Putin: World Is Getting "More Chaotic", But Hopes "Common Sense Will Prevail"

As last week's chemical attack in Syria has (rightly or wrongly) led relations between Russia and the West to further deteriorate, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he hopes "common sense" will prevail as the modern world grows "more chaotic," per RT.


He added that the present international situation - which has been marred not only by tensions surrounding the Syria gas attack but also the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal - is "very troubling."

"The state of world affairs invokes nothing but concerns, the situation in the world is becoming more chaotic," Putin said on Wednesday during a ceremony to welcome new ambassadors to Russia.

"Nevertheless, we still hope that common sense will eventually prevail and international relations will enter a constructive course, the entire world system will become more stable and predictable."

He added that Moscow will continue to strengthen "global and regional" security, and will honor its "international responsibilities and develop cooperation with our partners on a constructive and respectful basis."

"We will pursue a positive, future-oriented agenda for the world; and work to ensure stable development, prosperity and the flourishing of mankind," Putin said.

The Russian leader also revealed that he would meet with the South Korean president when he visits Russia in June, and that Russia coordinates steps on the energy market with Saudi Arabia.

Putin also said Russia doesn't support "twitter diplomacy", which followed a threat tweeted by President Trump in response to Russia's claim that it would shoot down any US missiles fired at Syrian government installations.

Trump warned Russia to "get ready" because the missiles will be coming "nice and new and 'smart!'"

But Trump quickly backpedaled and blamed the "bad blood" between the US and Russia on - guess who? - Mueller, Obama and the Democrats.

Interestingly the Ruble has strengthened since Putin spoke, erasing today's losses...

The premier statesman of our time is not ruffled.  He and my president are working behind the scenes to take down the true evil that has been pulling the strings of the world since WWII.

May he and Donald Trump have success in their efforts to quash the Cabal once and for all.

mother russia is offering free land in the far east - under condition you develop it within five years - much like the wild wild west during their infancy. pristine wilderness and a new frontier. good vodka and fresh everything is reason enough from this chaos coming down the pipe.

Putin does not seem prone to bluff (unfortunatly?). Do you remember "Orange boy" threats about attacking NK? What happened then? Nothing.  If Russians happen to be killed iin Syria by the US expect a response which extent we have no idea. I hope sombody, anybody put some reason on Orange boy and its lunatics Haley, Bolton, Pompeo, Mattis. US dont allow the tail (Israel) to wag the dog!

only because zero hedge is a shell of its former self, and all the anglo-centric finance and economics people have been replaced by Hamas-loving, coin-tard, 4chan, millennial pieces of shit.

Everyone with a brain recognizes the good parts of what Russia does, defending Christian heritage, culture, and traditional values....

But that doesnt mean the world would be better off with Russia and China ascendant.


The US needs to continue to be fixed from the inside-out, and make no mistake, North America, and the West must forever remain in control of world affairs.


No matter what a bunch of internet retards think.

"But that doesn't mean the world would be better off with Russia and China ascendant."

The Sino-Russo alliance is built around the maxim: "Build, don't bomb" .. so in principle, the world is better off with ascendant Russia and China... the Anglo American US Hyper-power Predator Class has destroyed itself and is dragging down the rest of the world with it.

ZH is on the right track... though the crude anti- Semitic trolls are probably designed to chase away serious readers

Everyone misses that part.

And it's not about chasing anyone away. It's about correctly identifying the problem, which is racial supremacist globalist Jewish moneychangers. Most Jews are not actively a part of the problem, just like most Muslims don't go around killing people. However, "A radical Muslim wants to behead you. A moderate Muslim - wants a radical Muslim to behead you." There's a similar tribal loyalty/in-group mindset among the Jews as a whole. Those who know what their conniving, parasitic, globetrotting Tribesmen are doing have no problem with it because after all, it's just goyim being plundered and hey, don't the holy books they've written to themselves promise them that ruling the whole world is their birthright?! Game on!

We all certainly hope that you are correct. I have said as much myself. But it appears like T is taking the path of least resistance. Liberty usually is not the path of least resistance. 

It sure seems like he is willing to commit political suicide from where I sit. But I will hold out hope of a deeper strategy here.
