Mohawk Nation Stands with Russia

00 mohawk warrior. 21.05.14

The above is an Indian warrior of the period of the great wars of France and Britain in the New World in the 18th century. Both British and French militaries learned much of value in light infantry tactics and skirmishing from their Indian allies… American propaganda that British soldiers were ignorant of American conditions is arrant bullshit devoid of any truth… after all, they DID listen to the Kanienkehaka leader Thayendanegea during the War of the American Rebellion. Do notice how silent American history books are on the ruthless Rebel sack of Thayendanegea’s home of Onaquaga.

Corporation of Canada CEO Harper is sending 6 CF18s and other weapons of mass destruction for NATO provocations against our ancient allies in Russia. Russia is legally a long-time ally of the Rotino’shonni:onwe/Iroquois Confederacy and its friends and allies on Great Turtle Island. Our alliance comes from the Kaia’nereh:kowa, our constitution. Treaty belts accepted by Peter the Great in 1710 record this sovereign international agreement of peace. They presented these belts to us for interpretation. According to our constitution, which is always recorded in wampum, and our treaty, we’ll seek all international legal remedies to stop Canada’s violation of the Peace established between Russia and the Onkwehonwe, the true sovereigns on Great Turtle Island.

Canada is conspicuously not attending the present negotiations between Russia, the USA, the EU, and other affected nations. Each party agreed not to supply weapons to the Ukraine. However, Canada is provoking war against our ancient allies by providing fighter jets and other weapons of mass destruction. This treaty alliance predates the corporations of Canada and the USA by more than a century. CEO Harper can’t speak on our behalf. Only we speak for ourselves and our friends and allies. The Corporation of Canada speaks for its shareholders. Like all corporations, Canada exists for one reason, to give ever-growing dividends and to protect their shareholders’ anonymity.

We stand by our Russian allies. There’ll be no war. Consequences will follow for these violations of our ancient alliances and sovereignty. According to international law, it’s our duty to demand that Canada refrain from posturing war against Russia. We Rotinoshonnionwe reaffirm our alliance to spread world peace. We assume our Russian allies who met our grandfathers in 1710 continue to have this on their minds too. These belts were left so that one day we could sit together and discuss them. These treaty belts predate the corporations of Canada and USA and the religion spread by Handsome Lake. We reaffirm this alliance between Russia and the people of the Kaianerekowa, the Great Law of Peace, those who follow the natural laws of this land. A corporation that is masquerading as a sovereign on our land is threatening Russia.

The Anglos stole what is today the USA and Canada… they expect praise for it! I’d say to attend to history… the Anglos never kept a single treaty with native people, so, why does their duplicity vis-à-vis Russia surprise you? They love the Right Sector and Svoboda, as these groups are as violent, greedy, and untruthful as they are. It’s time to push back… in Russia… AND closer to home. However, take a care in how you express yourself, McCarthyism proved that the Americans, in particular, are jumpy and aren’t careful in their repressions. NEVER EVER use language that even implies the overthrow of the US government. You can describe the evil… you can castigate the evil… you can “finger” the criminals… but, please, NEVER call for the overthrow of the US government… they can and will throw you in prison for that… do recall what they did to Eugene V Debs and what they wanted to do to Edward Snowden. Take a care…

Remember Vine Deloria Jr’s words… “I was oppressed as an Indian, I’ll win justice as an Indian, and after I win justice, I’ll call myself whatever I damned well please”. Keep the faith and keep the fires burning…

