886. Венесуэла и Никарагуа

the most important reason to start taking these Latin American adventures seriously is that the region has become a pet project of Igor Sechin, arguably the most powerful silovik in Russia, chief architect of the Yukos theft and jailing of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, warrior of the clan wars, and the multi-billionaire chairman of Rosneft. A guy like Sechin, who is believed to have mastered his Spanish as a KGB spy in Angola, is not one who wastes time on simply symbolic fear-mongering projects. Russia's aims in Latin America are lofty, serious and concretely strategic.

Кстати, ссылка уводит на пост в блоге Роберта Амстердама. Его и вообще интересно читать.
