THE …MOSCOW OF THE SOUTH RADIO HOUR !

August 20, 2008 by onair

THE MOSCOW OF THE SOUTH RADIO HOUR Вопрос об исключении России из «Большой восьмерки» не более чем политический шантаж – неумелый и грубый. Если нас всё же исключат, то этот клуб станет ущербным и, в отдаленной перспективе, будет напоминать ГУАМ. Эффективных санкций против России Запад предпринять не может – тем более, что никакого повода для них Россия не давала

Во вторник российские демократы выразили свою консолидированную позицию по поводу грузино-югоосетинского конфликта. Заявление от имени «координационной группы по созыву общероссийского съезда демократических сил», опубликованное на одном из оппозиционных веб-сайтов, настолько красноречиво, что не нуждается в дополнительных комментариях. Обозреватель Правды.Ру даже без особого удивления обнаружил, что оно состоит практически из прямых цитат Кондолизы Райс, президента Эстонии и других близких друзей Михаила Саакашвили.
