So, Putin is nicer than Stalin. Heck, Vlad the Impaler was nicer than Stalin. Talk about setting a pretty low bar there.

Relatively speaking? Sure I could believe that.

It would make a nice addition to his headstone: "The nicest tyrant Russia ever had."

Personally nice and charming to everyone in the room while signing his name to orders to do evil things.

Humans are like that ... often there is a huge disconnect especially if they can't or won't personally see the evil.

Considering Stalin? Lenin? Ivan the Terrible? Khrushchev? Sure Putin seems like a saint.

If we compare him with Andropov though ....

Russia needs more leaders like Andropov.

Between the czars and the socialist/communist/Marxists/etc-ists murdering people for their ideals, Russia's had a few bad centuries.
Putin is a pretty decent leader, comparatively speaking.

/not saying he isn't bad.
/but he's not as bad.

Kinda like people said George W. Bush was really nice if you knew him.  It doesn't make him any less of a mass-murderer.

Was it published by the Kremlin?
