    Putin dealing with domestic unrest

    It appears that Putin is not very popular with some sectors of the Russian people.

    I truly do wish that the Russian people would rise up and overthrow the Russian government--just as the Bolsheviks did with the czarist government, more that a century ago.

    This is from the year 2000. What a predictably stupid take.

    They don’t need to overthrow their government. They need to simply vote out the Putin regime.

    This is why Putin is facing unrest today. Russian people are not pleased.

    The Putin fans here have his back though.

    That happens with most leaders. Look at how many people are not pleased with Biden. Can you blame them?
