Because Saudi Arabia just dropped the Petrol Dollar.

Interesting to compare the speedy ICC action on Putin compared to the foot dragging of 15 years of inaction against Israel.

Took 5 years to determine is Palestine as a' place" able to initiate action in the Court.

Court still looking at "procedural matters " before moving forward.

neither Saudi Arabia nor the UAE have signed the ICC's founding treaty

Neither has the United States of America

Putin plans to visit UAE and Saudi Arabia this week, according to Russian media reports

Former KGB agent of international Marxism, turned oil oligarch richest man in the world and supporting the Russian Orthodox Church in holy war, meet Islamic feudal monarchs who support Islamic extremism while flaunting every tenet of Islam in their lavish private lives.

Shows you how old ideologies (religions) are props to rope in the masses to pledge allegiance to transnational oligarchical capital.

I guess a few countries on the short list where he won't be arrested. So much for Saudi Arabia being the US' fault.

Putin bragged about his war crimes openly on TV.

Yeah, right. I am 99.9999999999% certain they still take dollars.

Must be serious if Putin feels he needs to go in person. Looks like he has to ask (beg?) the Saudis not to allow the price of oil to drop. Given he has built a close relationship with Iran including the buying and selling of weapons and technology I'm very doubtful they will be receptive to his plight.

Sounds like an excellent time for Mossad Agents to go take a vacation…on the clock.

Fantastic news. It will really expose the hypocrisy of the ICC as a weaponized tool.

The Saudis turned down Biden's personal oil czar this week when a personal message begging for an output increase was unceremoniously declined.

This important working visit will cover many bases like Syria, Iran and Yemen which SA is trying to disengage from. They have also gone cold on Ukraine; the Gaza assault has left a bad taste in their mouths and surely will influence future policy.

Well, he is obviously sometimes turning into a gifted strategist, not so completely untalented and permanently on the error paths like we are in the West. If he ever manages also to to pull them as Sunni representation, he is already allied with Iran Shiites, into the Russia - China union, which is less difficult for him because those countries are far away from democracy too, then he can use all the Arabic and Islamic agents that are already installed and sleeping Troyan horses, for activation calls in all Western area. And if those minorities strike concerted and at the same time we're done completely within a very few days.

Whether you like Russia or not, it doesn't matter. What does matter is knowing the fact that Russia does not need to beg for anything. Russia is self-sufficient and one of the greatest exporters of energy on the planet.

The Saudis are no longer going to sell oil in US dollars. The "Petrol Dollar" is done. Start buying rubles and rupees.

North Korea thought they were self sufficient, too, and then they became the laughingstock of the world with their poor economy.

Absolutely false. They are merely adding the yuan. They also aren't even covering the total value of China-Saudi trade:

The Petrol Dollar is finished.

The Truth.

The UAE is part of BRICS now. So, Putin is going to Saudi Arabia. While the US is left out in the cold.

Putin is gaining traction in the middle east and he will relaunch his rockstar image in dramatic fashion.

Nobody likes bullies and he has effectively taken on the biggest group of them by standing up to NATO and more.

And now the mid east and the world have seen the conceited hypocrisy on the brutal Gaza assault. Many people feel had by the double standards applied and increasingly Putin is seen as the

...small guy who took on city hall and won.

Putin is visiiting there because the Saudis are presently considering flooding the oil market. And they won't hand him over to face charges as a wanted War Criminal.

3 ( +5 / -2 )

Why would the Saudis flood the oil market (and defy OPEC agreed quotas) - nonsensical stuff.

Increasing output will drive the price down and hurt themselves too. Plus they'd be doing Biden a favor (his bear hug with Netanyahu has outruled that - I suspect they will be looking to penalize him, and curry favor with his successor).

There's no such place

Yep, the country doesn't exist. I guess you don't need to mention the US military or the US ever again.

Yeah, they would like to use a basket of currencies as yet to be determined. Hope that definite plan works out for them /s Looks like it is is going to be another American century.

Yes, a region filled with disgusting dictators likes a disgusting dictator. This is earth shattering news.

Well done Mister Putin..

Well done Mister Putin..

Daddy Putin had a good day! Maybe he won't beat me...

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Doesn’t he have enough going on at home? Might be wise to invest some beneficial time & energy in his own country

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Once he is there, get him arrested and sent to DeHague!

Now wouldn't that be something.

The only problem: will it really be him or just another double?

I assume the second option, because he himself prefers to hide in his bunker under the very long table!

President Vladimir Putin plans to visit the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia this week

Russia the UAE and Saudi Arabia will continue their collective efforts to convince the globe's ruling castes and their blind followers that their oil and petrochemical industries do not pollute, and climate change is not real, knowing that the globe's oil states and corporations are more powerful than sovereign nations, and that a larger percent of citizens in nations everywhere pledge allegiance to big oil than they do to their own nation.

And maybe Russia will also try to see how much more military equipment it can sell to Saudi Arabia and the UAE in their ongoing war with Yemen. What will Russia's partner Iran say about that, as it also funds forces fighting in Yemen? I think Iran has known all along that Russia is a rabid nation, but Iran accepts that because Russia like Iran is a big oil state, and Russia is a state willing to go to war to defend its role as a nuclear powered gas station.

So Putin is leaving the protection of his bunker and big table, he must be involved in something Russians call an 'election', tryting to get 110% this time.
