Silent strongman Sergey Shoigu is the real force behind Russia’s military aggression

‘Crimea is ours,’ President Putin boasted last May. He was speaking on a documentary viewed by millions of Russians, and it was the culminating moment in the militarisation of Russia. Moscow had attracted criticism for spending unprecedented sums on its armed forces under Putin, despite a weak economy over-dependent on oil. The successful annexation of Crimea seemed a perfect vindication.

Yet the huge expansion of Russia’s armed forces budget was instigated not by Putin but by the defence minister, the mysterious Sergey Shoigu.

  • That bugger looks mean. And his nose is permanently broken — he’s probably been in more bar brawls in his life than ten of us put together. Look out ISIS, you people can’t even hold your alcohol. Although I’d never put him him up against the meanest bastard on the globe, “baby face” Kerry! Kerry will suck your cock so fast that ____ fill in the blank.

    “Russian Military aggression” More propaganda. What was Russia to do after the US and EU toppled a democratically elected President of the Ukraine and installed a puppet President? They had no choice to annex the Crimea in order to protect their important naval base and the ethnic Russian population of the Crimea.

    Do people really fall for this “Russian aggression” b.s. ? It wasn’t Russia that illegally invaded Iraq and destabilized the middle east which brought rise to ISIS. It wasn’t Russia that provided air support to Al Qaeda in Libya resulting in the toppling of Qaddafi and the fall of Libya into ISIS’ hands. It wasn’t Russia that illegally funneled weapons to Islamist rebels inside Syria in an attempt to topple a secular leader resulting in a civil war and the exodus of Millions of Syrians who threaten Europe and now Canada as they enter our countries as “refugees”.

      Congratulation on being employed by the FSB. You should not ascribe to Russian high principles that which result from their incompetence and lack of capabilities.

    Where is Smashi to tell us how bad Putin is?
    When this guy inherits, then we’ll see.

  • FactsWillOut

    Oh look, Russians can carry guns now:

    So, no gay pride crap, no hate crime crap, no PC crap, and they can carry guns.
    Looks like Russia is now the land of the free, and Putin is now the leader of the free world.

    That’s the wrong photo.
    It’s from a War movie where Kevin Spacey had to put on 40 lbs and practice how to care even less that he did in past movies.
