    What does it matter? Why the fixation on how Russia is self-destructing? Is there any doubt that the leadership of the country is an utterly corrupt oligarchy? What’s more significant, IMHO, is the closing sentence. Pardon the recording, but the simple fact is that, as this post so eloquently demonstrates, the only effect of sanctions has been to impose misery on the populace and increase nationalism. Seems to me that to President-elect understands this quite well.

      Seriously, why do we care if some Russians are stealing from other Russians?
