That statement makes no sense... just like everything else that happens in Putin's Russia.
Why don't you address the fact that Putin loves to praise, promote and put NON-Russians in power... Edomite-jews, muslims, asians, tatars. Putin promotes every racial/ethnic group on the planet, EXCEPT ethnic Aryan Christian Russians! Stalin also was NOT ethnic Russian !!
That's an easy question to answer.
Putin wants Russia to be accepted by all nations, Western, Asian, African, everyone, so he adopted the same standards of acceptance as every other nation would have - all races are welcome in Russia.
Why would any Russian leader want Russia to be isolated and rejected?
Of course, Putin can't adopt a Hitler policy of excluding anyone by race. That's exactly what would harm Russia the most. Putin knows how Westerners think and trade with the Western countries and Europe is best done on a trouble-free base of common understanding.
Putin has done more good for Russia than any other Russian leader in the last 100 years.
Some Russians, perhaps many Russians want more freedom, more open government, less control, higher pensions, more job opportunities, even a warmer climate! We all have our wants. Putin can't do everything for everyone.
