In a surprising change of policy, Valdimir Putin signaled peace with the west this morning by freeing 755 American diplomats who were being held captive in Russia.
The move came as a shock to the US Congress who expected Putin to retaliate against the new sanctions recently placed on Russia by the United States.
As 755 Americans go free from the Russian dictator, many speculate Russia will remove its troops from neighboring Ukraine, have free and fair elections, and Vladimir Putin will gracefully and humbly remove himself from power.
As Senator Bob Corker said,
“We thought for sure Russia would take try to harm us for hardening sanctions against them, but instead they freed 755 American diplomats from the grip of a dangerous dictator! This is truly a clear message of peace from Vladimir Putin!”
