Americans Remove Russian Paralympic Team From Rio-2016 Using English Toady… S M Mironov Speaks of the Injustice

00 Paralympics. 10.09.12. Gold Medal

You can stand with A V Ashapatov or with the Anglo filth… there’s no doubt about where I stand… I’m NOT alone…

______________________________

International sporting officials attacked the honour of world sport. Suspension of the Russia Paralympic team… it isn’t just spitting at our country… it’s a crime against the entire Olympic Movement. Under false pretences, these rascals, egged on by politicians, not only deprived our athletes the chance of showing off their skills, but they attacked these goodwill ambassadors and heroes, not allowing them to show the limitless possibilities of humanity! The Olympic Charter states that the edifying value of good example, social responsibility, and respect for universal ethical principles undergirds Olympianism. These principles are major symbols of our civilisation; our Paralympians are living proof of their loyalty to them! Admiration of their victories breaks down the centuries-old barriers between people with disabilities and the world around them. What can we say of Olympic sport if these Paralympian-heroes became victims of the whims of heartless bureaucratic rats?

According to the Olympic Charter, persecution of athletes because of politics is unacceptable; it isn’t compatible with the principles of the Olympic Movement. We should hold a large-scale investigation; we should strictly judge these disgraceful sport toadies and remove them from the International Paralympic Committee. Russia must have a voice in this; A Just Russia insists upon it. To all our team… to our Paralympians… I want to tell you that you’re all winners! They’re not allowing you to compete because they know that you show real class and that you glorify your country.

THEY’RE AFRAID OF YOU.

The leading team at the last Paralympics were the Russians. They have ample government support and support from private sources as well. The US government doesn’t fund its team very well or back it as strongly as the Russian team is. Therefore, to increase their medal count, what better means is there than to remove the best team? I know, it’s immoral… but to Anglos, “winning is the only thing”, so, things that are immoral and indecent for other peoples are legit to Anglos. Right now, the Anglos are losing big-time in the political sphere to the Russians and Chinese… ergo, this peevish and unjust action. As for doping… I just saw Alex Rodriguez on the telly… doping is common-garden behaviour in American sport. Methinks that Yanks have no call to be naming other people “dopers”, when they won’t go after it in their own sportsmen.

S M Mironov is the head of A Just Russia (Справедливая Россия: Spravedlivaya Rossiya (SR)), which has 64 seats out of 450 in the RF Gosduma. SR is a social democratic party to the right of the KPRF, but to the left of United Russia. It envisions a tightly-regulated economy where some capitalism exists, but tightly-controlled, with ample social welfare provisions for the population.

Transdniestria Asks for Russian Accession… Are South Ossetia and Abkhazia Next? Gosduma Does a “Mass Moon” of the USA and the EU… Russia and Crimea Sign Accession Treaty

00 Crimea rally. Moscow 01. 19.03.14

Doloi Evromaidantsy! Doloi svini Amerikanskoe! Slava Rossiya! Slava naroda nashemu!

______________________________

On Tuesday, Vedomosti reported that Mikhail Burla, the Chairman of the Supreme Soviet of the Republic of Transdniestria (VS PMR), asked RF Gosduma Chairman Sergei Naryshkin to consider drafting a law that would permit Transdniestria’s possible accession to Russia. The paper, which obtained a copy of the document, wrote, “This request was forwarded in response to A Just Russia Party’s bill that proposes simplifying the procedure for new territories’ accession to Russia, which would allow Russia to admit parts of foreign states without these states’ consent in the absence of ‘effective and legitimate leadership’ in them by referendum results or applications submitted by the authorities of these regions”.

Burla’s message also says that the bill drafted by A Just Russia Party permits only Crimea to become part of Russia, but it doesn’t apply to Transdniestria because one can’t describe the Moldovan authorities of Moldova as totally ineffective. Furthermore, Burla said that Transdniestria would have to hold an appropriate referendum abiding by Moldovan legislation, as the republic has its own laws. He also said that no Moldovan authorities that could ask to join Russia were now present in Transdniestria. Burla pointed up that 97.2 percent of voters chose to rejoin Russia during a referendum in Transdniestria in 2006. Meanwhile, A Just Russia withdrew their bill on 17 March, probably, for redraft. A Just Russia faction First Deputy Chairman Mikhail Yemelyanov told Vedomosti that his bloc would most likely resubmit the document after adjusting it to allow other territories finding themselves in critical situations to become part of Russia.

Editor:

What about South Ossetia and Abkhazia? Remember them? It looks as though the mother hen is calling the chicks home, and the chicks are flocking back! People see that Russia is a better place for them than in the kleptocratic and incompetently ruled successor states. The West fulminates and roars… and accomplishes nothing. The Russian-Chinese alliance is stronger than ever… due to America’s stupid and arrogant moves. The Amerikantsy are so greedy and short-sighted that they don’t realise that a “step back” now would pay handsome dividends in future (and it’s too late to do so now, the damage’s done).

