Russia's official view appears to have changed little since 2003, when Putin told an international climate conference that warmer temperatures would mean Russians "spend less on fur coats" while "agricultural specialists say our grain production will increase, and thank God for that".

The president believes that "there is no global warming, that this is a fraud to restrain the industrial development of several countries including Russia," says Stanislav Belkovsky, a political analyst and critic of Putin. "That is why this subject is not topical for the majority of the Russian mass media and society in general."

And with Russian media focused on the economic squeeze at home and events in Ukraine and Syria abroad, the absence of a robust media conversation on climate change means his scepticism goes largely unchallenged.

That opinion endures. During a trip to the Arctic in 2010, Putin acknowledged that "the climate is changing", but restated his doubt that human activity was the cause.

The balls? The man's a dictator who kills political enemies. Having balls to do something means you're facing actual consequences for your actions. What consequences do you think Putin has to deal with by saying this?

I never said I liked the guy, or endorsed him. However the idea of man made global warming is bullshit, if he happened to actually say it, he isn't wrong. On that topic.

It should look American. It's a Harley-Davidson FLHTCUTG Tri-Glide.

Behind him is a Honda GL1800 Gold Wing with an aftermarket (probably Lehman) trike conversion.

There are name brand motorcycle dealerships in Russia. They don't all ride Urals and Dneprs like they did before the Wall came down.

There are three aftermarket distributors in Russia -- Bike-Trade, Mototorg and Mr.Moto -- who carry our company's Made in USA aftermarket product line.


ETA: Made in USA

Agreed.

How many people here post crap like "it makes liberals angry so I'm for it." Putin's PR team knows how to tap into that perfectly. They also know how to model Putin as the strong manly man that so many seem to need in their lives.

This.


no i don't think he has the zeal to be a Communist.

hes a mob boss, plain and simple.

look at how Russia is run, you grease the right palms and what ever you want is yours.

if you are a made man you get all the lucrative contracts.

cross him and you sleep with the bears

he cares nothing for the common man or worker or anyone but his friends and enemies.

hence not a communist.
