One Response to “Picture-3”

  1. WR says:

    McFaul looks like a completely incompetent person in the role of a US ambassador and
    has obiously very little idea of the country he has arrived in. His fight for democracy brings the democracy in Russia more harm than good. Is it really in the long-term interests of the United States to support Putin in all possible ways?
