Vladimir Putin. Putin: I Am the World's Only 'Pure Democrat'. The Putin Paradox
Vladimir Putin Putin: I Am the World's Only 'Pure Democrat' The Putin Paradox Madeleine Albright wrote: "After our first meetings, in 1999 and 2000, I described him in my journal as "shrewd, confident, hard-working, patriotic, and ingratiating". In the years since, he has become more confident and - to Westerners - decidedly less ingratiating." "This is Russia's historic choice - to follow the road of integration with our next-door neighbours, draw closer economically and unify social norms with the people with whom the Russians existed in a single state for centuries."