Russia says “No” to fascism… America says “Yes”… Down with Bob Dreyfus of The Nation… you support neo-Nazi filth who stamp their boots full-force into the faces of the helpless (it shows you up as a neoliberal hypocrite and poseur). Dreyfus cackles his approval as fascists attack our culture, our language, and our faith… and he’s all too typical of Amerikantsy.

_______________________________

Sergei Mironov, leader of the A Just Russia party said that he was proud to be on the American sanctions list, telling reporters on Tuesday, “I think that it’s great that they put me on this black list, it means that they’ve noticed my stance on the Crimea. It’s funny that they’ll ‘freeze accounts’. I want to respond by re-phrasing the phrase from The Golden Calf [famous satirical novel by Ilf and Petrov], ‘Keep looking, Shura, keep looking’. I don’t have such accounts; let them introduce sanctions as much as they want”. Mironov noted that the statement that the RF Gosduma will pass today on the Crimea could be a response to the sanctions, saying, “The world’s very interdependent”. For now, Mironov observed that it’s too early to say how Russia could react, although many want to know this. He responded to media reports on whether the Crimean referendum scenario would repeat in Transdniestria by warning that one shouldn’t jump ahead, saying, “We’ll react to facts, including legal facts, even though the example of the Crimea is very inspiring for many Russian people”.

Editor:

The figure of Ostap Bender, the conman at the centre of the novels The Twelve Chairs and The Golden Calf, is a quintessential figure in Russian pop culture. Russians have this as part of their “cultural DNA”. By using this simile, Mironov showed his utter contempt and absolute derision of the American action (giving it a Number One Bronx Cheer… he gave it the “Italian Salute” in spades), and the reporters picked it up without any prompting. In essence, Mironov mooned the Amerikantsy (and farted heartily for good measure), and all of Russia laughed with him, not at him.

The RF Gosduma adopted a draft resolution “On the situation in the Crimea”, supported by 441 Deputies, one Deputy abstained from voting. The bill was put on the table yesterday on behalf of the leaders of all four Gosduma factions and Chairman Sergei Naryshkin. In its statement, the Gosduma expressed support of the desire of the Crimean people to reunite with Russia, “Welcoming the declaration of will of the people of Crimea voiced in the referendum of 16 March 2014 on the inclusion of the Republic of the Crimea (RK) and the Autonomous City of Sevastopol into the RF, the Gosduma proceeds from the fact that the public authorities, acting on the territory of the Crimea, would maintain the religious harmony and linguistic diversity of the Republic”. For their part, the deputies declared, “They’d contribute to the socio-economic development of the Crimea and the wellbeing of its population” during the transition period. “The Gosduma would help to ensure the safety of all persons in the territory of the Crimea, regardless of their citizenship, nationality, language, and religious affiliation, so that they could achieve their rights and freedoms”.

The RF Gosduma, the lower house of the Federal Assembly, unanimously passed a statement in which they volunteered to be subject to American and EU sanctions imposed on individual Russian officials and lawmakers due to the referendum in the Crimea, saying, “We suggest that Mr Obama [US President Barack Obama] and EU bureaucrats put all the Gosduma deputies who voted for Crimea’s accession to Russia and for this resolution on the ‘black list’ of persons subject to American and EU sanctions”.

Editor:

The “sanctions” did have an effect… they united all Russians against the zapadniki interlopers! In short, the Gosduma “dropped trou” en masse and mooned the Americans… and laughed, to top it all off. That is, Russia doesn’t give a shit what the West thinks, and the RVSN protects them from any military incursions. Russia CAN turn the USA into a pile of smoking radioactive ash… that’s why the Anglo-Saxon Amerikantsy hate them. The Amerikantsy are juvenile bullies who love to threaten others, but demand total invulnerability for themselves. You see, the thought that we “inferior” Russians CAN strike at them infuriates them to no end… you see, they’re the “superior” people on the block, they were “born to rule”, and we were “born to be helots”. After all, America tolerated and defended slavery for 250 years, and its attitudes still linger in the American South (and in the Republican Party).

On Tuesday, Yuri Ushakov, President Vladimir Putin’s top foreign policy aide ridiculed EU and US sanctions, slamming the visa bans and asset freezes imposed against Russian officials, saying that Moscow viewed them with irony and sarcasm. Interfax quoted him as saying, “You’ve heard the comments from my colleagues placed on the sanctions list. These sanctions are a bother; truly, they cause nothing but irony and even sarcasm”. Vladislav Surkov, another Kremlin aide, called the sanctions against him a “political Oscar”. Interfax noted that he said, “I believe these are very comfortable sanctions, I’m not experiencing any problems over them. This doesn’t disturb me. On the contrary, I’m proud of this, I believe that it’s a sort of political Oscar from America for a best supporting actor”. ITAR-TASS reported that Ushakov declined to say whether Russia would slap counter sanctions against the West.

