Russophobia is Like AIDS: Once Infected… You’re Always a Mark

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. Russophobia. 2015


Vitaly Podvitsky



When it comes to Russia, people tend to talk about Russians as “this unfortunate people that have no clue what freedom is “. To that, I answer, “How do you know? Have you lived in Russia? For example, unlike our Belgium, they have an opposition there. We don’t have one at all”. It’s true, in Belgium there’s no opposition. There are parties that weren’t part of the Government at the last election, and they sometimes criticise those who are in power. However, it isn’t an opposition in the proper sense. Nevertheless, as a rule, Belgians are simply unable to understand what I’m talking about. Western propaganda is so pervasive that most Belgians now view Russia as a belligerent country with a fascist dictatorship. Discussion with people is useless; you’re talking to a wall.

Every war has two phases… firstly, there’s a preparatory phase, with programmes, news, various kinds of propaganda, and lies on TV; then, comes the second stage… the war itself. Everything that I watch now shows that the preparatory phase has already begun. All of this follows a set scenario. Firstly, the rhetoric in the articles on the country of the supposed “enemy” changes… suddenly, this country doesn’t have a real government; its leader is no longer a President, but a “dictator”. Therefore, gradually, an image of an “enemy” emerges. However, when Belgians started to agree with the Russians, the media removed any mention of Russia.

Propaganda always portrays the leader of the putative “enemy” as an evil dictator; they tell us, “The people of this country suffer, and we now can help by toppling this dictator from power”. That’s how it was in the First World War and Second World War; all countries do that before they attack. They did that way back when, too. Let’s remember how we talked about dictatorial régimes and violence of Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi before the attacks on Iraq and Libya. By the way, these leaders also received the same treatment, first, they had their assets abroad frozen, and there was a publication of what they held. These are all signs of the first phase. Russia, of course, is a bit different. Let’s not forget, Russia has a strong army, which can smash Europe to bits without the use of nuclear weapons, everybody knows this, so we’re all perfectly aware of the consequences of a possible armed conflict with Russia. Therefore, everybody’s very careful and prudent with Russia.

Recently, the USA incessantly criticised Europe for miserly contributions to the NATO budget; they accused Europeans of cutting corners on the military budget because of financial problems caused by the economic crisis. However, the USA can’t fight alone; they need puppet-allies. During all the 25 years after the collapse of the USSR, NATO never gave up its ideas of attacking Russia. However, they had no pretext. Now, due to the chaos in the Ukraine, a pretext appeared, so, they’re actively developing plans. People of the older generation, bred on propaganda against the USSR have already accepted the idea of the inevitability of conflict with Russia. I know what they say; I grew up at a time when they told us constantly in school, “If the Russians come here, they’ll stick you in the Gulag”. The cry, “The Russians are coming!” is again relevant. When our Minister for Defence announced that 1,000 Belgian soldiers would go to the Baltic States in case of a Russian attack and that we need to increase NATO military budget expenditures, no one in the country raised any eyebrows. Russophobia is like AIDS…once infected, you’re always a mark. The only thing that prevents America from dominating the world is Russia. Therefore, don’t build illusions about a possible friendship in the future. I wish you fortitude and courage.

Masterskaya Karikatury



I’d like to remind my Orthodox readers that Victor Potapov grew grey in the service of the CIA as an unapologetic and mendacious purveyor of black propaganda via Radio Liberty, the CIA’s dezinformatsiya outlet to the Motherland. He’s never repented of his treason to Holy Rus and to the Holy Church. Think on this… that makes him one of the WORST Sergianists ever. Remember what a Sergianist is… a cleric who kisses the ass of the powers-that-be for personal enrichment, and who distorts the teaching of the Church to do so. Potapov is (or was) a responsible official in the CIA-front Radio Liberty (all know this, it’s no secret), he held a US official passport, he has an income well in excess of the median, and he tries unremittingly to link the Church with dubious Far Right groups, figures, and publications. That’s Sergianism, kids… funny, those who blubber the most about “Chekists in riassas” are Chekists in riassas themselves! Ponder that, if you will…

Plotnitsky sez Local Leaders Will Bear Full Responsibility for the Affairs in their Jurisdictions

00 I V Plotnitsky. LNR. Lugansk PR. 20.05.15


Today, I V Plotnitsky, LNR Chairman of the Government, stated that full responsibility for all sociopolitical affairs in LNR jurisdictions will reside in the heads of administrations of cities and raions, who should not only be managers, but also political leaders. He said, “All local government heads are my political comrades and allies, they’re all members of the NGO World of Lugansk, which imposes on them a special responsibility for the situation. Today, our Republic’s situation is extremely difficult, but authorities can take decisive and effective steps to ensure payment of pensions, social benefits, and wages of employees, and pay out everything budgeted for. We order regular payment of pensions, allowances, and salaries to state employees. Heads of administration should provide further action to ensure social dialogue and co-operation. Now, heads of local administrations act more like business executives and not political leaders. All leaders should be “hands-on” participants in all political processes; they should feel the mood and problems of the people… that’s their sacred duty. Make no mistake; I intend to be very firm about this”.

The NGO World of Lugansk is the largest movement in the LNR, founded before the elections of the LNR Peoples Soviet, which took place on 2 November 2014. In the election, it received strong support from voters, taking first place in the number of votes… 69.42 percent of the total votes. On 21 February 2015, the first all-Republic Congress of the organisation took place, during which I V Plotnitsky won re-election as Chairman. Deputy Chairman of the Movement is G N Tsypkalov, the Deputy Chairman for Work with the LNR Peoples Soviet is A V Karyakin (the Chairman of the LNR Peoples Soviet).

  • IED: Improvised Explosive Device, the bubbas call them “hillbilly mines”, just like they call the improvised armour on Hummvees “hillbilly armour”
