is tired of the U.S. dictatorship
PRIME Minister Vladimir Putin has
affirmed that the world is tired of the dictatorship
of the United States, a country only interested in
having vassals instead of allies.

During a live television conference
with the Russian population, Putin mentioned the
situation of Afghanistan, attacked by U.S. forces in
October of 2001, without international backing, to
supposedly eliminate Saudi Osama bin Laden, Prensa
Subsequently, when the deed was
consummated, the United States called on its
partners to share responsibility in the war on this
state and decided who should do what.
"We would like to be partners with
the Americans, but they are only looking for vassals,"
noted Putin, who is running in the Russian
Federation’s March 2012 presidential elections
seeking a third term as head of state.
At the same time, the Prime Minister
confirmed that Russia has many allies. "We are going
to build a foreign policy which demonstrates that we
are not encircled on all sides."
Putin recalled that during the 2007
vote in Guatemala on Sochi’s bid for the 2014 Winter
Olympics, delegates from many regions of the world
approached him to say that they were voting for
Russia because of its independent foreign policy.
The head of government imposed
something of a record in a four-and-a-half hour
broadcast encounter with people of various
professions and political positions, during which he
received 1.7 million questions or concerns and
responded to approximately 100 of them.
