Shes not killing LGBT people.
Ah, that's okay then, a free pass for schools that ban children who are LGBT or whose parents are. That policy is unlikely to encourage the other children to discriminate against LGBT in later life or to make the LGBT kids feel that there is something wrong with them and the school must be right especially if the spouse of the Vice-President of the United States supports the policy. Great.

Russia Economy struggling badly with sanctions it appears.

It's trading surplus for the year will be circa $200 Billion as Oil, Coal and Wheat exports reach record levels.

Russia is now the No 1 Wheat exporting nation.

Putin reflects the Russian mentality , it is grim, probably reflects the climate and vastness. Democracy isn’t really for Russians and that is fine.

One of the good things about Russia is that in some ways it has less taboos. One of the very young pretty girls who is currently in the Trump scandal, would openly sail off with the middle aged oligarch. Over here they’d both be accused of having an inappropriate relationship. Russians are more pragmatic this way, a man seeks money and then has all the young women he wants for as long as he stays rich while a woman should try to be as pretty as she can to land the best man she can to buy her things. Over here we’ve women who don’t take of themselves physically, dress with baggy jumpers, try to do top jobs but then stress under the pressure, neglect their children as they are at work etc.

Sometimes Russia is wrong but sometimes it is right.

Really so West does Democracy ?

US - fiddle the boundaries, candidates need millions to get elected and then in tow to their benefactors, anybody can vote as being a citizen isn't required, vote after election over is ok, media can do what they like. No election oversight and both parties up to their neck in it.

UK - candidates elected without ever having 50% of vote is normal, as much money as can be pumped in.

So these countrys want to LECTURE people on Democracy.

Load of BS
Young pretty girl makes up stuff as she facing a long jail term.
What about Bill's inappropriate actions with Monica and that is one that became public.
As for Oh its only Russians who do it................ how many US Congress (both houses) and UK MPs have been shamed with inappropriate behaviour in last 5 years. This is those who refused to do what US / UK Intelligence services demanded of them.

I think you misunderstood my post. First of all I made no comment about whether the girl is telling the truth but her relationship with the oligarch is a fact , she was probably just for screwing but she was with him.

My point was that he didn’t have to hide the fact that he was screwing many young women. Clinton had to hide the Lewinski sex and that was just a BJ. In a less taboo culture he could just have said that he is a powerful man so can have sex with lots of women , like Berlusconi. Likewise the congressmen who are just doing what’s natural by enjoying the perks of their power , have to hide their affairs with young women as it will cost them votes. Russia is better this way.

Russia’s system is fine for them and ours is fine for us. We have different cultures so why would we have the same form of government. Our type of democracy isn’t for Russians , they like a strong man and we have a gay. Each to their own.

"It's an insane weapon in the sense that it's probably as indiscriminate and lethal as you can make a nuclear weapon," Hans Kristensen, the director of the Nuclear Information Project at the Federation of American Scientists

You mean American scientist have an a discriminate nuclear weapon ?

Intersting from the country that has Nuclear Weapons stored in different countrys across Europe.
Also the US created this when they unilaterally pulled out of the anti-ABM treaty (just like they are now doing with the INF) and now whine when Russia takes counter-measures to keep it's second strike capacity.

Mikhail Prokhorov plans to make Polyus Gold a new world leader in gold production - Telegraph



Quite normal in Russia for rich men to keep virtually a harem of young women available, they are well treated, usually well educated, could be mate's sister, eventually marry well, almost like an apprentice school.

Swiss though take a very poor view and most Russians have big problems trying to buy property there, not to mind gaining citizenship, money alone is not enough.

Clearly the Russian economy is still performing badly !!!!!

Russian Govt external debt dropped by $64 Billion or 12.4% in 2018.

Russian external debt dropped to $453 Billion while its Foreign reserves increased to $468 billion.

Course this doesn't include 2000 tonnes of Gold which only worth another $85 billion give or take.
