Typical Soviet/Pan-Russian/Putinista type of politics. Bully and buy what you can. Create a facade of a vote if necessary. The sacred duty of Russia chauvinism requires it, mostly to enrich the Russian oligarchs, though.

“Typical.......Democrats......type of politics. Bully and buy what you can.”

I modified that statement slightly to reflect reality right here in the U.S.
