As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky… Run, Run, Run, Run, Run Away, Misha, Run Away!



Mikhail Saakashvili announced his resignation, accompanied by a statement filled with pejorative criticism of the current government in general and of President Poroshenko in particular. He promised to stay in the Ukraine, to continue the political fight with organised crime and corruption…

24 October 2016. Winter is a Comin’ In



The Western sanctions against Russia backfired. Instead of bringing Russia to its knees, all that they did was to wake up Russia and make it determined to outlast the latest outrage from its Western opponents. If you shoot at a bear, it’s best to hit him with the first shot, otherwise, you have one pissed-off and angry beast to deal with. There’s an old Russian proverb:

Before they kill the bear, they divide up the pelt.

That’s an apt description of Anglos, especially, “conservative” filth. They think that they’ve won already. They issue demands as though they’re victors. I’d notice that the Bear is very much alive. He’s not overly happy… he’s been provident and laid supplies in for winter… the only ones hurt by sanctions have been Western farmers and businesses… but the American “liberal” and “conservative” slimers don’t care about that. They get to strut about and boast about how strong and powerful they are! I’d say this… Russians have laid in preserves and stored foods at their dachas, as they always have. Sanctions haven’t hurt ordinary people in the least (the oligarchs did have to give up their imported goodies… poor babies!).

A note on translation… Strano Shary literally means “Country (of) Balls”… I’d rather English it as Balls’ World.

9 September 2016. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky… Pushing a Comrade Into the Abyss



 US Secretary of Defence Ashton Carter boasted:

The position of the USA towards the aggression (sic) against Ukraine remains unwavering, we shall never recognise the annexation of the Crimea, and the unprovoked war in the Donbass against the Ukraine will end in humiliating defeat for Russia.

Well, if nothing else, we don’t push our comrades into the abyss. Indeed, many knowledgeable observers believe that Mr Carter will do just that…

24 July 2016. From the Russian Web… Do You Want Joint Exercises?

00 usa who wants joint exercises 230716


Why are some in Poland, the Baltic States, and the Ukraine no longer so gung-ho about an American alliance? Is it because they’ve come to realise that the Yanks view them not only as their inferiors, but as expendable cannon fodder for Anglo adventuring?
