Putin Has FREAKOUT During Taped Meeting with Officials

Linkedin Share

There are plenty of things going wrong for Russian President Vladimir Putin of late, that’s for sure, and the stress of the moment appears to be weighing heavy on him.

For starters, he has an incredibly public problem in Ukraine, where his troops are mired in an unwinnable war against not only the people there, but with much of the world at large as well.  If we were to escalate the tactics of the conflict, (nuclear or chemical weapons), there would be little hesitation among the global superpowers to intervene and put and end to this barbaric folly.

Oh, and then there’s the realization that Kremlin and Pentagon sources believe that he’s dying of cancer, and is so sick that he’s now soiling himself at home.

His frustrations appeared to boil over this week.

The Russian leader appeared to briefly lose it on Wednesday while meeting with government officials. The breaking point came when Deputy Prime Minister Denis Manturov publicly corrected Putin after he complained that some enterprises had not yet secured contracts for the construction of new aircraft this year—a formidable task given that the country has been cut off from many Western imports crucial to construction.

Footage from the meeting shows Manturov quickly shot back that “investment projects” were underway, but Putin cut him off to gripe that it’s “taking too long.”

“There are no orders even for 2023 at some enterprises,” he said—only to be corrected yet again when Manturov told him “all the enterprises” have orders for the year and “the Defense Ministry confirmed the number.”

Putin, trying to keep his cool, responded by again insisting he was right and Manturov was wrong.

After the Trade and Industry Minister corrected him a third time, the Russian president finally flipped out.

And boy did he…

“Let’s finish this, what’s the point of sparring here with you? The directors told me [there are no contracts]. Really, why are you playing the fool?” he scolded Manturov, demanding he get the job in a month and “no later.”

Ukrainian forces, bolstered by American equipment, are making steady headway out to the east, pushing the Russian army back in several areas.  There are considerations being made for an attempt to retake Crimea as well – the territory illegally annexed by Russia in 2014.
