Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yeah, I don't think Russia is remotely socialist these days.  It's really quite fascist -- private ownership but heavily directed by a hyper-nationalistic authoritarian government.

I don't think oligarchy really covers it well, because the oligarchs don't seem to exercise a whole lot of power.  It's just the Putin Show.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
