Russian is a hard language but not impossible and, unlike Chinese or Vietnamese, you don’t have to be able to sing to speak Russian.

It's getting harder to see how some of what Russia is doing fits into theories about Putin.
If he intervenes to protect Christians in Syria but doesn't protect Assad as well it's going to trigger a whole new wave of Bestselling Christ Surrenders & Evacuates His Troops books but it's sure not going to fit the conspiracy theories about Putin and the Russian Orthodox Church very well.
