For my sins, I just came across a video of Putin ogling photos of the wives of combat soldiers. “Pretty. . . very pretty women,” he says almost drooling on the glossy pictures of future (or possibly recent) widows. “Can I keep the album?”
The creepiest part isn’t that Putin is an old perv. Everybody knows that already. It’s that his propaganda office thought it’s a good idea to make the video public.
Here’s the video. It’s in Russian but it’s clear what’s happening from the images. I’m making a huge effort not to think about what the old degenerate is going to do with these photos.
