26 April 2014. The Choice Facing Ukrainians…

00 The Truth of the Matter. 26.04.14

______________________________

Ukrainians must choose one or the other… the EU or the Eurasian Economic Community (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Armenia, to begin with). The first will rape them and destroy their industry… the second would rebuild them. Will Ukrainians choose a brighter future as part of a Eurasian community or a living hell as Western slaves? That’s what the present crisis is all about…

29 October 2013. RIA-Novosti Infographics. Gasoline Prices in Europe: Country Rankings

00 RIA-Novosti Infographics. Gasoline Prices in Europe. Country Rankings. 2013

______________________________

Russia was one of the three countries with the lowest fuel prices in Europe, finishing in 31st place, only Belarus and Kazakhstan had cheaper gas prices. To learn more about the changes in the cost of fuel in the third quarter of 2013, consult our infographic.

Norway still leads the pack with the most expensive gasoline. As evidenced by an analysis by experts, the cost of 95-octane gasoline converted into Russian Roubles at the beginning of October 2013 in Norway averaged 81.5 Roubles (2.54 USD. 2.66 CAD. 2.68 AUD. 1.85 Euros, 1.58 UK Pounds) per litre. Economically-ravaged Italy is in second place, at 76 Roubles (2.36 USD. 2.47 CAD. 2.50 AUD. 1.72 Euros, 1.48 UK Pounds) per litre of petrol. The Netherlands, one of the top refiners in Europe, rounds out the top three. The cost of 95-octane gasoline in there at the beginning of October was 75 Roubles (2.33 USD. 2.45 CAD. 2.47 AUD. 1.70 Euros, 1.45 UK Pounds) per litre.

At the other end of the rankings, the lowest prices were in oil-producing Kazakhstan, where a litre of 95-octane gasoline cost 29.5 Roubles (0.92 USD. 0.96 CAD. 0.97 AUD. 0.67 Euros, 0.57 UK Pounds). In second-to-last place was Belarus, where petrol cost 32.2 Roubles (1.00 USD. 1.05 CAD. 1.06 AUD. 0.73 Euros, 0.63 UK Pounds) per litre. Economic problems in Belarus led to it losing the position of having the cheapest fuel, a spot it held for some time. Russia rounded out the final three, with an average price of 95-octane gasoline at 32.7 roubles (1.02 USD. 1.07 CAD. 1.08 AUD. 0.74 Euros, 0.64 UK Pounds) per litre, taking 31st place in the ranking. The cheapest diesel fuel was in Kazakhstan, Russia, and Belarus, as well.

14 October 2014. Only in Russia! If You Wanna Fly Into Space… You Gotta Go to Russia!

00 European Space Agency cosmonaut Samantha Cristoforetti. Star City RUSSIA. 14.10.13

______________________________

European Space Agency cosmonaut Samantha Cristoforetti prepares for a training exercise in a centrifuge at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre in Zvyozdny Gorodok in Moscow Oblast. Cristoforetti is scheduled to be a part of a mission to the International Space Station in November 2014. The USA has to shoot its cosmonauts into space from Baikonur, because the USA wasted its space exploration dollars on pointless wars of aggression on the Afro-Eurasian mainland and shameless tax giveaways to the Affluent Effluent (Wet Willy Romney deserved to be bustin’ rocks for tax evasion, not running for US President… sheesh!). You see, there’s a cost to unpatriotic Me-First Republican obstructionism. American cosmonauts have to go to Russia to fly into space. Am I the only person to see something wrong with that picture? If you support the Republican Party, you oppose America’s independent role in space… all so that some lazy investor can go to the country club and buy a cheesy poorly-made McMansion (unerneath the glitzy exterior is nothing but a cheap plyboard frame on a concrete slab built by unskilled labour… a disaster in the making… an apt metaphor for Republican greed and stuidity). What a buncha maroons!

Tourists Spend Night on Tree Escaping Bear in Montenegro

01 bear at table

______________________________

Local news website CdM reported that a man from Kazakhstan and a woman from the Ukraine, who were both on a bicycle tour across south Montenegro, were forced to spent a night in a tree saving to escape from a bear. On Thursday, police and residents of Virpazar went on a search and rescue mission after the two tourists used to their mobile to call a friend, saying that they were in a tree in a nearby forest hiding from a bear. The search lasted for several hours, complicated by the fact that the tourists’ mobile went dead, then, the cops decided to take a break. Ultimately, both travellers emerged safe and unhurt in Vilpazar on their bicycles. The website added that the Montenegrin government strongly advised tourists against travelling without a local guide in remote areas.
