My husband knows a few Russian jokes. In one, this Russian guy is learning Hebrew just in case there really is a heaven and hell, so he can speak to other folks in heaven if he gets there. And he gets asked "What if you go to hell?" He replies "I already speak Russian".
So, I think you should consider renaming the thread to "More proof that Russia has already GONE to hell".
RE the actual article in question: Truly awful stuff.
The best Russian joke I know is from our translator who pointed to a small brown building as said, "that is the tallest building in Leningrad". Obviously such a small building was no where near the tallest and when we protested he said, "yes, but the KGB building sees all the way to Syberia." With any luck this little monster will go there as well.
