FRIDAY JULY 31 CONTENTS

(1)  EDITORIAL:  Disintegrating Russia

(2)  EDITORIAL:  The Kremlin is Lying about Unemployment

(3)  Another Original LR Translation:  Annals of Spectacular Russian Humiliation

(4)  EDITORIAL:  Saakashvili, Ascendant

(5)  Aslund:  Russia is the Black Sheep of BRIC

NOTE:  Is Russia on the verge of collapse (again)?   We lay out the compelling evidence in our special issue today.  The Caucasus is in flames, and Russians are arming themselves.  The Kremlin’s own people are turning against the regime.  The nuclear strike force is held together with duct tape.  In Georgia, Saaskashvili still roars like a lion.  And Russia is exposed as the black sheep of BRIC.  How much longer can this version of Russia last?

NOTE:  Kim Zigfeld’s latest installment of her Russia column on Pajamas Media is up and running, exposing the Kremlin’s effort to create a holy Russian empire in collusion with the Orthodox Church. Makes your skin crawl.

  1. Great find Robert, thanks. We’ll blog it in our next issue.

  2. Russia is about to lose another neighbour to the west. The pro-western & pro NATO opposition alliance have gained a majority in the Moldovian election, defeating the pro Russian communist party.

    I wonder if this will result in the Russians invading Moldovia and recognising Transdenistrian independance?
