Great Russian Chauvanism makes a comeback

Russian president Dmitry Medvedev:

"Russia, just like other countries in the world, has regions where it has its privileged interests. In these regions, there are countries with which we have traditionally had friendly cordial relations, historically special relations. We will work very attentively in these regions and develop these friendly relations with these states, with our close neighbours... Certainly the regions bordering [on Russia], but not only them."
