"His summit with Vladimir Putin. They talk about waiving the sanctions on the Nord Stream pipeline, allowing it to be completed.

And then there's also the criticism that Joe Biden keeps talking about Vladimir Putin and his standing in the world when they say the GOP does. Vladimir Putin doesn't care about his standing in the world Here is former Trump Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Take a look. They see American weakness. A president who who took who Blanches said even the ability to put pressure on Vladimir Putin in a private meeting right? Putin said himself, he didn't feel any pressure. In the summit just to take one quick example, President Biden said here for 16 areas of critical infrastructure. I don't want you to attack which seems to it seems to imply well, if you attack the 17th area of critical infrastructure, that's okay. Why didn't Biden said that Putin look no more cyberattacks period or you're going to face the consequences. So first of all, it's pretty extraordinary to.

Fresh update on "putin" discussed on The Daily Dive
"The weekend edition. I'll be bringing you some of the best stories from the week. Big political news this week. President Biden and Vladimir Putin had their much anticipated summit on Wednesday. Both walked away. Saying that the meeting was positive and constructive. President Biden said he pressed Putin on recent cyber attacks and human rights issues. They did agree on their ambassadors to return to their posts. Begin strategic stability talks on nuclear arms and consultations and cybersecurity issues for more of the big takeaways will speak to the hall to see or in affairs correspondent at Politico. The gist of it was the kind of agreed to keep talking. And given that the Russian US relationship isn't such a bad situation and on a downward trajectory, simply the fact that they first of all talked and be agreed to keep talking on certain things. Is considered something of a win. In terms of what emerged. I would say two things. One was this agreement to continue discussions on what they used the term strategic stability that usually refers to like nuclear arms issues. So there's going to be continued discussions on that. And that's a good thing for people who want the earth to continue to exist, I guess, um and and then the other thing was, you know that Biden that he made it very clear to Putin that Have to be some limits on these cyber attacks, especially when it comes to critical infrastructure like water system. That sort of thing. Um, and he he made it sound like he, you know, got that across to Putin and that he hopes that at some point down the line, there can be some sort of a cyber security arrangement of sorts that you know deals with this particular issue and To be clear. It often involves criminals that don't have anything to do with the Kremlin. You know, um, it's but it's more about making sure that Russia will hold people accountable for those types of activities, even if it's not directed by the Kremlin. And obviously, you know, we don't want the Kremlin to carry out those activities. And I think the US Biden made it very clear that has he put it like the U. S has some serious cyber capabilities. Would you like it if we do that to you, But I will say two things, and then they're going to talk about a bunch of other stuff from Afghanistan to Syria. To what Ever. But he he himself bite and admitted that it would be months before we knew if if anything, seriously concrete. What's going to result from that President Biden gave Putin a list of 16 entities that were critical to US infrastructure that he said should be off limits. And Putin, for his part, did say, you know, we want to start some consultations on the cyber security issue, not necessarily something that president Biden said. But it did seem like I guess the message came across, but he never accepted responsibility for it anyway. I mean, believe that they should be faulted for some of these cyber attacks that are going through. Yeah. In fact, Putin claimed without any evidence that most cyber attacks come from the United States. Uh, this is where all the criminals are based. I mean, like it's you know, he is never gonna stand out there and say, Oh, yeah, we did something wrong or were responsible. I mean, that is just not how Vladimir Putin stays in power That is not How he controls the narrative for his own domestic intention constituency. But you know, that's that's just But that doesn't mean that they won't work on certain fronts, especially if the U. S makes it very, very clear As I try to do that it's in their interest to work with on some sort of an arrangement on this, and it's It's part of the problem. To be honest, when it comes to the cyber stuff is so much of it is classified and behind the scenes and Not to mention highly technical that it's really hard to tell when there is actually progress or not, because oftentimes they just can't talk about it, especially in Washington, So it's one of the things that can be hard to monitor. This summit was a far cry from the last one that happened between former President Trump in Helsinki. Putin, for his part, said that President Biden was a balanced professional man. He's clearly a very experienced politician. President Biden was fielding questions whether he could trust Vladimir Putin, he said. You know, it's not about trust. It's about our country's self interest. Now. I told him what what America needs out of our ongoing relationship. Yeah. I mean, look, this is normal. You know, foreign policy is like every country has its own interests, and you're trying to advance your country's interests. And so Biden has a very realistic point of view on that, including said something similar about like this is our national interest, that sort of thing. Although, you know, when it comes to Putin, people will argue with his self interested, cares, Um more about them the Russian population as a whole. Um, but you know the wave. Biden also kind of spun it and I found this super interesting was it was sort of like Wow. You know, nice country you got there would be a shame if anything happened to it right? And you know, but it was It was this way of doing it. He was like, Look, I was telling, including, like Wow. How would you feel if criminals attacked your energy pipelines, you know, or how would how? Look? If you want to have more trade between Russia and other countries? Maybe you shouldn't keep imprisoning American businessman. You know, it was this whole idea of like, kind of Help me help you, But you know, you can also see it as a veiled threat, right? Um so he so that was kind of helped. Biden tried to spin it and, you know, cooks an old hand at this stuff, and it's hard to say, um if you fell for that, you know, But if Biden us through sanctions, other means it feels like talks are not going to work if he uses these other things and really, really imposes a cost on Putin and his And the people around him the oligarchs in particular. Then it could start to hurt and Putin could start to make them good. There was a tense moment during his press conference, They had solo press conferences where he got a little combative with the reporter..

