Putin. What a joke.

Another chapter of the Cold War, which it didn’t go away, but morphed into what we have been experiencing over the past 3 decades.

They want to talk because economy is dying...

@PTownsend, a good point of view. This kind of headline feeds the myriad 'fake news' websites, and worst of all, Twitter, Facebook, and the like. Sorry, can't name the others, but only because I don't use what's mislabelled as 'social' media.

There's nothing 'social' about the Wild Wild West of the Internet. Yet. Wait until Australia's move against Google gets truly adopted by the Europeans, who started the process. Fake News is as fake new does. Sooner or later, karma comes into play. To whom much is given, much is required. Give before you get. Don't steal. Don't obfuscate.

Happy New Year, everyone. Today, the 24th of January where I live, is a Sunday. And my birthday. And I was born on a Sunday.

Weird.

Be nice, people. the last four years have been anything but.

Freedom and democracy had died long ago. Look at Venezuela, Syria, Belarus, Hong Kong etc in just recent years. Russia isn't worried because the world is powerless and cannot meddle into other countries directly. This is reality. No matter how many protests happen and how much the world disapprove, not much will change in Russia accept more crackdowns. Europe definitely not gonna get involve considering they just made many major deals with Russia. The world run on resources and money. As long there is profits to be made, there will always be suffering.

Navalny should not have gone back to Russia. He is fighting a losing battle once he is in their hands. I hope he and his family would be alright.

Putin must be really sweating over that imprisoned opposition leader. Also, he is worried that Pres. Biden might put a whipping on him like Pres. Obama did for 8 years! It would be bad for optics at the moment for him.

Imagine if Russia openly stated on January 6th that they support the Capitol demonstrators and they believe that the US should consider "dialog" with the fur hat horned dude

They don't need to say anything. They took the smarter route and influenced a mass of simpletons through social media for years, and now you have your own citizens turning against themselves while Russia sat back with popcorn watching the fireworks.

Putin is unhappy that his investment in trump has gone down the drain!!!

I feel sorry for the Russians , they need to choose between a criminal like Putin and a bigot like Navalny.

Gorbachov was their last decent leader, its been clowns and criminals after him.

Cut off Russia's access to US$, and freeze the funds in foreign accounts, real estate holdings, art. jewelry and other possessions of the politburo and Putin's oligarchs until the provenance of the funds used to make the purchases can be verified. These people have stolen the patrimony of the Russian people for themselves, and banked it in Malta, Cyprus, Gibralter, Panama and Macau.

US leave Russia alone - Russia leave the US alone. Leave sovereign states alone. This applies especially to the US, Russia (and its partner Iran), China and Turkey. Each of these nations has serious problems within its own borders. Each needs to focus first on the needs of its own citizens instead of putting its own people and the world at further risk trying to establish greater control outside its borders.

They’d know all about that, wouldn’t they?

But what they're really upset about is losing their asset in the White House...

But on the flip-side, they'll soon have an asset in Rikers Island...

Meanwhile the US openly funds and publicly backs far-right nationalists like Navalny in Russia.

Americans not only drive on the right, but think on the right, themselves brainwashed by decades of fascistic right-wing ideology emanating from government and the MM that has long permeated the security organs of the state, the military and police and spawned militias and conspiracy theorist know-nothings as American as mom's apple pie whose poisonous fruit appeared on full display January 6 for all the world to see.

Russians with their centuries-old inferiority complex vis-a-vis the West share with culturally insecure Americans the same self-delusions that afflict all self-styled "great powers", an arrogant belief and overweening pride in their exceptionalism that manifests itself in an aggressive, surly nationalism. Navalny is a typical product of Russia's inbred identity who would not feel at all out of place in Washington's swamp. That said, let's not be distracted by Navalny's faults nor take our eyes off the main goal: ridding Russia of its endemic virus of industrial-scale corruption by first removing its putrid Kremlin head as a first giant step for freedom.

Most Russians like Putin, but they also realize that he has enriched himself and don't like it.

The fact that there are protests is significant.

Still, I saw some coverage of police arresting a woman. They pushed the crowd aside to get to her way in the back. it looked like a targeted arrest.

At this point, Russia looks to be treating most protestors with respect, but that may turn at any time. I certainly hope it stays peaceful.

The embassy, in emailed comments, said such warnings were a"common and routine practice" of many countries' diplomatic missions.

Yep. Very common practice. If there were a march or demonstration announced or planned in London, Paris or Berlin, the respective embassies in this countries would issue such warning without the host countries thinking anything of it.

Russian is simply learning from the US. Good teachers they are, although short-sighted.

Russia never publicly backs protest movements in the US.

Meanwhile the US openly funds and publicly backs far-right nationalists like Navalny in Russia.
