    Russia is beyond parody. They are like petulant children (but with nukes). Can’t face up to the realities of their past, re-writing history, paranoid with a persecution complex (OK – they did get the rough end of the pinapple in 1941+ but they do overdo the “we wus robbed” stuff), emasculated judiciary, heavily restricted press/media. Hitler’s mindset just moved East after the war and is still thriving under Putin and his glove puppet. They’ll be invading Poland within 10 years…..
