    About that Top 5 Russian Economy

    Comrade @JPL , On behalf of his handlers at the Russian troll farm, informed us that the Russian Economy is TOP 5! Top 5 in the world dammit and we should know that.

    As we pointed out to him at the time the Russian "economy" is really just an resource extraction economy centered around one city (Moscow) and a sea of poverty.

    Today an update on how @JPL fellow Russian Citizens feel. Looks like that house of cards is collapsing.

    Russian protests. On Saturday, protests were held in multiple Russian cities, including St. Petersburg, Rostov-on-Don and Bryansk, but the epicenter of the movement was in Moscow. With estimates ranging from 20,000 demonstrators (according to Russian police) to 50,000 (according to protest organizers and monitoring groups), the sanctioned protests targeted a broad range of issues, from violence linked to recent crackdowns against anti-government demonstrations to the general economic malaise. Hundreds were arrested, though more than half of the arrests reportedly came after the demonstrations were over and a group of protesters was walking through Moscow’s city center. In our 2019 forecast, we predicted that “A decline in living standards will lead to social unrest in Russia.” It seems that forecast is coming to fruition.

    Great. If their economy is that poor they cannot really be a threat to a capitalist nation so we can save military and CIA dollars worrying about them. Too bad that didn't get out while kids were diving under wooden desk.
