Commenting article: Putin Too Denies Russian Plans to Revive Soviet Union

Russian President Vladimir Putin has dismissed the view that Russia's integration with post-Soviet states is part of a "re-Sovietization" program.

"It is strange for me to hear some of our colleagues abroad say that we are moving down the path of integration and that this is the revival of Russia's ambitions as the former Soviet Union," he said, as cited by RIA Novosti, adding, "What utter nonsense."

In an article published in The Financial Times last Thursday US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Russia is trying to recreate a new version of the Soviet Union under the guise of economic integration.

Come on now, Peter! If Vlad The Democrat says it is so, who are we mere kulaks to doubt the great man? ;)

" Hillary...said Russia is trying to recreate a new version of the Soviet Union under the guise of economic integration"-------and "Time will tell"
Peter replied.... Look, Peter, if to accept Russia's integration with post-Soviet states as "re-Sovietization", then European States integration is merely their"Sovietization"---without "re-", sure,--- that very time told, isn't it clear? Best.
