    V. Volodin, Chair of Russian Duma, is greeted by Vương Đình Huệ, Chair of Vietnam National Assembly.

    Volodin planned to visit Vietnam on June, but the trip was delayed due to unexpected circumstances. Now with all thing settled he resumes the visit.

    A few days ago the German President (Steinmeier, the one that helped to fool Yanukovitsch) was in the same neighborhood.
    He had to wait 1,5 hours in his plane until someone apperaed to greet him. lol1

    I suspect that this will be the basis of much of Russian foreign policy in the future. Surprised Algeria and maybe Egypt are not there.

    Vladimir Putin wished Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to:

    ✔ President of Abkhazia Aslan Bzhania
    ✔ President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev
    ✔ President of Armenia Vahagn Khachaturyan and Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan
    ✔ President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko
    ✔ President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev
    ✔ President of Kyrgyzstan Sadyr Japarov
    ✔ President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon
    ✔ President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov and Chairman of the People's Council of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov
    ✔ President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev
    ✔ President of South Ossetia Alan Gagloev
    ✔ President of Bolivia Luis Arce
    ✔ President of Brazil Lula da Silva
    ✔ Premiere of Hungary by Viktor Orbán
    ✔ President of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro
    ✔ President of Vietnam Vo Van Thuong and Secretary General of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Trong
    ✔ President of India Droupadi Murmu and Prime Minister Narendra Modi
    ✔ Chinese President Xi Jinping
    ✔ President of Cuba Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez and Army General Raul Castro
    ✔President of Laos Thongloun Sisoulith
    ✔ President of Nicaragua Daniel Ortega
    ✔ President of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic
    ✔ Syrian President Bashar al-Assad
    ✔ President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan
    ✔ President of South Africa Cyril Ramaphosa
    In addition, Vladimir Putin congratulated the Pope, Robert Kocharyan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, Serzh Sargsyan, Gerhard Schröder and Nicolas Sarkozy on Christmas and the upcoming New Year.

    The leaders of unfriendly countries did not receive congratulations from the Russian President.

    ⭐ Now we are clear about who is on his "good" list

    Medvedev was more pro west than Putin when he got elected to office and the west just crapped all over him...

    He is a product of their abuse... I think he would be less calm and calculating as Putin which would make him a bit more dangerous in the top job now.

    Remember when Georgia attacked South Ossetia during the opening ceremony of the olympic games in China... clearly hoping to complete their attack and occupation before anyone noticed... obviously you remember that because the Olympic committee ban nations from their events when they violate the peace message of the world coming together in sport that is the Olympics.

    It was a fascinating study for someone old enough to remember Twisted Evil
    There was an absolute silence in ALL western shitstream. No news. No coverage. Nothing.
    Tchinvali was bombed with Grad salvos for 24h already, with all the Jewish "district" leveled. If we can call a "district" name to a square 3x3 houses, but the city itself is rather small.
    As long as Russkie tanks run out of a tunnel.
    And it started!
    "Russia invaded Georgia!"
    They have all started to yap 24/7, all day long, how "ebil Russkie are raping tiny Georgia".
    Shit was clearly prepaid and preordered, including professional coverage with actors and staged scenes on the ground.
    It is fukin unbelievable that mythical they repeat the same scenarios all across the globe, yet there are people too blind to spot that.
    I remember a coverage of some old lady lying in front of a destroyed building. It was on the covers of all western newspapers. Only nobody dared to mention, that the house was blasted by a secondary explosion of ammunition warehouse Russkie bombed, because located at the outskirts of a military base.

    The reclamation of Alaska is most likely on the agenda. Tho only real question is when and how.

    I think it would also only be fair for the pindos to pay interest with a large amount of their territory.

    Alaska is inhabitated by Americans and Americans will not vote to become a part of Russia.

    It is pretty bloody obvious that the US and the west has never done anything fair and square.

    I am not aware of all the details of what happened back then, perhaps now might be a good time to reevaluate the terms of the agreement.

    Hell, the way your politicians manage YOUR tax money in 10 years time you might be needing to sell off some land to cover your debt obligations... who would accept your money by then?

    Tell them they can keep their jobs and they will be fine.

    Tell them their new income tax rate and that healthcare and education prices are going to change, and also that support for families means this and that... and that the federal government of the US will be asked to leave.

    I suspect not everyone is going to get as upset as you might think... especially if the wealth of the resources from the region start getting spent on the region to develop. Of course European airlines who stop off in Anchorage to fly around Russian air space are going to be pissed off.

    Not sure what are you even talk about.
    Alaska's importance to Russia can be considered only as a mainstay for claims to Arctica.
    Russkie have much easier potential gain - it is Spitsbergen.
    Svalbard Accords of 1925 grant its territory to Norway, but gives full access to it for every signatory of the accord. Every single one of the few dozen countries that signed, has the right to settle on the archipelago and unrestricted access to its economic potential.
    It was the Soviet Union that drilled it empty of coal for decades.
    In last years, Norway started to push the agenda and complicate things in the area. Some of those actions - like installing military installations there - are a clear breach of the accord. The same applies to pushing the fishermen out of single-sided claimed EEZ. And the same applies to establishing "natural parks" on most of the habituated area to avoid settlements there.
    So if Norway is acting in clear opposition to the accord, it gives some legal grounds to undermine it.
    What would be easier to get?
    Alaska, that has nothing to do with Russia for 150 years, and was never habituated by the Russians in any other way rather than fur outposts? Belonging to the USA?
    or
    Spitsbergen, where Soviet times Russkie settlements still stand, with the Russian population habitating those, while Norway is restricting the legally gained agreements of the act that gave them those lands?

    It is totally irrelevant, and you are a warmonger with serious issues understanding the world that surrounds you.
    I would call that being blown off from reality.
    That makes you unfit for any sane discussion I guess.

    Fake news.
    The real document is just a definition of the recipient of a subsidy from the budget for searching for information about Russian (as well as Soviet and Russian Empire-era) property abroad. This process has been going on for a long time - Russia is looking for illegally seized Russian assets and claims their rights to them. Not a word about Alaska or the illegality of its sale.

    Because it was sold legally.
    Russia tried to sell it multiple times, as it was a costly asset. It was the US who was not much interested for a while, having more important things to do, like a civil war for example Laughing
