Once again, Putin breaks his Word

Russia, you may have heard, is ruled by a liar.  A man, Vladimir V. Putin, who spent his entire life in the KGB, proudly learning the ways and means of dishonesty and mendacity, until likely he himself lost touch with the very notion of what is true.  As such, that Putin would govern on basis of lies, deception and self-deception, should surprise nobody, and instances of such conduct flow in on a daily basis.  How convenient for Putin, then, that the current occupant of the Oval Office is a helpless sucker, and his predecessor was little better.

Back in 2006, Vladimir Putin signed a bilateral treaty with the United States promising to implement certain policies in Russia to protect American intellectual property rights, which were being profligately stolen by Russians far and wide.

Four years later, the U.S. government has issued a report (see page 23) which, for all practical purposes, calls Putin a liar for failing to do what he promised he would in the written agreement.

It lumps Russia in with a tiny group of nations that are the worst flouters of copyright and patent law on the planet. The reports states:

In the IPR Bilateral Agreement, Russia committed to fight optical disc and Internet piracy, enact legislation to protect against unfair commercial use of undisclosed test or other data generated to obtain marketing approval for pharmaceutical products, deter piracy and counterfeiting through enhanced criminal penalties, strengthen border enforcement, and conform its laws to international IPR norms. Russia’s continued delays in fully implementing this Agreement are particularly troubling, since, with respect to several of the obligations, the IPR Bilateral Agreement established an agreed-upon deadline of June 1, 2007. While the amendments to the Civil Code and Customs Code have been introduced into the Duma they have not yet become law. Amendments to the Law on Medicines were enacted in 2010; they did not implement the provisions of the IPR Bilateral Agreement on protection of pharmaceutical test data.

In other words, once again, proud KGB spy Vladimir Putin has broken his word.  Yet, American president Barack Obama foolishly trusts Putin’s word in regard to sanctions on Iran and nuclear disarmament, even as Russians continue year after year to steal from Americans, literally taking bread out of their mouths every single day.

  1. Reporters Without Borders names press ‘predators’

    PARIS (AP) — Media advocacy group Reporters Without Borders on Monday put Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Hu Jintao on its annual list of press freedom “predators.”

    Of Putin, Reporters Without Borders says: “Control is the key word for this former KGB officer: control of the state, control of the economic and political forces, control of geopolitical strategic interests and control of the media.”

    Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told The Associated Press: “Their opinion is a mistake. The mistake can be put down to bias against Putin, or a lack of correct information.”

    • The map in the bottom of the window is brilliant.

      It’s called “The 40 Enemies of the West”.

      Note the free Pakistani, Kosovo press. Note absense of them “predators” in Iraq (could you ever imagine Iraqi press freedom may face any restrictions?). Note the free Kyrgystan. Note the brilliant of freedom the UAE. Oman. Egypt. Sudan. Angola.

      Thay are all an example for you, poor Italia and Spain!

  2. History has always been and still is a judge of mankind. One of the biggest lessons that it taught the world was that the Soviet communists excelled predominantly in three areas. Lying, stealing and where necessary in murdering anyone that had the courage, to stand up to their grossly deceitful and rotten to the core philosophy by telling the truth to expose this communist sham.

    After all, their sick philosophy teaches their mindless converts, that to further their doctrine “everything is fair”, that is “the end justifies the means”. So what if, “once again, proud KGB spy Vladimir Putin has broken his word”. To him the end justifies the means!

    Similarly it is 100% clear why “Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told The Associated Press: “Their opinion is a mistake. The mistake can be put down to bias against Putin, or a lack of correct information.” Classic FSB (read KGB) ‘disinformation’, or to use the correct English wording for that terminology, it is classic FSB (again read KGB) lying through their teeth!

    • But you’re not fighting against commies or KGB here, Bohdan. You’re fighting against reason.

      And you’re winning.

      • Aah, Dimwit Dimitry, as per usual, you are still suffering from verbal diarrhoea!

        Your quote “But you’re not fighting against commies or KGB here, Bohdan. You’re fighting against reason.” is so full of your beloved Soviet Communist disinformation/propaganda that it just shows you up for the lying person you really are!

        I must remind you that the topic is “Once again, Putin breaks his Word” So how about you sticking to the subject matter and not digressing to your usual irrelevant world of fairy tales, at which you so excel in. But sadly bereft of decency and common sense, to come up with your far fetched fables!!!

        Getting back to the subject matter of this blog, let me ask you a few questions;
        #1. Pray tell was your beloved Putin a KGB Spymaster?
        #2. Is the heading about Putin, and him breaking his word again (i.e him being a lying person) or not?
        #3. Did he not, as “Russia’s President” say that “the Soviet Union’s collapse was “the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century”.” (“commie” empire – kaput). and
        #4. Do the above three point refer to the subject matter of the heading, YES or NO?

        Come on answer these questions, point by point, you brain damaged baboon. But if I’m to judge you by your past dismal record, I certainly won’t hold my breath!

        And as per usual (i.e. again and again), it is you and only you that keeps on winning hands down!!!

