Another Russian Patriot off to Siberia
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. Fyodor Dostoevsky. Alexander Pushkin.
It would be hard to think of three greater Russian patriots, wouldn’t it?
So naturally, the people of Russian handled them as follows: Pushkin was killed, Dostoevsky was put up against wall facing a firing squad and almost killed, and Solzhenitsyn was deported.
Meanwhile Josef Stalin, one of the greatest mass-murderers of Russians in their history, was given total power as a dictator and is lionized to this day.
Doesn’t quite make sense, does it? Except in the sense that it perfectly explains why the average Russian man works for $4/hour and doesn’t live to see his sixtieth year.
And if you think this kind of behavior ended when the USSR collapsed because of it, you’d best think again. Vladimir Putin, a proud KGB spy, currently rules Russia at the behest of the Russian people, and then there’s the case of Lieutenant Vitaly Efremov.
