Russia is not perfect, but they are definitely no longer a communist country.
Keep thinking that.
Only when they ban the CPRF and remove “former” communists from positions of power will I start to be convinced of that when it comes to Russia.
And those who think that way about Red China turn out to be communist-leaning themselves. Or so I’ve discovered.
#6. Russia is still a communist/Marxist “power dominated” country but they added in the Russian Mafia as their thugs in drugs, smuggling, assassinations, “honey traps”, etc. After all, “ex-KGB killers” need jobs too.
Putin is just smarter than his predecessors, Yeltsin and Gorbachev, but his blood runs “KGB RED”.
