Vladimir Putin goes on offensive against US
Vladimir Putin signalled his support for a controversial new law that would ban American citizens from adopting Russian orphans as he issued a fierce verbal     attack on the United States.

During a four and a half hour question and answer session, the president said Russian MPs had acted "emotionally, but reasonably" in approving the legislation, a retaliation for a new US law that bans alleged Russian human rights abusers from visiting the country.
Mr Putin said that despite Americans being "up to their ears in a certain substance" made up of their own problems, they still insisted on highlighting Russia's ills.


"Why does one country consider itself entitled to spread its jurisdiction to the entire world?" he said in his characteristic rapid-fire delivery.

"Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo – people are kept in prison for years without being charged, they walk around in shackles like in the Middle Ages. "They have legalised torture inside their own country.

"Can you imagine what it would be like if we had at least something similar? We'd have been eaten alive! They would spread such a Bacchanalia [of criticism]! But in the US there's only silence."

Thiis is one challenge that Russians must take on by themselves if they want to rebuild their own confidence. Chinese help will only make it worse for Russian confidence and eventually may strain Russian-Chinese relations. Hopefully the Russians understands. Meanwhile China, Germany, france and England should further their relations and not let Asians or Europeans get in the way of the US and Russia debate - its not a war, its a civilised debate between US and Russia, that should be the way the situation is projected. For China, England, Germany and France, both are friends albeit a different degree for each one. Its time that firends regardless of degree of trust start showing their maturity of managing their relationship to themselves and to the world. If the US-Russian debate heats up China and the 3 major Europeans should work amongst themselves to try watering it down a little to give the world confidence of stability. Over time these 6 will eventually help build a new kind of relationship.

What type of a logic is that? Vladimir Putin is a leader of an exceptional high caliber than you opine. You should learn to give credit where credit is due. Also bear in mind, China and Russia are close and strong strategic partners

Magnitsky uncovered fraud and corruption by some members of the Russian Government and died for it. Sad this still happens in the world. However, the ones that suffer the most now are the Russian orphans.