        • Don’t cut my phrases. I said here you are fighting against reason, and you are winning.

          #1. “Pray tell was your beloved Putin a KGB Spymaster?” – sure, he worked for the KGB in East Germany.
          #2. “Is the heading about Putin, and him breaking his word again (i.e him being a lying person) or not?” – yes, the article heading accuses Putin of breaking his word.
          #3. “Did he not, as “Russia’s President” say that “the Soviet Union’s collapse was “the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century”.” (“commie” empire – kaput).” – Yes, he said the collapse of the Soviet Union was a tragedy for it’s people.
          #4. “Do the above three point refer to the subject matter of the heading, YES or NO?” – protecting intellectual property? Perhaps, the dissolution of the USSR does.

          Well, your post leaves me intrigued, really. You’re obviously trying to prove something with his KGB past, and words abt USSR.

          But your logic (hmm, “your logic”) – it is not evident, and, frankly, it completely escapes me.

          The link between the four quastions you ask is not evident, beleive me.

          Seriously, without spending time on profanity, could you explain what you wanted to prove by this sequence of questions?

      • Gee whiz, I don’t believe it, what a miracle, you actually answered my questions! wonders will never cease?

        But, but let’s get your replies into the real context, dimwit Dimitry, that you really meant.

        Point #1.
        Your Quote “Don’t cut my phrases. I said ‘here you are fighting against reason, and you are winning.”

        Is lie #1
        What you actually said and I quote you verbatim is “But you’re not fighting against commies or KGB here, Bohdan. You’re fighting against reason. And you’re winning.” Can you, you lying commie fascist disinformation spewing jerk see the difference OR more importantly can you ACTUALLY SEE the difference? And you have the gall to say “Don’t cut my phrases.” Lie #2! chum. Besides, you were actually trying to be facetious but failed miserably.

        Having put the above into its true context and meaning and showing you up for the worthless person you really are. Let us get to the last four paragraphs of your ‘autobiography’ about yourself.

        These are, and again I quote verbatim;
        1st of the last four paragraphs –
        “Well, your post leaves me intrigued, really. You’re obviously trying to prove something with his KGB past, and words abt USSR.”
        My reply; I wrote the above bearing in mind the fact of your lack of gray matter, and therefore making sure that any simpleton would get the point that I’m driving at. Evidently the damage is greater than I anticipated!

        2nd of the last four paragraphs –
        “But your logic (hmm, “your logic”) – it is not evident, and, frankly, it completely escapes me.”
        My reply; see immediate paragraph preceding this one, because this sentence just proves beyond a reasonable doubt, just how badly you suffer from lack of gray matter resulting in lack of reasoning ability. But don’t let that upset you I understand more clearly now!

        3rd of the last four paragraphs –
        ‘The link between the four quastions you ask is not evident, beleive me.”
        My reply; Again see my above two paragraphs, because I argue if I keep repeating myself enough times for you – and only you – some of it may actually sink in. But I’m not going to hold my breath in expectations of you improving.

        4th of the last four paragraphs –
        “Seriously, without spending time on profanity, could you explain what you wanted to prove by this sequence of questions?”
        My reply; firstly you don’t know or understand the meaning of the word profanity, look it up in the Oxford dictionary. Secondly I have no intention on wasting needlessly my good time on a fascist commie reject like yourself. Just keep on rereading my original comment until “what I wanted to prove by this sequence of questions” actually sinks into that thick skull of yours.

        I realize that Russian is your mother language, and English a second language, but you excelled in spelling errors this time round. Back to primary school English for you.

        PS If this is what Putalin employs to spread his brand of disinformation? he is definitely scraping the bottom of the barrel and wasting the poor Russian tax payer’s money! which by the way could be better spent!

        Ta, ta, bye, bye.

        • I realise you can not explain why did you ask those questions and what was the link between them you imagined.

          However, the one good thing is you started to use a dictionary links I gave you.

          Most probably that would help you to stop using word “negroes” in the future. And, this time you failed with “profanity”, but next time you may have more luck. Plus, now you know one more word, right?

          http://www.askoxford.com/concise_oed/profanity?view=uk

          And maybe next time you would really (oh…) refrain from profanity.

          Well, to sum up, what do we have here:D

          No logic explained, no answers explained, told me that profanity is no profanity, and wrote a several-screen-long post cursing, failing to explain his logic…

          Let me guess: I am talking to a plumber, or a taxi driver or a janitor?

          I mean I respect all these professions, I just don’t normally argue with these people, end try to not get them started:D

          I really need to know what do you do for a living – before we continue this.

          • Er, yes, and I ask any of Bohdan’s friends, as well as other blog users to explain that brilliant sequence of questions. Really, guys, let’s find some insights about this brilliant result of work of Bohdan’s (presumably) gray matter.

  3. Yes, shame on Putin.

    Thank god the West has not broken any promises.

    For example, that they would not expand NATO further into Eastern Europe.

    Or that they would not develop an anti-missle shield.
