MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin on Thursday rejected as "completely incomprehensible" remarks by Vice President Dick Cheney that Russia was backsliding on democracy and using its vast energy supplies to bully its neighbors.

"The speech of Mr. Cheney in our opinion is full of a subjective evaluation of us and of the processes that are going on in Russia. The remarks ... are completely incomprehensible for us," said Kremlin deputy spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

Cheney, in remarks that could cause tense moments when Russian President Vladimir Putin hosts his first summit of the G8 industrialized nations in July, earlier told Baltic and Black Sea leaders in Vilnius that Moscow should return to the path of democratic reform.

Cheney blasts Russia right before they need there UN Security Council vote on Iran...real smart.

Yes, but they know that Russia and/or China won't support them on the Iran "issue" so they'll probably go the same route as with Iraq. Blame UN for not acting and that USA absolutely has to. BS of course...but it seems that people are ready to be fooled once again.
