Putin Warns Wokeness Is Destroying The West: It Happened In Russia. By Ryan Saavedra.

Russian President Vladimir Putin slammed … the far-left woke ideology that he said is causing societal ills throughout the Western world, saying that it is no different than what happened in Russia during the 1917 revolution. …
