  • “Can any Western company get a fair shake in the Russian court system when the adversary is the Russian government?”

    That’s such a loaded question. Like asking “Will Russia admit the case is a sham?”

    The US and UK are so proud of their judicial systems even when they are proven time and again to have glaring faults (by the way, no-one was reprimanded for shooting Menezes, and the London Underground CCTV footage still ‘can’t be found’).

    Double, triple standards.
