Delirium of the day

It seems like Washington Times editors run out of sane persons to write op-ed on Russian politics. I cannot think of any rational reasons for publishing “Standing up to Russia” by Tsotne Bakuria. Below are some most interesting passages from his article:

They (Russian leaders) dream of restoring the Soviet Union to all its crumbling, dysfunctional glory. They dream of seeing the United States under a red flag (seriously). Communism is a latent virus in Eastern Europe, but forces are bent on seeing it become active again.

I grew up under communism and its harsh, vicelike grip on my country. Drinking Coca-Cola was prohibited.

KGB forced us to drink Pepsi.

Watching Hollywood movies might land you 12 years in a Siberian gulag.

On the other hand selling videos with Swedish hard porn could get you maximum 5 years in an ordinary prison.

Reading Alexander Solzhenitsyn? You might as well drink arsenic the next morning and get it over with.

I personally run out of arsenic when I was reading Solzhenitsyn with my friends. That’s why I’m still alive.

A schoolmate of mine showed up one day in a pair of new Nike sneakers. For the next three weeks, he was mysteriously absent from school. The local police took him in for days of questioning.

Soviets were fighting competitors of Adidas (that was produced in Leningrad), you know.

Torturing journalists. Killing opposition voices. I remember listening to the Soviet-scrambled Voice of America in a musty, dank basement, afraid we would go to jail. Cars stopping in the night; KGB officers in black leather coats branding Kalashnikovs, taking innocent people away in the dark.

Those KGB officers also wore chains, high heel boots, runes tattooed on their foreheads. They also spoke with heavy American accent. Almost forgot – watching those KGB officers might land you 12 years in a Siberian gulag.

Do gambling-crazed, oil-rich, nightclub hopping Russian citizens really yearn for their ignoble past?

Tsotne Bakuria is a former member of the Georgian Parliament and visiting scholar at George Washington University. George Washington University is definitely in a very poor state. How can anyone explain why they recruit scholars at mental asylums?

Konstantin, this is such a funny break-down of the article, such an article should not be taken seriously :)The guy is really retarded, I can not put it in anther words; though the really retarded ones are those who gave him the title "visiting scholar ". It's like watching one of those clod war movies Hollywood used to produce every now and then . Now it seems to be a trend and a fashion to be Anti-Russian and to show as much “russphobia” in your writings as you can - it makes one look smart and "belongs to the modern world"!
This is not the 1st time we read something like this in Washington Post, almost weekly they have such "friendly" article about Russia. And the sad thing is that they are written by such ignorant people and such phobia-motivated ones that sometimes I feel time has flied back 20 years or something and Regan will be on TV in a couple of hours!
Nice blog, keep the great work!

“Reading Alexander Solzhenitsyn? You might as well drink arsenic the next morning and get it over with.

This is just awesome, I’m laughing loudly at this one!
Really love this blog

That's it! I doubt this georgian really wrote that article - it seems it's written by those who knows Russia only by low-minded halfpenny Hollywood movies.

No doubt: this IS the funniest comment I've read recently. Zhuganov and Luzhkov in charge of Russian policy? Is this just a Georgian conman or is he serious? And do these Yanks really swallow this crap? Woud explain a lot..

Hi Konstantin, did you google the writer of this funny article? You should. He used to be from the once pro-Russian (?r more pro-smuggle) Revival Party of Adjaria. Guess he chose a new career.. Coen

Aha, here I find the Georgian ambassador warned the Washington Times already in september about the identity of this writer. Did'n help, obviously.

And Z - this funny article is from the Washington TIMES, not the Washington POST. These are different animals altogether. The W.T. is the standard bearer of the neo-cons, the W.P. is a serious newspaper most of the time...Coen

What a KGB style comments by "Anonymous" and "Z" and Russia's another big thinker "Konstantine". bravo people just get in your mind the idea of your country's complex of inferiority. I wonder how those by Putin enslaved russians are getting so blind and rediculously stupid . I love the story published by Bakuria a year ago. by the way "genious" russian kgb advocate Mr.Z,A and K The Washington Times is one the of the most influential Newspaper in America.sounds like KGB propaganda did not tell you this. please get back in your who knows for how many times enslaved country and be quiet as long as the free media is having it's strong word.

I'm just wodering why those Russian's always sound as if they were gays ? why those men are so weak and fool? Washington Times is The Amnericas Newspaper.as for as KGB Boris Pasternak was detained in 1960 for one reason only -reading loud out Alexander Solshenizin. well... kommunists do love being liars. what the hell is Coen?

Their eyes tell stories of dreams that will likely never come true. They are orphans of the former Soviet Union. Some live in the streets, with no home - no hope. They sniff glue in hopes of numbing the anguish. They're young very young. But some are fortunate. bet nfl They're brought here to a Ukrainian orphanage where they are given care, education, and a chance. But history teacher, Sergey, told The 700 Club's Terry Meeuwsen that it's still not easy.
"Terry, the hardest is when the child comes for the first time, because they come from the streets. And it takes some time because we have to be patient with them." Most orphanages only allow children to stay until the age of 16, because they're just not enough room. sportsbook "I couldn't help but wonder," Terry says aloud, "what it would be like to leave everything you've known and be sent out into the world at 16. 16! Steven is 13. His anguish lies not in his own plight, three years from now, but in the fate of his 9 year old sister, sportsbook Elizabeth, and his 8 year old brother, Peter. They were all abandoned. He has shouldered the load of keeping them together, since he was 7.
"I can see in the eyes of the kids an anger, and loneliness, and a disappointment in life," Terry observes. http://www.enterbet.com "What a young age to be disappointed in life, before you've even had a change to live."

Biography
Lukyanenko was born in Karatau, then a part of Soviet Union, to Russian-Ukrainian father and Tatar mother.sportsbook After school he moved to Alma-Ata, entering Alma-Ata State Medical Institute in 1986 as a therapist. After graduation in 1992 he joined one of the Alma-Ata hospitals, specializing in child psychiatry, but soon abandoned practice, as already poor wages for physicians in Soviet times plummeted with the fall of the Soviet Union, making it virtually impossible to support a family. His writing,march madness which he started while still a student, had just started producing funds. During this time he became an active member in Russian fandom, visiting conventions and attending seminars all around the Soviet Union.

In 1993 he was appointed deputy editor in a local Science Fiction magazine, where he worked until 1996. This was one of the hardest periods of Sergei's life, as his family struggled to make ends meet. He often attributes the rather grim tones of his works at that period to those financial and personal hardships. However, by the mid-90's the situation improved drastically, and soon his growing popularity as a writer made frequent trips to now-foreign Russia increasingly difficult. Thus in 1996 Lukyanenko moved to Moscow, where he currently resides
Family Life
Sergei Lukyanenko met his future wife Sonya early in 1990, while still at university. He married her later the same year. She is a fellow psychologist, and she graduated from Kazakh state university. She now holds a Ph.D. degree in child psychology, and she taught psychology in Russian State University for the Humanities until 2003. Their first son Artemy Lukyanenko was born in February 2004. Their second son Daniil was born 23 November 2007.

They also kept pet mice (the first one was called Stremitelny - Quick, and the next pair was Mowlder and Scully) for some time, and their offspring were "awarded" to friends and fans. This became a running joke in Russian fandom. He still collects toy and souvenir mice figures.www.canadacasino.com They also own two Yorkshire Terriers named Busya and Varya.
