Russian Youth Movement Linked to Jailed Tycoon Has Wide Civic Goals

New York Times

The group, New Civilization, promotes capitalist ideas in Russia's youth. Quote:

"Stanislav Belkovsky, a political scientist said to have influenced President Vladimir V. Putin's battle against some of Russia's billionaires, has derided New Civilization as a 'training ground for the storm troops of big business.'"

Wow. Could you imagine anyone in America saying this sort of thing?

Yes, yes I could.
