    Why do you ignore British PM Churchill was his conduct during the war less evil ? It is all perception ... The whole of Europe then was exploiting people whether inside the Europe or outside in the reast of the world...

    Sure.. understand .. thats why I said Ukro-Russo are bound to kiss and make-up once regime changes on either one side(ie either US wins or Russia.) Ukraine unwittingly has become American pawn in the game between two, for utopia of economic progress under American tutelage. Ukraine must chart its own path. Seriously, makes a fitting case for joining non alignment.

    You don't like Churchill because he brought to the Indian people a lot of grief. There is a saying: Cвоя рубашка ближе к телу. (At court everyone is for himself) .

    Never seen him doing the same to Modi though, atleast not yet. Or maybe I haven't seen enough pictures.

    'Supertanker game': Putin featured in Chile wildfire fighting app


    Recently, Russian Ilyushin-76 airborne firefighters have been working to fight forest fires in Chile. The app is a result of that.

    Former Fox host, now NBC host, Megyn Kelly, interviewed Vladimir Putin. Here is an important portion, that, as per the uploader, was edited out by NBC.

    If you watched the news conference last week in St Petersburg, Russia during economic forum where Modi and Putin were being asked questions by American reporter, Megyn Kelly .,you get a glipse of Putin's personality.
    Firstly, when Modi was asked if he would agree that Russia interferes with small neighbors internal matters...
    before Modi was ready to say something...Putin jumped in saying.."you should ask that question to Maldovian president" That was a clear attempt to save Modi as this was a "trap" question. Modi got a few seconds due to this distraction and was able to get away by saying " you don't need lawyers like me to mediate in this big people's disputes" So, Putin is quick thinker and has a tendency to take risks to protect his friends and allies.

    Secondly, when repeatedly pushed and cornered by accusations by Megyn about Russia's role in Trump victory, you can see the obvious irritation ,annoyance and some anger on his face and he snapped back saying things like " have all of you lost your minds?" etc.

    Third very interesting observation was about him is when Putin said " It's very hard to trick a "hindi" ...we are simple people..(inaudible) In other words...you can not fool Indians (India) by your tricks as they understand
    all tricky manouvers ( they understand your English very well...LOL)

    Putin takes very subtle and pointed jibes which gives a glimpse of his internal mental state to an astute observer.
    At times, he is very direct and boldly states what he believes and comes across as a confident, fearless leader who is convinced that he is right and can not be suppressed. I think this boldness is what Russians like most and thats why his approval rating in Russia hovers around 80 to 90 %.

    Whatch this revealing St Petersburg press conference (June 2) with full attention ...its on Youtube.

    He starved millions of Bengalis and let them die in famine so that European soldiers can be fit for battle. He is a war criminal.
    Sorry we are not a fan.

    It's certainly not millions, but it's its own people.
