    The deficiencies of Russia are covered up by its huge natural resources. Similarly deficiencies of China are covered by huge human resources.

    Russia and China are countries very hard to put down.

    I expect consumer demand to be depressed in Russia but that may not change a lot of other things.

    With war drums beating in the world, Russian military equipment is in high demand. I expect Russian military exports to keep on rising. This fact itself creates an industrial ecosystem in Russia which sustains heavy industry.

    In addition, the import substitution will further drive R&D.

    The headlines like non-payment of wages are nice for an anti-Russian but has very little impact on the ground. The macro-economics matters.

    USA can cozy up to Iran BUT Russia cannot cozy up to North Korea! A case of double standards perhaps!

    Diplomacy is important. I would categorize KSA as one of the worst countries in the world, yet it is USA's best pal.

    South Korea regularly talks to North, even sends fuel and food aid - so South Koreans must be crazy.

    Spurious logic at its worst @jouni.

    The Koreas will unite with the efforts of Russia and China. Time is fast approaching for this unification. Kim and company has to go - better it goes peacefully. American methods of bombing and violence everywhere are outdated.

    North Korea is certainly in a better shape than Ukraine, and any person who has a sense of civility would rather cozy up with North Korea instead of cozying up with the Ukro-Nazis, the head chopping Saudi dictatorship, or entities that engage in uncivilized acts, like using their postage stamps to propagate filth and faggotry.

    Bottom line is, a prostitute should not preach others to practice celibacy.

    Moi! :D oh my dear tovarich ~ if u browse carefully u'd find I posted of Russian economy in "unhealthy" conditions maybe 2 years ago long ahead of the Ukraine turmoil ~ quoting a source that %% of its govmt revenue was from fossil fuel exports.

    me being a neighbor of Russia like u, my heart goes out to Russia but my brain would still stick to cold facts. even from an "ideological" point of view one hardly subscribes to sustainability of ultra nationalism + crony "oligarchy" or "kleptocracy" in your words.

    I guess we both have love hate relation with Russia. He is like a drunken flamboyant cousin, you like him, and want all the best for him but ultimately know that he constantly falls off the wagon.

    How? It is South Korea that suffers in case of war with North. How does it affects USA??

    South Korea would be better off with a peaceful unification with the North.

    Nobody fears the dirty bomb. A dirty bomb cannot work. The physics won't allow it to.

    What the Americans do not want to admit is that NoKo most likely has perfectly working Fission and Boosted Fission weapons. The most challenging thing to make these weapons work is the implosion mechanism and with off the shelf technology this is doable for a determined nation (even pakis) at prices that are inexpensive. The only hope for Americans if they go against the Noko is that Kim's bombs will fizzle. But even that is a massive boom. That fizzled out boom will create so much uncertainty that the whole architecture will begin to demand new assurances. Which the Americans are incapable of providing even today. So let the architecture remain blissful in its ignorance. Do some silly propaganda among like minded people and declare win. Meantime just make sure Kim is kept happy.

    isnt NoKo acting like a buffer for China and Russia from the US controlled SoKo?!!??
    Unification..may be.but it could be a purge or coup in NoKo orchastrated by US.

    It will be interesting to see the new dynamics there then.

    @jouni the interesting caricature u posted was a Japanese one for [world around 1900]

    The message the atlas tries to convey is "Eat or be eaten" in the jungle. The lazy and stupid pig i.e. China (dubbed as the sick man of East Asia, obviously a negative example for Japanese at that time) is nervously looking through a weather glass to figure out what to do.

    The 5000 ruble banknote tells a lot on the love-hate relations btwn Russia and China --

    Interesting, Russian far east history is more or less unknown to me. After 1890s Finns did not had to serve in Russian Army, tax was issued instead.

    Article about corruption in Russia by Finnish magazine
    Russian corruption: State to buy at inflated prices, sell below cost
    The State Duma Anti-Corruption Commission director warns of the dangers of the fight against corruption.

    Anne Kuorsalo / SK


    The fight against corruption can turn a threat to the state, warn the Russian leadership part. At the same time, the public will be constantly elite abuse. Recently arrested former Director General of the Prison Service Alexander Reimer, who acquired a brisk inflated prices jalkapantoja and valvontarannekkeita.

    Reimeiriä and the other two are suspected of embezzlement of 2.7 billion rubles, while the prison authorities kept under house arrest bought in 2010 to 12 electronic control devices. The current rate of about 45 million, but the euro was at that time about 40 rubles, ie the sum has been responsible for nearly 70 million. Surveillance equipment was purchased at least five-fold in the price: the current price is 19 000 rubles, but they were paid either 108 or 000 rubles up to 128 000 rubles.

    Reimer in its prison system as CEO from 2009 to 2012. As the story has been indicted by the deputy director of the plant and equipment sold a businessman, it is organized under the laws of the Russian group, in which case the penalty can be up to ten years in prison.

    Abuses clearing Russian activists of the overpriced acquisition of goods the state is typical. This is called active businessman officials. Equally common is state property selling below cost. The same pattern also applies to state-owned companies, where managers can manipulate the corporate income broker sorting provided that the bonds are not transparent information.

    Reimer was arrested last week of March. The previous week, held in the state and business cooperation, a seminar talked about the State Duma anti-corruption committee leader Irina Jarova. He stated that the fight against corruption can not use the state's sovereignty, independence, breaking. He mentioned the example of Ukraine, where the whole power of the State machinery was destroyed in the name of the fight against corruption.

