OW! My nervous system

You don't even need a proper nerve agent in this situation.  All it takes is a small drop of concentrated laundry detergent going unnoticed on a pair of tidy whites and you will never leave clean laundry by the washing machine again.

This is how bad things get in a kleptocracy.  The 6-10 guys who are personally hired to assassinate on behalf of the president - a man worth billions - live here and wear this:

In Russia, becoming a mercenary in Syria is considered a good job.  Now step back and recognize that millions of your American countrymen are advocating for a kleptocrat because he beats up the right minorities.  Same as in Russia.

When America wants someone dead they use a drone. When Russia wants someone dead agents on the ground use poison. Poison is like artisanal assassination I can almost picture the agents with arms covered in ironic tattoos a scarf around the neck and thick framed retro glasses. Handcrafted murder the way it used to be back before corporations got involved.

Poison in underwear? Some where Fidel Castro is shaking his head. Although to be fair, not being an expert in poison myself, I wouldn't think to check the underwear.

What the fark does the fact that becoming a mercenary being an attractive job have to do with anything?

Heard of Blackwater?

Oh, and USA doesn't have conscription, why is that?

Now that your random confusion is out if the way, shrug.

I've been to the former Soviet Union once. Apartments, and apartment buildings does kinda look like that, as if they were mass-produced over a very short period of time from an agrarian society to an industrial one, they don't look very attractive from the outside, and the colour shows.

Inside they can be as nice as the occupant feels like or can afford.

We have a lot those in Western-Europe as well, as we imported labour from Turkey,, Greece, Italy etc

If you just need to mass produce high rices during that time, you'd get Brutalism at best.

Dear News Media:

This is news. Do more of this.

Thank you,

I've got to imagine every street gang out there is laughing like mad at the FSB. These dummies literally told on themselves less than 2 days after their leader was all "if we wanted him dead, he'd be dead."

This is probably the best news article I have read this entire year.

Please execute every news investigation with the same thorough and level approach.

Thank you.

Navalny has brass balls, that's why the poison wasn't as effective as they'd hoped.

I'd like to see a Trump airport in on of those 'shiathole countries'. Maybe Mogadishu in Somalia. He could get permanently lost in a reprisal of Tom Hanks in The Terminal and just wander around in a personal hell with the red tie touching the floor as he begs for change

Just ask Floyd Landis how effective a drug can be if applied directly to the scrotum ( a very vascular area with relatively thin skin).

One man, Oleg Tayakin, slammed the door shut when questioned by CNN. Others did not respond.

Oleg would not get to yakkin' this day.

Blame any spelling errors on my phone.

And yes, high rises where mass produced.

Were!! WERE! Come on, I'm Russian, too, but at least I can differentiate "were" and "where" when I'm writing an excuse for my poor spelling!  Wth, dude?!! Were you also one of those people who work for FSB because they just don't cut it to be hired as shopping mall guards?

You are wrong. Incompetence is never, ever punished in Russia, especially in the state service. Those people will be just fine, they won't be even fired.

That's one of the reasons why assassinations in Russia go like this. Being a loyal idiot is what leaders want and demand, and "idiot" is not a bug here, it's a feature.
