Vladimir Putin could barely contain his excitement Tuesday while discussing Donald Trumptelling a forum in Vladivostok that the criminal cases against the former president are “good” for Russia and that the Kremlin took delight in Trump’s claim he’d swiftly force an end to Moscow’s war against Ukraine.

“As for the persecution of Trump… for us, what is happening in these conditions, in my opinion, is good, because it shows the whole rottenness of the American political system, which cannot claim to teach others about democracy,” Putin said, echoing the former American president’s own oft-repeated claim that “what’s happening with Trump is a persecution of a political rival for political motives.”

While he said he doesn’t expect any major changes in Washington’s stance on Russia regardless of who wins the 2024 presidential election, he noted that the Kremlin was “glad” to hear of Trump’s plans for Ukraine: “We hear that Mr. Trump says he will resolve all burning issues within several days, including the Ukrainian crisis.”

Trump famously praised Putin’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine last year, calling it “pretty smart” to take over the country and expressing awe for how it was done.

I went in yesterday and there was a television screen, and I said, ‘This is genius,’” Trump saidin a radio interview at the time. “Putin declares a big portion of Ukraine, Putin declares it as independent. Oh, that’s wonderful. So, Putin is now saying, ‘It’s independent,’ a large section of Ukraine. I said, ‘How smart is that?’”

He’s also repeatedly said he—the self-proclaimed “apple of [Putin’s] eye”—would “end that war in one day” by forcing Ukraine to “make a deal.”


  1. Trump is adored in Russia. Especially by nazis like Solovyov, who loves him even more than he does Fucker Karlsonov.

  2. “Putin declares a big portion of Ukraine, Putin declares it as independent. Oh, that’s wonderful. So, Putin is now saying, ‘It’s independent,’ a large section of Ukraine. I said, ‘How smart is that?’”

    I don’t recall Trump saying how smart Putler was when Ukraine took back over half of the occupied territory. Surely going by Trump’s view of the world, Ukraine are even smarter.

    • Also, I don’t recall Trumpkov ever saying even one word of sympathy for the thousands of Ukrainians shot, blown up, raped, tortured, mutilated, castrated, beheaded or thieved from by putinaZi scum.
      Not one word from his family, cronies or political soulmates either.

      • I’ve heard him say it’s terrible what’s happening to the Ukrainians. So, nope, he’s really not the Ukrainian-hating Nazi you want him to be.

        • You saw what the miserable bastard said when putler unleashed genocide in February last year?
          The words are quoted in the above article. They are indefensible. If that is not hatred of Ukraine, then I don’t know what is.
          He is campaigning on a policy that clearly states that putler will get a huge swathe of Ukrainian land, Ukraine will get no repatriations and no war criminals will be prosecuted.
          Two people whose integrity is far greater than Trump both wrote books in which the details of private conversations with Trump were quoted verbatim. The extraordinary thing is that the same words were used by Trump to both men; double confirmation. The words were contemptuous and despicable, revealing a contempt for Ukraine and an off the scale admiration for putler.
          Those writers were John Bolton and Kurt Volker.

      • “I don’t recall Trumpkov ever saying even one word of sympathy”

        The man’s a malignant narcissist. He’s not capable of sympathy.

  3. Putin knows he has to survive the war till Trump will be re-elected. Than he gets whole Ukraine or at least the occupied parts in 24 hours on a golden plate.

    • If Trump is re-elected. It’s one big gamble, and history is against Putin. Most US Presidents are elected for a second term.

    • That’s not realistic. Then all the weapons delivered to Ukraine over the past two years instantly become Russian property? I know everyone likes to hate on Trump but he’s really not that dumb. Ukraine is not going to stop fighting; rightfully so. The easiest and quickest way to end the war is complete Russian withdraw. How is this accomplished? Putin must be threatened. Considering Trump’s history concerning al-Baghdadi and soleimani, Trump is a legitimate threat to putin. Of course this is not something to advertise or brag about to become elected.

  4. Both morons, putler and the trumpet, have very little to laugh about. Putler is getting his mafia army cut to pieces and might have to take flight lessons out some 50th floor window one day, and the orange one has one foot in prison, and I wouldn’t bet a single buck on him being reelected.
