  1. Such cuts damage the society as a whole, and the military will not whether the cuts very well. When the roads go to pieces and the economy continues to slump, the cuts will engender the need for more and larger cuts. It is a vicious cycle that will take Russia into the sewer, where it belongs.

  2. “Russia launches total budget cuts: they will save on roads and science”

    The reasons are simple; A) It is more important to set aside money to kill Ukrainians and to destroy their culture and their land. B) Kleptomania is running rampant in a country that knows it’s going down the shitter. C) Sanctions are “not” working. Lol!

    • But these self sanctions are working, lol. This is a sign of desperation. Putler is on his last gasp and they are not prepared to maintain occupations through the winter. I would predict he won’t make it until Christmas.

  3. Russia now has no car industry to speak of, so Russians won’t need roads. Russia never makes anything, so has no need for scientists. All in all, the de-industrialization of Muscovy is well under way.
