It's so sad.
In connection with the appearance the article of the U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul on the Russian LJ's site - USAID Leaves a Remarkable Legacy of Achievements, I invite to evaluate the veracity of the Yuri Panchul's words: “the State Department supported a lot of organizations in Russia that acted as a sort of a pseudo-pro-American religious sect, alienating the wast majority of people”, to all who participated in the previous discussion - “Moscow forces U.S. to close down its aid mission in Russia”.
The attitude of Russians to the event - in the comments to the post.
My opinion as per Rule #8 of this community:
- The Russia is the authoritarian state where the authority takes decisions not in favor of the people
- Actions of the Russian authorities have added the growing tension between the government and the opposition. And it looks like no way to avoid a violent change of the government because there are no conditions for freedom of expression and free election
- Putin has shown the clear step to the direction of isolation from the western world
- If Putin doesn't choose America as a partner he will look for links with China
- Barack Obama's "reset" policy with Russia failed but I appreciate deeply the efforts of the U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul
- The Obama administration does not understand that making concessions under Putin's pressure will not strengthen the bond of friendship. This is a demonstration of false politeness. It only can be assessed by the modern Russian authority like the indication of provocative weakness. Putin is not looking for friends
- Romney was right with ...Russia, this is, without question, our number one geopolitical foe...
- Yuri Panchul described the USAID's activities in Russia incorrectly
