes Gripen is probably the closest to some of the Russian planes.

The Germans better wake the F up because they cannot expect that the USSA will be capable of protecting them anymore as Amerika is becoming a disaster thanks to their mulatto.

Freddie,

It's more about missile systems and avionics than the launch platform. US is in a class all by itself in those departments. Modern US missile systems can take out most enemy planes before the enemy planes even detect the presence of the US planes.

The Russians anti-aircraft, anti-ship and ICBMs are better than the USA.  Pierre Sprey, who helped design the F-16 and A-10 plus thinks F-22 and F-35 are junk, said fire and forget air to air missiles are a fantasy. They can easily be defeat and he was not even getting into the moves the Su-27 and Su-35 can do.

You have been watching too much Top Gun. Keep talking MIC's book.

You may want to watch this to get over your air to air missile fantasy.  This video is from someone who knows.  The standoff and launch missles to take down other planes is BS.  Go to 1:40 in the video.

Yup.

Just think of the alpha-male hunter-gatherer convincing the lower males (dupes) to go running over the hill to attack the neighboring tribe so they can grab some females for reproducing and foraging.

Of course the alpha will do most of the reproducing and eating and the dupes get a just a little bit more ass.

Not true ! We are fucked because we vote for m0r0ns instead of intelligent people with good values and principles.

Of course, that only happens because we got to a point where, as a society, we hold no real values.

Everything goes !

However, the "everything goes" types of society SUCK and, as a general rule, don't last very long either...

"It's why we're all fucked."

No, it is why our ancestors survived through the millenia to produce us, and the reason we will fail at that vital mission.

We are pale shadows of our ancestors.

If we're fucked it is because we are pussies blaming all our troubles on the federal reserve so we can avoid the real problem which is our tribal enemies who control the NWO and import massive numbers of low IQ dark aliens into our lands who hate us, use their voting power to loot us, and will ultimately displace and exterminate us.

All men are not created equal and those that manage to propagate their genes into the next generation are those who rally to group defense.

 notwithstanding MSM histrionics,
apparently,

there has been NO "invasion" by Russian troops.
Russian troops (by treaty 25k allowed) are stationed at their Crimean base.
Putin has been authorized to send troops, but has not,
and he says he will not, unless ethnic Russians are attacked by Ukranian neo-fascists.

also related on this topic:

one of the hoariest canards of the Ukraine crisis: that Russian would recapitulate its actions of 2008, when it invaded Georgia.  This assertion has been made by Reuters, AP, and I think quite a few others.
The facts—internationally recognized facts, I should say—was that Georgia used the occasion of the Beijing Olympics to launch a carefully planned invasion to recapture the breakaway province of South Ossetia—which was at the time autonomous under a truce agreement negotiated by Russia, Georgia, and the Ossetians in Sochi in 1993.  The Georgians massed 12,000+ troops against 1000 Russian peacekeepers and a few hundred Ossetian militia.  Georgia had apparently not anticipated a Russian intervention, and its forces were completely routed when the Russians indeed counterattacked.
Hopefully, the Georgia parallel will stand up in one regard: that the Russians promptly withdrew from Georgian territory after their objectives were met.  And they did not annex South Ossetia; they allowed it to declare independence instead.

68% of Russians are degenerates that live in dark ages. They are willing to eat sh*t and live in sh*t (literally) as long as their Mother-Russia is again feared by the rest of the world.

They call that "greateness."  But in reality it's fear because there's nothing great about modern russia other than the amount of consumed alcohol and the number of nuclear warheads. 

There's no point in trying to reform it.  We've tried from 1991 until recently.  But they voluntarily went back to the rule of KGB.  Their population is shrinking faster tahn in Japan.  Within next 2 generations the alcoho, tobacco, drugs, dirty air/water, and now maybe war will do the work for us.

The Russians make the most advanced fighter jets and missiles in the world.  This causes the corrupt zio-Pentagon to lose sleep at night.

The Russians are some of the best scientists and computer programmers in the world.  Although, there are many Americans who are just as good.  I said Americans not H-1B Indians.

The Russian middle class is growing, their life expectency since 2010 is increasing.  Meanwhile, the European and American middle class is being destroyed and life expectency (before ObamaCare) is decreasing.

President Remus and his Zionist handlers ran head first into the fan last September when those brave young lads with the posted signs in front of there face were sending "The Commander" a clear message that:

Not only are we not going to fight and die for Al Qaeda anymore as we have been for the last 12 years...

But also...

We're not going to take on a military that has two rather large and well equipped "proxies" waiting in the wings that is refreshed and ready to go the way we were 20 years ago before Bosnia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya... 

Now the President with the full endorsement of those smelly piles of dung in that "white inverted toilet" on the other side of Pennsylvania Avenue are beating drums to take on those "two proxies" up front and personal.

I think that about covers it.

Yes morale must be certainly very high going into this one!

Just because Obama doens't project strength don't even think he has more compassion for his electorate because of it. It will take years to undo the damage he and his cronies have done if it is even possible at all. When he was elected I said the net effect of his presidency will be that he spent trillions leaving office with the exact same problems he came in with. The will face the same economic farce that is our economy and the money to fix it has been spent. Give me a man (or woman) that projects strength and is willing to go eyeball to eyeball with Putin. Ultimately our security is dependent on strength. Everything else is bullshit.

Putin invaded part of Ukraine which used to be part of Russia until Krushov gave it to the Ukrainians when they were part of the USSR controlled by Moscow.

- So he has got this back

If it stops here its just a domestic - appreciate there is this international law thing we get upset about in thw West, unless its Iraq or Afganishan or what ever.

Real world is:

- We can't do anything about it

- We don't like Putin but he probably is a good leader for the Russians. Gerogia was bad but Putin does not rank on the

dictator list. So far, Ukraine is no Georgia.

- Ukraine is a mess either way

- Ukraine will still probably end up in the EU

- Long term is actually the goal should be to talk Russia around in to becoming the eastern part of the West, because of the emergence of China. Something in both our interests

- Putin won't last for ever, Russians clearly want democracy

- A strong Russia, if democratic is in our interests, a weak Russia is not.

- Putin gave Obama a bath in foreign policy over Syria

- US involvement in Europe re: Russia just makes things worse - please stay out and let the Europeans handle it.
