    “He allegedly had prostitutes pee on a hotel bed that had once been used by Barack and Michelle Obama.”
    You are still holding onto lies that have absolutely no basis in reality. You claim we should be worried about Putin using the Russian media as his own personal blog, meanwhile in the US the Democratic party uses the media as their own personal blog. Your own ignorance is proof of how the US media crusades against the liberals enemies as if it is their sole purpose.

    Pee on the bed? So THAT’s why they call him “Trump The Pump!”.

    Oh, give me a break!

    While it can’t be denied that Putin has lately become more crazy than he was and that when pushed against the wall he may become unpredictable, the above list is just propaganda.
    10.That may be Putin trying to scare the Estonionians or that may have been independent nationalist hackers from Russia (actually, since there are no proves it could have been simply a prodigy teenage hacker from within Estonia sa well). If You knew anything about the situation of Russians in the Baltic Republics (Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia) You would know that the conflict here is much deeper and complicated. While Russians do have some interest in the Baltic Republics (shortest way to the Kaliningrad Oblast). Any military action against them is very unlikely right now.
    9. Oh, please! Both NATO and WP had been doing such maneuvers throughout the Cold War, many armies (including the USArmy!) do that all the time. It is to practice, yes, but mainly to show the world: look, we are the strongest! Don’t mess with us! Putin is showing off, but not more than NATO actually.
    8.Weaker UE may be good for him, but not necessarily to invade the rest of the Eastern Europe. Putin has no interest in Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland, Romania etc. Nor does he has money for that (otherwise he would have incorporated the “Rogue Republics” in Ukraine long ago. He may seek to weaken the EU as it was partly UE’s fault that Yanukovych was overthrown and while he wasn’t the best and most honest president, he still had support of about 50% of Ukrainian citizens and he offered a simple way to end the conflict (that was not accepted by the opposition already marching to victory). And the guys who came after him were no better, using the army (and paramilitary grouops) against their own citizens, making people responsible for unthinkable acts of genocide national heroes… and not solving a single problem that the state was facing during Yanukovich’s rule.
    And by the way – the “Novorossia” and Crimea were never historically part of Ukraine. The Ukrainian SSR got them from the USSR only because it’s Ukrainian leaders (Khrushev and Brezhnev) decided so. While the situation in the rogue republics wasn’t so obvious, majority of the inhabitants of Crimea wanted to be part of Russia, even 10 years ago (they still don’t want to become a part of Ukraine again, but the enthusiasm for being re-united with Russia is much less frequent now).
    7. There are enormous parts of Russian territory that the government has no idea what is happening in right now, so the total control is BS. The global propaganda machine is real though.
    6.True in general, although he is less popular than he used to be back when he still was a reasonable person during his first 2 terms as a president. The problem is that there is no sensible candidate that could become a president and keep post-putinist Russia from descending into chaos. And believe me, Russia in Chaos is the last thing the world (and the USA) needs.
    5. True in general.
    4.Really? This is the kind of news You would find in the Russian propaganda articles. It’s just another evidence that Putin has actually been just a very diligent observer of how the USA deals with thing world-wide and copying their ways.
    3.True in general. The problem is that Putin gae Kadyrov way to do whatever he wants as long as Chechenya remains free of war and terrorism. Any active interference may lead to a new war breaking out. Apart from that – Putin is a conservative and disapproves of Gay people himself, so it’s doubtful he will do anything about that. On the other hand – noone is certain what is happening in that camps as there has been contradictory reports on them. However, the sole fact that they exist is outrageous.
    2.I wouldn’t fear that unless Putin is really pushed against the wall. What is to be afraid of is the fact that after the great compromitation that the intervention in Georgia has been for the Russian Military, they have now made their army powerfull and well-trained again. So You should be more scared of their conventional forces now. Putin is not (yet) crazy enough to lounch the nukes.
    1.Yeah, the thing is that most of the reservists had their military trainings years ago, back when the military was overgrown but incapable of doing anything.
