I really wish there was a third side to support here, but seeing how there isn't, what else can we do as leftists except offer grudging support to the lesser evil? Putin is a right-wing imperialist, yes, but the new government in Kiev invited an IMF delegation with open arms, it is openly preparing to enact brutal austerity measures, and it contains quite a few actual fascists as part of the ruling coalition. As bad as he is, Putin clearly seems like the lesser evil to me.

"Putin is a right-wing imperialist" - oh please, give me a break! Putin is just dodgy KGBist, there is nothing any-wing about him, just dreams about USSR empire. But since Russia has no actual integrating potential (unfortunately), Putin tries to force ex-USSR countries to join customs union, rather useless integration project (believe me, I'm an economist) by political, economic and, from now on, militaristic means.

Oh, puh-leeeeez.  The guy invaded another country because he could.  If it's wrong when the United States does it, it's wrong when the Russians do it.

I'm glad you are sound on this issue. The other great poster maker on dA is siding with Putin, and throwing around the F word. Very disappointing.

Yeah, that's him. I never know how many 9's there are. (Maybe he's Cirno.)

I like a lot of his work, but it's time to recognize that Putin's Russia is _not_ the center of world socialism.

(Seven nines, actually! It's a shame though- could've kept with the nine theme and did nine nines. XD)

Yeah, well, unfortunately our friend is an unreconstructed Stalinist who never met a leftist totalitarian he didn't like.  He will excuse all sorts of tyranny just so long as its perpetrated by people waving red flags.  He backs the Chinese on "the Tibet issue" as well.
