    Putin says career politician Biden is not as colorful & impulsive as Trump, and his ‘killer’ comment is ‘Hollywood macho behavior’

    In his first interview with an American media outlet since 2018, Russian President Vladimir Putin has brushed off his US counterpart Joe Biden’s “killer” accusation and called it posturing by an establishment career politician.

    Speaking with NBC News’ Keir Simmons in Moscow, ahead of next Wednesday's summit with Biden, Putin called the “killer” comment an expression of a type of “Hollywood macho” behavior.

    "Over my tenure, I've gotten used to attacks from all kinds of angles and from all kinds of areas under all kinds of pretext, and reasons, and of different caliber and fierceness and none of it surprises me," Putin said in a segment NBC aired on Friday evening.

    So, as far as harsh rhetoric [goes], I think that this is an expression of overall US culture… There are some underlying deep things in Hollywood. Macho. Which can be treated as cinematic art, but that is part of US political culture where it’s considered normal. By the way, not here, it is not considered normal here.

    Yes, I thought the 'killer' comment was highly undiplomatic on Bidens part. Let's hope things improve at the summit. No need for Biden to have to appear as the tough guy, he's clearly not. I remember when he threatened to take Trump 'out behind the wood shed'

    No need for this Joe. Be calm, thoughtful and respectful towards all, even those you perceive as you 'enemies'. Be more like your former boss. I do wander if Barack would approve of such outbursts.

    Why would you say he's not?

    And when he had the Ukraine prosecutor fired, he hadn't shown to be a tough guy?

    Putin has an agenda, we just don't know what it is. What a dark guy..... After the Biden-Putin meeting:


    Asked whether the meeting had helped build trust between the leaders, Putin turned philosophical.
    "There's no happiness in life," Putin said. "There's only a mirage on the horizon, so we'll cherish that."
    Press On Regardless

    And unlike the American media - especially CNN, the friends of Democrats - the dangerous Mr. Putin did not descend to make use of sleepy Mr. Joe - and return him his "killer"...

    Here is what he reports at home:

    21:26, June 16, 2021
    Sanctions, opposition and hidden message. How was the meeting between Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden in Geneva



    Putin called the meeting with Biden "substantive and concrete"
    According to the Lenta.ru correspondent, the summit ended an hour ahead of schedule. The first press conference was held by Vladimir Putin. He called the meeting substantive and concrete and shared that in a conversation with a colleague he did not feel any hostility, "there was a disposition to come to an agreement." However, according to the Russian president, while Biden did not invite him to visit and did not receive such offers himself, since "conditions must be ripe for such invitations."

    Biden also positively assessed the results of the summit and believes that "the tone of the whole meeting was good, positive." According to him, the United States and Russia now have a clear basis for working and building relations, and the leaders of both countries understand all the differences in views of each other. According to him, the next six months will show whether it has been possible to restart relations with Russia, but there are all prospects for this.

    Reporters covering the event later noticed a hidden message in the photograph from the meeting room. Behind the presidents there was a bookcase, and behind the American leader they looked at the inscription "I lie" made up of books. The organization of press conferences also raised questions from media workers: the event of the Russian leader was attended by journalists from the United States, while representatives of Russian publications were not allowed to attend the press approach of the American president.

    Presidents agree to return ambassadors and make up after scandal with Biden's interview
    The presidents of the United States and Russia agreed to resume the work of diplomatic missions and return all embassy staff. Putin did not name the exact date, but noted that this is a "technical" issue and an agreement in principle has been reached. However, when asked whether there was more confidence in relations between Moscow and Washington, he replied with a quote from Leo Tolstoy: "There is no happiness in life, only its lightning." "There is no talk of any family trust, but there is lightning," Putin explained and stressed that he did not and did not have any illusions. In turn, Biden said that the US agenda is not directed against Russia, but for the benefit of US citizens, and in relations with any politician, he will primarily defend the interests of Washington.

    Putin also told how he made up with Biden after the latter's scandalous interview, in which he actually called the Russian president a murderer. “We explained, I was satisfied with these explanations. He invited us to meet - we met, ”Putin stressed and added that the American leader is a very experienced person.

    The parties declared their readiness to work together on arms control
    Following the summit, Putin and Biden adopted a joint statement on strategic stability and agreed to conduct a comprehensive, bilateral dialogue on arms control. According to the Kremlin's official statement , the presidents reaffirmed their adherence to the principle that there can be no winners in a nuclear war. Putin told reporters that on the whole the American side understands the Russian side when talking about the "red lines". “But we haven’t gone so far to highlight accents and share something in detail,” he stressed.

    Biden also mentioned nuclear safety issues at his press conference. “I don’t think Putin wants a new cold war,” he said. According to the American leader, the presidents discussed containment of Iran in order to prevent the emergence of nuclear weapons in this country. The parties also agreed to jointly maintain security in Syria and Afghanistan.

    Presidents discussed the situation in Belarus, but hardly talked about Ukraine
    According to Putin, the topic of Ukraine's possible accession to NATO "was touched upon with a smear, there is nothing to discuss here." The only obligation of Moscow in this matter is the implementation of the Minsk agreements on Donbass, but on condition that Kiev is ready for this. Biden, referring to this issue at his press conference, said that he had expressed to Putin "the unwavering commitment of the United States to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine." “We have agreed that we will seek diplomacy and support the Minsk agreements,” he said.

