Lots of idiots in Russia, that listen to Navalnii, but most of them are anderage children. He is the one, you can call pilitical pedofile.
No Navalnii [sic] is not a pilitical pedofile whatever the hell that is.

He's a free-thinking individual who's part of a much larger group of Russians who, unlike you and the other nostalgics who've been used and abused by Putin and his horribly corrupt oligarchic friends, are not afraid to risk thinking for themselves.

You nostalgics are terrified to think for yourselves. You'd much rather point to the good tsar/premier/president and declare that he has all the answers you need, that only he can solve all Russia's problems.

Presently, Putin et al are once again revising Soviet history, transforming The Red Terror and the far more "glorious" Great Purge into the good old "egalitarian" days, and resurrecting the murderous monster Stalin as the lovable (or else) Uncle Joe. To do this, they need an unquestioning proletariat, compliant dupes so that they, as in Soviet times, can live a lifestyle of plenty. while "the people" make all the necessary sacrifices for "Mother Russia."

Pity.

For many years, Haiti, in the literal sense, has been one of the regular American garbage piles of electronic equipment being dumped here. It being dumped at numerous landfills with which Haiti is known throughout the world. Every year in the USA, about 7 billion tons of electronic garbage is produced, over 22 kg per person per year at almost 40 times more than in Haiti. There is no official statistics, but by the assessment of of the experts United States send to other countries up to 50% of old devices.
Poor countries have long acted as importers of garbage of the the Western world. To streamline this procedure and not provoke an environmental disaster in the regions, in 1989, most countries of the world entered into an international convention agreement. It restricts the export of highly toxic and hazardous waste such as medical waste, used petroleum products, lead-acid batteries. Of all the states that have not signed the agreement so far, there are only two. Who do you think?
You guessed right, the USA and Haiti, and most importantly, that this is mutually beneficial cooperation of two different subjects, voluntarily without any violence and intervenes from the state. What a paradise for private initiative!
There used to be an"american sugar box" and "american whore house" on another caribbean island, before lovers of sugar being kicked out of that island...
Agreed, it's indefensible.

If Navalny acted in the United States, he would have long been in prison for life for what he done. I think the authorities are keeping this bastard free to compromise the so-called protest movement (oh, there is a lot to protest in Russia, only this bastard is engaged in other affairs). After all, having this louse as some kind of "leader", and all normal people can see what scum they can be associated with. But for overseas, "Navalni, the free-thinking leader" is suitable.
By the way, the so-called "free thinking" supporters of villains like Navalny, about 2%. When you are told that there are more of them, you are deceived. But you are used to it.

Lots of accusations.

Zero evidence.

Oh, and did you hear?

Five Chechen men were found guilty by a Moscow court for killing Boris Nemtsov, KGB style, rich with drama, in the shadow of the Kremlin, for 15 million rubles (US$253,000).

But, who offered them the money? And why did that person want Nemtsov dead?

The assassinations of both the Kennedys were required by an agreement between the CIA and the KGB in order to solve the Cuban Missile Crisis. JFK was a loose cannon who almost caused World War III by playing chicken with the Soviet Union. The proud Russians demanded a high price for losing face by chickening out, though the KGB did depose Khrushchev as part of the bargain.

Robert Reichm, Berkeley university prof. :
There are basically 5 ways to accumulate a billion dollars in America:
1) Profiting from a monopoly
2) Insider-trading
3) Political payoffs
4) Fraud
5) Inheritance
None of these has anything to do with being successful in the supposed free market.

From the statement of the State Department:
"The United States ... supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Libya in the face of Russia's attempts to use this conflict against the will of the Libyan people."
The State Department rose to the next level of arrogance and hypocrisy.
Or reached another bottom? It’s hard to determine ...

Sometimes.

Russia Proposes Easing Laws On Corruption,
Saying It's Unavoidable Sometimes


Russia's Ministry of Justice is proposing a change to make some corrupt acts exempt from punishment, if the corruption is found to be unavoidable. The proposed rule says officials and public figures could be exempt if "objective circumstances" made it impossible for them to comply with corruption laws.

Corruption that is "due to force majeure is not an offense," the proposal states. But it does not go into detail about the circumstances under which conflicts of interest, bribery, fraud and other offenses might be decriminalized.

...News of the corruption proposal is making headlines in Russia as the group Transparency International releases its annual Corruption Perceptions Index, which gives Russia a score of 28 out of 100 (with 100 being least corrupt).

Quadrupled.

Corruption in Russia's Military Quadrupled in 2018, Prosecutors Say

Corruption in Russia’s military has quadrupled to 7 billion rubles ($109.8 million) last year, the top federal military prosecutor said on Thursday.

Russia ranks among the world’s most corrupt countries in international ratings, with corruption-related crimes costing an estimated $2.5 billion in damages between 2014 and 2017. Observers have said that anti-graft campaigns under President Vladimir Putin’s rule have brought little progress.

“The crimes in this category aren’t going down, and the damage caused has increased fourfold [since 2017] to exceed 7 billion rubles,” the state-run TASS news agency quoted Chief Military Prosecutor Valery Petrov as saying.
