Today is Forgiveness Sunday

00-dnr-zhuravko-forgiveness-260217

Please forgive! 

If they ask for and seek forgiveness from the soul and you answer with forgiveness, as hidden sin burdens and injures the soul, your life won’t be in turmoil! On this last day of Maslenitsa… give forgiveness!

_____________________________________

Dear Friends!

Today is Forgiveness Sunday. I ask everyone I’ve wronged to forgive me; let’s bury all our disputes and misunderstandings. Let’s show kindness, to bring comfort our souls. I ask all of you to go to your loved ones to ask them for forgiveness; those who forgive will receive forgiveness. Let universal peace and happiness reign amongst us!

Thanks,

Aleksei Zhuravko

Aleksei Zhuravko is one of the patriot leaders in the Donbass. Never forget that the Peoples Republics rest on the double foundation of Socialism and Orthodox Christianity. The Uniate aggressors, on the other hand, believe in Oligarch Capitalism and Western Heterodoxy. You may support one or the other, but not both. I think that it’s no mystery where my sympathies lie.

Click here for a bio of F N Glinka, one of the Decembrists. He was in prison for only a short time for his revolutionary ties (less than a year); Fyodor Nikolayevich remained an active public figure until his death in his 80s. In his 70s, he organised charitable work in Tver, including soup kitchens and craft schools for the poor.

25 February 2017. A Tale of Two Images… Why It Pays to Vet EVERYTHING

Here’s the original image… it’s all over the web…

Here’s the version circulating on the RuNet… it’s very popular there, too

I always vet my images, for I’ve found that often a viral image comes from a different source. That is, many viral images on the RuNet aren’t Russian in origin (as the above image illustrates). In most cases, there’s no intent to deceive or mislead, only a desire to share a striking or funny image. However, vetting is a good habit to get into… otherwise, you could believe the rot published in the NYT or WaPo or WSJ or Fox or CNN… when it’s mostly “fake news” pushing the oligarch POV. I always check American media stories against local media outlets; usually, it doesn’t pass the “smell test” (Rod Dreher and Sofiya Kishkovskaya are prime examples, from both ends of the ideological spectrum). Have a care… there are deceivers out there… most of them are “respectable”… they DO have an agenda (and they all have paymasters with definitely nefarious goals).

Zakharchenko: Federalisation is Now Off the Table

00 A V zakharchenko. 02.05 (1)

_______________________________

DNR Head of State A V Zakharchenko said on a Rossiya-24 broadcast:

In 2014, we were ready to discuss federalisation within the Ukraine, but in 2015-16 and in 2017, there was too much bloodshed for us to think of coming back into the Ukraine. We can discuss common relations as two independent states, relations as good neighbours, and so on. However, neither my confrères nor I want to rejoin the Ukraine. There’s too much hostility. We fight for independence. Our people couldn’t agree with the Maidan propaganda in 2014. If we didn’t resist, they’d break our character, betray our ancestors’ memory, and (most importantly) the result would’ve been the same… they’d slaughter us as those who have a strong faith in Russia. We stand with the Russian World; we’re part of the Russian World.

Earlier, Zakharchenko promised to consider renaming the Donetsk airport after the fallen hero-commanders A S Pavlov (“Motorola”) and M S Tolstykh (“Givi”) and to erect monuments to their memory.
