Major Irony in Russia

In a MAJOR irony, and with the blessings of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, an abridged version of Alexander Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipeligo has been made required reading for Russian high school seniors. (See also the 1973 translation published only in the West.)

With this much irony, further comment is neither necessary nor possible.
