Comment: Another Skolkovo scheme (Score 1) 83 83

Sounds like another Skolkovo. But I am not sure if this new project would even take off given the economy trends.
And their math does not add up: "a record injection of 1 billion rubles (US$194 million)". With RUB/USD rate > 50 they are an order of magnitude wrong in one of the numbers.

Very funny. Yes, Russia (in the Soviet Union incarnation) has been known for its advances in space and weaponry and related sciences. Not so much in earthly matters. Witness Russia's agriculture, automotive industry, etc. Surprisingly, oil extraction is also on the list.

I agree about your point on Russian citizens. They are just people like all other. They have different opinions, etc. But the same could be said about e.g. Nazi Germany. Most Germans were still normal people. There were some fanatics. There was Hitler at the top. Mostly normal people, but still a very evil country/state. The analogies with what happens in Russia now are striking, IMO.

Every cloud has a silver lining; you should have sold it, and bought titanium.
