    This man is real key player in geopolitics. Challenging whole world of west through his iron fist, inspite of weak economy of Russia. He is the epicentre of all power of eastern world. Asia should strengthen Putin, he is writing history himself alone with his blood. And he will come out victorious passing all hurdles. History will remember Putin and will remain indebt to his contribution toward peace. Sometime for peace to be restored for Dharm, Mahabharat is necessary.
