Recently, the EU competition commissioner, a Danish politician, has been pushing the investigation of Gazprom for anti-competitive behaviour. Gazprom is, as you may recall, the Russian natural gas monopoly controlled by Vladimir Putin and his cronies. It has been widely reported that the Putin gang use Gazprom as their own personal bank. In completely unrelated news, the Russian ambassador to Denmark threatened Denmark on Saturday with a nuclear attack.
This leads me to ask a question of all the Putin aficionados out there: do you still think Putin is the standard bearer of Western civilization?
But I guess he makes up for it by banning gay pride parades on Moscow. Or something.