    It is ridiculous that the anti-corruption committee chairman warns of the dangers of the fight against corruption, is responsible for Ivan Davydov www.newtimes.russa. He refers to the same Assistant Minister Igor Zubinin similar statements. Zubin has found the Colour Revolution have begun anti-corruption slogans.

    The Russian leadership is afraid Colour Revolution. One of them led to the first change of power in Ukraine in 2004, but did not stop there corruption. Now in Ukraine are engaged in another company. A culture is the same as in Russia: the state to buy at inflated prices, but the state companies are selling below cost, for example, the energy companies.

    "The prohibition to criticize the perpetrators of corruption comparable to protect the country's sovereignty and critics address the country's main enemy", to analyze Davydov. He corruption in Russia, as well as a civil service loyalty instrument guarantees that the machinery secret advantage.

    Corruption is Davydov, actually only an efficient use of power tool in today's Russia. Still life explains Davydov believes that the powers that the wrath of ordinary people to the point where ordinary people decide to fight against corruption independently. The powers that be thinking this is not the improvement of the conditions, but the attack power against major financial instruments.

    One of corruption to higher is the leading political figures of the opposition Alexei Navalny, who has been under house arrest. Detention of is controlled with the same overpriced purchases wristbands, involving the former head of the penitentiary arrest.

    Navalnyi has not discouraged the authorities against him tehtailemista stuff but is apureineen recently revealed in his blog how the former Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov's son, 27-year-old Serge, have become a major property owner in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region surrounding the town.

    Sergei Serdyukov owns. Komarov Buy, formerly Terijoki Clock hill, in the early 1900s Juhnevitshin built villa, located in the 1.9 acre site. The area had originally acquired in 2010, Serdyukov's family belonged to the inner circle businessman 154.5 million rubles. The sum is a little more than four million at the time of the Russian ruble. During the Soviet period the house worked the Ministry of Defence kindergarten.

    The purchase was associated with a high since 2012 researched the story, in which the Department of Defense's real estate holdings cared for now leader Yevgenia Vasilyev accused of property for sale below cost and more than three billion rubles embezzlement. The date of the course, the sum equivalent to approximately EUR 75 million.

    Jupakkaan associated with many titillating twists and turns. Vasilyeva was arrested early in the morning from his home, where hanging around aamutakkisillaan the then Minister Serdyukov. He lived in the same house, but at the time was married to one of President Vladimir Putin's close with the daughter of a man. He has not been charged, even though the minister and his wife went in. Also, Vasiliev has been kept under house arrest overpriced in relation to the valvontarannekkeisiin.

    For anybody not a secret that the governors and their subordinates act as senior officials dominate pretty much all over the country, the company's life, the press, the judiciary, as well as other organizations that maintain the order of writes President Boris Yeltsin's former press secretary Vyacheslav Kostikov Argumenty i Fakty magazine.

    Very Kosti, corruption is systematic and editorial office will virtanaan of the elective letters. He is a mistake to think that Putin would decide everything. In reality, the power is in the top administrative machinery, which include, above all, take care of their own careers and finances. In the highest positions is sycophant and the empty speakers who inspired policy-making and take advantage of patriotism.

    Kostikov notes that Russia will be more and more behind Western Europe and the powers that be are seeking the legitimacy of the situation by talking to the stability and Russkij miristä, "Russian world". In reality, it is the hardest Kosti view that you want to maintain the conditions that safeguard the bureaucracy and the nomenklatura abundant life.

    Popular, more than two million edition of Argumenty i Fakty says the end of March in St. Petersburg edition of the illuminating example of this exuberance. The main character has recently been arrested in the city of monuments to protect Committee, vice chairman Igor Krish. The Committee has a key role in building permits, it really all real estate in the center of St. Petersburg are protected.

    Krish is suspected of 4.5 million rubles, 75 000 EUR, bribe taking. His home was found in six million rubles, 00 100 euros, and one of the bank's safe to 600 000 dollars. Krish is home to 182 square meters apartment in the elite house. Home on the walls arvomaaluksia and in addition to the family owns three homes in other parts of St. Petersburg. The property is also abroad: Spain, Switzerland, Lichtenstein and Mallorca. The information revealed in safe assets found, the family of the address, operating instructions for the host being caught in case

    There is no future for the Russian economy in isolation, and cooperation with other developing countries like China, South Africa, India and Brazil will not give Russia the know-how it needs to modernize. While the EU and the U.S. each registered about 150,000 patents each at the European patent office in Munich over the past decade, Russia registered about 500


    Future Can Be Bright for Russia-EU Relations | Opinion | The Moscow Times
    @sgarg, @pmaitra, @Ray

    In 2016, a negotiated settlement on Crimea needs to be agreed and implemented. From 2017, EU and Russian citizens should travel freely between Russia and the EU, not least to see the various football games in 2018. Student exchanges, city partnerships and high-speed trains should be funded.

    Newly made friends could come over to see each other for a weekend trip without visas or border controls or great cost. Criminals would be pursued across all of the common space

    @jouni, the world is more complex than it seems. Everything changes with time. The dynamics around Russia is changing too. I would stick to my forecast that USA is doomed despite its cutting edge technology.

    I would have said the same as you say 15 years before. But the world changed after that fateful day in 2001 when world trade center in New York came down. It was a sign, that downfall of USA has started.

    Technology is not a big factor. Many technologies are overrated.

    You got too dark visions, there is no downwall at sight. US image globally is actually getting better thanks to clever moves by Obama at Cuba, Iran, Ukraine and Afganistan.
