Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't find this to be even remotely anti-Russian.  This is a journalist who is clearly frightened by what he has seen.  You can disagree with his assessment, tell the rest of us (who don't live in Russia and don't have the background information to speak intelligently on its politics) that he's full of shit, but these are his experiences.  If anything, the writer seems like a person who had high hopes for Russian democracy, and who is warning that it is failing to materialize, due to a group of thugs and crony-capitalists controlling the Kremlin.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
