Does Russia Force Underage Girls to Take Virginity Tests? Western Media Says “Yes”, Reality Says “Nope”

_________________________

This is much like the story on alleged gay concentration camps run by Kadyrov in Chechnya. It’s 100 percent pure unadulterated unalloyed bullshit. Nothing more need be said on the matter… read it and see how stupid Western liberals are. They really believe this shit.

Did you know that Russian doctors are required by law to check the “integrity” of each and every young Russian hymen, and then report any signs of sexual activity to the police? We didn’t know either! Until of course, we read this brave report published by the Independent:

Doctors in Russia have reportedly been instructed to perform virginity tests on underage girls. […] Health Minister Vladimir Shuldyakov said doctors must follow the order and “inform police about all cases when virginity was lost as well as about cases of pregnancies and abortions involving girls under 16-years-old”. The order instructs doctors to check the “integrity of the hymen” and look for signs of damage.

Where to begin? Well, for starters… Russia’s Health Minister is V I Skvortsova. This Vladimir guy is the health minister of Saratov Oblast, which is sort of like being the head health honcho of Tumbleweed NE. Amazingly, even the garbage Daily Mail article cited by the Independent managed to correctly identify Shuldyakov as the Health Minister of a small region of Russia. However, the Independent simply refers to him as “Health Minister Vladimir Shuldyakov”; Saratov isn’t even mentioned in the Independent’s report. Also, Shuldyakov cancelled his order three days before the Independent published its hymen horror story:

Minister of Health of the Saratov Oblast Vladimir Shuldyakov cancelled his order, according to which doctors were obliged to inform the police about cases of deprivation of virginity and pregnancy of schoolgirls, the head of the press service of the regional Ministry of Health, Aleksandr Kolokolov, told RIA Novosti.

Will the Independent correct its story? Or, at least “update” it? Of course not. Friends… we’re reaching levels of bullshit that’d make William Randolph Hearst blush. He’s the creep who invented the modern “save the young girls from the savages!” tabloid story. So just to recap, the Independent:

  1. Portrayed a provincial official as Russia’s top health official
  2. Reported on an “order” that was cancelled three days prior

What we enjoy most about this hilariously 100 percent false story is that the Independent cited a tabloid… and then somehow managed to make the story even more wrong. Say what you will, but that requires “skill sets”.

Masters of Absurd Propaganda: USA Continues to Lie About Ukrainian Crisis

00 lugansk pr war damage 060815

______________________________

American publicist Eric Zuesse remarked that American propaganda is “so ridiculous, no intelligent and informed person would give it any serious consideration whatsoever. It insults the public’s intelligence”. He emphasised that the entire case for Western sanctions against Russia is a pure lie, nailing the Obama administration for what he called its blatant propaganda and sheer hypocrisy. Zuesse referred to the US State Department’s “Ukraine Travel Warning” issued on 16 July aimed at preventing American tourists from travelling to the Eastern Ukraine and the Crimea. Apparently aimed at frightening the US tourists out of their wits, the “warning” claimed that “individuals, including US citizens, have been threatened, detained or kidnapped for hours or days after being stopped” at checkpoints in Donetsk and Lugansk. It also warned Americans against visiting the Crimea as “the Russian Federation maintains an extensive military presence”.

The Obama administration obviously doesn’t care that the reality on the ground differs tremendously from what it’s saying. US officials also remain silent about the fact that before Washington intervened in Kiev’s domestic affairs, the Ukraine was a unified and democratic country. Zuesse pointed up, “Obama… replaced the existing Ukrainian President, V F Yanukovich, who, like all of his predecessors, was corrupt; and the US propaganda-machine publicised his corruption, virtually ignoring the fact of corruption’s normalcy in at least the post-Soviet Ukraine (corruption greatly encouraged by the USA). The USA didn’t replace him because he was corrupt. The USA replaced him because he supported a non-aligned Ukraine… neither a stooge to the USA nor to Russia”. However, a non-aligned Ukraine wasn’t exactly what Washington needed.

American activist Chris Ernesto wrote in 2014 that, remarkably, the American political establishment (most notably, Zbigniew Brzezinski) “mapped out” the battle plan for the Ukraine decades ago. Ernesto quoted Brzezinski’s 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard:

The Ukraine, a new and important space on the Eurasian chessboard, is a geopolitical pivot because its very existence as an independent country helps to transform Russia… However, if Moscow regains control over the Ukraine, with its 52 million people and major resources as well as access to the Black Sea, Russia automatically again regains the wherewithal to become a powerful imperial state, spanning Europe and Asia.

