Today, media contacts in the DNR Peoples Soviet told us that orphaned kids from the families of KIA DNR servicemembers arrived for a holiday in Kronshtadt in the Russian Federation, saying, “On 2 June, ten of our kids went to St Petersburg and Kronshtadt for a two-week holiday. They’ll be there for about a week. It’s not clear whether any further groups will go there in future, but the Kronshtadt Naval Cathedral International Charity Fund (MBF KMS) plans to continue to coöperate with the DNR authorities”. On 29 May, Andrei Kononov, the General Director of the MBF KMS reported, “About 300 kids will go on two-week holidays in Kronshtadt this year. They’ll not only see Kronshtadt, but also visit many treasures of St Petersburg, including the Ermitazh, the State Russian Museum, and the Petropavlovsk Fortress. We also plan visits to the zoological museum and planetarium. In addition, with parental consent, we’ll hold medical clinical diagnostic check-ups for the kids, and give advice on the proper care [of any problems found]”. In the past, the MBF KMS helped people in the DNR. At Easter, it sent St Ioann Kronshtadtsky parish in Donetsk a new iconostas to replace one destroyed in the fighting and gave the parish new liturgical utensils.

Russia welcomes DNR kids on holiday and intends to treat their wounds (physical, mental, and emotional) gratis… now, that’s Christianity. The USA bombs kids (not only in Novorossiya, but in Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Gaza, Afghanistan, and Pakistan too) and steals from them to enrich the Affluent Effluent. Ted Cruz calls that Christianity. I seem to think that one of these things is not like the other! I’m not alone in thinking that…

11 March 2011. Sergei Yolkin’s World: Let There Be Snow!

Let There be Snow!

Sergei Yolkin



On the right, one sees the spire of the Petropavlovsky Sobor, the burial place of the Russian tsars from Pyotr Veliki up to Tsar Aleksandr Aleksandrovich. That’s one HEAVY snowfall…


One can compare the amount of snowfall this winter in St Petersburg to the amount of rain that fell in the biblical flood, said Lev Karlin, the Rector of the Russian State Hydrometeorological University (RGTMU). Last winter (2009-10), when snow and ice removal in the city caused many complaints from citizens, the authorities called it an abnormal amount of snowfall. There were several heavy storms over a month’s time, and city workers removed more than 2.2 metres of snow. This December and January were also very snowy; there were several serous emergencies in the city as a result, which aroused wide public interest. However, the authorities believed that the cleanup crews were doing a much better job of clearing the city than they did last year.
