Chris Cox to PutinCongressman Chris Cox (R-CA) has sent a letter (note: link is to a PDF file) to Vladimir Putin asking Putin if the Associated Press misquoted him when it reported Putin's lament ("First and foremost it is worth acknowledging that the demise of the Soviet Union was the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century") that the USSR is dead.
Cox's letter says, in part: "The great catastrophe of the last century in Russia was the Soviet Union itself." It is short and to the point. I wonder if he will get a reply.
