Dominion/Mother Russia

I remember first hearing the Sisters of Mercy classic goth track (before goth was Goth)Dominion/Mother Russia back in high school and being haunted by its dark, murky message of impending doom. Oddly enough, I got that very same sense last night when I watched the following video about Putin's rising power even when he is supposedly stepping down or at least stepping over. I have always had a strict distaste for this man, and with all the news bubbling from over there, I've grown even more sceptical. Somehow my father has instilled a subtle lack of trust of Russia, perhaps due to his own upbringing during WWII. Nevertheless, this photo installation displays a garrish truth, which I'll leave for you to judge. Here is the link. To quote the compelling if not specious television series Twin Peaks, "Things are not what they seem."
