Donald Trump’s praise for Vladimir Putin and pivot to a shockingly pro-Russia foreign policy doctrine has made him quite the hero in the Russian media, according to a new CNN report:

Donald Trump’s own foreign policy pronouncements have won him plenty of friends here in Russia: His recent suggestion that he wouldn’t necessarily defend NATO allies in the event of a Russian attack, raised eyebrows both in the U.S. and here; and his vow to look again at recognizing annexed Crimea as part of Russia must have put a smile on the faces of many Kremlin supporters.
