Best wishes to you, Dear Reader. Cheers!
People say that Putin doesn’t care what the West thinks; that’s nonsense. He does care, and he doesn’t understand the hatred towards him from the West, which he feels has no basis. In Sochi, he organized what he saw as an incredible Olympics and people still criticized him for it. It’s partly a generational and civilizational thing. He wishes he could go back to the era when he could just drink wine and have fun with Berlusconi. He just doesn’t understand why people critizise him so much. — Anton Krasovsky, Russian Journalist (March 2014)
