Forgetting the Soviet Union collapsed

I love it when Russian politicians and bureaucrats get quoted in full, because so much of their speech gives away the fact that they've never really given up on the spirit of the Soviet Union:

Dmitri Peskov, a spokesman for Mr. Putin, called the song “hooliganism” and told the Ria Novosti news agency that he thought it unfortunate that Georgia would use the song competition to “promote pseudopolitical ambitions.”

They're talking about Georgia's Eurovision entry, which is a pretty awful English-language song that tells Putin that Georgia wants to dance, not fight.
