Hi Dear John Oliver im really wants see your auditions with you now.If you didnt use fake or just voice
I would rather listen to 20 minutes of insightful evaluation about USA-RUS relations than just insulting Vladimir Putin. There is a reason why he can govern Russia for so long, and there is a reason why Americans see Russia as a threat. He did his job well. Anyways how does it concern you when the Russian president is having financial issues in his closet?
Christiano Vasconcelos
Why he says "our president" with a british accent?
RAWR & Pupatin
As someone neutral between russia and US ,trump is not wrong when he says some US leaders are killers. Dont get me wrong i hate trump as much as the next guy but credit where credit is due.

US is domestically better off than Russia,not a lot better though, but when it comes to the international level the US has Vietnam,Lebanon,The entire central americas,Yugoslavia,Iraq and so many more uneccecary wars under its belt that yeah, it balances out

I am from Russia,living in Moscow,I confirm every word Oliver said,Putin is corrupt to the core,he is no saviour,no saint neither are Americans,but Putin is much much worse.
....and I thought Oliver was objective...

You know guys - As Russian I feel offended of your view about our president. In our shows don't speak about your president or election because we dont care and its not nice - only scums speaking about it before the back. You speak about corruption and can't see your own county dirtiness. You Americans are realy disgusting. Please Look at your own pod! I think Putin is great president - Try to complain with your Barak , Trump or Clinton! And blaiming my country about hack of documents (It'seems dosn't metter what Clinton had all this compromat - you start forget about it) without any proof - You start believe in your own lies! Ah yes! I forgot believe in lies it's normal for American people )
I find Trump abhorrent, but it seems like there was a lot of dishonest narrative in this episode. I usually like John Oliver, but he's getting a thumbs down on this one.
I am conservative, so I often disagree with John Oliver on many points, but still find his show funny and informative - I still believed the information he would cite to be true, but that changed with this episode. I am originally from Russia (and other neighboring formerly soviet republics) and know exactly what things are like in Russia.
Putin is well-liked by MOST of the Russian public (not all), but it is because they like to have a strong leader to appear tough to other nations, so it does not mean that Putin is immune to Public scrutiny. For example, during the whole Kursk submarine incident, his image had dropped because people did not like how Putin handled it and were NOT AFRAID TO SHOW IT - it was on TV and everything, people voicing their angry disapprovals of Putin. Then there's the more recent incident of him going to Turkey to negotiate a deal and the president there kept him waiting for hours before he met with him, which made his public image drop significantly because most of the Russians felt that he needed to get up and leave and not meet with the president due to the disrespect shown to him by making him wait.

Oh, and as for your comment that you can say whatever you want about Trump on TV and be fine - you do realize that Russian television makes fun of Putin all the time, right? There's a very popular Russian comedy show called KVN (a little bit like the American "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" show, and Putin is featured in comedy skits of that show quite frequently in both, positive AND negative light.

And yes, Putin RIGHTFULLY compares Russia's shortcomings to US' because he, understandably, feels that if someone should be pointing a finger at him, it shouldn't be a nation that is plagued by the same issues as his. He is simply pointing out the ridiculousness of the accusations against his country when the same issues are happening in other nations, including the ones pointing fingers. Pot calling the kettle black.

Not that John mentioned it, but Pussy Riot (for example) was taken to jail for hooliganism, not for speaking out against Putin. It was for the nature of their act, they trespassed into a church, took the stage, and started shouting profanities. Whether they were speaking out against Putin or Mickey Mouse, that was inappropriate and against the law, so they were taken to jail. It's that simple. This happens in US as well. For instance, you cannot interrupt a court hearing, be taken to jail for "contempt of court" and then argue that you were TRULY arrested because you were speaking out against Trump.

And no one in Russia listens to any gay ass "A man like Putin" song that some idiot girls made up. Russia is not North Korea, people in Russia do not wake up and pray to a portrait of Putin, they simply like him, just as many liberals like Obama and idolize him.
Phil Stover
Jesus Christ this comment section is atrocious.

First of all, this video is about PUTIN, not Russia. John is criticizing PUTIN, not Russia.

Also, it is irrelevant which country is worse between the USA and Russia. Just because one country did some bad things does not mean the other country's actions are acceptable.
Lachlan Duncanson-Hales
after watching this i came to a realization Putin is secretly gay with Trump. THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How dare Putin mistreat his journalistic critics. If your Brain didn't immediately go "Edward Snowden" you are the definition of a brainwashed sheep.
lu na
"there is no hard proof yet"
let me translate that for you
"i am a paid lying whore and i will say whatever ludicrous nonsense my pimps tell me to."

The US-government aggressively influenced many elections. One beautiful example was Boris Yeltsin.

Even IF Russia would have spread uncomfortable truths about Clinton with the intention to influence the election, that would not make Russia and US even, since the US spread nothing but lies in the Yeltsin incident.

You might think of Russians watching Russia Today as brainwashed. But please be aware you are being brainwashed towards the other side in exactly the same way here.

