Where would you place Putin ideologically and C Level Contact List from your reading of Russian history? Putin once defined himself as a "pure and completely successful product of Soviet patriotic education." Even with the dose of irony in the C Level Contact List expression, there is a lot of truth in it. Of course, it is evident that on Lenin he departed quite a bit from what he was taught, but on Stalin he stayed on the same axis. In order to have a perspective of C Level Contact List Putin's ideas about the Russian Revolution, it is indeed convenient to observe his opinions in the debates in the face of the celebrations of the centenary of the Revolution – celebrations that ultimately did not take place.
In that context of 2017, Putin said that C Level Contact List for sure Lenin had done some good things, but that there were negative aspects that were very clearly remarkable for him. He defined him, plain and simple, as a destroyer of C Level Contact List nations. In this context, he launched his favorite criticism of Lenin, considering as one of his worst measures the granting of the right of secession to the republics of the ussr . Putin called it "a ticking time C Level Contact List bomb." This is a device that, of course, none of the republics used for 70 years, until they finally did. In contrast to his gaze on Lenin, Putin sees Stalin as a nation builder.
And nation-building is C Level Contact List something for which Putin has enormous sympathy. He feels that he is dedicated to it. He thinks of his own role as that of the man who is on a mission to build a nation after strong upheaval that has produced C Level Contact List great erosion and unrest within society. It is in this sense that he admires Stalin. Several scholars C Level Contact List have suggested that, on issues such as the treatment of Ukraine, Putin traces his perspective back to the time of the 18th- century consolidation of Russian control over those then-Russian lands that are now part of Ukraine.
