9 October 2016. Friday Was VVP’s Birthday!



Friday was Vladimir Vladimirovich’s 64th birthday! He’s two years older than I am… so, I’m well aware that he’s thinking of the future and of who’s going to carry on after he retires (or dies). The smart word has it that D O Rogozin, the Deputy Chairman of the Government and head of the defence industry apparat is the leading candidate. Dmitri Olegovich is a nationalist, a socialist, and a patriot… what’s not to like in any of that? He’s also anti-American to the core and a determined foe of the hegemonist aggressors in Washington. The future looks good for the Rodina, in that respect…

Like all Russians, VVP keeps cats. Our saying is, “A house isn’t a home unless it has a cat in it”. In the above image, VVP shows the truth of that adage…

75th Anniversary of the Beginning of the Siege of Leningrad



Today marked 75 years since the beginning of the siege of Leningrad by the fascists during the Great Patriotic War. The blockade lasted 872 days (from 8 September 1941 to 27 January 1944) and became one of the most tragic pages in the history of the Second World War. To memorialise this momentous occasion, we prepared a thematic collection:

10 September 2016. They All Had Faces; They All Had Names


Farewell, my commander! Farewell, my friend! There are no words to express my pain. I stifle my tears; you were always there, you were a friend! When you left us, you weren’t a loser. You fought courageously for our Rodina. Bow before Major-General Aleksandr Sergeyevich Nemogai, Commander of the Kalmius Spetsnaz Brigade and Hero of the DNR!

Вечная память!

8 September 2016. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky… We Have ONE SOUL!



The International Paralympic Committee is furious! The Belarusians aren’t afraid of them; they carried the Russian flag at the Paralympic opening ceremony! The Belarusian team came to the parade of national teams at the Paralympic Games opening ceremony in Rio de Janeiro with the Russian tricolour. Can you believe that the International Paralympic Committee has already launched an investigation into the incident? One of the Belarusian team-members carried the Russian flag. They carried the flag about a quarter of the way around the stadium before they took it away. The IPC threatened athletes who were going to carry the Russian flag with severe punishment. The Belarusian action has already caused a reaction in the International Paralympic Committee, other than that, no one else condemned it. Thank you, Belarusians! You showed that old-school Russian character!
