Vladimir Putin says he met with Megyn Kelly more than he did with anyone from the Trump campaign. He accused the media in America of lying and making a weapon out of nothing at all. Vladimir Putin proved himself to be sharp and ready for the traps set. He’s too smart for an opportunist to bring him down. Sorry, Kelly! It looks like she got stuck in the Russian pudding.
Baku-APA. Russian President Vladimir Putin presented a Russian passport to U.S. actor Steven Seagal on Friday and said he hoped it would serve as a symbol of how the fractious ties between Moscow and Washington are starting to improve, APA reports quoting Reuters.
At a Kremlin ceremony where Seagal signed his new passport in front of Putin, the Russian leader said: “I want to congratulate you and express the hope that this is another, albeit small, gesture and it might be a sign of the gradual normalization of relations between our countries.”
When Putin then asked how he was doing, the actor replied that “everything is good. We will talk later. For now just honored to be here.”
Putin, a fan of the kind of martial arts that Seagal often practices in his Hollywood action movies, signed an order at the start of this month to grant Russian citizenship to Seagal.
At the time, a Kremlin spokesman cited Seagal’s “warm feelings towards Russia” and his celebrity as the reasons for granting the gesture.
For more than a decade Seagal, who according to his own website is 64, has been a regular visitor to Russia. His movies, including such titles as “Under Siege” and “Sniper: Special Ops,” are popular with Russian audiences.
Seagal is the latest Western celebrity to have been given a Russian passport in the past few years. In 2013, Gerard Depardieu, a French actor, was given citizenship by Putin.
Baku-APA. Donald Trump suggested a shift away from what he said was the current Obama administration policy of attempting to find moderate Syrian opposition groups to support in the civil war there. “I’ve had an opposite view of many people regarding Syria,” he said, APA reports quoting The Wall Street Journal.
He suggested a sharper focus on fighting Islamic State, or ISIS, in Syria, rather than on ousting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. “My attitude was you’re fighting Syria, Syria is fighting ISIS, and you have to get rid of ISIS. Russia is now totally aligned with Syria, and now you have Iran, which is becoming powerful, because of us, is aligned with Syria.
… Now we’re backing rebels against Syria, and we have no idea who these people are.”
If the U.S. attacks Mr. Assad, Mr. Trump said, “we end up fighting Russia, fighting Syria.”
Baku-APA. The Kremlin announced the two held a phone conversation on Monday, APA reports quoting sputniknews.
Trump and Putin reportedly shared their views on combating international terrorism and extremism, and on settling the crisis in Syria.
Putin reportedly congratulated the president-elect on his victory, and wished him success. The Russian president reportedly told the US president-elect that Russia is ready to maintain constructive dialogue with the new US administration, based on principles of equal rights, mutual respect, and non-interference in the international affairs of one another.

“President-elect Trump noted to President Putin that he is very much looking forward to having a strong and enduring relationship with Russia and the people of Russia,” Trump’s transition team said in a statement. According to the Kremlin, both stressed the importance of building a strong foundation for bilateral ties through economic development.

DANGER – Tensions Rising Sharply Between Nuclear Superpowers
Tension between Russia and USA rose dangerously, on Thursday 29th of September, as the spokesman of the American Pentagon proceeded to indirect, still clear and quite unprecedented threats, about what can happen to Russian soldiers, interests and even cities, if Moscow and Damascus do not alter their policy in Syria. In the same time the US Secretary of State is threatening with suspension of talks with Russia on the situation in Syria.
I heard it got so bad that the defcon level was raised to a three, and now it’s a five.
Defcon nuclear threat REDUCED to safest level following Donald Trump victory
If so, why are there so many riots when President-Elect has already made peace with Russia. Why isn’t the liberal media admitting the truth? America and Russia were about to go to war. We can now breathe, and exhale, this time we have someone working in the best interest of Americans.

SOCHI, Russia — Russian President Vladimir Putin marked his 63rd birthday on Wednesday in his favorite Black Sea resort of Sochi by taking part in an ice hockey match and holding a briefing on his country’s military campaign in Syria.
Putin proves you can still be a superpower and be at two places at once.
He scores 7 goals.
He received the news today in Sochi that his trained military hit 112 targets. No wonder President Vladimir Putin is smiling.
He will be celebrating his 63rd Birthday later with loved ones.
As we all wait with anxious curiosity to see Putin’s next move.
And watch all of those that approve and disapprove.
I take a deep breath, and inhale and exhale.
Waiting to hear all the Syrian war details.
I’m wishing our president carried the same proud peacock tail.
and sipped on the same muscle cocktail.
You showed us what a true superpower can do with all the detail.
It became surreal.
Keep the deal,
and get ISIS
and end this crisis.
Happy Birthday, President Putin!
