    Somehow, a Kicking season is on for Americans. Only that they're the ones getting kicked everywhere.
    Whats more, they are the ones with longest and deepest tentacles around :p and hence we see these global fireworks.
    I think quite conforming to his character, Putin said "enough" to it and this is a part of the consequences.

    Regards,

    Russians obviously have more sense than our GOI. India also should tighten rules on foreign governments running aid/development programs and interfering in politics etc on the sly. Russia recently banned foreign NGOs recently also for acting as agents of external entities.

    Well, Russia did not exactly close foreign NGOs. These foreign NGOs were brought under greater scrutiny, especially their activities and funding due to a law that was passed recently by Russia. USAID closing offices is part of that program.

    Well done Russia. It's time to weed United States influence out from all parts of the world where it is unwanted and undesirable. Our own government would do well if they simply expose and expel the US supported protesters at various levels of the Kudankulam project.

    Will all these countries agree?

    United States foreign aid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    India gets only ~130 million $US, but be sure to tell your government to decline even that pittance so you can hold your head high.

    Sir,

    You're heeding to 0.0000000000000001% of the population of this Country. Ignore them. The educated and informed ones wants US of A.

    This is not a public poll, this is just a forum, where many are idiots without having the galls to grow up.

    We are grateful for your benevolence and generosity. However, we only want to counter the channels which the US funds for serving its own covert interests.
