Germans got a dose of wisdom from Bundeskanzerlin Angela Merkel, but as in the most of the world, the cheerful celebrations turned into a drinking fest.

******

Even Novorossiya paused hostilities to welcome the New Year, for many, it signified a new start. Illuminating shells lit up the sky above Donetsk Airport, instead of the High Explosive shells that became all-too-familiar for the residents there.

A few hours later, hundreds of thousands of people witnessed the best London has to offer over the River Thames as the fireworks display exploded to the midnight bongs of Big Ben.

Rio de Janeiro’s main Copacabana beach is the venue for the country’s biggest New Year party, as it’s practically midsummer at the moment, which is why many partygoers come to Brazil to kick-start their 2015.

This is off the official MVD Rossii website… no lie! It’s a whole lotta fun. It starts off with a clip of a DPSnik (traffic cop) making a routine stop… the vid really picks up at about 0:35… it’s a hip-hop song in English. This is a gas, no matter how you slice it.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I wanted something different for the first post of the year… this is it. Love to all of you!

VOR Presents… Former Berkutovtsy Accepted into OMON with Open Arms… Clear Rebuke to the Poroshenko and His Zapadnik Junta

On 30 May, Interior Minister Colonel General V A Kolokoltsev accepted ten new servicemen of the Special Purpose Centre of the Moscow Directorate of the MVD who were members of the MVDU Berkut spetsnaz unit previously.

The Berkutovtsy confronted radicals in Kiev, until the junta disbanded them at the end of February. The junta tried to accuse 20 Berkutovtsy of shooting at Euromaidan terrorists, but the charges didn’t stick.

After the junta started to persecute the Berkutovtsy, General Kolokoltsev said that they were welcome in Russia, they could join the OMON in their old ranks, and that Russia would see to the needs of their families. President V V Putin said, “The Berkut troopers did their duty faithfully”.

General Kolokoltsev and General Yakunin, the head of the Moscow Directorate of the MVD laid flowers at the memorial to MVD troops who died in the course of their duties.

General Kolokoltsev said that 92 Berkutovtsy are in the process of becoming Russian citizens, he hopes that they’ll have successful future careers. 42 of them have chosen units other than the OMON for their MVD service.

General Kolokoltsev said, “These men are a very competent reinforcement”.

Editor:

The Berkutovtsy embodied COPS (Conscientious Officers Protect and Serve). Because of their training, discipline, cohesion, motivation, and sheer courage, they stood on the Maidan facing the Uniate terrorists, and only fired when they had to. Quite often, they faced violent and unhinged mobs… and stood their ground without killing anyone. These men are exemplars… they’re true men, worthy of all praise and respect. The junta replaced them with Euromaidan trash terrorists with no discipline or training. These sorry sacks o’ shit scuttle over the east like cockroaches… killing people, robbing, and molesting women. I seem to see a difference. The Berkutovtsy incarnated PIG (Pride Integrity Guts)… the junta pigs are just that… pigs. The American media demonised the Berkut… they LOVE the junta thugs… do note that. I’d call it theatre of the absurd…

One last thing… thousands of “Ukrainian” servicemen rallied to Russia, including the former commander of the Ukrainian Navy. NOT A SINGLE Russian or patriot serviceman has gone over to the junta… NONE. It seems to me that’s quite a difference… not reported by outlets of the likes of Radio Liberty and Fox News… fancy that…

9 February 2014. Now, For Something Entirely Different… The MVD Gets Its Funk On!

______________________________

Ya didn’t know that the MVD could get down and get funky? One of the Cabinet wrote me:

I absolutely love their performance. I keep playing it. You won’t see police in the USA with choirs, that’s to be sure! There’s quite a difference between the young officers “getting their funk on” in front and the ramrod-straight older officers.

There’s TWO shades of soul out there… black folks got one kind… Russkies have another… but they do come together, don’t they? After all, real is real… there’s GOOD SHIT out there…