Editor:

The smart thing for Russia to do is NOTHING. That’s right… NOTHING. You see, if it were to “sanction” John McCain and Marco Rubio, it’d just fire up the yahoo Know Nothing Republican base. Therefore, Russia should do NOTHING. In fact, it should let the comedians on Comedy Club do the “heavy lifting” (a waggish skit or two on Jolly Wits Club wouldn’t hurt either). The Amerikantsy rightwingers would bear Russian sanctions with pride, but jokes would infuriate them. Besides, Russia is in the right, here… we could show the world how truly mature human beings act. America’s shown the world how juvenile and brattish poseurs act… what a buncha maroons.

As the wolf said, Nu, Pogodi! (Just you wait!) They who laugh last, laugh best…

Russia and Crimea signed a treaty of accession of the Republic of Crimea (RK) and Sevastopol to the Russian Federation following President Putin’s address to the Federal Assembly. President Putin said that the RK and the Autonomous City of Sevastopol are joining the Russian Federation (RF) as two separate federal subjects. The agreement would temporarily apply from the signature date and would take effect once ratified. According to the agreement, the RF guarantees all peoples inhabiting Crimea and Sevastopol the preservation of their native language and the creation of conditions for learning and developing it. On Tuesday, the Kremlin said that it now considers the RK part of the RF following the signing of the treaty. According to a report posted on the Kremlin website, “We regard the RK as accepted in the Russian Federation from the date of signing” the relevant treaty.

Russian, Ukrainian, and Crimean Tatar will be the official languages in the Crimea, according to a clause in the agreement between Russia and the RK. Elections for the RK and the Federal City of Sevastopol’s governing bodies will be on the second Sunday of September 2015, according to the treaty on the accession of the RK and Sevastopol to the RF and the formation of new entities within it. Before the elections, the RK State Soviet (GS RK) and the Sevastopol Gorsoviet would perform the functions of these government bodies. The treaty on the inclusion of Crimea in the RF envisions a transition period, which will last until 1 January 2015. The purpose of this transition period is to “settle all issues on the integration of the new federal subjects of the RF [the Republic of the Crimea and the Federal City of Sevastopol] in RF economic, financial, credit, and legal systems, and in the RF public administration system. Issues relating to conscription and military service in the territory of the RK and the Federal City of Sevastopol” would also be resolved during this transition period.

According to the treaty signed by the RF and Crimea on the inclusion of Crimea in Russia, Russian citizens conscripted in the RK and Sevastopol would serve their duty in these regions until 2016. Ukrainian citizens residing in the Crimea would become Russian citizens after the signing of an agreement admitting the RK and Sevastopol as parts of the RF, unless they express their wish to keep their current citizenship within a month. “As of the day of the admission of the RK to the RF and the formation of new RF federal subjects, Ukrainian citizens and non-citizens permanently residing in the RK and the Federal City of Sevastopol are recognised as Russian citizens”. Exceptions would be made for persons “who within one month from this day express their wish to keep their current (other than Russian) citizenship for themselves and their underage children or to remain persons without citizenship”.

Delimitation of maritime borders in the Black Sea and in the Sea of Azov following Crimea’s rejoining the RF would follow international law. The accession agreement between the RF and the RK clearly stated, “The delimitation of sea space in the Black Sea and in the Sea of Azov will follow international agreements signed by the RF and on the norms and principles of international law. The land border of the RK next to the Ukraine shall be deemed the RF border”. The agreement would temporarily apply from the date of signing and would come into full force from the date of ratification.

Editor:

There are two “Cities of Federal Status” in the RF now… Moscow and St Petersburg. The “cleanest” way to “English” this is “Federal City of (Moscow, St Petersburg, or Sevastopol)”. This new accession means that there are now three Cities of Federal Status. If Kiev were to join the RF (not an improbable event), it’d probably become the fourth such city… and may that event come quickly! The Mother of All Russian Cities deserves to be under its rightful flag… and cleansed of the neoliberal and fascist filth defiling it now (unfortunately, Yatsenyuk, Tyagnibok, and Turchinov will flee before justice catches up with them, Klichko will probably be dead, and Darlin’ Yuliya has already skipped off to the West… what does she know what we don’t?).

