 Italian Vector of the Russian Politics
Russian - Italian relations were always very intensive.
But for the Russians the situation with Italy is different - first of all, the relations between Moscow and Rome is not of "seller-buyer" type, as they are with Berlin and Paris.

 New Balkan Politics - Issue 3
A comparison of Russian policies towards the two Balkan states Yugoslavia and Bulgaria, shows, to what extent a policy that was directed specifically to the region found itself in a cul-de-sac in the past decade due to the persistence of Great Power thinking and the economic crisis of the country.
By this action, which was cheered as a heroic deed in the Russian press, the soldiers had redeemed the humiliation, that the Nato air strikes had inflicted on the political-psychological feelings of the Russian population.
Hence, beyond Russian symbolic policy in former Yugoslavia, the specific role of Southeastern Europe was in the first place based on its economic and transport-geographic significance for exports to and transit through the countries of Southeastern Europe towards the tempting markets of the West.

 CNN--InDepth: Russia Election - Russia, vodka and politics
To comprehend the risks of coming between a Russian and his vodka, you have to understand that what in Russian means "little water" or "dear water" is not just the national drink.
According to preeminent Russian scholar Bruce Lincoln, who has lived in Russia, written at least 12 books on the subject and is distinguished research professor emeritus at Northern Illinois University, the Russian word "zaploi" means roughly, "I was so drunk last night I couldn't remember a thing." And that is admirable in some circles.
The last Russian leader to interfere with his countrymen's drinking habits was former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, whose well-intentioned attempt in the 1980s to reduce alcoholism was a political disaster.

The political upheaval that plagues Russia as the millennium draws to a close is reason enough for new, updated teaching materials.
But it is not only Russia’s political fabric that has undergone change; the events of the 1990s have transformed virtually every aspect of the language of public discourse.
Once “stable” and easy to master, the language of television news has seen a massive influx of vocabulary, a disappearance of easy-to-understand boilerplate, sloppier diction on the part of anchors, and even a speed-up of delivery rate (doubled from an average of four syllables per second in the 1980s).

 Politics of Russia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In theory, the President of Russia is head of state, and of a pluriform multi-party system with executive power exercised by the government, headed by the Prime Minister, who is appointed by the President by the parliament's approbation.
Legislative power is vested in the two chambers of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, while the President and the government issue numerous legally binding by-laws.
However, pundits in Russia believed this not to be due to the president's displeasure with the government, but with Mikhail Kasyanov himself, as the Russian constitution does not allow the prime minister to be removed without firing the whole cabinet.

He added that, as it did in Ukraine, U.S. politicians intend to finance "subversive organizations" because "they dislike the political system existing in Russia." "It is no secret that so-called nongovernmental organizations are now openly financed not only by foundations and suspicious private individuals with very peculiar political views," Leontev wrote.

 American Russian Law Institute
The transitional period from communist doctrines and totalitarism to diametrically different political and legal, social and economic realities is very complicating and contradicting.
The main direction of legal reform in Russian Federation may be defined as follows: in philosophy and sociology - doctrines of natural and inalienable human rights; in economics and politics - restriction of expansion of state by law; in law and state - separation of powers, constitutionalism, superiority of law.
It is obvious that the process of establishing new legislation in Russia is complicated by the fact that the world practice does not know precedents of such a large scale replacement of one legal system by the diametrically different one.
