Tone Change? - Putin Shocks Russian People

Are sanctions of Putin's personal assets finally taking effects? On June 17, 2016, Putin shocked Russian patriots by stating that USA is the world’s only superpower. He made this statement at the 2016 Saint Petersburg Economic Forum (an event where businessmen and politicians gather to pretend that Russia is a civilized country worth investing in).

Moreover, he started to call Ukraine’s president by his first, middle and last name, although for the past two years he referred to the Ukrainian government as "junta".

He also declared that Russia no longer objects to armed OSCE mission in eastern Ukraine, although just a week ago Russian government claimed that no such agreement is possible.
