Time to put an end to the issues on and around Putin. Information stream about degradation of Russian state and chaos that perhaps carries truths but repeated umpteen times becomes pure crap if not a drivel. The same fate will meet Russian & Kremlin induced general information p-ts, e.g. concerning Putinomics and Russian economy led by Putin’s cronies, oligarchs and liberasts. Enough is enough. Whether you will like it or won’t I am to change my priorities for this blog. How deep and in what direction I’ll think it over soon.
It’s high time to stop broadcasting all the news and analyses about Putin. His not unpredictable, just contrary. Everything he does it fulfills the definition of His Big Task during his rules nowadays – read my sticky post every time you’ve come here for the next portion of “fresh news”.
I’ll try to inform about Novorossia and only if serious events have happened.
