Russia Celebrates the Democratic Victory
- November 9, 2006 - For its part, the Russian press largely hailed the political acumen of the American people. "America Returns to Democracy," declared the headline of the daily Izvestiya; Moskovskiy Komsomolets greeted the election results saying, "Hangover: Democracy Has Won in America." Komsomol'skaya Pravda had the most novel take: "Hussein's Harsh Revenge: Americans Rebuff the White House Team That Caused Carnage in Iraq."
Russian policymakers offered a more muted, but no less divisive, take on the electoral results. Speaking to a Russian radio station, Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the international affairs committee in the lower house of the Russian parliament (the Duma), speculated that a victory for the Democrats might be the key to a more balanced foreign policy. For Russia, he noted, "conflicts between the White House and Congress are, in some ways, more comfortable than their 'complete and universal' brotherhood."
