Of course he said that Crimea is not Russia. What could he say?

Russia has always had a lot of Academic Institutions with a military orientation and so have a lot of other countries throughout Europe. It goes way back and it still goes on all over the world to this day. America has the largest. I remember the Boy Scouts and the Civil Air Patrol Academy.

Not sure but it goes back as far as the 14 th century for most of them.

His sunglasses. Because nobody would ever need to wear them there.

This rise in Orthodox extremist have to do with a law passed back in 2013.

The bill was accepted 11 June 2013.[149][150] According to art.148 of Russian Criminal Code 1 it is declared a federal crime to conduct "public actions, clearly defying the society and committed with express purpose of insulting religious beliefs". Part 2 of the same article places a stricter punishments for the aforementioned actions, when coupled with desecration of holy symbols and (or) religious texts

I recently read an article about Nationalism. Its been one of the most destructive concepts ever devised by humanity. We're all human beings. We all live on this world. Nationalism focuses on the differences of people. Not what they have in common. It leads to numerous ills.

Just another reason to say we're not that far from the cave yet.

Isn't Russia a monarchy of a sort now? Or very close kin to it? I really get impression that Putin is Russias king and that Russians in a way see him as that.

no because that means that his kids would then inherit the presidency which is not the case. Many people are predicting that once Putin steps down the presidency will be passed to Sergey Shoygu

You can make a claim that Russia is a dictatorship, but a monarchy it is not. But I don't even think it's a dictatorship.

Would be hilarious if it happened. With all the white nationalist who praise Putin/Russia in western countries.
What will they do with an asiatic.

This is not a nationalist camp. This is a multinational military camp for boys from Russia (most boys), Donetsk, Syria.

The monarchy is excluded. A transfer of power by inheritance is archaism. More likely it will be a replication of the Soviet system, but instead of the CPSU there will be Orthodoxy.

Radicalization of Christianity will be a big problem. I have written about this many times before. In Russia (influence of religion will increase) and in Europe (as a response to the migration crisis).

Shoigu and Putin have one age (difference of 3 years). What is the point?
