OFFICIAL Nativity Address of LNR Head of State I V Plotnitsky

00 igor plotnitsky 060116



Dear compatriots! Brothers and sisters!

With great joy, I greet you on the Nativity of Christ!

It reminds us of the spiritual springs and lighthouses that united our people over the centuries, helping them to overcome the most serious trials, indicating to them the correct way of life, and bringing peace and good things to our society and families. Moreover, it awakens in us the best feelings, inspiring us to good deeds. It’s Christmas Eve, so, I ordered that the Ukrainian POWs in our hands could go home. I confide that the light of the Star of Bethlehem and our Christmas prayers might prompt the Kiev régime to issue a decent reply. We’re ready to resolve all differences at the negotiating table, without bloodshed, without any maternal sorrow or children’s tears. I always keep in mind that the Donbass is the home of many nationalities and faiths… we all work together for the good of our motherland. Our spiritual unity in spite of our external diversity is a singular achievement, a sign of our strength. Together, we overcame trials and rejoiced in each other’s holidays. We’re not just inhabitants… we’re a people, a people of a free Republic!

From the depths of my soul, I sincerely wish you all good health, peace, prosperity and generous help from above in your charitable deeds! Let the joy of the coming of the Saviour into the world always accompany you everywhere!

13 December 2015. This is What I Hold on “Happy Holidays”

00 happy holidays christian 131215


No doubt, you’ve heard “conservative” asshats in the Church bloviate on “Pro-Life”, how the Church is under persecution, and how we should bring all sorts of Episkie and “Evangelical” fancies into Church practise. It’s time to end all that. The Church is about the Incarnation and the Resurrection, not obsession with what are, at worst, sins of the flesh (note well that those who fixate on homosexuality and abortion never attack greed and the love of money… the “root of all evil” according to Scripture).

NEVER listen to konvertsy with their demented social rants, disordered political bloviations, or rancid theological ruminations. Most konvertsy priests are shake n’ bakes without proper Orthodox formation… you may safely disregard everything that they say or recommend. They HATE “Happy Holidays” and regurgitate the current “Evangelical” lunacy on the topic. If someone wishes me “Happy Holidays”, I smile, and say, “To you and yours, too”. You can tell a “conservative” phoney right away… they’re the ones running about shouting on how the Church is under persecution and how it’s going to just get worse. Such people are liars… they’re liars with an AGENDA. They worship Almighty Mammon and commune at the altar of the Almighty Dollar. They bow down before Exceptional America and have sworn themselves to the service of the Affluent Effluent. DO NOT ARGUE WITH THEM. They won’t listen… but do oppose them. Oppose them with all your God-given talents.

God wills it…

4 December 2015. Give a Gift of Joy for Christmas… Season’s Greetings from the MP Department of Church Charity and Social Services

I combined two separate demots… they shared the central image in common… one had the upper words only, the other only had the lower words. I did my best to match the English typefaces with the Cyrillic ones.

Do something charitable this holiday season… we’re Christians, that’s what we do…