    The US President also said that the summit also touched upon the issue of Belarus, which the US considers a threat to the collective security of the West. According to Biden, Putin did not argue with him, but stressed that what is happening in Belarus can be assessed from different points of view.

    At a meeting with Biden and at a press conference, Putin was asked about the opposition and human rights violations in Russia
    In addition to the main agenda, at the press conference, Putin was also asked about the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK), which has the status of a foreign agent in Russia and is recognized as an extremist organization. “The organization that you mentioned publicly called for riots, gave instructions on how to prepare Molotov cocktails, flaunting the police identification data,” he stressed. Separately, Putin mentioned the detention of Alexei Navalny and said that the arrest was a deliberate decision of the founder of the FBK.

    The President of Russia said that the issue of foreign agents and human rights violations was raised at a meeting with Biden, and he had to recall the cases of violations that the US authorities regularly commit, in particular, people shot in the streets, secret CIA prisons and bombing in Afghanistan.

    Biden also raised this topic in his press conference. According to him, he made it clear to his colleague that Navalny's death would have serious consequences for Russia. “I told Putin that I could not keep the trust of my people if I didn’t stand up for human rights,” the American leader said. In addition, Putin put on a par with the prosecution of Russian oppositionists and the trials of the participants in the storming of the US Capitol, and this seemed to the American president inappropriate. “This is a ridiculous comparison. It's one thing when real criminals break into the Capitol and then are prosecuted. It’s another matter when people are unhappy with being gagged, ”Biden said.

    Russia and the United States will continue to work to strengthen cybersecurity
    Separately, the leaders of the two countries discussed the problem with the increasing frequency of hacker attacks on US computer networks, for which Washington blames the Russian authorities. Putin said that the parties will begin consultations on this matter, and on this issue "there is something to work on." He separately emphasized that, according to American sources, the largest number of cyber attacks in the world are carried out from the US cyberspace, followed by Canada. The Russian President also spoke about sanctions against Moscow. “There are opponents of the development of relations with Russia, there are supporters, which forces will prevail - it's hard for me to say,” he said.

    Biden paid a lot of attention to the topic of cyberattacks in his press conference. According to him, the United States will offer the Russian side a list of 16 key infrastructure sectors that should be especially carefully guarded against possible attacks by hackers. Biden stressed that a military response to cyberattacks was not discussed at the summit, and the parties agreed to work together to establish security in this area.

    A total of 32 parties entitled to run for Russian State Duma elections — official

    Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an order scheduling Duma elections to the single voting day of September

    19, 2021

    " A total of 32 political parties are entitled to participate in the September 19 State Duma elections, 14 of them do not need to gather signatures in support of their candidates, Russian Central Electoral Commission Deputy Chairman Nikolay Bulayev said Friday.

    "We received a list of 32 political parties, entitled to participate in the elections of State Duma deputies, from the Ministry of Justice," Bulayev said during the Central Electoral Commission meeting Friday.

    According to Bulayev, the parties that can run without gathering signatures are:

    the United Russia, the Communist Party, the Liberal Democratic Party, the Just Russia - For Truth, the Party of Pensioners, the Communists of Russia, the Homeland, the New People, the Yabloko, the Green Alternative, the Party of Growth, the Greens, the Russian Party of Freedom and Justice, and the Civic Platform.

    The so-called "parliamentary benefit," or exemption of signature gathering, is provided to parties represented in the State Duma, who previously gathered at least 3% of votes, or represented in at least one regional parliament.

    All other parties, entitled to participation in the elections, will have to gather at least 200,000 signatures in support of their candidate list, or at least 3% of voters in single-mandate electoral districts.

    Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an order scheduling Duma elections to the single voting day of September 19, 2021. The order has been officially published, marking the official start of the electoral campaign."

    A total of 32 parties entitled to run for Russian State Duma elections — official - Russian Politics & Diplomacy - TASS

    Federal Assembly (Russia)

    "The Federal Assembly (Russian: Федера́льное Собра́ние, tr. Federalnoye Sobraniye, IPA: [fʲɪdʲɪˈralʲnəjə sɐˈbranʲɪjə]) is the national legislature of the Russian Federation, according to the Constitution of the Russian Federation (1993). It was preceded by the Supreme Soviet. It consists of the State Duma, which is the lower house, and the Federation Council, which is the upper house. Both houses are located in Moscow. The Chairman of the Federation Council is the third most important position after the President and the Prime Minister."

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Assembly_(Russia)

    There you 32 political parties.

    Time for a switch to a Two party system?

    They do appear favoured by the imperialist and the ex/current colonial countries.

    Vlad bans some more VPN's.

    Roskomnadzor, Russia's telecommunications watchdog, has banned the use of Opera VPN and VyprVPN after classifying them as threats according to current Russian law.
    The "threat" is of course people finding out what a fucking scumbag they have for president.

    The world seems to be split between going for an autocracy versus a democracy. Control is a main element of an autocracy and no wonder that VPNs and political opponents get killed. Putin is the mouthpiece for the oligarchy and the Russian Mafia, which is likely better classified as one group.
