Russia is a Sick, Diseased Country

A few weeks ago we wrote about how the Putin Kremlin (in the person of insider Arkady Dvorkovich) was lobbying to help an insane maniac named Kirsan Ilyumzhinov (who believes he was kidnapped by space aliens) continue to rule the international chess federation.

Now, the Putin regime’s conduct in the matter has gone from the outrageous to the truly nauseating.

When the Kremlin’s bully tactics failed to induce the Russian Chess Federation to abandon its decision to support grandmaster Anatoly Karpov over Ilyumzhinov, Putin’s goons simply upped the ante.  Armed men swooped down on the RCF’s headquarters in Moscow and literally shut it down.

Once sees in these sordid proceedings all the fundamental failings of Putin’s Russia, failings of systemic corruption and vulgar violence that make Russia’s government seem much more like a criminal mafia than an institution of laws.  And the system’s greatest failing is, of course that it is presided over by a shameless operative of the Soviet secret police, Putin himself.

  1. Karpov was a highly respected, world class chess master. This kind of cheap, low class gangster action permanently stains Russia’s reputation.

    Like Kruschev’s beating his desk with his shoe at the UN, it will never be forgotten. Poor Russia has everything required to be a success except a decent government. Putin is a huge setback for post USSR Russia.

    • It is much better to beat your own desk with a shoe, than get a shoe (or even two) thrown at your head. This will be never forgotten either (so-called the Bush-shoes mania, there are even video games on that). Take it easy.

    • Ron, sunshine, he never beat his desk with a shoe:D

      You were fooled by the free press:D

      • The notorious shoe-banging incident occurred during a debate on October 12 over a Soviet resolution decrying colonialism. Infuriated by a statement of the Filipino delegate Lorenzo Sumulong which charged the Soviets with employing a double standard by decrying colonialism while dominating Eastern Europe, Khrushchev demanded the right to reply immediately, and accused Sumulong of being “a fawning lackey of the American imperialists”. Sumulong resumed his speech, and accused the Soviets of hypocrisy. Khrushchev yanked off his shoe and began banging it on his desk, joined (less loudly) by Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko.[205] This behavior by Khrushchev scandalized his delegation.[206]

        It actually has its own Wiki entry:

          And here:

          And the fake our duffer thinks is true is here:

          LA RUSSOPHOBE RESPONDS:

          You have offered ZERO evidence that NK did not take off his shoe at the UN. Our sources proove he did.

          • You’re not simply an idiot, but a persistent one, right?

            Nobody told you that he didn’t take off his shoes at the UN or elsewhere.

            With all due respect, duffer, go fly a kite:)

    • And you won’t be able to find any pictures, dude:)

      Just like you won’t be able to find the famous “we will bury you” – “мы вас похороним” in any of his speeches.

      You were fooled again:D
