        Russia has no hope of coming even close to Germany. Germany is an open, democratic society that respects the law, respects private property and human rights, and creates prosperity for all citizens, not just those citizens who work for Chancellor Merkel. Germany represents all those Russian aspirations that president Putin has managed to destroy.

        Putin takes away Russian liberties and human rights and in exchange he feeds them pathetic nostalgia and boring war stories ("We used to be great in 1945!!! And now THEY want to take that greatness away from us!!!").

        I have one more bit of bad news for you. Autocratic societies like Putinist Russia have no succession plan. They only have mobsters who will fight one another for the piece of the pie after the death or retirement of Putin. It will be very destructive and very painful to the Russian society.

            Regardless of the question of political regime, the fact that the vast majority of Russians now live a way better than 20 years is obvious and undeniable. I guess, it won't be a stretch to say that never in a 1000 year history of Russia her people enjoyed a more secure, prosperous and safe life than now. Hence a solid popularity of Putin until now.

            You are speaking a language people simply don't understand. I guess, in the list of things an average Russian cares about "liberties" and "human rights" would be near the bottom. Even the Russian opposition almost completely forgot about them and mostly switched to left populist agenda.

            Oh well, there was a change of leader in Kazakhstan just a couple of months ago. As well as similar transitions in other post-Soviet republics which happened to be surprisingly smooth. And don't forget about classical succession plans from not so recent history - Franco, Pinochet etc.

              BTW some America's NATO allies feature very interesting political leaders:

              Putin is a real amateur compared with this guy.
