The LDPR faction leader is convinced that Russia “needs power.” 

Leader of the State Duma LDPR party faction Vladimir Zhirinovsky proposed to militarize the Russian economy, return the imperial tricolor flag, the anthem “God Save the Tsar,” and make Putin “supreme ruler.”

“Our economy can only be militarized. However, I am not calling for war,” said he, emphasizing that they should make it so that Russia is feared all over the world, and the country has to absorb “all the best aspects of the Empire and the USSR.”

He made such statements at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin and state officials in annexed Crimea. Meanwhile Putin noted that this is the personal opinion of Zhirinovsky himself, though he does “spark a quite a fire.”

Earlier Zhirinovsky told the Russian media that the decision regarding World War III had already been made and Russia should be the first to make a preemptive strike against Poland and the Baltics.
