Vladimir Putin has stated their are similarities between Democratic presidential candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Soviet communists in a wide-ranging interview with the Rossiya TV channel. He claims he is excited about the possibility of working with Biden.
“The Democratic Party is traditionally closer to the so-called liberal values, closer to social democratic ideas,” Putin said. “And it was from the social democratic environment that the Communist Party evolved.”
Putin sounds impressed with the modern day platform and even compared it to Soviet Russia.
After all, I was a member of the Soviet Communist Party for nearly 20 years” Putin added. “I was a rank-and-file member, but it can be said that I believed in the party’s ideas. I still like many of these left-wing values. Equality and fraternity. What is bad about them?
Putin said Black Americans “constitute a stable electorate” in favor of the Democrats. “The Soviet Union also supported the African Americans’ movement for their legitimate rights,” he said.
“Back in the 1930s, Communist International leaders wrote that both black and white workers had a common enemy–imperialism and capitalism. They also wrote that these people could become the most effective group in the future revolutionary battle.”
“So, this is something that can be seen, to a degree, as common values, if not a unifying agent.
It is clear Vladimir Putin is rooting for Joe Biden in this election. He is smart enough to know that under Democrat leadership America will be weaker.
