the way Putin is going he will have a civil war . people are furious they have to stay at home with no money or financial help. . farther in-laws comment. Putin has enough money to buy every family in Russia a boat . the prick cant even help out with food .
What has happened Poppy. You were so enamored with Putin when last I view this dog fight. raging bull was it you that stated that oil prices would be @ $80 a barrel as I remember and I told you it was completely arbitrary and higher than market price.
It sounds like me to talk about oil. There was a time when I thought it was one of the best investments you can make, because of its scarcity. In the 80's, I did a report in college about the availability of oil. Because of world consumption, we had about 30 years of oil left worldwide.
But, fracking changed all of that. The US became the world's largest oil producer by fracking, just in the US. I think the same can be done with all of the countries. There is oil everywhere. We have enough for many centuries.
Market price, I can understand. I tend to believe arbitrary somewhat, but I don't understand it. It must have been by agreement with Russia and Saudi Arabia. I don't know how oil prices got up to $41 per barrel when it was negative just about a month ago.
"Negative views of Russia and Putin on the rise globally
12 July 2014 Last updated at 02:08 BST
Russia's global image is increasingly negative, according to a survey from the Pew Research Center.
This is despite Russians believing that President Vladimir Putin's actions in Ukraine would improve the country's reputation abroad.
Pew Research found that increasing numbers of people around the world held unfavourable views of Russia and its president, especially in Europe and the United States.
And as the violence in Ukraine continues, 60% of people there had negative views of Russia - a huge increase from 11% in 2011."
Hi guys, Iíve been a member for a while, but never posted. Found this forum several years ago and have spent countless days / weeks reading and now I finally have a topic to contribute to.
Yes men still go to Putins Russia and for my fiends and I itís been very fruitful. Weíve all had great experiences there and found genuine women with ease on the free sites. Two are now married, one engaged and Iíve been in a long term relationship for over three years with a wonderful Russian woman. Itís definitely worthwhile visiting if fellow members been struggling in the Ukrainian romance industry. Typically we have stayed away from Moscow and St Pete and have met women in regional cities to the South and East.
Poppy: Putin got away with Crimea thanks to Obama being a pussy. When the Ukrainians realized they were on their own they put up the best defense that they could in the Donbas. The dead Russian soldiers returning home in the darkness and denied involvement was what most surely stopped the invasion and likely days from a coup of Putin's administration like that of Khrushchev by Brezhnev. Just as has been going on since 2014, the Russian people will continue to pay the price while Putin sits on the gold toilet and flushes Russia's opportunities down. Any choice other than Putin would be moving forward instead of backwards into the darkness. Watch yourself, you are being watched too.
It will be interesting once Putin is gone . To be quite honest I don't care so much . Our life kids and now in-laws is in Australia. Would rather go to the playground with my children . Sit in the nature under palm trees having picnics . Just enjoy times of peace deal with covid make the most of things before the war with China ruins everything good . And I bet big bad Putin is on the same side . Like always!
