This is an amazing MUST-READ article by Xavier Lerma which is currently the most popular article in leading Russian newspaper Pravda. Check it out!
Personally, I think that Senator McCain was probably right to decline the invitation. We have had Putin‘s views in the NYT and in response McCain’s views in Pravda; it’s perhaps better to let things cool a bit?
For me, this is
an example of more red-meat article for the Russian people.
