WikiLeaked cable from Bob Gates: “Russian democracy has disappeared” | The Cable


With ex-KGB boss Putin in charge of things, we really would be naive to believe differently. He is huge on the "cult of personality" thing, using television and video to enhance his image at home and abroad...but under everything, he remains an apparatchik who would be as much at home under the old Soviet oligarchy as he is under the present system.

The only thing that ever changes about Russia are the players in charge.
