Hei, I'm sticking up for Sweden in that nasty thread by that Danish fellow you fled many months ago.

Question

For the lulz on the other page, who of the Kremlinologists can identify this guy that I claim will likely be the successor to Putin:

I'm not sure if I count as a Kremlinologist, but here's another pic of him.

Good job, Orphia.

It's Dmitry Rogozin, currently the head of Roskosmos.

I'm pretty sure that if Vlad hadn't ended up being a dictator, he'd have found a superb career in stand-up comedy.

More like a badly executed version of the old Russian Double Headed Eagle under the Czars...

As opposed to Russia invading Ukraine, which would never happen.

Putin has reluctantly decided he will have a go, if the people want him to stay, so the obvious answer is to hold a referendum on the issue.

In what will clearly be an honest and free vote, I can't wait to see the results.

All Hail Emperor Vladimir I!

What a selfless chap this bloke is. We could all take a leaf out of his book and be more giving of ourselves.

I'm going to bet $5 he stays on as President.

Any takers?

He did it. Anyone take you up on your bet?

Wait, TA, I think I misunderstood.

You bet he'd have another run in an election?

That hasn't happened yet; my bad.

No, you were on it, but nobody was ever going to bet against it.

I'm pretty sure Vlad has his eyes on Stalin's record period as leader of 26 years and he's already at 17, so should clean that up in 2030, with still another six years to go.

He'll only be 84 when his time's up and if he wants to carry on I doubt anyone will try to stop him. It'll be interesting to see if he trusts anyone enough to groom them for the job, because if he doesn't, succession could be pretty messy.

I don't think it's that they love him, just that he's infinitely preferable to the pinko commie pedophile filth known as Democrats.

I think they do.
They yearn for a strongman like him.

Just imagine for a moment the QAnon wing of the U.S. hearing claims like this.

Btw, we will get a lot of awful news from Ukraine in the short future, because Yankistan has a new president who is the corrupt, senile and pervert head of that Ukraine scheme in the first place."Texas" in Donbass, a Yankistani of my flavour, explains it here:

I do give you 10/10 for humour, though. Vlad is a god in your eyes.

Don't you like in Germany? I imagine you're probably more free with your Vladimir-love here than in your country.
