On the subject of Putin I thought I would share conclusions a Russian friend came to over 2 years ago who was pro-Putin up to the day I received this message. I won't expose their username.
"The TV usually tells about the Ukraine, Syria, Russophobia, that the salaries are growing or how everything is good and stable in our country and that our President is the best, always right and makes everything better." Reality: "The prices are getting higher, the taxes are growing and the Government makes the new ones to milk the nation even more, then Putin approved the rising of retirement age and many other things that surely don't do anything good to the people. The flooding in Irkutsk region left around a hundred of settlements of people with no homes but Putin came and promised to help. Yeah, 10k roubles (roughly 150 dollars) for everyone, it's a laughable amount for the compensation and a lot of people still didn't get anything at all." "Then there's a video of United Russia putting stickers with their logo onto the bags with humanitarian aid that wasn't gathered by them so people will think that it's from them and the Government cares for them, not those random people who wanted to help. A number of regions in Siberia are covered in smoke because of the burning forests but the Government decided not to fight it and wait until the wind will change or the rains will fall because, as they said, it's too expensive to cover a territory that is larger than Armenia so people are suffocating in there, Putin does nothing" "Putin's friends and Government is another story: various oligarchs and politicians who are billionaires and have homes, villas and yachts, even foreign citizenship, their children live and study abroad while more and more regular people are crossing the poverty line and left to die because the Government doesn't have money for them but still demands taxes. The same thing is with the Church, the high ranked priests are like the oligarchs as well, especially Patriarch Kirill. On the annual Direct Line with Putin someone asked him if it's possible to lower the 7-digit salary of the officials, he only laughed and said that if it happens - there will be no such talented people to rule everything, he just meant his rich fat friends." " He only makes promises to people who beg him for help and it rarely happens, then he simply blames the Government workers who don't do their job (there are a lot of those and many of them are actually in his United Russia party). This "party of crooks and thieves" takes up the majority of all the government structures because they're not even afraid to cheat the elections. This whole July there were meetings in Moscow, they supported the independent candidates whose signs were rejected so they can't be elected into Duma. By this, Putin and his friends want to retain the seats for themselves so the opposition will not be there, they simply said that a large number of signs were invalid and those people don't exist. July 27-th's meeting was a disaster: the Police, OMON (like SWAT) and Rosgvardia (another force to keep Putin safe from the people's rage and whom he funds by lowering the pensions) were randomly hitting and taking absolutely harmless people for no reason, there are various videos about that too but Sobyanin (mayor of Moscow, also Putin's friend) said on the TV that he is proud of them for doing their job good and punishing the provocateurs." "Some candidates were arrested (for no clear reason as well) right before the meeting and Navalniy (the anti-corruptionist and a famous oppositionist, Putin's enemy) was poisoned where he was held but the details aren't being revealed, that only confirms that Putin wants to eliminate everyone who crosses his way, several people already died a strange death for being against Putin like Politkovskaya, Litvinenko, Nemtsov, Dorenko and Skripal. Putin and his FSB are most likely behind every assassination that happened here. He reigns for way too long, nearly 20 years. "
