    What did Soviet Union use Commie sympathizers in the West for? All kinds of nefarious activities: espionage, industrial and other sabotage, even outright terrorism at times...

    It's not a joke. Some of these Westerners they recruit, are given military training and combat experience.

    Norwegian and other Scandinavian neo-Nazis have fought alongside Russian mercenaries in Syria

    and Italian fascists - in Ukraine

    I wrote about it here: Norwegians fought for RUSSIA in Syria?

    I believe the big picture is, these folks are then secreted back to their homelands in Europe, where they become, essentially, pro-Russian sleeper cells, they have weapons and everything ready for them, hidden away, and they will come out and strike if ever there is a big conflict between Europe and Russia. As I said in that thread, remember that Breivik fellow who killed dozens of people in Norway? Now, think 1000 such guys, what they can do, what chaos they can create in their respective countries...

    Not sure if there is recruitment of Americans to that extent, but... Something to keep an eye out for, certainly...

    The Saudi King also came to Moscow in October of last year, first ever visit by him to Russia, clearly a gesture to Putin of recognition of his new power in the region...

    Bashar al-Assad is Putin's puppet now. Russia rules Syria.

    Totally. He'd very likely be dead like Qaddafi now, without the Russians...

    Who's that guy in green standing with the Russkis around 1:00?

    Every single time, Putin swings his left arm and holds the right almost stationary.

    Ramzan Kadyrov, the ruler of Chechnya. He often acts as Putin's chief emissary to the Middle East and the Islamic World...

    Yes, I've seen that thing with his arm before... Not sure if he has some old injury or something...

    Medvedev tries to copy Putin in everything, even his walking style lol

    Total kiss-ass sycophant... That's why Putin keeps him around, of course...

    Just like Pence tries to copy Trump, right down to grabbing his water bottle and putting it on the floor just a few seconds after Trump did. Remember that? It was downright freaky!

    Well, we have it on VERY good authority-----on the authority of Vladimir Putin himself!!-----that Russia can provide the world with the most beautiful prostitutes.

    So there is that.
