Sometimes even leading publications fantasy ends when placing materials on the "Kremlin leaders-visionaries."

Around 2014, when, due to the events in Ukraine and the Crimea, Vladimir Putin figure with a new force began to worry the international community, the foreign media asked the question - "What Putin wants?". This language has taken root so that even the mainstream media did not hesitate to use it in the title, even if before it has been repeatedly used by competitors.

Presumably, though I admit that one can find earlier examples, fashion has launched the work of the American writer Jeffrey Gedmin in July 2014. In his article, "Out of the Crimea: what really wants to Vladimir Putin," the author begins with the conclusion that Ukraine has lost its chance to join the EU and NATO because of the "Kremlin's visionary leader." The overall gist of the article is reduced to Putin has criticized the standard of lies, unleashing the international crisis and the pressure on democratic freedoms.

In February 2015 Research Brookings Institution in the United States made to the article "What is really wants to Putin." There, the author develops no less than the classic version that Putin wants Russia to respect the traditions of the old superpower, as with the Soviet Union after the Second World War. The rest of the material presented arguments that the president himself has repeatedly voiced publicly. About Western European countries like the United States satellites, the danger of NATO closer to Russia's borders, and the pride of the "return" of the Crimea.

After this article with similar titles began to appear almost yearly.

In the last article, published June 25, the author goes into the history of Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union, relying including "All the Kremlin's army" Michael Zygar. First, the material described Putin hopes to get along with the US and Europe in the 2000s, and then begins a brief retelling of the Munich speech, the Olympic Games in Sochi, the referendum in the Crimea, Russia's participation in the war in Syria and, of course, the alleged interference in the presidential election in the US .

The article itself is huge, but, truth be told, not much different from previous material, with the same headings. In his account of the head of the modern history of Russia's foreign policy, the author comes to the conclusion that, probably, Putin has a clear strategy of how to make Russia an autonomous and independent superpower opposed to the US. For some reason, the leading American media continue to try to answer the question "What does Putin" solely through the foreign policy of Russia, for the tenth time and examining the battered zatortye history.
