Just recently my local news has announced
Quote:I was just wondering what Soviet republic if giving it up? I know its defenitly not Russia , maybe Georgia or something , someone please reply

Can anyone have it? I wouldn't mind some of that.
It appears to be Belarus.
My guess is they've cut a deal with Mattel to supply endless nuclear energy to Barbie microwaves the world over.
Quote:It sounds to me like they should probably be hanging on to this stuff if this is the way they are regarded. They're only going to make it easier for their enemies than it already is - unless they're in the middle of some Gorbachev style paroxysm of thinking the West only wants to make friends. Surely they're aware enough of what happened to the rest of their neighbourhood.
Don't worry comrade Shigalyov. As long as Lukashenko is president, Belarus will never have a Gorbachev-like attitude toward the West. Whatever gestures he makes toward the West are part of the game of geopolitics, and rest assured that Batka is at heart pro-Russian forever (pro-Russian in the sense that Belarusians and Russians are one people, united by history and blood, not in the sense that he appreciates the present government of Russia, which he certainly does not). Playing for European support is part of his attempt to retain power in the face of the Russian leadership's hostility, which has been growing to absurd extremes in the last months.

As far as I know, Ukraine gave all the nuclear material it got from several USSR facilities on it's territory to Russia for disposal in 1994-1995.

Amusing how Lukashenko is the great dictator for providing for his citizens, and Sashkavilla is the defender of democracy when bombing Ossetians.
Soviet America is Free America!
Under communism, there is no freedom; you are not free to live in poverty, be homeless, to be without an education, to starve, or to be without a job
