Polite Government Takeover

Isnít Clear Politics nice? Instead of just taking over the giant Russian oil company, Yukos, the Russian government is trying to gently tax the profitable institution out of business, thereby taking it over politely and providing the pretense of a government beyond corruption.

Russia is such a mess you can see why some want the communists back. They didnít pretend to be uncorrupt.

Yes, the Yukos issue has affected oil prices worldwide, even touching your gas tank.
