Was he for immigration or against immigration, prey tell.
Dirk, Russia will be much earlier "lost" than Germany, their starting point is lower....I wouldn't look to Putin and Russia as a role model
That's very interesting, BB. Other reports and, for example, occasional shots on Polish TV, say that rural, provincial Russia is dying from alcohol problems. Putin isn't solving any of Russia's problems, he is rather aggreviating them. He launches his campaigns against LGBT instead to divert attention from the real demographic problems. His enthusiasts in America, like Dirk diggler or Rich Mazur, buy this narrative knowing nothing about contemporary Russia, just becuse Putin's narrative compllies with their own. Russia's policy of tolerating violence against their women is only slightly less accepting than tolerating violence against LGTB. The most drastic cases of abuse are being reported in the Polish social media (I wonder if such reports reach Germany or other countries of the so-called 'rotten' West).
Muslim immigrants from the former Soviet republics in the south settling in Russia have a big chance to be more successful on the productive front, but also to live much more healthy life due to the ban on alcohol in Muslim religion (true, abuse against women is a big problem there as well).
Yes, vodka is an extremely important factor in Russia..