I mean, the thing would have been reported have been confirmed, and he would have taken action. That's exactly right. Well, we've got what we've
Rep. Elise Stefanik Suggests Biden Infrastructure Proposal Leaves Our Defense Vulnerable
"I guess Americans to know that the Russian nuclear Inventory about 88% of it has been modernized about. None of ours has been modernized under the Biden proposed massive multi trillion dollars $6 trillion budget. The defense budget really goes negative because he doesn't even give enough of an increase to cover existing expenses. Correct. That is correct. President Biden budget, which will bankrupt America is actually a cut to our national defense budget because it doesn't keep pace with inflation. This is a really big win that President Trump delivered. We were in the process of rebuilding our national defense. Our military readiness. This is something that I work on on the House Armed Services Committee. When it comes to nuclear modernization. Democrats in Congress are very much opposed to making the critical investments we need when it comes to nuclear modernization. Yet adversaries like Russia to your point mark have made those investments and Putin's top priority was to get that five year extension for the new start treaty. Biden gave it away. Without delivering anything back to the United States.

Criminals didn't break through a cordon going to the capital and kill a police officer. No police officer was killed. A protester was killed. The police officer's name is unknown. Because Biden in the attorney general, do not want to release the police officer's name. In a free society. Can you imagine that? If somebody from black lives matter was shot.

He's all of those things that you just said but he also constantly reminds president biden That he is there not to be and this is something that actually what. I'm about to say that i heard on the Russian putin said that we're not the two lovers who are there to basically sway to each other infinite love where they are representing The interest of our countries. So there's no such thing as trust when it comes to putin he's highly trained for my kgb officer in you know how the russians viewed this summit to begin with They characterize it basically as an intelligence gathering opportunity. Russian deputy minister of foreign affairs. Gator said this. It is impossible to impose on your spy counterpart your own thought process and you interpretation of what he says but what you hear from him and the conclusions you make as a result of what the counter space spy says become food facade so he basically summed up. We're going in to quote unquote strengths than trust and mutual understanding which in russian intelligence parlance and you weigh in What that really means is a good intelligence gathering opportunity as a former intelligence officer for dia and russian-born native russian-speakers.

The administration and the american left in the united states that they think that they're going to get a free pass from other countries leaders in other countries the same way that they get a free pass by promoting all various allies that they've put out in the united states and that's not true. In fact you know to quote another russian source. A russian think tank was writing a few days ago and they and what they were saying what was going to happen during the conference for example they wrote that joe biden will not push ukrainian topic because of certain corruption circumstances related to son. Now you gotta freeze frame. What you're saying here is there too corrupt to join nato but is zero experience on the guy that went on good morning america and was asked. What experience do you have. Energy in oil and gas none none none. I mean that's ukraine kazakhstan. That's the former first lady of Moscow so it's okay for one hundred do business with ukraine but but it's not okay for the us to do business with them.

That's the top domestic threat. White supremacists. Is it a threat? Absolutely. That's the top threat. Not Chinese propaganda and infiltrating our universities. Not homegrown terrorists with Al Qaeda or radical of Islamism. Ideology is not to that. Now that's not the top threat. The top threat is a mass outbreak of white supremacist groups around the nation.