11 September 2013. RIA-Novosti Infographics. The History of the Russian National Flag

00 RIA-Novosti Infographics. The History of the Russian National Flag. 2013

______________________________

The familiar Russian white-blue-red tricolour wasn’t always the symbol of our country… in the long history of the Russia, the flag changed several times; there was a black-white-yellow flag in the 19th century, and there was the familiar Soviet red banner. We offer you this infographic, which illustrates Russian flags from different historical periods. The Russian tricolour has a more than 300-year history. The Russian national flag appeared in the period between the 17th and 18th centuries, the era that marked the rise of Russia as a great power. The first white-blue-red banner flew over the first modern Russian warship, the frigate Oryol, in 1668, during the reign of Pyotr Veliki’s father Tsar Aleksei Mikhailovich. Pyotr Veliki issued a decree on 20 January 1705 ordering all Russian merchant ships to hoist the white-blue-red flag. Thus, he was the “father” of the modern tricolour, as he sketched out the design, and decided upon the order of the horizontal stripes.

In 1858, Tsar Aleksandr Nikolayevich approved a flag “with black-yellow-white horizontal stripes, to be the Imperial banner, for use for public display on special occasions”. He issued a decree on 1 January 1865 naming the colours black, yellow, and white “the national colours of Russia”. In the USSR, for more than 70 years, the red flag was the national flag. An extraordinary session of the RSFSR Supreme Soviet on 22 August 1991 decided to reinstate the tricolour as the official Russian flag. A Presidential decree of 11 December 1993 formally approved regulations making the white-blue-red banner the State Flag of the Russian Federation. On 25 December 2000, President Vladimir Putin signed a federal law, “On the State Flag of the Russian Federation”. In accordance with the law, the State Flag of the Russian Federation is a rectangular banner of three equal horizontal stripes, white on top, blue in the middle, and red on the bottom. The flag’s ratio is laid down as 2:3, which means that the height is 2/3 of the width.

The Cross of St Andrew will Travel from Greece to Russia, the Ukraine, and Belarus

01-navy-id-tag-from-the-kursk

______________________________

With the blessing of Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias and Archbishop Ieronymos Liapis  of Athens and all Greece, the Foundation of St Andrew the First-Called will bring the Cross of St Andrew to the canonical territory of the MP (Russia, the Ukraine, Belarus) from 11 July to 2 August. On Tuesday, Aleksandr Gatilin, the Press Secretary of the Foundation told Interfax-Religion, “The cross on which Apostle [St Andrew the First-Called] was crucified is kept in the Orthodox cathedral in Patras, in the Greek Peloponnese; it’s a major relic of the Christian world. Bringing this cross, this relic, to Russia is part of the celebration of the 1,025th anniversary of the Baptism of Rus“. Current plans call for the cross to be in St Petersburg from 11 to 15 July, from 16 to 25 July in Moscow, from 26 to 28 July in Kiev, and from 29 July to 2 August in Minsk.

Gatilin went on to say, “Bringing the Cross of St Andrew to St Petersburg, Moscow, Kiev, and Minsk is meant to emphasise that we can trace the spiritual life of these three states (государств) back to a single source… the blessing given by the Apostle Andrew to the Baptism of Rus, which was accomplished at the fount in Kiev in 988″. He noted that the name of Apostle St Andrew the First-Called pops up throughout all of Russian history. For example, Tsar Pyotr Veliki established the Order of St Andrew, the first order of chivalry set up in the Russian Empire; it was the highest state award. In 1998, the Order of St Andrew again became the highest state award of the Russian Federation. Since the time of Pyotr Veliki, the Russian naval ensign has borne a light-blue cross of St Andrew on a white field. The tsar personally determined its appearance… “A white Flag, emblazoned with a light-blue cross of St Andrew, to commemorate that Russia took Holy Baptism from this Apostle.”

The Cross of St Andrew will begin its Russian journey in St Petersburg, the “maritime capital of Russia”. The Foundation wishes to stress that they intended this to remind us that since the foundation of the city on the Neva, Apostle St Andrew was one of its patron saints. St Andrew was the brother of Apostle St Peter, after whom the town was named. Some say that Pyotr Veliki himself placed a golden reliquary with a particle of the relics of the Apostle in the cornerstone of the Petropavlovsk Fortress. The arrival of the Cross of St Andrew will coincide with the 310th anniversary of the Russian Navy and of St Petersburg. Gatilin also said, “Then, we’ll bring the cross to Moscow, Kiev and Minsk… the capitals of the three states where most Russian Orthodox believers live, where spiritual and cultural life traditionally draw upon the heritage of Holy Rus“.

