Vladimir Putin is more than just the leader of the Russian Federation. Putin is the perfect example of what real leadership should look like. Unlike weak American leaders such as Barrack Hussein Obama, Vladimir Putin stands up for his beliefs and protects his country at all costs. Putin does not care what others think of him, because in the world that is Russia, values and beliefs are still worth something. Everyone should take lessons from Putin.
Quotes from the great Russian leader Vladimir Putin:

2.) Whoever does not miss the Soviet Union has no heart. Whoever wants it back has no brain.
3.) In many countries today, moral and ethical norms are being reconsidered; national traditions, differences in nation and culture are being erased.
4.) We need business to understand its social responsibility, that the main task and objective for a business is not to generate extra income and to become rich and transfer the money abroad, but to look and evaluate what a businessman has done for the country, for the people, on whose account he or she has become so rich.
5.) Sometimes it is necessary to be lonely in order to prove that you are right.

10.) Indeed, Russia and the U.S. were allies during the two tragic conflicts of the Second and the First World Wars, which allows us to think there’s something objectively bringing us together in difficult times, and I think – I believe – it has to do with geopolitical interests and also has a moral component.
11.) The ability to compromise is not a diplomatic politeness toward a partner but rather taking into account and respecting your partner’s legitimate interests.
