    Far too complicated for this venue, I have studied Russian history and geo politics for better than a decade and worked in the anti- communist movement up to 1991. Russia in now capitalist for the most part, but has lot of issues, that are as yet to be resolved this will take time any new structures in government like the fall of USSR are going to works in progress for a long time, as the USA is today. however they have great resources both in people and nature, and oil, gas etc. so USA is feels the need to under cut their power, since 1991 they have paid off their deficit, ours is now out of control. they have strong military and spend far less than we do, only about 10% of what we spend or less. their economy is growing stronger. Ours....well lets not go there. our geo political view is not much different than theirs, only we focus on our interests, they focus on theirs, sadly we want to be the only super power and are working behind the scenes to keep that facade, it is inevitable that Russia will regain that title due it's land mass, resources and oil, mineral wealth.

    look, guys, we're not trying to achieve super power or anything like that. we don't hate or want to conquer anyone. it's only people who have power want war and misunderstanding.

    Russia DID NOT ATTACK Georgia! 07.08.2008 at 22:00 Georgia has attacked South Ossetia. At 3:30 08.08.2008 tanks of the Georgian armies have entered into city Tskhinvali.

    Artillery bombardment all the day long proceeded, fights with use of tanks and heavy combat material, both against ossetic armies, and against peace inhabitants were conducted. 2000 civil people already were lost.

    The Russian peacemakers have arrived to South Ossetia in the evening 08.08.2008 for settlement of the conflict and prompting of the world in republic and protection of the Russian citizens living on territory of South Ossetia. Georgia has attacked South Ossetia on eve of Olympiad, it is top of cruelty and cynicism.

    Are we in any position to point the finger at them? We invaded a sovereign country under false pretenses. We lost our right to play "moral compass" to the world somewhere between torturing prisoners, secret detention centers, illegal wiretapping of our citizens and a host of other immoral activities.

    Russia is trying to achieve the Super Power status that they once had. Putin is dangerous, he is a throw back to the old Soviet Union and without question should be dealt with harshly. You look weak to Putin and he will exploit that weakness.

    After Russia put the CEO( Jewish Mikhail Khodorkovsky) of the oil giant Yukos in prison these things follow

    MOSCOW, Russia (Reuters) -- YUKOS and Sibneft sealed a $45 billion merger on Friday to create Russia's biggest oil firm and opened the way to foreign capital, but YUKOS has already struck a deal with world number one Exxon Mobil.

    Yukos controlling shareholder and CEO Mikhail Khodorkovsky, arrested in Russia on suspicion of fraud and tax violations

    November 26, 2004

    MOSCOW -- A half-dozen executives of Yukos, the embattled oil giant, have left Russia and the company's chief financial officer said he won't return until he learns whether the government plans to charge him.

    The company's six-member management board has been meeting in London this week. The only member of Yukos's management reachable in Moscow yesterday told Dow Jones Newswires he planned to flee the country today because of the company's ongoing troubles with prosecutors.

    Yukos and its subsidiaries face a $24.5 billion tax bill, and its former chief executive has been imprisoned for more than a year on fraud and tax-evasion charges.

    --------------------------------------------

    Jewish senior executives in Russian oil company Yukos, the world's fourth largest oil company, have fled to Israel, and are staying at a hotel in the centre of the country. Other Jewish executives have either been arrested in Russia, or have had their movements restricted there.

    It was reported that Yukos shareholder Leonid Nevzlin had been resident in Israel for several weeks, and had submitted a request for Israeli citizenship. Several other Yukos senior executives joined Nevzlin, including Vladimir Dubov. Vasily Shaknovsky did not manage to leave Russia.

    Executives currently in London include Steven Theede, the company's American chief executive.

    --------------------------------------

    HERZLIYA, Israel - Fugitive Russian oil baron Leonid Nevzlin, one of the world's richest men just a year ago, is now living a quiet life in this exclusive seaside community, trying to salvage what remains of a shattered business empire.

    In a rare interview Monday at his home, Nevzlin branded Russian President Vladimir Putin a "corrupt dictator," yet held out hope the Kremlin will drop criminal charges against him and other executives of the Yukos oil giant, even if it means heavy losses in his wealth. Whatever happens, Nevzlin made it clear that his future is in Israel.

    Russian Threat Over US Missile Shield Uncalled For Says NATO

    Feb 20, 2007

    Russia's threats to target with ballistic missiles any Polish or Czech sites involved in a future US missile defence system are "uncalled for," a NATO spokesman said Monday. Earlier Monday General Nikolai Solovtsov, head of Russia's strategic missile force, threatened a tough response if the United States went ahead with its plan to site a missile defence system in Poland and the Czech Republic.

    Russia, he said, could easily restart production of medium-range missiles if the decision were taken to withdraw from the Cold War-era Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), signed by Moscow and Washington in 1987.
