Time portrays Putin with “rogue states empire”
The publication is written by well-known American journalist Simon Shuster.
The Time has featured Russian President Vladimir Putin on its cover. It shows the politician towering above the globe and leaning on it with both his hands. Geotags are located on the surface of the globe. The caption says: “Russia’s Other Plot. Inside his growing empire of rogue states.”
The publication by well-known journalist Simon Shuster speaks about Russia's participation in conflicts, particularly in Venezuela and Syria. According to Shuster, the Russian politician succeeded in creating an empire of “failed states.” In addition, the countries which Putin influences include Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Nicaragua, Hungary, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Sudan, and Indonesia.
Shuster claims that Putin has four ways to influence 28 countries of the world: informational, military, economic, and diplomatic.
General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
