Zhirinovsky offers to… dissolve Russia

The leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) Vladimir Zhirinovsky said yesterday that he knew the way to settle the problem of the foreign debt of Russia. He said that to adjust it we should just “disband the country and create a new one in its place”. In such a case western creditors will not be able to raise a claim. According to Zhirinovsky, such action does not contradict to the international law. Why not to destroy the Russian Federation and, for example, establish a state called Eurasian Confederation together with Belorus and Armenia and resign all the obligations of Russia? - Vladimir Zhirinovsky asked the State Duma deputies. This cardinal proposal impressed some deputies so much that they promised to add this idea to the list of suggestions on the settlement of the foreign debt problem.
