Medvedev Makes Nice

Relations between Russia and the Baltic states must "step over their previous ideological stereotypes, which were created before us," Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said at the Europe-Asia media forum in Moscow on Wednesday. "I would like for relations between the Baltic states and Russia to improve. There was a golden era of relations we must struggle to return to,” he said. “We were in harmony you and us, moving towards the future, hand in hand. And I pledge to you that I will do all in my power to see to it that we return to that peaceful era before 1990, when we enjoyed mutual respect, prosperity, and you knew when to shut up and do as you’re told. And our foot was on your neck. Yes.”


  1. is it me, or does Medvedev remind anyone else of the Howdy Doody doll?

  2. Which means Vladimir Putin would be Buffalo Bob Smith with Howdy Doody Medvedev on his lap.
