1) Russian officials favoring Trump BECAUSE HE SUPPORTED THEM FACING NO PUNISHMENT FOR THE WAR CRIME OF INVADING EUROPE AND STEALING EUROPEAN LAND
2) Ukrainian officials favoring Clinton BECAUSE SHE SUPPORTED LONGTIME NATO PARTNER UKRAINE

(1) Advocating Ukraine's destruction as REASONABLE, and
(2) advocating Russian war crimes as REASONABLE,
and on those grounds, he wants Americans to say that his fear of Ukrainian "corruption" was in-bounds.
