On reaching the hearts and other places - by Michael Novakhov

V. Putin: "America is not a banana republic! America is the great power! If I am wrong, let them ["the older comrades" - M.N.] correct me." 

I am not your "older comrade", and I have no desire to correct or not to correct you. Because you are a certified liar, many times over, from A to Z, and from the top to the bottom. You just have started a cyberwar and were trying to subvert and "putinize" America for years by flooding her with your "witting" and "unwitting" agents of various types and persuasions.
What you are doing is called to make a nice face while playing a bad game ("Делать хорошую мину при плохой игре").

Putin offered praise for Republican candidate Donald Trump’s strategy. “Trump has chosen his own way of reaching the hearts of the voters,” Putin said. “He is acting extravagantly, but not so pointlessly.” “He represents the interests of the part of the society tired of the elites that have held power for decades,” he added. “He is representing the common people, and he is acting like a common guy himself.” 

I am not sure about the exact anatomical locations that Mr. Trump "chose to reach in his own way", but speaking about "the elites that have held power for decades", I think, Mr. Putin is in a need of a good mirror: «Чем кумушек считать трудиться, Не лучше ль на себя, кума, оборотиться?»

If Mr. Trump, as dubiously claimed, "is acting like a common guy himself", sharing Putin's and many other politicians' style, as if it were taken from the same cookbook of political populism, it does not mean at all that he represents or plans to represent "the common people", who do not fly their own airplanes very often, do not use their fame and notoriety to engage in pompous grand openings of the grand new hotels during the tense campaigns, do not shamelessly promote their shady business interests with mob connections, and do not try to exchange their TV star status for sexual favors. Apparently, "the point" is, that Putin and Trump share not only these but many other instances and examples of "acting extravagantly".

My advice, whatever it is worth:
  • Ease the tensions, stop the military shows of force, they just perpetuate the never ending cycles of escalation.
  • Cooperate fully in Syria.
  • Stop all the interference in the US politics, including the comments on the Presidential candidates; in this situation they are inappropriate.
  • Stop the cyberwar and the information war.
  • Allow the other voices from the Russian leadership and the opposition to be heard, share the center stage with those who have different opinions than you, and who are sincerely interested in restoring the US - Russian relations.
  • Stop your artful, perverse lying, only fools believe you. Сказать прямо и по русски, для более глубокого понимания: Хорош врать!

Так "Мишка отвечал. Но Мишенькин совет лишь попусту пропал."