Israel Responds To "Arson Balloons" With Airstrikes on Gaza
"Started up again in the gaza strip this morning for the first time. Since the end of last month's fighting it all started when the new israeli government allowed a far-right jewish march to pass through palestinian areas of jerusalem in response the palestinian militant group hamas sent arsim balloons into southern israel. They sparked several fires so israel's military says it then launched airstrikes in the gaza strip. Those strikes reportedly struck military compounds. palestinian news reports. Say one of the strike's did cause damage but so far there are no reports of any deaths still. It's concerning for a lot of people in the region since gaza has just barely begun to recover from last month's fighting that's when the united nations says at least two hundred. Fifty palestinians and thirteen israelis were killed and more than sixteen thousand homes in gaza. Were damaged now. This latest violence comes just three days into the new israeli government.

"putin" Discussed on Pro Rata
"But first this AXIOS chief technology correspondent enough free shares breaking news and analysis on the most consequential companies players intact from the valley to DC. Subscribe to get smarter. Faster at sign-up dot axios Dot Com and now back to the program to podcast. We're joined now by actress. World editor. David David Lawler. You wrote recently about how after Putin originally took power he focused a lot on controlling information. TV networks but didn't focus until much later on on the Internet on the side of the Internet. What has he done so far to kind of control? The flow of information inside of Russia the ARC basically Putin came to power twenty years ago in his first first couple of years basically he managed to bring all of the independent TV networks in Russia under his control. More or less if you're watching. TV TV in Russia you're more or less seeing Kremlin approved. Programming it's happened in print. Media is well. There's a lot of self censorship but the Internet again is obviously a place where information flowed freely. The Russian Internet evolved sort of in the same way as the American Internet it was kind of a free wheeling system and after Putin Return to power in twenty twelve. They were big big protests against him. He was looking at for the roots of how that you know dissent built up and basically realize the Internet was where people were mobilizing against him in. That's kind kind of where it began in terms of cracking down on information on the Internet as well so in terms of domestic giants Russia has its own big web platforms its own versions of facebook book. Google basically the yen is a Russian search engine if you search for something related to Putin the first results on there at least according to Andrei low shack. WHO's the journalist sort of guided me through this? He says you'll see stuff that you know is basically the Kremlin line. I you have to look harder. In order to find descent and critical coverage edge index while company is actually traded in New York on the Nasdaq as a part of that. Explain to me a little bit and not to get too much into the weeds but I remember when the Iranian protests it happened last year there arraigning government essentially shut off the Internet internally. Not a site. They basically shut off the Internet. Just Putin have the ability inside of Russia to do that or is is it much more like the. US system whereby it's much more distributed so Putin is building himself essentially an off switch for the global Internet. This would be an intranet. Basically a domestic Internet where everything that you are seeing is you know domestically created or at least domestically approved. That is the really kind of scary situation situation. That's happening in Russia right now and we haven't seen outages we haven't seen them. Protest happened in Moscow. Boom we're GONNA shut off the Internet in Moscow ten. He now in other words you you say it's being built or he is building it. Do we know is it built. Or is this like the death star which is a half-built if not legally he has authority to do it and they're testing this this system. But you know I I mean I certainly don't have the technical know-how or the insight into the Kremlin to know how far along in the process it is. It's one of those things where you know so basically Putin now legally will have the power to say. Basically we're going to shut off. The Internet is going to be North Korea style basically the outside world is gone and he says this is on national security already grounds if there is a you know attack of some sort they can control information. I assume that he doesn't have that off. Switch today because we would probably be hearing warnings from from people who know better than I do you but this is all pretty murky. I don't think they're gonNA tell you. Step by step. How close they're getting to this capability in so this is the lever that he can kind of hold out there and say if this censorship were trying trying doesn't work we're going to have this bigger better tool one of the big things? Putin hasn't gone after get on. The Internet is Youtube. Why not so youtube? Basically evolved as far as we can tell outside of Putin's knowledge I don't think he was tracking it at this time into an alternative to TV. Basically people under thirty thirty five. We are going to youtube for entertainment for news. This is a really key platform. And it's one of the most visited websites in Russia. And this is not content that the Kremlin Kremlin approves of so basically now the question is Putin has put pressure on the domestic giants. He sent warnings to Google and facebook about the kinds of of you know the what he wants them to implement in terms of keeping their data in Russia etc but youtube obviously is is part of the Google Empire but is really the most influential influential news outlet if you can call it that that is completely uncensored by Russia at this point google slash. Youtube have not responded positively to Putin's request no so the most recently in twenty nineteen there were these protests in Moscow. Youtube was a big mobilizer for this. The opposition is very active on YouTube. Russia actually sent a letter warning youtube that they had sent push alerts that related to these protests that were unsanctioned and they said if you keep this sort of thing up there will be repercussions here. Sure but no. Youtube has basically gone the way of these domestic giants in terms of taking content down and things but they do face this kind of ominous threat from Putin the idea of Shutting down the Internet and particularly when it comes to youtube taking youtube away particularly for under thirty under thirty five year olds in Russia. How does he balance his desire to censor it his desire potentially to take it down if he feels the need arises with what could be the severe backlash from people who as you say rely upon it for news but also for music and other forms of entertainment so this this journalist Andrei Lucia who made a documentary about the development of the Russian Internet? He basically framed it as if he gets rid of Youtube. He Loses Russians under thirty. I don't think it's quite that simple doesn't matter if a consensual in autocrat loses Russia's under thirty Putin's empire rests on two big things he needs the elites in Russia to continue to support him he needs needs to build this inner circle but he clearly does think he needs the support of the people in every time there's protests there a response in Moscow is if it's a threat to the regime mm-hmm it seems crazy to us this far away Putin having been in power for twenty years to think you know if a bunch of young people start to mass in the streets and expressed discontent that that's a real threat right to Putin but you know change can happen fast particularly in Russia and he is certainly not keen to lose the support of of all Russians overnight. They question for you when it comes to Google and Youtube. They're not as you say not censoring youtube videos in Russia. They have however been more willing say in China to alter search results I it Cetera. Is that simply math. Calculation Elation Russia's not as important to market. We also have seen you know China's censorship of the Internet. You know there's sort of the gold standard in terms of how far they've gone and what pressure. They've been willing to exert Putin Putin. These these levers are still being implemented and so I think that's what people in Russia worry about. They look at what's happened in China and say if that happens here you know the last avenues we have to get information formation. That is not signed. Off on by the Kremlin will go away and so maybe it's either scale or it's just that we haven't gotten there yet. They lawler editor of access world. which you can get it? Sign Up.

