Putin

he's winning on most fronts, isn't he? disrupting the US election (again) and generally fucking with our heads on a daily basis with coordinated disinformation, the bogus Ukraine meddling in the 2016 election story flowing from the lips of GOP trump lackeys, in control in syria (well, pluses and minuses to that...), flaunting how they essentially got away with poisoning the Skripals on UK soil, etc.

That sounds pretty significant. Surkov is regarded as the brains behind Russia's 'information warfare' stuff, isn't he? Managed opposition, contradictory stories, conspiracy theories, all of that stuff.

Yeah but his mode of operation and the rationale behind it has been internalised and implemented by now, in Russia and in the rest of the world. He's irrelevant.

Probably. Maybe he has some personal 'magic touch' that makes it so effective, though?

Or maybe not, I mean by the sound of it a big part of why it succeeds is its very crudeness and obviousness.

Was only a matter of time.
Jared patiently explains to his father in law - for the third time today - that just because Vlad gets away with it, doesn't mean he can deal with Biden in the same way.

At least, not yet.

Anyone else seeing reports that Putin has Parkinson's Disease and is planning to step down in January?

No-one interested in this? Girlfriend asked on facebook about "uncle vova" and it seems that quite a few people in Russia DO think that Putin is ill.
