  1. Russia in the late '90 to early 2000s under Putin and results of that we see since 2014. AFAIK By the late '90s british/american interests had carved up russia’s natural resources (oil, gas and minerals) in the form of joint ventures with Jelzins “approval”, if you want to call a vodka stupor, aided by old age and generally bad health, that.

I just wanted to highlight this and Igors work in general, as there arn't many usefull articels when it comes to PC audio in general.
