        Russia under Putin has been one of the biggest importers of right-wing Christian fundamentalism in the modern era. Putin is currently engaged in a massive campaign of violence against homosexuality under the pretense of Christian values. The Russian Orthodox is one of the main pillars of Putin's power base.

    I am talking about communist Russia, which was anti-religion and far worse than Putin.


It's hard to get worse than Putin, who runs an authoritarian kleptocracy which is actually far more disruptive to Western interests than even the Soviet Union. Many of the right-wing Nationalist Western movements -- from Le Pen to Farage, and possibly Trump himself -- are backed, influenced, bankrolled, or ultimately subservient to Russia to some degree. The whole Syria mess can attributed to Putin, along with the escalation of the ISIS conflict. The notion that Putin is a net positive in fighting terrorism, for example, is on its face a laughable assertion. He's made things far worse for the US.

Mikhail Gorbachev was a reasonable person, by contrast.
