In the US, they believe that President of Russia Vladimir Putin in matters of national security and protection from the values ​​of the West, he is similar to the Russian Emperor Nicholas I. Writes about this Politico.

In an article in the American edition, the observer notes that Putin is most similar to Nicholas I, given the series of impressive military victories of the autocrat.

The Russian emperor did everything possible to protect the country from external threats, the author of the publication specified.

This king won the territory in the Caucasus from Persia, helped the Greeks in secession from the Ottoman Empire and suppressed uprisings against Austrian rule both in Poland and Hungary,” the expert stressed.
