Vladimir Putin is calling on the conservatives of the world to 
unite—behind him.

The Kremlin leader's full-throated defense of Russia's "traditional 
values" and his derision of the West's "genderless and infertile" 
liberalism in his annual state-of-the-nation address last week was just 
the latest example of Putin attempting to place himself at the vanguard 
of a new "Conservative International."

The speech came on the heels of the appointment of Dmitry Kiselyov—the 
television anchor who has said the hearts of gays and lesbians who die 
should be buried or burned—as head of the new Kremlin-run media 
conglomerate Rossia Segodnya.
