Russia's population is getting better and better. Child mortality has fallen in the last 15 years, fecundity rate has risen, suicide rate has dropped, then even have more girls at university than most countries, far more than the US.
The US are the ones who said "fuck the EU", that Putin was like Hitler, and blamed Russia without evidence for the plane crash. That's being arrogant. The US have been implied in many wars in the past few years, but who's belligerent again ?
