Putin Critic Alexei Navalny's Chief Of Staff On Russian Political Suppression | Ayman Mohyeldin


    1. @Crimdor I didn’t say it was over Navalny. It was a message to Putin that a new sherriff is in town. No more grovelling from Trump.

    2. @Chris_P_Bacon – or it’s a move to deploy the army, which aren’t very Eco friendly, to a region with ice caps to further the problem of climate change, so they can make a stronger argument to go green, even though their own administration is making it worse on purpose.

    1. I believe this also.Sadly nothing is getting solved or comprised.People are picking up guns and shouting foul language and conspiracy theories.stay safe.

    2. Yeah I and the other 70M Americans don’t want Biden and his Chinese style establishment to destroy free speech and democracy.

  1. Putin: Jails political critics and stages sham elections to remain in power.
    Dolt 45: Lacks the balls to do the same.

    1. @Maximilian Houk You imbeciles call it TDS… when in All Actuality, it is Reality. I wish you a gentle and complete return to reality.


    1. We decide what is right.
      Not some overseas super power with nuclear weapons threatening us into submission.
      We are safe with Putin.
      He was trained well as Homeland Security officer. (KGB)

    1. Navralny sure is 50 times more popular in US than he is in Russia.

      In Russia 50% hate him with a vengeance.
      48 % simply don’t like him.
      2 % support this scam artist.

      Take him and make him your Senator or something.
      We can do a prisoner exchange.
      Give us Assange.

  3. Maybe they’ll be room for Putin in Mar-a-Lago? Navalny sure has a lot of courage. Perhaps Russia would finally like a new leader?

    1. It wouldn’t be palatable for Putin to kiss the ring of Trump at Mar-a-Lago… It won’t be palatable for Trump to kiss Putin’s ring, neither (Trump won’t move to Russia)… This is the corner the dictators run themselves into…. To shrivel and die among their bodyguards, or from the crowds of desperate people

  4. I’m not going to pretend that I know what is going on in the Russian political atmosphere, but what I do know is that no leader (Vladimir Putin in this case) should not hold power for as long as he has. There needs to be limits.

    1. If you say so.
      Who are we, the people of Russia to argue with American masters.
      In other words, non of your business, America.

    2. @Al 72 Oh yea, let’s just pretend the non-existence of criminal Putin’s political repression of the political dissidents and opposition to remain dictator without viable challenge so he never has to debate his opposition.

    3. @Jason PK
      Putin can debate anyone. His political IQ is 200.
      But people receiving foreign support have no right to meddle in Russian politics.
      US openly pays for Navralny daughter very expensive Stanford education.

    4. @Al 72 The criminal Putin is a dictator, and as such he has protected himself from having to debate any bono fide opposition leader, Navalny included.

  5. Mr. Alexei Navalny reminds me of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the writer, who penned, The Gulag Archipelago. One of the best books I’ve ever read. He once stated that, “A state of war only serves as an excuse for domestic tyranny.” Putin is at war with nearly the entire world because of his aggression.

    1. What Russian aggression ??
      Gulags don’t exist anymore.
      America is 100 times worse.
      Killing millions of foreigners and jailing people in Guantanamo.
