Vladimir Putin Slams Ramos defends Duterte: 'Ramos is blind. You do not need medicated spectacles to see what Duterte has done'
MOSCOW, Russia — The President of The Russia Federation, Vladimir Putin has fired shots at the former President of the Philippines Fidel Ramos for describing Duterte’s first 100 days as a “letdown”.
According to Vladimir Putin, anyone who does not see what “Duterte has achieved and is achieving is blind”. “Ramos is blind. You do not need medicated spectacles to see what Duterte has done” – Putin said.
“The Philippines is “losing badly” in the first 100 days of President Rodrigo Duterte in office, former President Fidel Ramos said.
“This is a huge disappointment and let-down to many of us,” Ramos said in a column published in the Manila Bulletin.
Ramos based his assessment of Duterte’s first 100 days on two concepts of importance — leadership and teamwork.
The former president, however, noted that there is enough time to correct the flaws of the current administration so that the Philippines can emerge as a competitive country. [source]
