Nice diversionary tactic.

Dimitri Medvedev, after following in his puppet master's footsteps in praising Stalin and his USSR for the past two years, has said something new:

"The Soviet Union was a very complicated state and if we speak honestly the regime that was built in the Soviet Union... cannot be called anything other than totalitarian. ...Unfortunately, this was a regime where elementary rights and freedoms were suppressed."
I'd give him a lot more credit, were it not that under his and his puppet master's leadership, Russia was heading directly down the same path. As it is, I suspect it's far more likely that Russia's current totalitarian leaders are trying to direct the world's attention away from what they're doing now.
