Just trying to see if it’s possible to use status effectively.
When I was in high school, the USSR was infamous for its persecution of dissidents. When I grew up, the US became famous for its persecution of whistleblowers.
Frankly, Mr Chubais’s efforts on behalf of Russia would be better rewarded with a jail cell than a government office.
As the US seeks to divide the world into two halves and ban both China and Russia, there’s a good chance that the world won’t follow.
