    Hey swede! I agree totally with your assessment. Toooooo much toooo soon isn't good either. Sure their was a loss of some freedoms under Putin, but the country is doing better than is was before he took office. Gotta fly!!!!!

    Hello Smoks and Swede!

    I Hope all is Well with both of you!

    I am Glad to hear Smoks is so far kind of maybe enjoying his vacation in the Ukraine!! Sorry about option B maybe turning into another version of the Titanic voyage, Humm, Too Bad!! Well Smoks, do not forget-alot of photo's, Hehehe! Well, my view's re politic's are of course mine and numerous people I know and also people I chat on line with which are by the way not only from America but other countries too! I simply see Russia as a growing Democracy and this will take time for the Peoples Government to adjust However every article I have read that has been posted by a Russian National expresses the same view's and opinion's, they all want Democracy!!!! I have watched the news media from many sources these past few day's and when I see People exercising thier Freedom of Thought's and Speech being arrested and Harassed this tell's me alot about a countries back bone and how thier Government Act's / React's to various Freedom's!! Well, we will see what the PP in Russia does as time Passes and again I say I Hope he will act in Good Faith and Ethic's for all of the Russian People, not simply the Political Elite!!!
    Humm, we shall see-Action's alway's speak louder than Word's!!

    Hi Tone,

    Rome wasn't build in one day. Remember the poor guy in Russia has a lot of powerful groups against him. Both the remnants of the socialists/communists (it's far from completely dead yet), the new capitalist bosses (who also are influential), the maffia/former KGB constallation, the lack of money and the unbelievable corruption and inefficiency in the administration, and not least the average FSU person's belief, that everybody will have a swimmingpool very soon. (Saw that in Poland. People started getting really greedy a year or two after
    the fall of Sovjet).

    It's a difficult position to work from. And ofcourse the western attitude doesn't help very much. The east is usually seen as a place, where you can grab.

    Hi Swede!

    I understand all of this, a person would have to be closed minded or an idiot to not know what you have pointed out! Of course Rome was not built in a day, Hehe, my ancestor's are from Italy on my Father's side and my Mother's side from Germany, England and Ireland!! Well, I am second generation American and my Son therefor is third and my Grandson is fourth, Humm, many of American's are from another country's who Wished to Live a better life and in freedom, even though freedom has many prices to pay!! So I also say that America was not built in a Day either but as young as America is as a society it work's, not perfectly, but what country is or can say it can compare? I still say that I Admire and Respect Deeply the Russian People and Swede you are correct that the various Politican's have thier work in front of them and True Democracy will not be easliy acheieved, Never has been because No Dicatorial or Tyranical Regime want's Democracy, they Fear it to be simple and factual!! Sooo, do I have a short cure to the World's problem's, Especialy in FSU? No, I do not and simply because the People have to take back thier countries and thier government's and thru Democracy govern them selves but this takes time and alot of courage and commitment!! I mean look at America for example, we are the Freeist County in this World yet our government is all screwed up!! So, even here in America we have alot to do to get our country back and on it's intended course, Simply said yet not easily done!!!![V]

    I must admit, that I also am looking forward to a lot of information, when PeopleS comes back. It seems, that the situation changes quickly both concerning scamming and the culture in FSU.

    I saw this explosive change in Poland in the nineties, both at the individual level and economically. The amount of money being poured into FSU and satellite states was impressive, and once the traditon of stuffing your own pockets with such money was damped a bit, the wheels started turning. Not always to the better as some of the less attractive parts of western economy are taking over. So PeopleS, we're waiting.
