Faut-il avoir peur de la Russie?

Caricature de DARYL CAGLE, CAGLECARTOONS.COM

 L'auteure est russe et elle dépeint une Russie qui est moins menaçante et/ou puissante qu'on pourrait le croire à la lumière de l'actualité américaine rapportée dans les médias.

" Donskoy isn’t Russia’s poorest city. The problems here are common in provincial towns: potholed roads, ancient utilities and underfunded health care. Official statistics indicate that the percentage of Russians living below the poverty line — less than $170 per month — has been growing since 2013, and that by mid-2016 they numbered more than 21 million people in a country of 143 million. A report in December on spending by typical provincial families concluded that 70 percent to 80 percent of monthly income goes to essentials like food, medicine and transportation."
