I still don’t. When one looks at Saskana, all one has seen for years is Putin-style fraud and cheat. Hence, perhaps, an easy and unfortunate mistake.
The icing and topping, the easily identifiable style may not necessarily have much to do with Saskana’s real flesh and blood. I still strongly believe, however, Moscow really is the parent regime, the original DNA donor to Saskana. Spiritually, mindset-wise. But it is clearly not Saskana’s essence, not the fuel or the idea.