So far, Washington has desperately tried to bring the Ukraine into its fold. Eventually, in November 2013, the USA instigated a standoff with the Ukrainian government, the so-called “Euromaidan”, which then turned into a “blatant” coup. American analyst Brandon Turbeville wrote in April 2015, “[E]arly on, there were individuals in the Ukrainian government who recognised that there was an international and NATO-centred plot at work in their country, designed to overthrow the President and other elected officials using ‘swarming adolescents’ and other more violent elements of protest and destabilisation”.

The Crimea’s secession from Ukraine, as well as the unwillingness of the Ukraine’s former eastern regions to recognise the illegitimate junta obviously contradicted American plans. Zuesse noted that, thus far, “the US State Department rejects the legitimacy of the overwhelming, and the repeatedly polling-confirmed, desire of the Crimean people to cease being Ukrainian (which they had been only from 1954 to 2014). As for the residents of the Donbass, Obama needs to get rid of them, because they voted over 90 percent for the man he overthrew. If they stay alive and within the Ukraine, then, the régime that Obama installed will get voted out of office”. Zeusse remarked that the irony of the situation is that V V Putin wants the Donbass to remain a part of the Ukraine, whilst Obama doesn’t want them to return to the Ukrainian fold. Furthermore, whilst the Kremlin urges the Ukrainian government, the EU, and the USA to follow the Minsk II Accord, the Obama administration goes even so far as to claim that Russia “has ignored the opportunity to resolve the crisis in the Ukraine diplomatically”. Zeusse observed, “A more devilishly lying country than the USA of today is hard to imagine. It’s even a dictatorship… its government represents not the public (as its founders had intended) but its aristocracy (which those founders had tried to overthrow… and did overthrow, in their own era)”, adding that meanwhile Washington continues to try to fool public opinion.

Orthodox people… we have to face a disturbing fact. We have elements within us that support and aid the opponents of Holy Rus and the Holy Church. Of course, some are obvious, such as Potapov, Paffhausen, and Dreher… conscious and unrepentant supporters of the ravening Republican aggressors against the Motherland. The Republicans have LIED in a major way about the Rodina since 1946 (on top of whitewashing Nazis and their accomplices)… it’s nothing new for them. Many Establishment Dems joined them in Truman’s time… most of the rest jumped on the Russophobic bandwagon after 1991. Only one American politician has the potential to break this stranglehold…

Bernie Sanders…

If Senator Sanders is sincere in his programme, and I believe that he is, then, the only way that he can pay for it is to halt the present spiralling warmongering in foreign parts. That’s the choice… perpetual warfare or social justice at home. Here’s the sad part for Orthodox people… most konvertsy align themselves with the Republican opponents of Holy Rus (and opponents of justice in America) on the grounds of “Pro-Life”… I kid you not. These immature brats have placed abortion and homosexuality at the centre of their faith… they’re obsessed with them. However, the Church doesn’t wave placards or march in rallies… it prays. That’s what it does, but that doesn’t satisfy these former-Proddie simpletons. They support those who urge on the murderers of our priests and children, all because such pigs are “anti-abortion”. That’s upside down! That’s Jabberwockian! However, they swallow American Exceptionalism wholesale… shall they stay within a group that’s consciously “Russian Orthodox?” I don’t know… but they’re enablers for those who kill, destroy, and brutalise… some “Pro-Life” that…

Yes… there’s propaganda… but that’s not as bad as those who repudiate reality for their manufactured simulacrum thereof. We face the latter… it’s much more insidious and much more dangerous. Think on that, Orthodox people…

OFFICIAL Pushilin Refutes Dezinformatsiya about the DNR Peddled by Outside Sources

00 Like I Wuz Tellin' Ya. 19.10.12

______________________________

OFFICIAL

Over the past few days, there’s been a sharp increase in the amount of rumours, gossip, and provocation on the part of different figures regarding the DNR’s political life. For example, Sergei Petrovsky, the so-called ex-chief of DNR Intelligence, who fled the DNR as we caught him stealing, alleged that we’re planning to disband the DNR Minoborony in the near future. This fantasy could only come from someone without understanding of the military situation in the region, or it came from one to whom such a statement might prove advantageous. I’d say that it’s an allegation of someone allied with the Ukrainian side, who helps the SBU, who stands with those who are hostile to our side. Recently, I I Strelkov celebrated the anniversary of the treacherous abandonment of Slavyansk, but it still bothers him that A V Zakharchenko won’t follow his direction. [Zakharchenko] is doing whatever it takes, regardless of the cost to his life and health, to correct this appalling mistake. [According to Strelkov,] everything’s on hold until Aleksandr Vladimirovich sends in his resignation. In all due respect, I want to say to all these “heroes” of Donbass who flew the coop… unlike them, Aleksandr Vladimirovich stays at his post in Donetsk at all times; he shares all the adversity of the DNR’s people.

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

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. Russophobia. 2015

Russophobia

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.

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…
