NOTE: Now that Russia has shut down the British Council cultural offices inside Russia, a reader asks whether perhaps it's time for Britain to shut down the Pushkin House in London?

NOTE: On Publius Pundit, we comment on the plummeting Russian stock market.

NOTE: Russia has two female tennis players
ranked in the world's top 10 (#2 and #6) who list Russia as their home address . They've both now been ejected from the Australian Open, the year's first Grand Slam tournament, in humiliating one-sided losses to much lower-ranked players before even getting as far as the quarter-finals. The dominance continues.

In case you missed this little ditty, I believe you need to see it.

There is a similar deal in the works with Serbia. Also factored in is Kosovo independence (mentioned in previous articles - I can provide links if you like). In other words, Serbia is going through elections right now, and Russia wants to support its "slavic orthodox brothers" to prevent Kosovo Albanian Muslim independence.

Typical screwed up rooshan mentality - "we don't like you, but we want to keep you under our thumb anyway."

In Serbia, as in Bulgaria, the offer is for Roosha to buy 51% of the country's pipeline.

Who says that Roosha is not trying to rebuild an empire any way it can?

Bulgaria ended up selling 50%.

Bulgaria signs up for Russian natural gas projectReuters Friday January 18 2008
(Recasts, adds more quotes, reaction)
By Tsvetelia Ilieva and Oleg Shchedrov
SOFIA, Jan 18 (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin on Friday secured Bulgaria's participation in a 10-billion-euro pipeline that is intended to meet demand for natural gas in central and southern Europe and tightens Russia's hold on European energy supplies.
The signing of a deal on the South Stream project followed talks between Putin's team and Bulgarian leaders torn between Moscow's lucrative offer and loyalty to the European Union's drive to ease dependence on energy supplies from Russia.
"Thanks to this project, Bulgaria becomes one of the key links in the European energy chain," Putin told a news conference in Sofia after signing the agreement, which would bring Bulgaria 1.4 billion euro a year in cash.
Under the project involving Russian gas export monopoly Gazprom and Italy's Eni, the pipeline will take 30 billion cubic metres of gas under the Black Sea and re-emerge on Bulgaria's coast before following one of several possible routes to Italy.

Here's the article on Russia's power grab involving Serbia, tied in with opposing Kosovo independence.

(What's the surest way to make sure that Roosha doesn't come to your party? Invite them.)

In Roosha, the people have adopted a motto as far as government is concerned:


excerpt from article pasted in --

Serbia, which suffers from chronic gas shortages, is keen to be part of the project -- but there are strings attached. Russia is insisting that, as part of the deal, Belgrade also sell a 51 percent stake in the Serbian oil company NIS -- which controls most of Serbia's distribution networks -- to Gazprom’s oil subsidiary, Gazpromneft.

Would it be pleasant to the United States, if some foreign force helped Chicanos to take New England (not even California or New Mexico) under their control?

It's interesting that you must say "foreign force" rather than "Russia" -- because you know that virtually nobody in America's hemisphere has any desire to be "protected" by Russians.

And you must ask yourself why so many countries near to Russia have this "unpleasant" desire in regard to America. What have Russians done to so alienate these countries?

Russians need to feel many more "unpleasant" feelings in order to understand and correct the consequences of their actions.

I beg your pardon, how does the question connect with Russia? I ask you whether it is the ideal of the international law and Hollywood justice, if some force helps a national minority recently spread about to conquer the very historical center of a foreign state?
