Since we last talked to Russian comedian Oleg Denisov (just eleven weeks ago), Vladimir Putin has done the following:
- Threatened to invade Ukraine with 100,000 troops
- Continued to imprison his political opposition Alexi Navalny, even with Navalny on a hunger strike and near death.
- Been sanctioned by the US for cyber attacks.
- Formally signed law to allowing him to run for President two more times and lead the country through 2036.
With Oleg today we sort through all of it and find the root action that Putin took in 2014 which has dictated all of his actions, including those listed above, since that time.
Oleg Denisov tours Europe doing comedy and has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland numerous times, most recently with his show "Russian Troll" in 2019. He is also the owner of the Steal The Show Comedy Club in Moscow, with regular shows in Russian, English and Spanish. https://www.stealtheshow.net/
