Russia faces a particularly nasty version of the global recession (at a minimum), and perhaps an economic "perfect storm."

Obama’s Red Mentor Praised Red Army
AIM Report | By Cliff Kincaid | April 30, 2008

Barack Obama’s childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the Moscow-controlled Communist Party USA, wrote a poem dedicated to the Soviet Red Army. “Smash on, victory-eating Red Army,” he declared. He also wrote poems attacking traditional Christianity and the work of Christian missionaries.

The “Red Army” poem goes beyond hoping for the communists to beat the Nazis in World War II and hails the Soviet revolution. It says:

Show the marveling multitudes
Americans, British, all your allied brothers
How strong you are
How great you are
How your young tree of new unity
Planted twenty-five years ago
Bears today the golden fruit of victory!

This guy was predicting US demise for 30+ years by now. It's just when times are bad, more Russians like to buy this “beautiful” fantasy...

The most hilarious was his interpretation of Dana Perino’s “no comment” as an indication of the White House being serious about his predictions.
