Putin's Option Is Either To Become China's Satellite Or Muslim's Younger Partner

Historian and professor Andrei Zubov at the Moscow
university of international relations, says,
the annexation of Crimea was the return to the Soviet
Unlike Yeltsin and Gorbachov, Putin has a Soviet
mindset. Accordingly, he can instruct foreign peoples
how to live and which unions to join.
Putin's referendum in Crimea was an utter
falsification. As Zubov wrote his Ph.D. and doctoral
dissertations on elections, he says the results of the
Crimean one were invented by its organizers.
The turnout cannot be larger than 75-78% and 90% of
voters cannot support a single issue whereas in the
Crimean "referendum" 95.5% of voters supported Crimean
independence from Ukraine.
No wonder the Ukrainians realized that their Russian
neighbor, whom they treated well in general, stole one
of the rooms in their apartment when they were
There were mistakes in Russia's and Ukraine's
policies, with the largest one lying on the fact that
both countries failed to carry out de-Sovietization
The Soviet mentality, still existent in Crimea and
Eastern Ukraine, had a huge effect on how the
situation developed there.
Putin is trying to replace the Soviet ideology with
the nationalist one.
The way Russia is acting now, especially in the wake
of Crimea, will be cold-shouldered by all countries.
Putin's prospect is either to become China's satellite
or a junior partner of the Muslim south.
Earlier, Prof. Andrei Zubov condemned Russia's
annexation of Crimea.
''Russia is banana republic with feudal pyramid of
power'', Moscow writer says
A Moscow writer Dmitry Glukhovskiy told Polish media
"No, Russia is not a hell. Russia is still the same
poor country oppressed by its rulers. What they do,
how they exercise power, can be called Develism, if
not directly Satanism (in 2004, a Moscow writer called
his country Satanic Russia in memoirs about his stay
in Putin's Gulag - KC). This is when they do not trust
people. And when people trust the authorities, and the
authorities very cleverly use of media, including the
Internet - this is also demonic. The way they seduce
the masses is called Machiavellianism.
Russia is, is completely different from what it claims
to be (Kavkaz Center has for a long written, for
example, that Orthodoxy in Russia, the Russian
Orthodox Church, is Devilry of Satan-worshipers,
poorly disguised as Christianity - KC)
Russia is a banana republic with a distinct feudal
pyramid of power - we have a monarch, dukes, barons
... Everyone lives from those below him in the
hierarchy than himself. Everyone takes bribes which
then move higher within the pyramid....