"This is kind of strange right like what I would Yeltsin. Choose to hire the guy who was his rival subjects per day. Whether a couple of things I mean one is it didn't matter the Yeltsin was behind the campaign To doom him the fact that Putin came riding in on the white horse to rescue is what resonated allowed us in Yeltsin's mind. They think maybe he'll do this for me one day. Because you know Yeltsin's government was super corrupt. He was quickly making enemies losing popularity yeah. There's no question that everyone at the time remembering the sub shop rescue and at the same time Yeltsin not only physically infirm but all kinds of legal questions surrounding his own own regime The threat not just of kind of a legal nightmare haunting Yeltsin but even maybe something worse something like a coup against him. mm-hmm clearly premium was on loyalty and Putin was the man who had that greatest experience showing loyalty and way he was just kind of in the right right place at the right time. I mean doesn't even feel like he's a main character in his own story of this is like an accident of history or something like his former mentor happened. To become the mayor of Saint Petersburg he happened to appoint him deputy mayor of Saint Petersburg and ironically when subject fled. Yeltsin took an interest in him and he's lucky. Lucky that Yeltsin reacted that way. In fact things keep getting better for Putin not long after Putin makes it to Moscow. He's appointed the head of the new intelligence service in Russia. The the F. S. B. also known as Federal Nyah Sloughs by Belva Nasty Rossio Square Feraluzi the. FSB's roll well it's not all that different from the KGB which remember Putin had been a part of for a long time so he was returning to very familiar territory and as the head of the F. S. Putin began his stunning a set.

