Portnikov: Putin must realize he is in low water
“Putin must realize things won’t get better for him any more. He will have to quit the annexed territories everywhere, with repentance, apologies and reparations,” renowned journalist and political analyst Vitali Portnikov, writing for Sept. 4.

Putin has concentrated troops near Ukraine’s borders. There can’t be any clearer signal for G20: make deals with me, divide the world, leave Ukraine for me – or you will have a war, Portnikov says.

Pres Obama, however, has his own signal – new sanctions against Russia’s leading companies and Gazprom. The signal is to convince Putin that he will pay a high price for destabilizing the situation in Ukraine and refusal to reach a compromise on Syria, Portnikov says.  

The main thing Putin and his buddies have to realize – since the latter have so far failed to produce a plan for the soft dismantlement of Putin’s regime – that things won’t get easier for them. The sanctions will be toughened, the economy will sink further and the chance for Putin and his criminal gang to survive will shrink, the journalist says.

If yesterday Putin had to merely drop Assad and Donbas and agree to the talks on Crimea, the price of a compromise tomorrow will be high. Russia will have to withdraw from the grabbed territories, quick and clear. Without any face-saving, with repentance, apologies and reparations, Vitali Portnikov says.

Putin has shown the political illiteracy

Journalists Bloomberg again caught Putin's "not very deep understanding of the essence of American politics"

In an interview with the editor Bloomberg John Mikltveytu Russian President Vladimir Putin demonstrated his not very deep understanding of the electoral process in the United States.

The publication notes that the question of whether Russia do with the recent hacker attacks on the system of the National Committee of the Democratic Party and the subsequent publication of the stolen emails to Wikileaks, Putin gave a lengthy negative answer, adding: "I honestly do not even could you imagine if you say openly that this kind of information may be of interest to the American public, which turns out to campaign headquarters of a candidate, in this case, Mrs. Clinton worked at it, and not equally to all candidates of the Democratic party. So I just had no idea that it might be interesting to someone. So even from this perspective we can officially there could not climb. To do this, you know, to feel the nerve and features internal political life of the United States. Not sure even our experts in the Foreign Ministry feel it properly. "

"Hacker attacks on systems Democratic National Committee showed that the entire party machine initially worked exclusively on Hillary Clinton, unfortunately for Bernie Sanders. To say that it could not "present interest" for someone means to demonstrate absolute lack of understanding of the nature of American politics "- said in the article.

Bloomberg points out: this is not the first time that Putin "shows his political ignorance." In a January interview with the German newspaper Bild Putin asked journalists: "You know that in the history of America, there were two occasions when the president was elected by a large number of voters, which was less than the number of voters?" In fact, such cases were four, as Russian media quick to tell, but Putin apparently did not read the article to refute him, because at an economic forum in St. Petersburg, he again said the two cases.

"Putin's statement that he is not well informed about the machinations in Washington, perhaps the old tricks of the former KGB agent, used to prove the innocence of his audience to the hacker attack on the Democratic Party. It is known that Putin often resort to such tactics when his interlocutor perceives as an enemy. If it is later caught in deception, it is embarrassing not more than moved to Donald Trump's important is happening now, not sometime later "- sums up edition. In Ukrainian/український
