Greatest Russians of All Time
He was the only catalyst who brought Russia, then a medieval state, to the forefront of the western powers of the day, due to his unswerving program of westernization inspired by his vision and daring.
He made Russia great! The greatest ruler in the world! He brought up Russia from medieval ages and smashed the greatest European army of that time - Sweden army headed by Carl XII
The work this single man has done is incredible!
His last name explains his perfection.
Gorbachev tried to save an economically crippled USSR with his reforms. It wasn't his fault that Yeltsin stabbed him in the back and screwed over the people of the Soviet Union... come on people!
He's a jerk, destroyed great country!
He is the best
Uh guys... Just saying, Putin banned you from driving if you're trans! Which is like, really mean. And people that are against him and protest go to jail...
I support Vladimir Putin, under whose watch the oligarchs are put in check (if not outright arrested), Russian army regains ability to project power on a global scale, quality of life in Russia is on the rise, new military technologies being developed, all national debt is paid-off (Russia's debt level is now 3-5 %), under Putin, Russian economy is not collapsing DESPITE coordinated economic sanctions, new developments in economy and space technologies, Russian population has started growing.
The reason why Russians love Putin is because he took Russia out of recession and shock economic therapy and turned the economy around and made Russia a great power again.
The USA and NATO/EU wants Russia to be down and reliant on EU/USA, subersvient to their will, which is why the IMF gave Russia loans in the early 1990s designed to keep Russias economy down and preventing Russia from recovering after the USSR split up.
Putin turned all of that around and has helped Russians take pride again in their country.
He is a true statesman... unlike many politicians in the Western countries! Despite the unprecedented pressure from the West he stays proud and defiant and so does his nation aka Russia!
First man in space. Enough said.
First human in space...
Yes, I know, it might sound weird, but I always imagine the Soviet until on when stressed, imagining their hard times, I'm weird, I know, I'm weird, just don't judge me
He made the Soviet Union and ended the messed up reign of Tzar, meaning that he overthrew the descendents of other people such as Catherine the great
Brought coherence to chemistry research and its educational delivery. He ordered the foundational document of biological research, materials science and applications, and so many innovations past, present, and yet to come. Say that about a politician! He has had greater lasting global impact than communism and all that.
He's a jerk, that destroyed the whole country.
No. He killed millions of innocents. Also he wasn't even Russian, he was Georgian.
He's korean actually, he just sung on russian.
