South Ossetian Conflict And Financial Crisis Are Of Same Origin - Medvedev In "First State of the Nation Address"


www.russiatoday.com

The crisis in the Caucasus and the near collapse of the global financial system are so far the main focus of the Russian President's annual speech. For the first time since the beginning of his term in office, President Dmitry Medvedev is addressing the Federal Assembly in the Kremlin.

“The U.S. economy has pulled down other world markets. And this crisis has also become a global one.”

"...we will not retreat from the Caucasus," he said.

"The world cannot be ruled from one capital"

Very strong quotes can make from this speech by Russian President Medvedev after US Elections today...

Russia is there, and its strong, and they want to get them heard. We can see this a clear sign for the new president Obama: If you want NWO to put place, you wont get it without fighting us first!

Russia is strongly united with China in SCO, and they have only common interests now. They have lots of capital and wealth to back their words, and they dont want NATO to their back or front yard anymore. Its time for change, and they make it happen.

I just like this message. I like to hear how hard Russia is willing to oppose US Hegemony, and blame those who are responsible from multi+made+problems all over the world. They challenge Elite of western world, and demand their interests to back off.

They dont wait any "change" from US, they just demand it!

Medvedev proposes extending presidential, parliamentary terms



Medvedev said that he proposed, "extending the terms of office for the president and the State Duma [the lower house] to six and five years, respectively," Medvedev said in his first state-of-the-nation address to parliament.

"I am convinced that our progress toward freedom and democracy will be successful and unwavering only if the prestige of the president and the State Duma is sufficiently high and based on the practical results of their activities, and if they have enough time to put their pledges into practice," Medvedev said.

The irony would be that, when the shuttles go into retirement, Russia tells Nasa to go ask the chinese to ferry their astronauts to the ISS.

It's about time they put their respective feet down. USA is lucky Russia didn't blow their tops due to American involvement in the Georgia war.

South Osetia's and Abkazia's independence and sovereignty should've always been acknowledged, the war would have never happened.
