an iron fist in a velvet glove. a proffessor moriarty. a james bond anti-hero. the real head of today's russian mafia and dumb dumb trump's puppet master. he's everything trump isn't. i don't think he's god's gift to russia, let alone the planet, but he has a brain and he uses it. of course in america where i live, we seldom get even a glimpse of the rest of the world, undistorted by ideological bias, so right up front, all i know is trying to see past the fog of self serving distortions some very twisted people here, like trump, are all they want to let us see.
