This is an unedited vid of the funeral at the Federal Military Memorial Cemetery (FVMK) in Mytishchi (Moscow Oblast)… the secular farewell proper begins with speeches at 8:38. The religious service begins at 16:15. The procession to the grave begins at 23:00. The burial proper begins at 34:00. Fast forward, if you wish…

A more edited vid… the religious service begins at 1:40… it ends with the famous Sacred Love by G V Sviridov

The farewell for Lieutenant-General V M Khalilov, the Ensemble dirigent (click on the link… it works… it only looks broken for some reason)

The Russian government is keeping a tight lid on the investigation. It’s releasing nothing to the media as of today. However, I’ll report that most ordinary Russians believe that the CIA sabotaged the aircraft. Most believe that they simply interfered with the structure or engines, to make it look like a technical breakdown (a common Langley tactic). No matter what conclusion the investigation reaches, the Russian public has made up its mind… the Americans did it… at the urging of Hillary Clinton and her allies. It’s much like the sinking of the K141 Kursk… no one believes the official reason… everyone believes that an American sub rammed the Kursk.

In short, this wasn’t only a tragedy, it was another link in the chain of incidents that has eroded Russian faith in the USA. Deserved or not, that’s the reality. Unfortunately, the actions of feckless warmongering filth such as McCain and Clinton exacerbated this. God do help us.
