Грантоеды.

Зацепились надысь с одной либеральной особой по-поводу деятельности общества "Мемориал". И решил я глянуть на их финансирование. Вот описания грантов, полученных этой славной конторой от Национального фонда поддержки демократии (США). Фонд этот не простой. Он только на словах негосударственный и независимый, а на деле его бюджет формируется Конгрессом США.
Ну и, сталобыть, этот фонд раздает денег направо и налево. Как видит, что демократия в опасности, так сразу и заносит.
