"Dissent" deep freeze

September 4 2008

Published with enviable frequency of application of domestic opposition , were arguing for some unpleasant consequences can lead to "reckless" and "inexcusable," Russia's actions in South Ossetia, namely: a sharp deterioration in Russia's international position, complete political isolation, the deepening of the negative trends in Russian economy etc. - Reasonable cause confusion on the part of political scientists. Europe has a lot of shocking statements such as creating a broad anti-Russian coalition, but in the end was quite peaceful lady does not want to spoil relations with the next-door neighbor just because someone does not like to strengthen the position of Russia in the Caucasus. And the prospect of a harness with demoniac Saakashvili is unlikely to relish the leaders of European countries.

The stock market also has not undergone any changes. Reputable rating agency "Moody's" has announced that the war in South Ossetia did not affect the rating of Russia. "When you're dealing with such relations, is required much more time than took the events in Georgia, to the rating agency questioned the country's credit rating," - said the official representative of the agency.

Positive balance of opinion in regard to Russia was also observed in the world media. Not to mention the unconditional support of the Russian government by its citizens. In these circumstances, to speak at the position of the United States and its NATO allies was this madness. Even Eduard Limonov was not kept from being able to somehow enlighten his colleagues on the "Other Russia" and "National Assembly": "75 percent of the population, however, approve of Russia's actions in Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia for the simple reason that every nation wants to see their country winning, not losers, strong, not weak. Because isolation from the people even more dangerous than isolation from the international community, "- he writes. But it seems that the leaders of the OGF, the ATP RNDS etc. were their views on this matter. What? It became known yesterday.

European Parliament Committee on the budget proposed by the crisis in Georgia to freeze financial aid to Russia in 2009 in the amount of 60.5 million euros allocated in the framework of the EU Neighbourhood Policy and the targeting including supported human rights groups and nongovernmental organizations. "It will be a strong political signal," - he said.

What could be more! It suffices to recall the hysteria raised by human rights defenders at the reduction is almost 10 times the number of international organizations, grants are not taxable and not considered when imposing taxes on the income Russian grant recipients. In short, the potential economic sanctions hit primarily by grant-. As for the rest of the citizens of Russia who do not receive economic assistance from abroad, the majority of them even had no idea about most of these charities. Those who are on or otherwise turned to human rights defenders faced at best with indifference, at best - with the promise of "always do your problem."
