Russia’s future remains as uncertain as its past
has been tragic.
...
The nature of the current
Russian regime itself also carries
significant concerns. To a considerable extent its leaders
have emerged from the old KGB. Thus, their education
and bureaucratic culture have inculcated them with a
ruthlessness that recalls their predecessors, but without
their ideological fervor
...
while many of its European neighbors
have almost completely disarmed, the Russians have
begun a military buildup
...
At present there is a dangerous combination
of paranoia - some of it justified considering Russia’s
history - nationalism, and bitterness at the loss of what
many Russians regard as their rightful place as a great
power. It was just such a mixture, along with a series
of unfortunate events that drove Nazi Germany on its
ill-thought-out course.
