Have often thought of the Emperor’s New Clothes when considering Russia. You have a very entertaining–and apt–twist on that story.

Regarding the above piece, the Russian-Belarusian relationship is one example in contradiction to the hyperbolic comments about Russia going back to the past. Not quite.

Please stop lying. Kudrin never said that. Try reading the post before commeting, you’ll look like less of a fool. He merely said it might take a long time for the recovery to roll around, and he was RIGHT, far more accurate than the rose-colored lies spewed out by the Kremlin which grossly understated the nature of the crisis. Your dishonsty knows no bounds, you become ever more desperate to rely upon it as your only means of rationalizing the failed regime in the Kremlin. It’s truly disgusting.

Saying the economy would not recover in 50 years is clearly irresponsible from a government minister (not to mention being utter conjecture), and would be little tolerated anywhere.

Just look how it stabbed OPEC in the back:

Look how it murders its greatest patriots, from Starovoitova to Politkovskaya and going all the way back to Pushkin.

Dmitri Medvedev is a dangerous flunkie of a maniacal dictator bent on destroying Russia just the way previous regimes have done. There is only one response to him that is appropriate: Give him battle.
