In yet another humiliating deal, Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has agreed to surrender to the Russians a significant parcel of the newly discovered reservoirs of oil and natural gas in Iran’s Caspian waters, in exchange for Russia’s support.  Based on the agreement a garrison of 80,000 Russian soldiers will have permission to penetrate Iran’s soil as far as 70 kilometers south of Anzali Harbor, under the pretext of protecting the resources, but in reality Ayatollah’s regime.

A similar contract had previously been entered into by both sides in 2008, signed by Massoud MirKazemi, Iranian oil minister at the time and his Russian counterpart.  The contract included a military clause in an addendum signed by Iranian General Firoozabadi on behalf of Ayatollah Khamenei and a Russian Naval Commander.

Anti-Putin banner faces Kremlin  (bbc)

Russian opposition activists have erected a giant banner opposite the Kremlin saying "Putin go away".

The banner could be seen for some hours on the roof of a building on the opposite bank of the Moscow River, before it was taken down.

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is tipped to win the presidential election on 4 March. He had two terms as president, in 2000-2008.

Fraud allegations marred December's parliamentary poll won by his party.

An activist group called Solidarity says it put up the banner.
