Same Game, Less Subtle

Phone Seizure Seen as Example of Russian Corruption - New York Times:
"Next month Russia will play host to the Group of 8 meeting, during which it will strive to convince the West that it is a responsible and reliable energy partner that welcomes outside investment. Yet, Mr. Ryzhkov and others say that the voraciousness of officials has expanded beyond soliciting bribes, a routine practice in Russian business, into theft, extortion and racketeering."

Give it some time, and they'll be just as good at corrupting working the system as Duke Cunningham or Dick Cheney.
