  1. The flip side

    “The witch has lost: now everything is permitted” seems to be the operative motto of the day in the Kremlin and its environs. Thus, the de-facto leader of the opposition – the only opposition politician with presidential potential – is to be further harassed and, possibly, imprisoned on transparently bogus charges. Russia’s long slide to misery has …

  2. America’s Orange Revolution: what will Russians learn from it?

    I thought the Monster Vote was merely wishful thinking by escapist desperados – until it materialized. Well done, folks. Now I fear that certain people in the Kremlin, who do not believe in the possibility of government by the people will interpret Trump’s victory as the successful outcome of a “special operation.” Ridiculous as it …

  3. A robust effort to figure out what’s going on

    The Wall Street Journal reported on October 7: The organization WikiLeaks on Friday [Oct. 7] released what it claimed to be Clinton campaign email correspondence revealing excerpts from paid speeches that Hillary Clinton gave in recent years, before her presidential bid. As I understand, it was a collection of “flags” from HRC’s paid-for speeches before …

  4. Why HRC deserves to become the POTUS

    Yes, Secretary Clinton deserves the world’s top job: she has sacrificed her entire life to the quest for this prize. It must have hurt a lot to deny oneself some of the simple normalcies commoners take for granted. Donald Trump, in contrast, has lived to the full: wealth, privilege, success, defeat and newly found success, …

  5. The art of the quick health fix, from Brezhnev to HRC & DJT

    September 24, 2016 by AK

    When Brezhnev died in November 1982, he was almost 76 years old. Since the mid-1970s, he had been mocked for his apparent senility – approaching dementia – and for his slurred speech. Many Russians remember him as a decrepit wreck, unable to fluently read a speech printed on a sheet of paper, probably in big letters. The …

  6. The Kremlin’s delusions?

    0

    July 24, 2016 by AK

    As far as Ukraine is concerned, the Kremlin’s propaganda has been surprisingly well-received in diverse quarters, as evidenced by comments both at the left-leaning Crooked Timber and on pro-Trump sites. The same probably applies to Moscow’s Syrian narrative, but I cannot estimate with acceptable precision how far it deviates from the truth, since the truth …

  7. The Kremlin’s candidate? Surely you’re joking, Mr. Crowley

    April 30, 2016 by AK

    Why would a TV channel owned and financed by an unfriendly country support a US presidential candidate? In the case of RT, I can think of five reasons: The Kremlin thinks RT’s support can help Trump win. That’s naive or delusional or both, but still possible. Putin is trolling Americans for the fun of it. …

  8. The US election and Moscow’s preference

    April 24, 2016 by AK

    There are a number of reasons why Moscow may sincerely want Trump to be elected president. Trump is more of an isolationist and less of an interventionist than Hillary Clinton. Trump has no foreign policy experience and no experience holding public office, in contrast to Secretary Clinton. The Kremlin feels more at ease with business …

  9. Lobbying for state-controlled firms – or the controlling states?

    April 8, 2016 by AK

    John Schindler has denounced the Podesta Group, whose CEO Tony Podesta is an influential Hillary Clinton backer, for contracting to lobby on behalf of Sberbank “on the scope of U.S. sanctions against Russia for its role in the Ukraine conflict and whether relief is possible.” I agree that the Podesta Group is now acting on behalf of Russia, not merely …
