______________________________

Have you ever wondered why the Armenians have lasted so long in a tough neighbourhood? Look at this picture… it’s what the Armenian spetsnaz do for shits n’ giggles. This is the sort of people that the Armenians are. FULL STOP. If you want to know what kind of fighters the Armenians are, do ask the Azerbaijanis. Oh, yes… Armenia and Russia are bosom bros from way back… they’re part of the Orthosphere, dontcha know…

22 December 2014. A Picture IS Worth a Thousand Words… A Soldier Kisses His Girlfriend in Stavropol

00 Kiss in Stavropol Russia. 22.12.14

_______________________________

Normal life does go on… a soldier kisses his girlfriend in Stavropol. Thank God… things are as they’ve always been. Aren’t you ashamed of having listened to the Western media’s lies about Russia? There aren’t any ogres about… nor is there any war being prepared… on the Russian side, that is. As for the Uniate fascists and their American puppeteers… it’s anyone’s guess (in fact, a false flag op ginned up by Langley carried out by Uniate fanatics isn’t out of the question). “Winning is the only thing”… you forget that about Anglo Americans at your peril… “A knife for the Moskals!”… such is the Christianity of the Uniates. Let those with ears, hear…

Let’s take a break from the war… have a smile. Originally, instead of “beer”, it had “пиво”, but the magic of PhotoShop allowed me to make the change. By the way, the officer is a major…

They’re cookin’ up goulash, borshch, and kasha… the soldiers say that the enemy could tell their positions by the yummy smell (it spreads for metres around).

“I’m not a chef! I’m a COOK!” thundered Senior Cook-Instructor Vitaly Razamazov. For 15 years, he’s fed the crew of the Guards cruiser Varyag. He made his famous pea soup, stewed meat with kasha, and compote.

Submariners get special rations, which include red wine and caviar. All ships on extended deployment receive additional allotments of kolbasa and meat.

It only took five minutes! The cook decorated this vinagret with rosettes of carrot and pickles.

The standard bill of fare includes over 200 items… it includes Russian, Belarusian, Ukrainian, and Georgian national foods.

However, the staff of life is still bread… and army bakers can still bake it under field conditions.

______________________________

Of course, the troops bitch and moan about the food (all good soldiers do)… they call it “Belka and Strelka” (two Sov dogs shot into space… it’s a Russian way of saying Ken-L-Ration). Nonetheless, they chow it down, and most of it is objectively good (just like the US mess halls… they do put out high-quality stuff… just pop in on Thanksgiving and find out).
