The Anglo sanctions against Russia backfired. All that they did was to bring the Russian people together behind President Putin and they urged them to make up all shortfalls using domestic production. In short, the Anglos fucked up royally… they hurt themselves and their European allies and strengthened Russia and its friends. Baba shows the way! “All those who march on Russia with sword in hand, by that sword shall they die!” St Aleksandr Nevsky said that in the 13th century… it’s still true today. Do ya wanna find out, Anglos?

27 March 2016. Happy Easter to All My Friends Keeping Western Easter

Khristos Voskrese Easter Bunny

______________________________

This is a turn-of-the-20th-century Russian Easter greeting card. My, my, my… it’s got an Easter Bunny… with eggs! Of course, there were many RCs and Lutherans in the old empire (along with a generous sprinkling of Mennonites and native Russian Baptists)… so, some of their imagery influenced the larger Russian Orthodox culture (it worked the other way ’round, too!). People were tolerant of one another… they wished each other well on their respective holidays. We should do likewise… we’re Christians; that’s what we do…

Have a happy and most blessed holiday. I bow before you in respect…
