Vladimir Putin now wants to work with U.S. because of common agenda
Russian President Vladimir Putin now says he wants to work with the U.S. That comes two days after he blasted the U.S. of trying to dominate world affairs. I guess those sanctions are really hurting the Russian economy.
During an interview on the state-run Rossiya channel, Putin said, “We have disagreements on several issues on the international agenda. But at the same time there is something that unites us, that forces us to work together,” the Daily Mail reports.
“I mean general efforts directed at making the world economy more democratic, measured and balanced, so that the world order is more democratic. We have a common agenda,” Putin added.
Sounds to me like the sanctions President Obama and other Western allies imposed against Russia are working. The right wing would have you believe Obama is spineless, but he actually isn’t. Vladimir Putin is waving a white flag of sorts.