Usually i wouldn't care, i don't live in either country. But your dipshit government fucked up so many countries in the last 2 decades i'm starting to worry.
Let's see what trump will do.
Getting along with Russia is pretty much the only sensible idea he had so far ( That's why US and British media attack him for it )

Aggressevly trying to piss off iran however is a bad idea.
gagan gupta
This guy who is sitting on the chair and speaking anything is really stupid and dumb. Fucking saying anything, thinking anything. Just anything. Is not there a culture of doing little study and research over someone before speaking up.
Pedja Gacinovic
john oliver is a special kind of moron
I would say that there must be less comedy on TV, because if you need 30 minutes of laugh to be produced on every evening, it surely results in mocking at the generally unridiculous events, persons and things. The other thing I want to say is that discussing on the country that lies tens of thousands of miles from yours is always per definition incompetent. You do not know what it all looks and feels like inside the country you discuss upon. You pretend that the American view is the only right one, because the USA is the richest one. Well, that's kind of adolescent, you know. Do you know for example that in Russia a tooth filling can cost you like a few dollars - without any insurance, just a few dollars for anyone. Do you know that in the USSR the overall monthly payment for gas, water, telephone, TV, electricity was 10-12 rubles, while the average salary was 130 rubles? Do you know that in the USSR price of the book was carved or printed on it at the publishing house, so that it would never change? Do you know that in Russia if you cannot get to the doctor, he/she ought to visit you at home - for free! Every country has its positive and negative sides, and if you are serious about what is said in this video, it only shows that you act like a racist, a believer in the American supremacy. Every big country in the world is supreme, not only the USA.
No evidence for any of these claims. Still funny though.
The libtards should be ashamed to support this idiot who attacks Trump for being able to objectively reflect on the US being not innocent. Yes America you are killers and that doesnt mean one has to be Russian to be able to say that u fooocking idiots
You have to go back.

John Oliver, you're a dog! Your accent sounds like Donald Trump's fart after polishing off a 10 pound of bucket of beans!

I just came to watch the dancing girls to Russian techno again 👍👍👍👐👐👐
The show aims to teach the viewers on a subconscious level to mentally associate derisive laughter with any person or opinion that is at odds with the narrative's take on the chosen issue. It accomplishes this by maintaining a strict adherence to a roughly 20 second cycle in which a stimulus is presented, and a response is cued.

obama was friends with merckel, together they killed muslims and christians throughout the middle east.
Jack KissMyAspergers
He got me with the Missy Elliott joke, but lord, those LYRICS at the end. They sound like they were written by an eighth-grader phoning it in for their English homework. C'mon, guys. You definitely could've come up with something better. A little clever word play won't hurt you every now and then, yeah?

17:00 DNC rigging the primary against Bernie ring any bells?

As English speaking russian citizen i wanna say smtng: Hey STUPID americans who is actually in love with HIM - try to LIVE in Russian Federation first before making statements about Putin,i don't understand how some people can love this guy - he's do nothing for it's people in russia except feeding tons of propaganda and putting money from his oil companies his and his friends bank accounts. Come over here in Russia and see how average people live here in regions - lies,social injustice,shut down free media,humilation of it's own people,deeply integrated corruption,poverty,aggressive religion propaganda,thousands of muslim illegals,no human rights and all tv's lies about "everything is fine keep praise our leader putin". I understand that american gov is not pefect but believe me they are 1000 times better then the government of the one man that we have here in our country.
Mila Semenova
I'm Russian and i very respect Putin. He is really good guy😉👍
My president.Proud him!🇷🇺
I wish kindness to all ( and i'm sorry my bad english))))))))))

it finally works jeez xD it wasn't available in canada for awhile :p
The United States is the biggest producer of fake news in the world. Mainstream media cuck john Oliver is just another stooge parroting US propaganda. It is amusing he can go on such a rant against Russia, a country that is actively working to fight terrorists in Syria that the US funded and trained.
Dwane Azra
Caucasian Americans , thats what u should call white ass people calling black guys African American
Not even Bill O'Riley can take all the bullshit and idiotic comments that comes out of Trumps mouth...
i love that techno track
Gabriela Malinovic
its just his standpoint thenagain, many people reason in realationship aspects that trump may support and may disagree with others but then again this is not a discrete political discussion than just a simple trump putin satyre and therefore not viable enough for the populus to create a certain opinion on, summing up if you really want to have an honest opinion always listen to both sides when you do research and dont waste your time on political comedy like I did now
Dhrov Gupta
dear youtube, you are not showing me LastWeekTonight video upload notifications! Please fix this, I missed this video for over a mounth...
I really hate nationalism.

Hey Last Week. Think you can normalize the volume levels between episodes??
Your Likes Make Me Moist
at 8:43 "last cock tonight" lool
Matthew Walker
so funny. in tears.
Margo Fiddltwop
Putin is not a nice guy, but for John to list the 4 things at 10:39 that Putin has done pales in comparison to the actions of any American president in the last century. The list of cruel, murderous despots the US has supported (if not directly installed) is staggering. Putin is a rank amateur in comparison. As to the anti-gay rhetoric, ahhhh..errr.. John have you listened to just about any repub politician especially governors for the last 40 yrs?

One question about the song: It's cold as shit in Russia, how'd they manage to make fire?
