Good lord[edit]

This is the mainspace article on russia? Most of it looks like it belongs in fun. --il'Dictator Mikal 02:20, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Take a look at the funspace article. It's even worse. It appears to be written in... whatever you call the opposite of VolapukWikipedia. Omar (gibber) 02:32, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

"One of their many favorite pastimes is subsisting in the delusion that NATO is out to get them". This site is some objective piece of shit, is it?

This is a wiki with a light hearted tone to it, and pretty much every knows it. The article is maybe a little too-light hearted, but the article is fine, in my opinion. Keep calm, and stay funny.--Logic and Empricism (talk) 01:35, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

2014 Crimean Crisis[edit]

Perhaps we should mention Russia's actions in Crimea(and by extension, it's effects on the rest of Ukraine), their most blatant act of aggression and expansionism since the Cold War.

We do. TeenageWasteland (talk) 17:11, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

"Ev1l Gay" ?[edit]

With all do respect to the homosexual issue, its one of the least problems of Russia.. where is the mention of the compete nationalization of all major mass media, censorship of the press and repression of the opposition, about rise of patriotic laws and rewrite of history and distorted legal system ?

Here is couple of recent reports about free speech you mention: freedom of press, Net, general -- (talk) 20:11, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

With all "do" respect, there's nothing stopping you from putting that stuff in the article. Please "due" so. TeenageWasteland (talk) 20:17, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
Reports by such reliable, unbiased freedom-loving source as FreedomHouse.Org, sponsored by major NATO governments (U.S. Department of State, Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights, Canadian International Development Agency...) and even resentful, ousted Russian oligarchs (Mikhail Khodorkovskiy).

...Does Russia have a thing for putting dictators into power? Comrade GC (talk) 02:57, 29 December 2017 (UTC)

Ivan the Terrible, the whole false Dmitri thing, Vladimir Lenin, Josef Stalin, Vladimir Putin (uh, maybe...?)...I don't know but it seems par for the course for any major power tbh. БaбyЛuigiOнФire🚓(T|C) 02:59, 29 December 2017 (UTC)

this article is wildly russophobic and anti-communist[edit]

if rationalwiki wants to consider itself progressive in any way this article should be rewritten top to bottom. thanks

Roskomnadzor, or Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media, is basically a censorship committee. It has a long history being a pain in the arse for Russian citizens. Once they even blocked GitHub and Wikipedia.In their attempt to block Telegram they managed to block from 800K to 2M IP addresses in just one day, basically shutting down the Internet for Russia. — Unsigned, by: Cuddlef1sh / talk / contribs

South Sakhalin, Kuril Islands and Shikotan Islands disputed.[edit]




色丹諸島(歯舞諸島と色丹島)に関しては千島列島ではありません[ロシア側では"Little Kuril Islands"と呼称する]。歯舞は根室国、色丹は根室国で後に千島国に移管されましたが、地理的には千島列島ではありません。

일본 우익은 보수주의가 아니라 그저 강자한테 약하고 약자한테 강한 찌질이들인거 같습니다. 일본 정계에서 '독도 문제'를 대하는 태도와 달리 '쿠릴 열도 문제'를 대하는 태도가 좌우익이 완전히 상반되어 있는걸 보면요. 일본 우익들은 러시아와 미국은 힘쎄고 강해보이니까 고개 숙이고 순종적으로 나오는 것이고, 한국은 약하고 만만해보이니까 갈구고 괴롭히는거 같네요.--BluePink (talk) 01:14, 27 August 2020 (UTC)
It's really interesting that the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan, the Trump of the United States, the right-wing populist of Europe, the fundamentalists of Islam... Many far-right around the world seem to be pro-Russian. But with the exception of the far-right in the South Korea.(the far-right in the South Korea are still less pro-Russian than the left, and it seems that Korea has not yet deviated from the political conception of the Cold War era.)


Lol Russia had South Sakhalin first before Japan took it in a war. It was only fair that Russia took it back in the next war. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 01:44, 28 August 2020 (UTC)
樺太島を先に発見したのはロシアではなく、江戸幕府から派遣された日本人・間宮林蔵だ。日本は久春古丹(大泊 / コルサコフ)に事務所を置いた。間宮林蔵に比べれば樺太島についての伝記を書いただけのチェーホフはゴミに過ぎない。日本は1808年、ロシアは1848年に樺太が島であることを確認している。間宮海峡(Mamiya Strait)。
I agree with Duce. Japan has a strong nationalism. However, the difference is that nationalism in the right is directed toward the weaker countries, and nationalism in the left is toward the stronger countries. Unlike Europe and the United States, Japan has a minority of anti-nationalist leftists and liberals.--BluePink (talk) 12:24, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Kuril Islands Disputed (return)[edit]

The Chishima(Kuril) Islands are Japanese territory recognized by the European Parliament. It's not Russia.

--Karasawa Takahiro (talk) 06:38, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

currently disputed but administered by russia, who are unlikely to give up any disputed territory any time soon - they are too strategically important to them. with the european parliament, that article refers to a non binding resolution. it has no legal weight.
the disputed islands are de facto russian territory. AMassiveGay (talk) 09:10, 4 September 2020 (UTC)
With that logic, the Crimea will also be a Russian territory. Do you agree?--Karasawa Takahiro (talk) 10:51, 4 September 2020 (UTC)
it literally is de facto russian territory, and probably another reason they wont be giving kuril up anytime soon - they would not want to set any kind of precedent.
its not really the same issue though. the russian intervention and annexation of crimea is recent and still fresh in our minds, while the situation that preceded it is stil ongoing in the form of the donbass conflict. its faced international condemnation from the outset, not of the non binding kind, but of the kind that puts in place sanctions. still likely to remain n russia hands for the forseable future, and the longer it does, the more likely it will become undisputedly russian, its people just get used to that new reality.
kuril islands were invaded at such a time that there was no outcry, and its long enough to go that its demographics are essentially russian, and japans argument hinges on ignoring one treaty, technicalities in another. russias argument does too but they are already in place and going no place. japan has no leverage to horse trade and any kind of moral right is a little too weak to garner any serious international backing.
the population seems none too keen on going with japan either.AMassiveGay (talk) 11:58, 4 September 2020 (UTC)


The Soviet Union broke the Soviet-Japanese Neutrality Treaty and invaded Karafuto. Some locals have been slaughtered. What is fair about this? Duce Mussolini seems to be an anti-communist according to the user page, but why defend the Soviet Union? To BluePink, if you take a Russian-oriented position on Karafuto, you'll break off friendship.--Karasawa Takahiro (talk) 19:07, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