"This is planet money from NPR. Last week Vladimir Putin was on stage giving his his annual state of the Nation Address he proposed a few constitutional changes give lots of new powers to a previously minor. State Council give more power to parliament to choose cabinet ministers close the loop hole that allows a president to serve for more than two terms as long as they're not consecutive and each of these proposals on their own might might sound fairly moderate but the Russian prime minister who was once actually a close Putin ally immediately resigned taking his entire cabinet with him. And that's shocking news even for Russia. That's because these proposals taken together are not moderate tweaks. They actually pave away for Vladimir Putin to continue to run the country maybe for life so we at planet money thought now would be an excellent time to rebroadcast episode on the early years of Ladimir. Putin it's by our friends at NPR's history podcast through line here. It is okay. We're going to take you back to two thousand nine for a minute to a meeting. Between President President Vladimir Putin and a bunch of wealthy Russian factory owners which were introduced nugatory which moves us it now just imagine the scene who and whose voice rehearing sue sitting at the head of a long rectangular conference table. He's got on jeans and a windbreaker. Our guys in suits are sitting around that table hanging on his every word and the Russian press is there to capture it. All Putin is asking the group. Why haven't you fix this labor dispute yet? You were running around and high quote like cockroaches before I came Corpus and it's no accident that he's dragging them through the mud in front of the Russian press. This is a publicity stunt after scolding them like children who makes them all sign a contract ordering them to reopen factories and he picks out one particular factory owner owner who again no action is a prominent Russian billionaire whose name by the way has come up several times in the investigation. Oleg Der Pao Ska to do that but did everyone signed this unusual to have have you signed. Yes I have signed still Putin makes therapist get up out of his seat. Walk all the way around the table and sign the contract again and der Pao SCO walks away says could give me back my pen and makes therapath Ska walk all the way back over to hand it to him.

"I think that was the intent was to show that democracy, isn't some shine was. Yeah. It's it's flawed as any other systems. So who are you Americans to tell us that our system is wrong. And and I think there was a sense of personal vengeance in it because of the way in his view Clinton and the United States the above administration broadly discredited, his triumphant return to the presidency personal. I think interesting how it's Obama taunting Trump at the White House correspondence to leverage his his presidency. And so bombing taunting Putin, the leverages Putin to aid Trump, but I want to ask you in the way leaders in this country often model themselves after someone else they'll say, someone's a Kennedy democrat or a Reagan Republican in Russian history Putin model himself after anybody's whereas you can say. That's an excellent question. People will say, you know, he's a new stolen. They'll say he's a new Gorbachev because he's reform-minded Andropov. I mean, people have made comparisons the one obvious one. And it was the reason I titled the book the way I did is he's clearly reaching back to some sort of imperial greatness. You know, people say oh, Putin's trying to recreate communism Soviet Union. He's not. I mean, he he's been saying that for years, you know, he obviously sees and saw the failures of the Soviet system. End of communism. What he wants to recreate his sense of greatness of his country pride in his country. Which when he was a young boy was putting a man in space the first country put a man in space. It was defeating the Nazis in World War Two and that resonates in Russia much more than more to does in our country for the obvious reason than lost the scale of loss, twenty seven million people, and the destruction. On the homeland in a way that we didn't experience except for Pearl Harbor. But I often think that he's not modeling himself to be Peter the great or, you know, czar nNcholas, but I think he he looks at history is a sort of Schwartz board. You know, a buffet where he will dabble a little bit depending on his mood. You know, what his taste is that any given day. What the situation is. So he might need a little Soviet nostalgia. Which you whip up with the the war in particular? Maybe a little bit of the imperial greatness. The restoration of the church, you know, Russia's exceptional place in world history. As the third Rome, he like professes to be a believer and practices though, somewhat loosely. It seems but he wants to be seen as a religious believer. He wants to be a tough guy, and you know, with the military greatness, you know, which can evoke, you know, Borodino and the war of eighteen. Twelve or were too. So he picks and chooses as as is necessary. But they come a nation is what makes him so intriguing because I think that there's this cartoon version of Putin as the super villain. But in fact, it's a more complicated history there, and I think that he believes that he's created this this new Russia. They really came out of this. You know, horrible experience. I mean, what he called the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the twentieth century the collapse of the Soviet Union. They always say Russia's up offer knees. You know, there was a sense that she was down and he's made her great again make Russia. Great again, exactly. And it's the same. When you're looking at at rising, China and a more aggressive to you know, a country that's willing to project power. How do you deal with that mistake in the China is more anxious to protect their power than the Russians? No, I don't think that's true. I mean, I think that the Chinese are are very anxious to project power. In the areas that really matter to them, which is Taiwan and the South China Sea, though, they have opened a base in Djibouti their first overseas base..
"putin" Discussed on Stay Tuned with Preet
"We have a team of forensic investigators here that I manage, and we've been doing this rate Naff years when I when I find the money, we filed very detailed criminal complaints with the law enforcement agencies of those countries. We try to convince those countries to open criminal investigations to freeze the money into prosecute the people benefited from it. And since we started that process, we've found the money, I would say more or less. We found all the money we've traced to about twenty six different countries. There are now fifteen live investigations going on around the world and not only does this expose the the crime that Sergei Magnitsky was killed over, but we've effectively exposed the entire Putin money laundering pipe to the west and a lot of other illicit funds of through those pipes. And to the extent that Putin is mad at me. He's probably equally mad about the Magnitsky act and the fact that there are now fifteen live investigations going on about his dirty money around the world, right when bladder Putin rails against the Magnitsky act and you know hollers about it and invokes you does that actually help your all. It may not be personally pleasant for you end up backfiring on him and helping your cause big time, big time. And so people haven't asked me well, so like who's the best advocate for your cause in the world? And my answer's simple as Latimer Putin. So he's, I mean, I think we've established that he's a at least some people think he's a clever guy in strategically and tactically smart. Why does he do it? Well, I think you're, you're overestimating him a bit, or people are overestimating him a bit. He's not stupid for sure, but is not strategic. He's very tactical and he's also very emotional and very reflexive. And so there's a thing that goes on in Russia, which is like, if you do something, they have to do something back to you just like nobody can like wait quietly for their next move. And so everything we do, our provokes a reaction and every reaction that we provoke ends up creating more sympathy for the cause more awareness of the cause. I mean, after Putin mentioned me in Helsinki at started, getting phone calls from politicians in European countries that I've been working on all saying Putin showed his cards. We now know how much he cares about this to the extent that anyone was questioning the efficacy of the Magnitsky act. If he's bringing you up and he's bringing up Magnitsky than then, it's obviously good thing. How do we get moving on this thing? No, I think when you mentioned on the show last time that it gets under Putin skin, I'm sure that some listeners were skeptical and thought, well, it sounds very self important on routers part. How'd you know he's a powerful person. He leads a decent sized country as you have said, he has twenty billion dollars potentially in holdings around the world. So how can this get under skin? And then when he affirms that and makes it obviously true gives you a lot of credibility. I tell you something really funny is that I got a lot of a lot of phone calls from journalists before the summit kind of coming to me as a person who knows Putin. Well, as a Russian expert commentator, you know, asking me questions and so on sort of couple days before the summit..

