More Protests & Arrests in Russia, June 12, 2017

Once again this year, the Russian people are protesting the corrupt government of President Vladimir Putin. Thousands protested in scores of Russian cities and many protesters were arrested -- 750 in Moscow and 500 in St. Petersburg. I just checked the "Trump Insult List" compiled by the New York Times and still President Trump has had nothing to say about President Putin -- strange since Trump is so often willing to insult to many of our allies!

Take a look at what freedom doesn't look like in Putin's Russia! Terrible!
