  1. Kim, look at this article, I would comment: “1917-1937, 1991-2011”.

  2. I don’t know why. It is the new article on FT, you can find it on their website.

      Russia’s current president, the 45-year-old Dmitry Medvedev, appears to have a more nuanced evaluation of 1991. In an interview with the Financial Times in June, he rejected Mr Putin’s assessment, saying the post-revolutionary civil war of 1917-23 and the second world war, which between them killed tens of millions of people, had been far worse disasters for Russia.

  3. I have a feeling that many of this “explosions” of ammunition are done deliberately to move large amount of ammunition illegally elsewhere.

    I wanted to draw your attention that recent super huge explosions of ammunition which were in Kyrgyztan were not far from the sea, which provides easy access of transport to regions near Georgia.

    It may also be that Russia or just russian corrupt military officials sell WMD elsewhere and then organize these explosions on their bases.

    • Maksik,

      Your comment that large amounts of ammunition are deliberately moved illegally elsewhere from bases near the sea – for world wise use I presume – and then the shortages are covered up by corrupt Russian officials with explosions on their bases makes sense.

      What a fiendish scheme, but I would not put it past the communist mentality of these neo soviet corrupt military minds.

      I can still vividly remember a relative, who acted as a guide for me on my first visit to Ukraine shortly after gaining independence from the U.S.S.R., telling me that even blown light globes were not thrown away as you could sell them and earn some money. To my surprised “how is this possible?” He replied that “you take the globe to a government building, make sure no one is watching, and replace a good burning globe with the burnt out one – after all the Government steals from us so we steal from them.”

  4. Bulbs is for “chicken”. Some much more powerful guys may be upset with Medvedev. Many many generals lost their jobs in last 2 years… this is not “mentality” case. This is the way to earn big big money. Money which would make them, their children and their grandchildren very rich.
