On its November 21 circulation, Komsomolskaya Pravda, a Russian political tabloid said “the world needs 100 leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines”.

The paper also praised Duterte for its decision to befriend with Putin and China, saying “this is a great start of new chapter between Russia and the Philippines”.
The tabloid also took a swipe on American military activities in the Middle East and Africa.