"This week, Donald Trump is back stateside after his impolitic trip to the NATO summit in his warm embrace with Ladimir Putin with Trump kicking dirt, all over Europe and nuzzling Putin, Putin chin. You might have missed his comments on energy during that trip, we'll discuss the Trump infused energy geopolitics, tying Europe, Russia in America together. Then on -tario is facing its own political shakeup new premier. Doug Ford is cancelling wind contracts, ending cap and trade and rowing out the CEO and board of the province's biggest utility, but he may have a rude awakening going to be complicated going forward. We'll talk about the policy shift there and Ontario. Finally, apple is making it easier for its suppliers to invest in solar and other renewables, what does it tell us about the power that big corporations wheeled in the renewables transition, Catherine, Hamilton, jigger shower with me from Washington, DC Catherine's, the chair, thirty eight north solutions. Hey, there. Hello? How are you? I'm great. Jigger is the president of generate capital. Hello? Jigger. So let's talk geopolitics. A lot is happening outside of the United States directly influenced by the morass here in the United States. So the world watched in shock this week as Donald Trump stood side by side with Vladimir Putin and said, he trusted Russia more than his own US intelligence agencies when it comes to interference of the twenty sixteen election days before Trump went to Brussels for the NATO summit and there he repeated his disdain for the alliance and called the European Union America's fo. He used that exact word fo- energy was also on the agenda. Although it got buried Trump made a few comments about natural gas that tell us Alah about America's evolving relationship with Russia and Europe, and they speak to this bigger issue going on in Europe around energy security, which is a really fascinating discussion. So I want to use this opera -tunities to address it. So just a bit more background here in the lead up to the NATO summit Trump had been critical of a plan..

