I’ve been hearing so much about the economic crisis world-wide, and how America is dealing with it, that I haven’t really paid that much attention to some of the local news here in Ukraine. Not to mention the news from our northern neighbor.

I was a little surprised to run across this article expressing any kind of “divide” between Putin and Medvedev. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in 2009!

This financial crisis is causing some unusual alliances as well as surprising antagonists! I guess we’ll soon see who is actually in power in Russia…

(Did you know that the root meaning of Medvedev is “bear” in Russian? Interesting, eh?)
