And why not?

The Russians get a tad peeved at being lectured by Brussels on what goes on in the Rodina, and have decided to take the passive aggressive approach:

"A think tank for freedom and democracy proposed by Russia to be set up in one of the European capitals could start work as early as 2008...'The activities of the institute will focus on EU election legislation, the rights of ethnic minorities and immigrants in the European Union, xenophobia, racism and media freedom' an aide to the Russian president said".

Brussels, Paris and Berlin are on the shortlist.
