Russia is enveloped in a crisis. An economic, governmental, and
social crisis; a crisis in the middle of which are people.
Boris Yeltsin is in his ninth year of presidency. Since the
government devaluated the ruble, the value of their money has
plummetted. Not only that, many Russians are receiving very low
incomes, with almost 10 rubles equaling the dollar.
The supply of medicine is threateningly low, an extreme that is
resulting in many people not receiving the proper medical treatment
that they should.
Children are roaming the streets neglected, ignored, and unloved.
Russia has a big need to adopt; children need homes. They are
retreating to drugs, alcohol, prostitution, and other illegal means as
a way to make a living; frankly, as ways to survive.
Russia's morals are becoming poor. But yet, after the Communists
claimed Russia, all things started to be run by the government. People
acted as slaves to the Communists, working for them, gaining their
permission or "authorization" to leave their homes when traveling,
doing what they say, when they say, how they say. That was the life of
the Soviet Union.
Russia is now a democracy. But has the mentality changed? Has the
Communism left? Russia in numerous ways is suffering. The people are
in the midst of a crisis.
