I'm a native russian speaker, and I can vouch for the validity of the narration. It's pretty spot on, with the exception of a few words here and
there that don't change the meaning.
he uses a pretty strange segue - he starts talking about wine/general goods exchange in the beginning, only to talk about the discrepancy being
handled by the fact that there are only 4 superpowers in the world, all of which are generally agreeable with each other. basically, if and when the
other superpowers become disagreeable, that's when he starts talking about all that "new weapon of destruction" business. he's clearly on edge,
but that does not sound like a drunk russian - i've been keeping up to date with Zhirinovsky every now and then when he resurfaces internationally,
and he's pretty consistent about his message every single time (although this "new weapon" talk is VERY new). he ALWAYS sounds insane, but he also
maintains a pretty reasonable amount of power in the russian government. i hope that he actually IS drunk, but i highly doubt it.
this is my first post by the way, so hi ATS! you guys needed a russian speaking individual to validate the narration, so i figured i'd sign up!
