Read my post of Sat @ 23:11 - what did I say about ' at least the youth in Russia has access to the internet and hence an infrastructure to challenge the State - unlike China where the internet is already heavily censored;

Then just saw this today:

Now maybe a few will actually wake up about Russia (Ex USSR) vs. The West in terms of morality, corruption and security.

Slovenia - just ex-soviets with loadsa EU freebies - they must really think we are just so incredibly gullible and stupid (can't think why!?!?)

Hi bacard70: Glad to hear at least the more cosmopolitan areas of Albania seem to be improving (although Tirana is about the start and end of anything remotely cosmopolitan). However, the corruption I witnessed was ingrained and endemic - admittedly this can and hopefully will change but you're talking about a fundamental change of culture - and that takes at least a generation.
My son has lived and worked in Russia for nearly three year. But he will be the first to tell you the place is filthy with endemic corruption - it's just accepted, how it is - a way of life - lying is the norm. He'll make his pot, then get the hell out - the lack of any western concept of morality or serious law there is primarily substituted by the wrong end of a 9mm - and that includes the police. Why do you think a condition of service in the Russian police, Armed Forces - even the bloody fire service - debars you from leaving the country for the duration of your tenure (and two years thereafter) without specific authority? It's how the security forces keep the population in line on behalf of the Russian High Command (AKA: Putin). A man who would likely kill his own mother to protect his position - most here in the West simply have no concept of how grim and utterly corrupt it really is - it's almost too hard to comprehend and believe it possible - particularly for the young and gormless (i.e. a fair percentage of the population). At least the younger generation in Russia can access the internet - hence there is an infrastructure available to challenge the State - in China - even that is censored and much content denied the population.
Slovenia is a recent satellite of that fundamental type of culture and has been over decades (until 1991 to be precise) - what do you think the average Slovenian is like when not on an gizzit type EU parade?
None of this gives me any pleasure bacardi70 - but it doesn't make it any less of a reality.
That's why Colin in little more than a child with regard to his ability to deal with the totally ruthless local businessmen.
Would love to be wrong - but........................
All IMO of course

We actually went to Tirana last October the countryside was exceptionally poor but Tirana was really upmarket. The country has moved from poor to lower middle class through aid from the EU and selling oil to surrounding countries mainly Italy. I too think my investment in Ast has gone down the swanee mainly through inept management but heyhoe I maybe surprised.
