  • Putin has the objective of making Russia a world power. As a former KGB officer he is well versed in both the counter-intelligence and intelligence methods of a communist state. His annexation of Crimea part of a neighbouring state is indicative both of his ambitions and lack of scruple or recognition of international law. He has a proven record of fomenting strife – Georgia being an example, and this is doubtless his purpose in visiting Cuba. As one lacking any indication of a sense of humour, he should make an excellent amigo for Diaz-Canel (has anyone a picture of him smiling?) and will doubtless take the opportunity to up-date Cuba’s intelligence methods and services with the objective of increased infilltration of US government and industry. The media will refrain from noting that despite Putin’s ambitions the GDP per head in Russia is only $10,440 with average annual inflation (2006-2011) of 10.00%. Life expectancy for men in Russia is a mere 63.3 years. So Putin is a comparitively old man – which should enable him to get along with little brother President Raul Castro Ruz and BIG brother Fidel Castro Ruz, respectively aged 83 and 87. Poland happily released from the former Russian dominated communist yoke, now has a GDP of $12,290 and men have a life expectancy of 72.2 years. Poland spends 5.1% of GDP on education, Russia 4.1%. Such is the measure of Putin’s autocratic system of government.

  • Good to see President Vladimir Putin being proactive in the appropriate areas.
    Hope he enjoys the World Cup!
