Friends of Putin

Quite a number of prominent individuals have publicly stated their trust, admiration and friendship for Vladimir Putin, the former KGB chief, who has become Russia's de facto dictator.

The list is impressive, beginning with politicians like Donald Trump or François Fillon, actors like Steven Seagal, Gérard Depardieu or Pamela Anderson, and musicians like Aerosmith's Steven Tyler.

Worse, there even Jean-Claude Killy, the skier I admire most that has also fallen for the man. A character that many reasonable people see as a ruthless oppressor and killer.

Well, I can only hope that everyone of these famous people got something of great value out of the relationship and that Mr. Putin never turns on his western “friends!”
