    “Woman reporter: Should we introduce sanctions in response? [to the prohibition on the entry of Russian males to Ukraine.] Zhirinovsky: What? Quickly then. No, we shouldn’t. You’re all blood-thirsty. There will be a film about you, ‘The Furies of Maidan,’ f**k. You all have uterine delirium, you women of Maidan. If it weren’t for this uterine delirium, there wouldn’t be any Maidan. Look at that fool Iryna Faraon. She’s spouting hatred toward Russians. You think she hates Russians? She adores them!

    MOSCOW, Nov 4: Barack Obama is the “American Gorbachev” who will ultimately destroy the United States, militant Russian nationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky said on Tuesday. Credited in the West for leading the former Soviet Union away from Cold War confrontation, Mikhail Gorbachev, now 77, is vilified by many at home for presiding over the collapse of the Soviet Union and ushering in harsh economic reforms. “Obama, he is the American Gorbachev, he will destroy America, it will not be rebuilt,” Zhirinovsky said at a meeting of the ultra-nationalist party he founded, according to Russian news agency Interfax. Zhirinovsky, a 62-year old...

    The past two years witnessed a welcome sensitization of the Russian public towards skinhead attacks and ultra-nationalist propaganda. In view of escalating violent attacks and other actions against foreigners, the debate on Russian fascism is currently experiencing a new high in the Russian media. There was a similar debate in the mid-1990s, when the confrontation between President Boris Yeltsin and the “intransigent opposition,” a state of near-civil war in Moscow, the ascent of Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the appearance of neo-Nazi parties, and the first Chechen war, gave rise to the notion of a “Weimar Russia.” Even though this construct has made...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin received political party leaders in his Novo-Ogarevo residence yesterday. He united them into a pool with which he will cooperate and meet on a regular basis. Kommersant’s special correspondent Andrei Kolesnikov believes that the president has thus closed the list of parties open to dialogue with him. Russian President Vladimir Putin met with political party leaders yesterday. Many of them did not hope to see the president in person, for they did not overpass the 5% barrier during last parliamentary elections, did not get into the State Duma, and thus were not granted meetings with Putin....

    MOSCOW, November 10 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's flamboyant ultranationalist lawmaker, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, proposed Friday that Russia should sever diplomatic ties with Estonia, its former Soviet ally in the Baltic Region. "With respect to Estonia, we should sever diplomatic relations and announce an economic blockade," said Zhirinovsky, who is deputy speaker of the State Duma, the lower house of parliament. His remarks came following the Baltic state's passage on a first reading Thursday of a bill allowing the demolition of monuments to Soviet troops who died fighting Nazi forces in the Baltic republic in WWII, but who are branded as 'invaders'...

    The Jewish side of the family By Yossi Melman It looks like an everyday scene in a cemetery. A man who is no longer young stands, mute and weeping, at his father's grave. This particular scene, however, was fraught with historic irony. The son is Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the deputy speaker of the Russian State Duma (the lower house of the Russian parliament) and the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party, the third largest in the country. Zhirinovsky, an anti-Semitic nationalist, who has expressed esteem for Hitler, proposed that Russia offer asylum to Yasser Arafat and supported Saddam Hussein, found his...

This is because she is a single woman who has no children Condoleezza Rice, the US Secretary of State, openly criticized the Russian government in connection with the gas conflict with Ukraine. Ms. Rice used quite a trivial technique of psychological pressure, which is mostly practiced in the field of education. According to Condoleezza Rice, Russia's actions towards Ukraine did not characterize it as a respectable member of the Group of Eight. The statement from the high-ranking US official sounded...

    Moscow ( - Russian prosecutors have asked the Swiss government to extradite Moscow's former top nuclear official to face criminal charges, in what is widely seen as a bid to prevent him from being sent to the U.S. instead. Former Atomic Energy Minister Yevgeny Adamov was arrested in Switzerland early this month in response to a request by the U.S. Justice Department. He is accused of embezzling up to $9 million provided by the U.S. Energy Department for Russia to improve security at its nuclear facilities. Some Russian politicians have expressed suspicions that the real reason the U.S. wants access...

    Saddam's Bought Russians By Jed Babbin Published 5/16/2005 12:16:42 AM Russia's stubborn pro-Saddam stance in the UN Security Council brought Vladimir Putin's party and political machine enormous financial rewards in the form of bribe money coming from the UN Oil for Food Program, according to two detailed reports being released today by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (PSI). Those bribes have fueled Putin's drive to restore authoritarian government in Russia. It is more than just corruption. Senate investigators say Saddam's penetration of the Russian political system was so deep that it could -- and did -- cause the passage...

    Saddam Hussein's government provided senior Russian officials with oil rights worth millions of dollars under the oil-for-food program in an effort to lift U.N. sanctions against Iraq, according to a U.S. Senate Committee report released on Monday. The oil allocations were "compensation for support," Vice President Taha Yasin Ramadan told the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. The report, based on documents as well as interviews with Ramadan and Tareq Aziz, the former deputy prime minister, pointed to Alexander Voloshin, former chief of staff to President Vladimir Putin in the Russian Presidential Council, and ultranationalist parliamentarian Vladimir Zhirinovsky.
