If you are a proud member of the "TL; DR crowd", another, more recent SFR thread with graphics/memes on the nature of Putin/"Putinism" may be more up your alley.And yet another large thread deals with typical internet hoaxes, delusions and misconceptions concerning Putin/Russia, such as the undying "in Russia live Russians - the Putin's speech on Sharia and minorities" hoax: Refutation of myths and arguments of Putinphilia. Note: "[..] less genetic difference between dogs, wolves and coyotes than there is between the ethnic groups of the human species [...]". Charlatans and wishful thinkers."I have used Boas's study to fight what I guess could be considered racist approaches to anthropology," said Dr.Some of the most tyrannical, repressive and unfree societies were/are some of the most "diverse".
Probably the most notorious case: Arakcheev and Khudyakov case - Wikipedia - the evidence so absurd "the jury couldnt suppress a laugh during the trial." "The case got a special attention because the accused were fully acquitted twice of the claimed crimes in courts of law, only to have both verdicts revoked on formal grounds." Government forced-through sentence: "On 27 December 2007 Arakcheev and Khudyakov were sentenced to 17 and 15 years of imprisonment, respectively. It's interesting to compare the fate of those abused Slavic officers to Chechen terrorists involved in Budennovsk hospital siege and hostage crisis, an operation during the first Chechen war which took 100 lives of civilians.
Hostages released from the hospital at Budyonnovsk, from wikipedia For that event, several Chechens were sentenced for 11-13 years.
So, effectively, none of them have received a punishment higher than Arakcheev and Khudyakov.
Slavic refugees from Muslim terrorism in Chechnya, unlike Muslims, didn`t receive any help, although ethnic Checnen victims of the war received and continue to receive tens of thousands of dollars per person and countless millions are invested every year into "restoration" of Chechnya. Russian veterans of Chechen wars who are languishing in jails for ridiculous war crimes.
Many of them were declared non-guilty by non-controlled by govenrnment juries, but government kept declaring the verdict void and re-staging trials.
