Trudeau’s advice to Putin backfires, Russia is pissed off

in Canada by

Has Justin Trudeau ever given good advice? He gives advice known to the world as peoplekind, so what good advice could he give to Russia?

A week after Vladimir Putin won his fourth term is President, Trudeau said he wants to see Putin do a better job.

“Whether it’s pulling back of his engagement in the Donbass or leaving Crimea,” the prime minister said, “whether it’s taking responsibility for . . . the important questions that the U.K. has asked after the terrible poisoning incident a few weeks ago in Salisbury, whether it’s questions around NATO, questions around Syria, questions around the Arctic.”

The Russian embassy fired back on Twitter:

“We regret PM Trudeau’s confrontational rhetoric at yesterday’s Toronto press-conference prompted by UK slanderous Russophobic hysteria,” said Thursday’s tweet.

“This language of ultimatums is totally unacceptable & counterproductive, especially for bilateral dialogue on important issues, like the Arctic.”

Now Trudeau sits at home with his tail between his legs.
