Russia is becoming a police state. Thought rather 'IS' than 'IS becoming'.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. BBC News - US concern over Russian activist's detention in Kiev

    Just wait and something similar will happen in London. As for so called Russian Law Enforcement structures then they should be called Law Violating ones.

    Possibly, but Harriet Harman and Labour will have to get re-elected first.
     
  3. Oh well, it took us the best part of a decade to get rid of Abu Hamza, at least the Ivans are prepared to take action when presented with a pain in the arse.
     
  4. Becoming?

    Russia appears to me to be no more of a police state than UK. Its just different.

    Very much so redshift. At least Putin got a majority of votes/duma seats for him to take the presidency. We cannot say either is true about Cameron.
     
  11. An the KGB would have loved the surveillance set-up that we have in this country.

  12. I would say that Russias status as a police state is fairly obvious and has been for a considerable time. As for Europe the various Govts' ever increasing desire for more information on their subjects could almost warrant our status as a collective police state. With some member countries a bit more inclined to spying on/controlling the people and others a bit less inclined.
     
  13. Talk about the Kettle calling the Pot!

    and just what is the UK and USA doing with Julian Assange? - He is being forcefully detained with the risk of being extradited to the USA without charge, Lawyers or any other form of legal representation on a very flimsy accusation that would otherwise be thrown out of court.!

    The UK is becoming a Police state - Blind Pensioners are Tasered in broad daylight, people are shot in the head and killed for running away from undercover policemen who fail to identify themselves as such, Video cameras watch your every move, your calls and emails are monitored and the rights of the common people are being eroded bit by bit under the pretence of the war on terror!- The Armed forces are also being reduced and made more innefective......no chance of a Military coup then.....
     
  14. No shit - I've never seen so many bloody cameras anywhere else. It's like being one big "reality" show. Also, you would think that with all those cams around, the felons would be instantly caught!
     
  15. So as far as the brains trust on this thread is concerned when it comes to civil rights, freedom of expression, the accountability of the State and it's agencies there is precious little difference between Cameron's Britain and Putin's Russia?

    What a buch of spolied, ignorant and silly little children you are.
