Gunmen take bride out of Moscow psychiatric hospital

Moscow, Feb 14 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Three armed men broke out a female patient from one of Moscow's most famous psychiatric hospitals in a daring raid believed to have been led by the woman's fiance.

Moscow, Feb 14 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Three armed men broke out a female patient from one of Moscow's most famous psychiatric hospitals in a daring raid believed to have been led by the woman's fiance.

The woman, Anna Pavlenkova, reported to be 32 or 34 years old, escaped from the Gannushkin Hospital after a visit from the three men.

The four attempted to leave together, but when hospital staff intervened, the men sprayed some sort of gas and shot into the air with non-lethal firearms, the Lenta.ru website said.

Despite an intense police search, all four were still on the run till Wednesday.

Police have opened a criminal case, tentatively classifying the incident as "hooliganism", a Moscow police spokesman said.

The escape was allegedly led by Pavlenkova's fiance, Anton Brin, 26, after her relatives placed her in the hospital against her will, reportedly citing strange behaviour and tendency to wander aimlessly, which led to a diagnosis of "psychosis".

"If the hospitalization was unjustified, the doctors will bear criminal responsibility," Yury Polishchuk, head of the hospital's clinical unit, was quoted by Lenta.ru as saying.

Russian media had fun with the story, running it under headlines such as "One Flew Over the Gannushkin Nest" and "Romeo Faces 7 Years for Kidnapping Juliet from a Psychiatric Hospital".

If found guilty on hooliganism charges, the perpetrators could face up to seven years behind bars.

Congress Pays Ukraine Lip Service, Again

Sep 18 2014 12:24pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

As newly elected Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko visits Washington and addresses Congress, the United States has a second chance to help Ukraine continue its evolution as a free and vital bridge between Russia and the West. I say second chance, because we missed the first time when it might have averted the painful conflict which has ensued. A year ago, Congressional supporters of human rights and democracy sat out Ukraine's ch ...

Geopolitics of humiliation

Sep 16 2014 8:06am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

In relationships between people, as well as nations, humiliation can lead to senseless acts, inextinguishable wars. It is therefore essential not to humiliate others, to respect them; and if humiliation has taken place, if contact has been broken, to reestablish it, at least as long as the one humiliated is still accessible to dialogue and has not become a bitter enemy, that force alone can hold in check. For example, in 1919 the humiliation of Germany by the imbecile Tre ...

Sep 14 2014 2:45pm CDT | Source: WND

Recently Vladimir Putin announced a defense program to upgrade the Russian Federation’s defense systems, a 10-year program. Promptly after that, three missiles were launched from a Russian Federation submarine. This was called a test. This was done to show that Russian Federation submarines can fire missiles. That’s nothing new! Technologically speaking, the Russian Federation cannot really menace anyone at this time. The Russian Federation lags behind the United States of America ...