The Cross of St Andrew was in Patras until the time of the Roman Catholic onslaught on Greece in the 13th century (Frankokratia). Then, the Franks removed the relic from Achaea and placed it in a monastery in Marseilles, where, afterwards, in about 1250, it went to another monastery in the same city. During the French Revolution of 1789, revolutionaries threw the cross into a fire to destroy it, but a Catholic priest pulled most of it out of the fire, risking his life to do so. Later, the relic resided in an underground crypt of a monastery in Marseille, contained in a large reliquary. Today, the Cross is in the Cathedral of St Andrew in Patras. Apostle St Andrew the First-Called was crucified at Patras head down. There is a belief that the Cross of St Andrew was X-shaped. According to Church tradition, many believers received healing by touching and praying before the Apostolic cross.

Editor’s Note:

Do note that Mollard‘s going to be in Russia during all of this. This was something that HH NEVER gave Fatso. NEVER. This is a PR Plum of the Highest Order. All of Berzansky’s scheming for his pal “Johnny” (what he and his circle called Fathausen) was for nought… HH saw through him. The Centre is backing Mollard… for now. At present, it’s the only game in town… it’s the pinch of incense that one has to throw on the altar to keep out Dahulich and the Greeks. I prefer Mollard’s bumbling to Dahulich’s scheming… and I do daresay that I’m not alone…

However… is Mollard going to be stupid enough to try to bring Fatso as part of his entourage? It’d explain why so many priests turned him down flat on accompanying him. Mollard’s doltish enough and Lyonyo’s enough of a schemer to try such a stunt. Do watch it, kids… it bids fair to be interesting…

Russian Craftsmen to Recreate Parts of Lost Amber Room

00 Amber Room. Russia. 15.05.13

______________________________

Russian craftsmen in Kaliningrad shall recreate parts of the legendary Amber Room, a Tsarist-era antiquity looted by Nazi Germany during World War II. The restoration plan by the Kaliningrad Oblast government is part of a campaign to stop illegal mining in amber-rich areas near the Baltic coast. The region has the world’s largest-known amber deposits. Experts estimate that criminals mine 60-100 tons of amber illegally every year in Kaliningrad Oblast, which holds more than 90 percent of the world’s total known amber reserves and is home to the world’s only natural amber strip-mine.

King Friedrich I invited German craftsmen to decorate the main hall of his palace with amber panels shortly after his accession to the Prussian throne in 1701. However, after the king’s death in 1713, his son Friedrich Wilhelm I put an end to the expensive work, and put the amber panels on the walls of a small room of the Stadtschloss (City Palace) in Berlin. Three years later, he gave the panels as a present to Tsar Pyotr Veliki, who stored them in his Summer Palace, at Petergof. It was only in 1743 that Tsaritsa Yelizaveta Petrovna decided to use the amber panels to decorate one of her main chambers in the Winter Palace. Craftsmen expanded on the original decorations, eventually turning them into the legendary Amber Room, often referred to as the “eighth wonder of the world”.

The Wehrmacht looted the decorations during World War II, and took them to Königsberg (now Kaliningrad), where they were lost in the fierce fighting and air raids at the end of the war in 1945. Eventually, the Russians only rediscovered two small parts of the room’s decoration and returned them to Russia. According to the Kaliningrad Oblast Culture Minister Svetlana Kondratyeva, the Amber Room replica will be in the 1899 building of the Königsberg State Amber Factory, which, following its renovation, will then house the Kaliningrad Amber Museum. Museum visitors will be able to watch the craftsmen at work replicating the room through glass panels.