"Foment revolution against putin had something on you in a way right because you had been in russia before and had been an activist for democracy so how did they tell us about your experience in russia before you went there as embassador and how they use that against you that's exactly right and you know just because you become embassador you don't get the hit the delete on the web and and your past disappears but but i'm proud of my past i mean yes i lived in i lived in the soviet union russia many times i think six or seven years all added up my first trip there was a nineteen eighty three but i was there at many times and living there in nineteen ninety ninety one the year the soviet union collapsed and at the time in addition to my academic work i was an adviser to an american ngo it's called the national democratic institute whose mission is to support democratic change they do it all over the world and as a result of that experience i met many of the people that that did do democratic regime change in the soviet union and then later became the first leaders of an independent russia boris yeltsin was president and many of his key advisors at the time were we're friends of mine and that history all true now there's one part that putin likes to leave out of that history is that we were there invited guests of the government we were collaborators with the government right about to use the word colluding but i don't know that's too dangerous but we were definitely we were there working together on you know writing the constitution new electoral laws forms of federalism we weren't meddling in the internal affairs of russia in some you know coercive or subversive way we were there because back then there were lots of russians like me who thought that a democratic russia was the goal and that if russia was democratic we would be close partners with the united states but at the result of that you're absolutely right they use that to say that i may professional revolutionary usurper and added to that is my akkad democ writing i've written about democratic transitions and you know revolutions so they would cherry pick and leave out words on occasion like the word not from time but they would cut and paste my economic writings to make it sound like i wish this professional revolutionary it's interesting because there's a parallel there with doing after obama when he first ran for office having been a community organizer some agitator so they went so far as to create a fake twitter account to that that i mean it's interesting again another parallel having the russian government go after you and this individual level what was that like long before most americans have heard the phrase state news and disinformation we were dealing with it in real time back in two thousand twelve it was a comprehensive campaign wasn't just a one off thing it was various different modalities so one would be you know films like i just described on national tv describing the as revolutionary sometimes it got nasty and and really you know ugly remember you know video being circulated suggesting that i was a pedophile that was probably a low point in my embassador oriole service and of course it wasn't you know do we know that the kremlin put it out of course not they're too smart for that they use proxies to do all this kind of thing but it created a real dilemma because how do you respond to that you know you get on twitter and you say i'm not a pedophile and then you're arguing about that and initially we got youtube to take it down to their credit we have had a relationship with google and they did that but then it reappeared on different russian platforms and to this day still circulates and the twitter account that was on election day the day that platinum putin was elected in two thousand twelve there was a an account that that was out there looking exactly like my name saying all sorts of inflammatory things about putin the media was reacting to it you know how could this embassador say such things about our newly elected president.

"That can never be the goal that has to be a means to an end yeah now could putin step down from power if he wanted to or are the too many people depending on him staying in office at this point i don't know the answer to that obviously but my guess is that he can't step down they are just too many people we mentioned eager such an earlier writer ceo of rosneft his property rights are not guaranteed by the rule of law or some courts his property rights are guaranteed by putin and so putin is not in the kremlin he's got a lot of trouble and there are lots of people like that and therefore they have a vested interest in putin staying and i think it would be very difficult for him to retire at this point so if he just wanted to lead a normal life and live in his dock and not take on a political role he would either perhaps end up dead or in prison or could mean already hard and the needs to be reminded of what he did last time he was hired yet job so remember yeltsin picked him out of obscurity and his one job that was guaranteed was to not mess around with yeltsin and his family and the oligarchy that were connected to him and putin kept his word with respect to yeltsin and his family you've never heard about them being arrested they they're protected right but the business people around him one of them the one who is the most responsible for putin becoming president better saskia was his name he's he committed suicide allegedly in london just months after putin took over he went after him and bears oh ski was in exile another allegoric goosen sqi same thing and then hardcore ski in two thousand three the richest man in russia at the time putin put him in jail seized his oil company and eventually ended up in ear sessions hand that is a story that he did and he has to worry that somebody might do the same thing to him should he yeah yeah rather be a poor man in america than rich man and russia tell you that that's a great phrase well again the book is called from cold war too hot piece an american ambassador and putin's russia michael mcfaul thanks so much for talking with yeah thanks for having me thanks again to.
