Thanks Brian, appreciate the my eastern European wife will not have to help me find "lies with faces" on the site. I can read cyrillic russian but not that great for reliably using a website.

Maybe that listed could be appended to the Magnitsky List.

The State Duma has made a change to the constitution that allows the Constitutional Court to decide if Russia must comply with international court rulings.

The Russian Federation is slowly turning away from the International Order. Russia no longer has to comply by the European Court of Human Rights ruling over the Yukos case, nor is Russia forced to comply with any other international court rulings that Russia finds inconvenient.

The International Order is slowly breaking down. We have entered a time of political, economic, financial, trade and military conflict that seems to escalate by the day.

Good idea, we need to create a website in which there will be the names of war criminals of the United States, who are guilty of the Vietnam, Iraqi, Libyan, Afghani and many other wars. There will be thousands and thousands of names of those who are to blame for the deaths of tens of millions of civilians around the world.

The article is about Russia and not the rest of the world.
If you want to make the world a better place then starting in Turkey would be a great idea.

We need to expose the names of those who robbed the money of American taxpayers. Just imagine, the United States has a 18 trillion dollar budget deficit! Crazy amount of money spent on killings and destructions! Just think what could of been done if the Money was spent on healing the world, not ripping it apart.

Throughout history there has always been tyrants and evil men. I just wouldn't have thought my country would be leading or one of the main players in this sick game of greed and corruption. These are the most vile of the vile pieces of trash that create this suffering for global power. The more you read into it, it gets more and more disturbing. These people really are frightening.

James and Mahmud, There are plenty of companies in the US that will set you up with a web-site for very little per month. You can generally get away with saying most anything about a government official though you should check into the law to make sure. It will help to use credible references for your claims, otherwise the site may not get proper attention.

The article is about Russia and not the USA. If you don't like the country you live suggest you move to Russia

It is fantastic that it is being done. It is very important to hold individuals responsible. Putin's army is not a faceless entity, it is comprised of single being who made conscious decisions. It would be great if it got translated into English. Maybe can help. I would love volunteer to get this facts translated across the world. :)

You are talking about corruption in Russia, but why not talk about the global war crimes led by US? We are dealing with a criminal undertaking at a global level … and there is an ongoing war, which is led by the United States, it may be carried out by a number of proxy countries, which are obeying orders from Washington…

The global war on terrorism is a US undertaking, which is fake, it’s based on fake premises. It tells us that somehow America and the Western world are going after a fictitious enemy, the Islamic state, when in fact the Islamic state is fully supported and financed by the Western military alliance and America’s allies in the Persian Gulf…

They say Muslims are terrorists, but it just so happens that terrorists are made by America. They’re not the product of Arabic or Russian society, and that should be abundantly clear to everyone on this floor… The global war on terrorism is a fabrication, a big lie and a crime against humanity!
