Unsurprisingly President Vladimir Putin won the 2018 election, but Why do president Putin enjoy such a strong support among the Russian public and voters, when he is regarded as a cracy, hazardous desperado by the Western leaders? Is it possible to bridge the gap between the two civilizations? Is there anybody who wants this?The lecture will discuss these and similar questions.
