  • What do you want to see in the Russia section?

    More news of any sort? Transcripts of speeches? Girls in uniforms? Or..?

    I'd like to see more transcripts of speeches-we get a lot of news anyway but this would provide some "direct from the source" stuff.

    Oh girls in uniforms yes always.

      Anything on the Russian military - information on units, doctrine, procurement, operations, training etc.

          All of the above. Material, written as objectively as possible, trends and forecasts. Also historical items ,where not available elsewhere, would be very welcome. One contributor to this forum lately came up with some magnificent photographs of the Tsarist armed forces- that sort of thing.

            But this section is in the Current Events section and described as Post USSR Russia!! Surely you don't suggest breaking the rules?

              Perish the thought !

              But if a specialised "Russia Section" is envisaged along the lines that seems to be indicated,: that's what I would like to see included.

                The USSR and pre-modern Russian history fit pretty well in the existing historical sections IMO. OTOH I find that few members and very few Americans realize how active modern Russia is the global markets and world diplomacy.

                Having said that, if you have an interesting idea for a thread, go with it. If you don't get much interest here, we can always move it to busier section for you.

                  Try this:

                  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/noam-c...m_hp_ref=world

                  Here Noam Chomsky describes the background fifty years ago in the Cuban missile crisis. What is relevant to modern times is the view of Russia (then USSR) of NATO missiles on Turkish soil once again. Russia still has the same attitude towards missiles in Turkey. We may well see a sharp cooling of relations between Turkey and Russia, while this Syrian Civil War unfolds. This could become as severe as Turkey closing the Straits to Russian shipping. Based on the background, the Syrian Civil War could blow up into other areas.

                    A large part of the Turkish GNP is based on revenue from Russians. Russia is also the largest importer to Turkey. Relationships like that are more important in the long run than short term disagreements like missile defense and Syrian conflicts.

                        What do you guys think of having small threads joined into a bigger thread labelled for example "Defence", "Crime and Punishment" and "Human Rights"? Naturally threads that receives a lot of responses would be left as they are.

                          Any more news sites you want news from?

                          How is it with ITAR- Tass, is it allowed to quote parts of them and refer to the original source?

                            Not sure how Russian copyright law works but from ACG's perspective that should be sufficient. Hopefully one of our Russian members can provide more specifics.

                              Why don't we discuss the Russian Civil War?

                              It started with the escape of Generals Anton Denikin and Mikhail Alexeev from the prison into which the Bolsheviki had confined them. They fled to the lands of the Cossacks where they would be safe. Then Lavr Kornilov organized a White Russian Army. Field Marshall Mannerheim fought for the independence of Finland, and the the war started. It was uncoordinated so it failed, but under wise direction would have succeeded. *ducks from the missiles from bolsheviki fans*
