18 October 2018. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky… Kerch

__________________

If you reflect on the subject of a tragedy, when a teenager or anyone else arms themselves with a gun and starts to commit mass murder, one way or another, you can start to discern the reasons if you look hard enough. You can find not only those on the surface that are manifest and plain, but also deeper meanings. Where does this demonic rationalisation come from, when someone living in society methodically prepares to take the lives of others, to cause horrible suffering to all those affected by the consequences of his acts? He acquires a gun, to go to do what he will. He strokes it and checks it out. He counts out his ammo, each of which ends in mutilated flesh and human suffering. He adds nuts nod screws [to his bomb], which will spew out with great speed at the time of the explosion, wanting to see the blast spin all those into fear for their innocent lives. Something in this is possessed and demonic. It feels like the world accumulates in itself evil to the brim, but it just keeps on accumulating… yesterday in Columbine, today in Kerch, tomorrow… who knows what town.

Politicians of all kinds easily threaten whole countries, promising a great deal of bloodshed for whatever reason. Who’s stronger and bolder… just give the command to kill! Movies, games, reading, and other media products have long since gone to hell. However, only when our kids start to die at the hands of scumbag losers do we only just begin to look for reasons. An infernal grudge that crawled out of hell grips the world. It climbed into our screens, monitors, thoughts, conversations, books, and daily life. Someone takes a weapon and goes to carry out their dark plans without thinking and not being able to understand the consequences. Apparently, his soul went crazy; he’s doomed then. Apparently, somebody set them up and led them to the abyss. Moreover, even if the perpetrator remains human, then, someone who’s no longer human probably likely drove him to the edge. We who live on this planet still have a chance to figure out how to change this… as we cry along with the weeping families of Kerch.

Vitaly Podvitsky Masterskaya Karikatury

Facebook

Editor:

Vitaly Podvitsky is the editorial cartoonist for RIA and Sputnik. He usually doesn’t write so much, so it means that this affected him on a deep level. Take a care not to rush to judgement. It may be that a lone gunman was part of the mix, if not the whole story. Equally, foreign special services aren’t above using twisted individuals. Most of my Russian friends think that an American/junta sabotage group wanted to attack the Kerch Bridge, but found it too well defended. They then sought a softer target and befriended a twisted sort. It’s plausible, but I’d want to see some evidence, and if the Russians do find evidence they probably wouldn’t make it public… you don’t reveal to your foe what you know about them.

We probably will never know the full story, for a multitude of reasons. Yet, the author is correct… evil is afoot… much of it in “religious” vesture. Do be wary, not all that seems fair is. That’s especially true in America, where Evangelicalism masquerades as Christianity and has stolen the podium to such an extent that it’s the greatest impetus to evil and unbelief in our society. Have a care… the times aren’t good.

Breaking News… Possible Terakt in Kerch… No Real Details Yet

__________________

An explosion occurred today in a technical college in Kerch, in the Crimea. At first, the cops thought that it was an accidental explosion, perhaps, of a gas line, but they found traces of explosives. WE DON’T KNOW WHO’S BEHIND THIS TERAKT.

WE DON’T KNOW. 

As with all such incidents, reports are conflicting and at odds with one another, it’ll take some 24 to 48 hours for the real story to emerge. What we can say at this time is that 10 to 13 people died, 50 had various levels of injury, and 25 of them went to hospital. Some witnesses reported seeing masked men on the campus firing weapons and some reports state that a bomber committed suicide. It wouldn’t surprise me to find out that the Americans were behind this (again). It’s the kind of violent theatre that these feral and heedless juveniles are prone to. One of my Russian friends speculated:

They probably wanted to attack the bridge, but the security was too tight. The school was a soft target in comparison.

This, too, makes much sense, as the Americans have a propensity to attack innocent civilians. However, I’ll repeat… we don’t have the full details yet. Things will sort out in due order. What remains is a tragedy… reflect on the fact that the Americans don’t care how many innocents die… that’s just “collateral damage”, dontcha know…

Russian Military Medics Vaccinate Syrian Refugees to Prevent Epidemics

______________________________

Russian military medical personnel are treating residents in Umm-al-Tiur in Syria’s Hama Governorate who returned to their homes after the end of hostilities. Military doctor Vyacheslav Bolshakov told reporters:

The people in the specified community may be at risk of endemic typhoid and viral hepatitis A. We’re administering typhoid and hepatitis A vaccines to civilians. Initially, we worked with the administration and the mayor. They conducted an outreach campaign, addressing people with the need, and we carried out the vaccinations.

The terrorists failed to reach central Umm-al-Tiur during military operations but carried out regular attacks on the community, badly damaging the electric and water supply systems. The local authorities are restoring the infrastructure with support from Russian specialists, who are gathering samples for analysis in order to evaluate the serviceability of the water system and delousing the city yards and streets. Russian military medical personnel and local authorities are carrying out outreach activities and establishing vaccinating centres to avoid epidemics. As many as 27 communities in the southern de-escalation zone in Quneitra, as-Suwayda, and Daraa Governorates joined the ceasefire and sided with the Syrian government over the past week due to negotiations conducted by the Russian Reconciliation Centre for the Opposing Sides.
