Anne Applebaum asks, “What Are the Russians Buying?”
Anne is being alarmist. I’ve been a Russophile a LONG time, even got a BA in it. I view this graft as a good thing, oddly. It means they are engaging the world, rather than shrink from it. We in the West need to have Russia integrated and interoperative, especially since the practitioners of RadIslam have it in for any and all things Western. One more friend, hell, aquaintance, cannot be a bad thing.
