Russia designates Voice of America, Radio Liberty “foreign agents”

Russia’s justice ministry on Tuesday designated nine U.S. media outlets, including the Voice Of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and seven other Russian-language subsidiaries as “foreign agents,” subject to sanctions, following a bill signed into law by President Vladimir Putin last month.
Russian officials called the action a :symmetrical response” to the US Justice Department’s demand that RT (Russia Today) register as a foreign agent because of its alleged role in interfering in US affairs and the 2016 presidential election.

      Hey, you ignorant slave of the capitalists ideology! Soviet democracy is the most perfect political system in which the rule of the population by directly elected soviets councils is exercised. The councils are directly responsible to their electors and are bound by their instructions from the great President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin! By contrast, the bad and imperialistic Amerika pretends is democratic. What a shame!

    “Hey, you ignorant slave of the capitalists ideology!”

    @”Ivan Ivanovich Ivanov, russian and proud of it”,

    Thanks for the compliment. In fact, your remark, coming from someone who claims to be a true Rushkie, makes me even more honored to be described in those terms!

    As for the other part of your comment quoted below:

    ” Soviet democracy is the most perfect political system in which the rule of the population by directly elected soviets councils is exercised. The councils are directly responsible to their electors and are bound by their instructions from the great President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin———-”

    Just one more thing to note:
    Were you aware that Assad’s government (as well as his dad’s government) in Syria was modeled based exactly on the Soviet government?
    Notice how “great” the people of Syria have had it all these years!
