‘Unlike Trump’: Putin Tells People of Russia ‘Today No Such Thing’ As Single Nationalism

WATCH Fox News Channel Tuesday at 8pm ET as Pope Francis visits a hospital in Romania.

Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke out in the first of three TV interviews aired Monday, telling the Russian populace that the collapse of the Soviet Union was the “cruelest blow” on world unity.

Putin also said he came to the nation as a journalist in the mid-1990s and moonlighted as a taxi driver to survive a severe economic crisis.

“This is a different Russia from the 1990s,” he said. “When we looked into the economic situation in 1996, the Russian people, people from all walks of life, were brought together and helped by one another. Nowadays no such thing happens.

“The drop in oil prices and trade that was taken up during the last few years have profoundly affected the economy and social life of the country. And as a result, the life of the people has become much more difficult.”

Putin’s comments were widely welcomed in the U.S.

“Putin sounds like our president Trump when he says our policies are nationalistic and a threat to world peace,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.)

“Russia’s President’s ideas on the current economic crisis sound very similar to ours,” tweeted Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).
