Each passing day one is left with the impression that Vladimir Putin is the Donald Trump of Russia. I assume if I brushed a fly off his back, the cops would grab me and hustle my body off to a court, which, by definition, means the prosecutor is expected to win all cases. Last earth Russian navy seized a Greenpeace vessel which contained people protesting oil operations in Arctic regions.The ship flew the Dutch flag, but to Putinites any one entering Mother Russia without permission of you-know-who was an American spy.
Greenpeace took the dispute to the Permanent Court of Arbitration which is located in the Hague. The Court ruled in favor of Greenpeace but the Russian government made clear,”the Russian Federation did not participate in these proceedings” and thus it ruling is not binding in Russia. Where did this body get the idea they had any power in Mother Russia?
These people should be lucky to still be alive!
