I belive you are dead wrong here.
"Homo Sovieticus" is usually referred to persons whose outlook and way of thinking/behaving were entirely moulded by the communist Soviet-Russian propaganda and system. Don't forget that the Soviet ideology had the goal of creating "new man". In practice it meant the creation of obedient mentally restricted slave. So such products of the Soviet system are known as Homo Sovieticus. The interesting feature about them is that Homo Sovieticus are capable to reproduce themselves even after the collapse of the USSR.

Now lets come up with some names for you...oh wait, we don't need to, your views, nickname and everything you say does it better than anything.

Although, you think you are funny with your "homo soveticus" but in the USSR shallow, petty, ignornant people who tended to embody all the negative aspects of Soviet society were called "sovok / sovki".

While your views are very "anti-soviet" you very much come off as a sovok.

Don't play fool.

You can serve as an ideal example of present-day sovok with all your longing for the USSR, thinking and viewing the world only through Soviet stamps, schemes and cliches without slightest deviations, speaking about the Soviet life only in the positive light and so on.

This only shows how blind and assumptive you are. This is what you want to see. Your own personal "soveticus" ghosts.

It is clear for almost everyone that you are at late stages of homo sovietism and it can't be cured.

I dare you to cure me. I want to watch you try. You think this because you can't think anything else. A lot is clear about you too, but not to "everyone", only to intelligent people.

".......the presence of foreign fighters a criminal offence and said he would bring it up at a meeting with representatives of Interpol."

Throughout the Cold War, wherever America fought, whomever it fought against, Russian advisors were seen in the shadows, helping the enemy. I have no sympathy for Russia.

Erkki, not really. Lack of US support was very evident in Lithuania, Budapest, Prague to name a few places. Clear US support materialized only in Afganistan.
