Treaty on Non-Proliferation

           When Kazakhstan adopted a law on criminal liability for the dissemination of false information, I was sympathetic to this news.

           I perfectly understand that a false rumor about a bankruptcy of a bank can cause an outflow of deposits from it and lead to its real bankruptcy.

Shooting of the police officers.

     In Seoul, I turned out to be an unwilling witness to the riots related to impeachment to the country’s president, Ms. Pak Kun Hyo.

     I noticed one detail. During the clashes between the demonstrators and the police, many people in police uniforms filmed each incident, each scuffle, on the cameras. It was unusual to see this. …

      “What does it mean to replace,” I ask.

      – Well, I gave them my BMW X5 for repairs, and they give me a sedan 316 instead. Can you imagine? …

Holodomor is genocide?

       Genocide is an act committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, any national, ethnic, racial, religious or other historically formed cultural and ethnic group.

The Black Hundreds.

     At the beginning of the last century, a phenomenon such as the “Black Hundreds” developed in Russia.

     Initially, it meant an informal movement of Russian chauvinists and anti-Semites who aggressively oppressed Jews and enemies of the monarchy.

About the harm of patronage.

       As soon as I came to work in the Ministry of Agriculture, I wrote this letter to all my colleagues via internal mail:

       “Dear colleagues.
