23 October 2013. RBTH Infographics. What Russians Think About the Greenpeace Case

00 RBTH Infographics. What Russians Think About the Greenpeace Case. 2013


A public poll suggests that about 60 percent of Russians believe that the reaction of the Russian authorities to the action of Greenpeace activists was appropriate. Only 17 percent think that the reaction was too harsh and only 8 percent said it was to light. VTsIOM conducted the poll amongst 1,600 people from 42 Russian federal subjects at the end of September.

23 October 2013. Have a RUSSIAN Smile… How the Russians (Along with Help from Will Smith and Gérard Depardieu) Foiled the Space Aliens

00 Russia Day. The alien invasion. Part 1. 23.10.13


00 Russia Day. The alien invasion. Part 2. 23.10.13


Who woulda thunk it? The Earth’s secret weapon is… VODKA! Its most expert practitioners, the Russians, wield it… gee, the aliens won’t have a chance trying to outdrink a bunch of Russkie topers (with a little help from the Polacks and Serbs, who’re just as wild n’ wooly partiers as we are)! Get a load of the penultimate frame… Medvedev in a telnyashka waving about a bottle of hooch… that’s priceless…



On 12 June, Russia gets ready to celebrate Russia Day. All is set when a giant alien spaceship enters the Earth’s orbit and prepares to attack Russia. President Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev, and French actor Gérard Depardieu are in charge of saving the country and the entire world from an alien invasion. Luckily, for them, Independence Day veteran Will Smith happens to be in Russia for the promotional tour of his latest movie… all is set for yet another inter-space battle of epic proportions. Will our heroes succeed?

In the middle of the Russia Day celebrations on 12 June, a giant alien spaceship threatened the country. Hollywood actor Will Smith, in Moscow on a promotional tour, tries to fight back (Independence Day-style, of course!), but he’s taken as a prisoner. It’s now up to French actor Gérard Depardieu, who recently acquired Russian citizenship, to save Will Smith and the entire country from an alien invasion. He hides inside a matryoshka Trojan horse with a stash of party supplies… will his ingenious plan work?
