00 Easter 01. Assumption Cathedral Yekaterinburg. 18.04.14.

______________________________

They’re gettin’ ready for Easter in Yekaterinburg (that’s in the Urals… it’s where the Imperial Family suffered martyrdom). People at the Assumption Cathedral are making Easter eggs for the weekend services. Yes, Virginia, things are achingly NORMAL in the Mother Church… thank God for that! Get those last-minute things done… it’s almost here! Remember… the Easter Bunny’s legit… he’s on pre-Revolutionary Easter cards with “Christ is Risen” on ’em… let your kids have some FUN…

BASTARDS! Junta Desecrates Holy Day… Puts Out “Wanted” Notice on Yanukovich’s Son on Holy Friday… What a Bunch of Godless Maroons!

01 Satan

______________________________

According to the official MVDU website, on Friday, the SBU put Aleksandr Yanukovich, the son of legitimate Ukrainian President V F Yanukovich on a wanted list. Official reports claim that Aleksandr Yanukovich is a suspect in committing a crime under the UKU articles on forgery by an official, falsification of documents, and drawing up and issuing documents known to be false. This article of the UKU stipulates imprisonment for 2 to 5 years. The SBU said that the court issued a writ of attachment for the suspect.

They couldn’t have waited for Monday! No, they had to shit all over one of the holiest days in the Christian Year. This shows you that the junta isn’t only a pack of liars whose word can never be trusted; they’re nasty-ass blasphemers of the worst sort. Issuing an APB on Holy Friday on a non-violent “suspect” who’s not an immediate danger to anyone… that’s EVIL.

German Free Democratic Party Slams NATO’s Actions in the Ukraine

FRANCE-GERMANY-NATO-SUMMIT-DEFENCE

______________________________

On Friday, Wolfgang Kubicki, Deputy Chairman of Germany’s Free Democratic Party (FDP), said in an interview with DPA, “I consider as most counterproductive that NATO has concentrated its forces to the so-called eastern border and the involvement of the Bundeswehr in it. It’s also very dangerous. It’s most important to develop a dialogue with Russia, and to expand the participants in negotiations between Europe and Moscow. The very high support [by Russians of the policy of President Vladimir] Putin should make us think twice. Talking to each other doesn’t mean firing at each other, but rather understanding of each other”.

On 17 April, NATO’s press service reported that the alliance was sending five warships to the Baltic Sea to support its Eastern European allies. The source said that the group included warships from Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Estonia. Earlier, a NATO Council meeting in Brussels approved a package of measures to strengthen the security of the alliance’s Eastern European member-states due to the crisis in the Ukraine. Following the meeting, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said that the alliance would have more planes in the air, more ships in the water, and land forces would be ready.

The FDP is the coalition partner of the CDU in the Merkel government, without its support, it’d fall. Besides that, it’s a neoliberal “Free Market” bunch to the RIGHT of Merkel’s CDU. Even the righties see no good in the junta! Germany isn’t going to threaten Russia militarily nor with economic sanctions, not now, not later, not ever. Add to this the fact that Die Linke (the main Leftist party, the successors of the SED… the righties keep them under surveillance, a sign that they have a serious chance at power) opposes antagonising Russia, and that many elements in the SPD (a centre-left bunch) don’t favour such either means that Germany won’t join the American goading of the Bear. NATO’s revealed to be a ramshackle “Coalition of the Unwilling”… after all, most European states have slashed defence spending to the bone, and they’re not going to reverse that any time soon.

18 April 2014. A Picture IS Worth a Thousand Words: A Good Sign… Greek Bishop and Turkish Imam in Holy Friday Procession in Famagusta (Cyprus)

00 Greek Orthodox bishop and Islamic cleric. Holy Friday. 18.04.14

_____________________________

Here’s a sign of GOOD NEWS. A Greek bishop and a Turkish imam walk together on Holy Friday in Famagusta in Cyprus. Mind you, the imam didn’t take part in the services, and there’s no set rubric for processing with the plashchanitsa (there are customs, but that isn’t the same, they differ from place to place, and rightfully so). This is isn’t the same as “sharing prayer”.

By the way, I didn’t post anything until after 15.00 EDT because this is the most solemn day of the Christian Year. In fact, I’m not going to post any “Church politics” today, as it’d be out of place. I AM posting on a VERY important story tomorrow. Stay tuned, kids.
