Obegone is taking notes.
Russia is taking the same measures to protect its national interest as the US should have taken.
It is now treasonous for a Russian government worker to go to a foreign country and be critical of the Russian rulers.
Where have I seen that type of activity lately from Americans?
Jon Caray; The Hildabeeste; Obamugabe in Germany and Egypt.
The law is aimed at UN and foreign NGO subversion and insurrection very similar in Russia as it is in the US.
Putin is Russian, and it would be logical to see him take actions to protect RUSSIAN interests. He has no duty to protect Americans or anybody else, but his enforcement against Russian traitors is liable to expose their American partners.
Putin supports Obama because Russia is a competitor to America, and Putin wants the weakest possible leader for the competition.
