2. The Russian Mafiosi are inter-ethnic and wide-spread.

The Chechen Mafia is probably the second most powerful (or dangerous) gang in the FSU. Govts change hands, but the mobsters remain.

Here's some info from wiki, Irish Dem:

4. Jebus. What a list. Rachel Maddow says Russia isn't a country.

It is a big piece of land ruled by the Russian mob.

Thanks!

7. Zelensky is using....

.... his new found clout to try and drag Ukraine into the modern world of liberal democracies. If he does that AND beats Russia, he'll be founding father a new, modern, European Ukraine.

8. Excellent!

Albeit rather bad timing with a war going on!

All I can say is, I wish we could get rid of the treasonous SOB’s in our FBI, Secret Service, etc.

And when are we going to be rid of DeJoy? Or is that not a big thing anymore?
