00 RIA-Novosti Infographics. The New START (SNV-3) Treaty. 2013


US President Barack Obama launched an initiative to reduce American and Russian strategic offensive arsenals by a third and reduce tactical nuclear weapons in Europe. Now in force, the START (SNV-3) Treaty, which became binding on both signatories on 5 February 2011, obliges Russia and the USA to reduce and limit the number of deployed and non-deployed strategic nuclear offensive arms.

00 RIA-Novosti Infographics. Technical Specifications of the Proton-M Carrier Rocket. 2013


On 2 July, a Proton-M transport rocket, launched from the Baikonur Cosmodromefailed a minute after lift-off. Over the past two and a half years, this is the seventh failed Russian space launch. See our infographic for the specifications of the Proton-M rocket. The Proton-M heavy-duty Launch Vehicle (LV) is designed to launch an unmanned spacecraft into Earth orbit and then into space. The Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Centre developed the vehicle, which Roskosmos uses to launch Russian and foreign government and commercial spacecraft. Proton-M is the workhorse of the Russian space programme; at present, it’s carrying the GLONASS satellite system and Ekpress communications satellites, which will provide coverage all over Russia. Read more >> For now, Proton-M launches are on hold, after two or three days, it’ll be clear what happened to the rocket. Indeed, it’s a fairly straightforward and well-proven piece of equipment. A space programme source said, “It’s clear that it wasn’t a glitch with the rocket; it was human error”.

2 July 2013. A Bit of History Well-Worth Remembering

00.01 Rightwing Criticism of Socialism


As related by someone close to an eyewitness:

When the Americans sent the CIA to remove Patriarch Maximos Vaportzis in 1948, with Athenagoras Spyrou in the US Presidential plane, the CIA agents said to him, “You’ve got to go because you’re in bad health”. He said, “My health is fine”. They answered, “If you refuse to obey us, your health will soon be bad”.

This is why we must always be vigilant; we must be alert for clergy who suck up to the Western authorities. That’s why Potapov, Kishkovsky, Webster, Paffhausen, Jillions, Reardon, and Dahulich are traitors to the Orthosphere… they suck up to those who’ve done violence to Christ’s Church in the past, either directly or by the means of surrogates such as the Uniates and schismatics.

There are “Chekists in riassas”… most of them are Langley toadies. Have a care…
