Archbishop Chrysostomos of Cyprus Sez: “We Should Withdraw from the Union”

01a Chrysostomos Kirill 01.11


Archbishop Chrysostomos Demetriou of Nova Justiniana and all Cyprus said that his country should withdraw from the EU, as the EU would cease to exist in the future, as its coming apart. Vladyki Chrysostomos said in an interview with Pervy Kanal (Первый канал: Channel One), “Currently, the economies of Spain, Portugal, and Italy are in danger. If the Italian economy goes down, just like our economy, the EU won’t withstand it. The people who rule the EU, particularly, those making decisions in the so-called troika, don’t understand many things; that’ll lead to the collapse of the EU. This is why I believe we [Cyprus] should withdraw from the union before the collapse takes place”.

On Monday, the finance ministers of the 17-nation Eurozone agreed to a 10-billion Euro (399 billion Roubles. 12.9 billion USD. 8.5 billion UK Pounds) deal for Cyprus to rescue the island nation and its oversized banking sector from financial collapse. The new deal forces the holders of accounts of over 100,000 Euros (3.99 million Roubles. 128,400 USD. 84,300 UK Pounds) to take losses that could amount to 30 to 40 percent of their deposits. The ministers expect the new deal to yield some 4.2 billion Euros (137.5 billion Roubles. 5.4 billion USD. 3.5 billion UK Pounds) to allow Cyprus, which is currently teetering on the brink of default, to obtain 10 billion Euros in financial aid from the troika of international lenders. The so-called troika of creditors are the International Monetary Fund, the European Commission, and the ECB.

14 October 2012. Sergei Yolkin’s World. A Nobel for Europa

A Nobel for Europa

Sergei Yolkin



Here, Yolkin mines ancient Greek mythology for a laugh. It’s a very famous image, The Abduction of Europa by Zeus. Many famous painters have used this theme… Yolkin adds a smartphone and a leering Zeus (he’s the bull; the dolphin is usually part of the traditional depiction). The Russian can be read as either “Europe” or “Europa”… I used the latter to make the link to the image obvious.


At a ceremony in Oslo, former Norwegian Prime Minister Thorbjørn Jagland, the Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, announced that the EU won the Nobel Peace Prize for 2012 for its work for the unification of Europe and its transformation of a “continent of wars into a continent of peace”.

Editor’s Note:

The EU is in the deep doo-doo… that’s the only reason that the Nobel Committee would award the Nobel Peace Prize to an organisation. The Western ruling élite is desperately trying to prop up the EU, which is fragmenting at its seams. Germany is being its domineering and arrogant self… that was the real reason for most of Europe hating and mistrusting it in the period of the Great European War (that’s World Wars I and II, kids). The EU was nothing more than a mechanism to integrate the European economies under German direction… that’s why it’s doomed to ultimate failure. If the Wehrmacht couldn’t hold together the Greater German economic space, well, the EU shall have no better luck.

This is good news for Eurosceptics. It does bring Russian dominance on the Continent closer (most Europeans prefer lax and lazy Russian dominion to over-exact and overbearing German control… what Orwell called “Eurasia” in Nineteen Eighty-Four), and it’ll drive Britain into a closer embrace of the Anglosphere (USA, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand… what Orwell called “Oceania“). Watch for Ireland to embrace the Continent, though… the Irish don’t see themselves as Anglos, even though they speak English.