Putin Names Russia’s Top Political Figures

00 28.09.12. KPRF on religion

______________________________

President Vladimir Putin listed Gennady Zyuganov, the First Secretary of the KPRF, and Vladimir Zhironovsky, a firebrand nationalist, as Russia’s most influential politicians. When asked Thursday at his annual press conference marathon who he deemed Russia’s No. 2 politician, Putin first named KPRF head Zyuganov, raising giggles among the 1,300 reporters assembled. He then named populist LDPR leader Zhirinovsky, who first came to prominence in the 1990s, but whom pro-Westerners dismissed as a clownish presence on the political scene. Next, Putin named the leftist leader of A Just Russia, Sergei Mironov. Only then did Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev, head of the ruling United Russia bloc receive a relatively cursory reference. Medvedev served as President from 2008 to 2012, during which time some thought that he had a liberalising, if ultimately minor, impact on public life. Putin has since rolled back some of his “reforms”. All the first three figures named by Putin are mainstays of the Russian political scene, but pro-Westerners in Moscow accuse them of working with the Kremlin. Putin didn’t mention any leaders of the mass protests that erupted in 2011-12, including Aleksei Navalny, a popular Kremlin-basher and runner-up in last September’s mayoral elections in Moscow. Putin refused to state whether he’s picked a successor, saying, “I say nothing because there’s nothing to say”.

Editor’s Note:

The reporters giggled because most of them are neoliberal sorts from Moscow. VVP knows better. He knows that in the REAL Russia… the Russia outside the two capitals… the zapadniki have no cred whatsoever. A spectre haunts the neoliberals in contemporary Russia… the only real organised political force in the country is the KPRF, especially, in the provinces. VVP knows this… he knows that the days of the oligarchs are numbered… the country is returning to its roots. Look at the 2013 Victory Day parade… and look at any Red October or Victory Day parade from the ‘80s. Russia has embraced Christianity and rejected the West’s godless capitalism. The Church has picked up the Red Banner (HH just gave the second-highest church decoration to Soviet icon Iosif Kobzon) and it EMBRACES socialism. After all, socialism is Christian, whereas American-style crapitalism is the vilest anti-Christian rot out there.

This development discombobulated the woollier elements in the ROCOR. They’re in communion with the MP… but they don’t want to give up their Far Right notions. Ergo, there’s all sort of wild stuff circulating from the First Families. Some actually pump up Maria Vladimirovna Romanova (the disgusting pretender who calls herself the “Grand Duchess of Russia”… what a maroon!)… she has about as much chance of attaining real power as I do! Therefore, most priests are hunkering down and repeating Potapov’s silly drivel. No one knows what they really believe, but they’re not crackbrained John Birchers, that’s for sure! Cut ‘em some slack… if they don’t parrot the Party Line, the First Family apparat would dump on them, and the First Families make Stalinists look like choirboys (in fact, the First Families are the last of that noxious breed… don’t let their “niceness” and smarmy pious exteriors fool you).

A new world is dawning… both in Russia and in the Russian Orthodox diaspora. There are those who don’t want it… oppose them. Don’t argue with them… oppose them. You can’t dialogue with those who’ve sold out to Mammon (and, thusly, to Satan). After all, Christ was a WORKER… NOT an oligarch… NOT an official… NOT a salesman… NOT a clergyman… reflect on that, if you will…

Exit Polls Say Putin to Win Kremlin Vote in First Round… Russians Say “Nyet” to American-Style Rightwing Neoliberalism

_____________________________

On Sunday, exit polls indicated that Vladimir Putin gained 58.3 percent of the vote in the Russian presidential election, enough to hand him outright victory. His nearest rival, KPRF leader Gennady Zyuganov, took 17.7 percent, state pollster VTsIOM said. No other candidate gained more than 10 percent. If the results of polling confirm the exit polls, Putin, 59, would be inaugurated as new president in May and serve for six years, not four, as previously. The elections took place under the backdrop of mass demonstrations triggered by allegations of vote fraud by Putin’s United Russia Party in December’s parliamentary polls.

Editor’s Note:

America’s darling, Prokhorov, got only about 5 percent of the vote. That’s why you should NEVER listen to pretentious loudmouths like Anya Schmmemann, Victoria Nuland, Sophia Kishkovsky, and Katrina vanden Heuvel… they’re lazy dogs-body layabouts who only give you the opinions of the English-speaking “middle-class” (properly footnoted, of course)… you’d NEVER see them in Bibibrevo or Lyubertsy! EEK! Those smelly and semi-literate WORKING CLASS PEOPLE live there! What’s worse (in their eyes), they have their own opinions, they won’t listen to their betters.

Russia voted LEFT… no doubt about it. Russia rejected the McMansion option. I think that America’s getting ready to do the same… expect a landslide FOR President Obama in the fall. NO… he’s not perfect… but he doesn’t go about calling his opponents “sluts” and he doesn’t lie about his opponents’ birth certificates. Expect Presidents Putin and Obama to get on famously… why shouldn’t they?
