Thanks, a Steyn top ten. One of his best, ever.

It was a poultry complaint but indicative of a retreat into old-school Kremlin paranoia.

There are so many errors in Steyn's article I don't know where to start, and so I will just list a couple and let others add to the list. I'm not saying Russia doesn't have problems, but the author doesn't have a clue.
Firstly, Russian men do not live to 56, which is an exaggeration on Steyn's part. It did drop to 58 at one time, but now is back over 60.
Secondly, while Russia did have a problem with abortions at one time, abortion has been strictly restriced by law to the first 12 weeks.
