I don't know about how much will this move improve life of Tatars in reality, but it shouldn't be seen as negative. Concerning repression on Christians and Jews - well, here you might be wrong. Christian church is (since Putin came to power) getting stronger daily - and some say - it plays way too strong role in the society nowadays. Concerning Jewish community: there has always been a part of society which hates anything "non-russian" (and among them also Jews). However, Russia is one of very few countries which has a dedicated Autonomous Region for Jewish people (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_Autonomous_Oblast). And worth of mentioning is, that some very influential people in economy and politics are Jewish.
Does this mean that everything's ok in Putin's Russia? No.
Especially if you ask some journalists who have been persecuted, or gay&lesbian community. Or young ambitious people who do not see any perspective for them.
But Christians and Jews are rather ok (esp. compared to the soviet times).

As far back as I can remember, Easter weekend in my Toronto household has involved Mass, new white shoes for first my little sisters and now my little daughters, and a burnished, eyebrow-rippling Charlton Heston on our TV, solemnly hamming it up as

Undoubtedly a Russian jet not a Ukrainian jet. RT is a bunch of liars.

Let me see if I got this straight. Russia buzzes a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea repeatedly and President Obama responds by changing his mind about sending MRE's to Ukraine out of fear of provoking Russia. He is the worst President ever. Absolutely impotent. Pathetic. Words fail me here.
The Obama administration reportedly is withholding even non-lethal military aid to Ukraine for fear it could further inflame tensions -- despite already intensifying clashes between the country's government and pro-Russia militiamen.

I guess Obama's strategy is is Russia attacks Ukraine. It will be an all out war.

Thats to simple. But it would be fucked up on a major level if we don't guarantee the treaties with Ukraine.

Of course RT is lying through its teeth. This is undoubtedly a Russian jet flying over the area.
