18-10-2004 22:20

At the end of September, 115 politicians and foreign policy experts signed a letter that was delivered to the heads of NATO and European Union States.

Consequently the only rebuke was Bush stating that he hopes Putin does not abandon Democracy upheld by checks and balances within the Russian government, but even this was ironic.
