Now Russia is acting as a schoolyard bully. So the Russian flag is put down a band member's shorts in jest .... big deal. Is this really an issue for Moscow which once brought us Djugashvilli ???? If that is the way they feel there, that type of freedom of expression should be allowed. Freedom of speech, ya know ? In Texas stuffin the flag in yar pants is called " Eat my Shorts " meaning.... bugger off....

Life would be a lot nicer if the creeps who perform in these "bands" (meant as a gang, not a musical assembly) had a little class. Even if you don't like a country making fun of its flag is NOT a way to win friends and influence people. Although I am not a great fan of the Russian government (aka dictatorship) I think they are on the right track ith these imbeciles. Thhrow the book at these fools. They bring disgrace on all Americans.

They should have it launched in the first place, while the band was in Russia.
This is ridiculous now.

So Russia, in order to not allow US neo-Hitler Imperialism, has to upgrade and better the military.

US neo-Hitler Imperialistic wandering includes US companies attempting Neo-colonism of corporate trespassing.

Then Russian people have to build their own corporations, banks and increase small business operation and management, so that they have markets for themselves and other countries.
The reason is that Russia can supply lots of more gas and oil and energy products to Europe, Japan, and India and others is to generate more futuristic, better trade policy.

Therefore, Russian people can also do more commerce with Europe, Asia, and Latin America ( that would include South America like Brazil, Argentina) with enlarging the manufacturing sectors and base building.
As Germany and Japan and south Korea and some others can have investments into Russia, and they also have the know-how of industrial technology from factory and production facilities building to enhance production efficiency management,that will have Russians do more Industrial management and work extensive labor production as well for jobs.

This will give the enlargement of manufacturing general goods for the Russian people as the markets, and can supply back to Germany, Japan,and use India as the big markets for Russia.
The arts and movies business of Russian are good and they can use Russian language, as any people in Europe and elsewhere can ask for Russian movies to translate them to other languages view. By industrialization by building the core manufacturing base, with commercialization and commerce activities going for the future, Russian people can only make it to the needed direction in facing US neo-Hitler Imperialism.

BY engaging dialogue with the rest of Europe, Russian people can only resolve the question of Nato when there is no more Warsaw Pact, by telling Nato that it must not do the wrong things any more.

Russia does not have to go along with and cooperate with those calling axis-of evil labels, especially about North Korea etc., because US has not proved one thing in the example of Iraq by lying and with no true facts, in UN too.

The Russian people need to have the agenda management of their own to go forward in this new changing world when the world is uprising, as there is too much neo-Hitlerism (and CIA too) around, that they evils need to be degraded and watched out.

Russian people had better have their own ways of policies and work and cannot permit US neo-Hitler corporations colonism trespassing as well.

These are the new times as global people are having and facing with, that there are the needs to be knowing what best to do, as this is the new world.

Russia is acting very petty about a flag. Then again, the penalty for having a Ukrainian blue and yellow flag during the USSR years was 5 years hard labour. Russians and their flags are a big issue I figure. Just when you think Russia is getting with the program and getting modern, they do something stupid and petty.This just makes Russia look very, very stupid. This ranks with the attempted murder investigation Yanukovich ordered when a rotten egg was thrown at him while electioneering in west Ukraine..... also a stupid decision by Ukraine. They are Still soviets at heart over trheir it seems.

To punish a non Russian national in another country for a minor rock stage antic is a waste of resources and time. Truly a reflection of a dictator, flexing muscle in obedient countries. Excuse me while I puke... Isn't there something better for the Russian Sharia police to do?

Look dude, this guy is a representative of the west in Russia. How do you think what Russian people think about the west now? Actually Russians imagine a western person as a homosexual punk, which is stupid. Yea, this is what Russians think of western people now. So before to lecture Russians, think about it. You have no respect in Russia. No one takes your words about dictator seriously as a result.

For once I have to agree with Untermensch ( I hte to) but he is right (thistime). Russia (and Ukraine) should never have let those low-life punks into the country. If the U.S. had any guts they would refuse them re-entry. Unfortunately it won't happen becuse the constitution protects scum like them along with protecting regular citizens. Mybe one of them will make fun of Obama and then he can do a Putinesque action and have them sufer a mysterious fatal accident.

Russian government is always Soviet at heart which makes them do dumb things like having a love affair with Nazi Germany in the first two years of WWII. Soviets said their friendship with Nazi Germany was sealed in blood. The blood of thier victims.


This is something Russians should not be proud of.

Some of guys are so dense. Unbelievable.

Can't you see Putin is making fun of the Americans by bringing up charges against some silly band. He's mimicking the Americans and playing at the lowest level of political mud slinging.

This is Russia's response to Obama and his antics. "if you want to play stupid, we'll play stupid too".

Once again Obama looks like a fool.....

America used to be so good and now..... pity the fools that voted for him.

USSR did a good job, being a counter balance to USA.
Now the world needs another counter balance.
I`v been thiinking for long it will be China, yet, China doesn`t have such goal, it seems. So it sould be Russia. Russia should make a super power as a counter balance to USA.

No freedom of speech, no possibility to travel abroad. Does this mean you think life in the Soviet Union was better than in Putin's Russia? Is that why you've emigrated to America? LOL.
