President Rodrigo Duterte is becoming known everywhere,
During the ASEAN Summit, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told Duterte “You are a famous figure in Japan”.
In Indonesia, the head of National Narcotics Agency Budi Waseso said he wanted to follow Duterte’s steps in battling illegal drugs.
President Rodrigo Duterte may not be everyone’s favorite person, but despite the criticisms and ‘punches’ he get, either local or international, there are those who admire the president and his tough-stance in fighting crime and corruption.
And just recently, a Facebook post went viral about President Duterte’s “smartness and courage” being on a Russian newspaper and how the article made an impact to him and OFWs in Russia.
As shared by GJ Emeka Johnson, a Russian Duterte supporter who lives in Moscow, he was amazed and surprised that President Duterte is also popular in Russia despite his controversial statement, purportedly, in reference to US President Barack Obama.

Dear Mr President,
When I opened Russian newspaper today and saw your photo in there, I was really amazed. Amazed….. and happy. There is a short article how Obama is afraid asking you [a] questions, because he knows that your replies are brilliant. They are on the highest diplomatic level, that can make shut up anybody….. This article is the proof that your smartness and courage are known already everywhere, even here in Russia.
Me and OFWS here wish you all the best… we wish you never give up because you’re the last hope for the Philippines. You’re the last angel who came not to talk but to do. We love you, Mr President Rodrigo Duterte!
