Kilig to the bones: Duterte can’t hide man-crush for Russian President Putin.
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte gives his special attention to Russian President Vladimir Putin on their first meeting.
“I have been looking for this moment to meet you Mr. President not only because you represent a great country but of your leadership too,” said Duterte.
Last October, in an interview with Al Jareeza, president Duterte claimed that Russian President Putin was his favorite hero.
“ My characterization of Putin is how I describe myself. He has no illusions about himself. He knows that he was not trained for politics. Nor to be a statesman. He acts just like a president,” said Duterte.
According to president Duterte, he explained why his country Philippines has not been able to develop deeper relationship with the country of Russia.
“We’ve been longing to be part also of — despite the distance. We’ve been longing to be part of Europe especially in commerce and trade around the world. But there was one thing that really stood before us and that was the result of Cold War. And historically, I have been identified with the Western world,” said Duterte.
