18 October 2018. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky… Kerch

__________________

If you reflect on the subject of a tragedy, when a teenager or anyone else arms themselves with a gun and starts to commit mass murder, one way or another, you can start to discern the reasons if you look hard enough. You can find not only those on the surface that are manifest and plain, but also deeper meanings. Where does this demonic rationalisation come from, when someone living in society methodically prepares to take the lives of others, to cause horrible suffering to all those affected by the consequences of his acts? He acquires a gun, to go to do what he will. He strokes it and checks it out. He counts out his ammo, each of which ends in mutilated flesh and human suffering. He adds nuts nod screws [to his bomb], which will spew out with great speed at the time of the explosion, wanting to see the blast spin all those into fear for their innocent lives. Something in this is possessed and demonic. It feels like the world accumulates in itself evil to the brim, but it just keeps on accumulating… yesterday in Columbine, today in Kerch, tomorrow… who knows what town.

Politicians of all kinds easily threaten whole countries, promising a great deal of bloodshed for whatever reason. Who’s stronger and bolder… just give the command to kill! Movies, games, reading, and other media products have long since gone to hell. However, only when our kids start to die at the hands of scumbag losers do we only just begin to look for reasons. An infernal grudge that crawled out of hell grips the world. It climbed into our screens, monitors, thoughts, conversations, books, and daily life. Someone takes a weapon and goes to carry out their dark plans without thinking and not being able to understand the consequences. Apparently, his soul went crazy; he’s doomed then. Apparently, somebody set them up and led them to the abyss. Moreover, even if the perpetrator remains human, then, someone who’s no longer human probably likely drove him to the edge. We who live on this planet still have a chance to figure out how to change this… as we cry along with the weeping families of Kerch.

Vitaly Podvitsky Masterskaya Karikatury

Facebook

Editor:

Vitaly Podvitsky is the editorial cartoonist for RIA and Sputnik. He usually doesn’t write so much, so it means that this affected him on a deep level. Take a care not to rush to judgement. It may be that a lone gunman was part of the mix, if not the whole story. Equally, foreign special services aren’t above using twisted individuals. Most of my Russian friends think that an American/junta sabotage group wanted to attack the Kerch Bridge, but found it too well defended. They then sought a softer target and befriended a twisted sort. It’s plausible, but I’d want to see some evidence, and if the Russians do find evidence they probably wouldn’t make it public… you don’t reveal to your foe what you know about them.

We probably will never know the full story, for a multitude of reasons. Yet, the author is correct… evil is afoot… much of it in “religious” vesture. Do be wary, not all that seems fair is. That’s especially true in America, where Evangelicalism masquerades as Christianity and has stolen the podium to such an extent that it’s the greatest impetus to evil and unbelief in our society. Have a care… the times aren’t good.

Breaking News… Possible Terakt in Kerch… No Real Details Yet

__________________

An explosion occurred today in a technical college in Kerch, in the Crimea. At first, the cops thought that it was an accidental explosion, perhaps, of a gas line, but they found traces of explosives. WE DON’T KNOW WHO’S BEHIND THIS TERAKT.

WE DON’T KNOW. 

As with all such incidents, reports are conflicting and at odds with one another, it’ll take some 24 to 48 hours for the real story to emerge. What we can say at this time is that 10 to 13 people died, 50 had various levels of injury, and 25 of them went to hospital. Some witnesses reported seeing masked men on the campus firing weapons and some reports state that a bomber committed suicide. It wouldn’t surprise me to find out that the Americans were behind this (again). It’s the kind of violent theatre that these feral and heedless juveniles are prone to. One of my Russian friends speculated:

They probably wanted to attack the bridge, but the security was too tight. The school was a soft target in comparison.

This, too, makes much sense, as the Americans have a propensity to attack innocent civilians. However, I’ll repeat… we don’t have the full details yet. Things will sort out in due order. What remains is a tragedy… reflect on the fact that the Americans don’t care how many innocents die… that’s just “collateral damage”, dontcha know…

Want to Try Some Russian Wine?

________________________

Russia is home to historic wineries although few bottles end up on tables in the west. However, with exports beginning to flow out, there’s an increasing chance that people in the wider world will come to know and love Russian wine as much as many locals do.

Among the most storied wineries in Russia is Massandra in the Crimean city of Yalta on the Black Sea. Knyaz Lev Golitsyn first opened the winery in 1894. Like much private property in Russia, the Soviets nationalised the winery. However, unlike many wine producers in the USSR, the Massandra vineyards remained open even during Gorbachyov’s war on drinking in the late 1980s. Today, Massandra looks to export more wine in spite of threats from the Ukrainian régime, who whine about everything from a recent auction of Massandra’s valuable vintage bottles to the fact the winery still operates. However, that didn’t stop President Putin and his friend former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi from sharing a bottle of wine said to be worth 90,000 USD (5.1 million Roubles. 613,000 Renminbi. 5.8 million INR. 122,000 CAD. 121,000 AUD. 80,000 Euros. 70,000 UK Pounds).

Recently, the Alma Valley Winery, a younger Crimean winery, won top awards at an Italian wine festival. Crimean wine country is a popular destination for people throughout Russia. You can book a visit to Massandra by visiting their website or getting in touch on +7 (3654) 35-24-38 or office@massandra.su. To visit the Alma Valley Winery, contact them via their website or ring them up on +7 36554–9–19–79. Alternatively, you can send them an email at, office@alma-valley.ru.
