      Every court in Russia is a kangaroo court. Guilt is presumed and it is up to the accused to prove innocence. That’s the way their “justice” system has always worked.

      It explains why mentally Russians are still medieval serfs willing to do their master’s bidding. If even that basic tenet isn’t there then there are no human rights in Russia, and never have been.

  5. Many people call what is happening in Russia – fascism. !

    1. I would say it is a tragedy, but with them having suffered the loss of over 20million lives in war against fascism, only to now so fundamentally embrace the principles of fascism. It goes far, far beyond mere tragedy. There is probably no word currently in use in any language to describe it, the only thing that would come close is the name of the nation.
      What Russia is doing is very much Russian.

    Russia goes back into the closet….So sad. When will it allow it’s great people to be themselves and stop trying to control everything. Sad Russian Politicians – Trust your people.
