In recent days , Mr. Saakashvili (newly appointed Governor of Odessa) held a conference with Mr. John McCain in the Ukraine. Mr Saakashvili appears to have lost interest in the whole thing but Mr McCain proceeds to tell us why Mr Putin is a ‘thug and a bully’. The conference can be found here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cd9F…
This video goes back to a Russian TV show in 2011, when Putin’s foreign policy wasn’t quite as clear to the Russian public as it is today. Nevertheless, he makes his stance known on US foreign policy, and notably, his feelings toward Mr McCain.
Four years later, it appears Mr Putin has delivered on his words that Russia will not be ostracised when it comes to allies on the international arena.
