The Horror of Neo-Soviet Russia
Two reports from opposite sides of European Russia last week, one from The Other Russia and one from FinRosForum, depict the true horror of the neo-Soviet state being built by proud KGB spy Vladimir Putin.
Russia watchers well remember the horrifying specter several years ago of a ghoul-like Putin, in full view of cameras and in broad daylight, pulling up the shirt of a little boy he had never met and kissing him on the stomach. Now, Putin intends to express his love for children in a more literary manner. As shown above, a publisher in Saratov (near Kazakhstan) is releasing a book called “Putinyata,” which combines the Russian dictator’s name with the word for “boys.” It’s full of poems just like those that were written about Stalin and Lenin in Soviet times, and is meant to be read by children. The poems are about the heroic patriotism of Vladimir Putin (with praise for Lenin and Stalin thrown in for good measure).
Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, Russia prisoners are pleading to be spared from torture. FinRosForum reports:
Gen Vladimir Malenchuk, head of the prison administration in the Leningrad Oblast, cannot be unaware of the situation. Indeed, there is credible evidence that many such crimes were committed under his direct orders. Malenchuk is also using all his administrative and operative resources to hamper the investigation into these crimes. He is being backed up by powerful people.
Putin’s Russia is, in other words, a fully-realized neo-Soviet state. On the one hand it is indoctrinating children with propaganda as soon as they can think, and on the other it is a building a vast network of torture colonies to deal with any who may escape indoctrination and try to think for themselves. There are, of course, alternatives to the prison colonies; Putin’s Russia is also using psychiatric hospitals to serve this purpose, also the same as in Soviet times, and it is not above outright murder when such solutions are not quick or effective enough.
Any thinking person even vaguely familar with the history of the USSR ought to be shocked and and terrified by these developments, especially since closely similar events led to the decline and collapse of the USSR. If the world does not stand up to the Putin dictatorship and put a stop to this madness, it will pay a heavy price.
