Today, media contacts in the DNR Peoples Soviet told us that orphaned kids from the families of KIA DNR servicemembers arrived for a holiday in Kronshtadt in the Russian Federation, saying, “On 2 June, ten of our kids went to St Petersburg and Kronshtadt for a two-week holiday. They’ll be there for about a week. It’s not clear whether any further groups will go there in future, but the Kronshtadt Naval Cathedral International Charity Fund (MBF KMS) plans to continue to coöperate with the DNR authorities”. On 29 May, Andrei Kononov, the General Director of the MBF KMS reported, “About 300 kids will go on two-week holidays in Kronshtadt this year. They’ll not only see Kronshtadt, but also visit many treasures of St Petersburg, including the Ermitazh, the State Russian Museum, and the Petropavlovsk Fortress. We also plan visits to the zoological museum and planetarium. In addition, with parental consent, we’ll hold medical clinical diagnostic check-ups for the kids, and give advice on the proper care [of any problems found]”. In the past, the MBF KMS helped people in the DNR. At Easter, it sent St Ioann Kronshtadtsky parish in Donetsk a new iconostas to replace one destroyed in the fighting and gave the parish new liturgical utensils.

Russia welcomes DNR kids on holiday and intends to treat their wounds (physical, mental, and emotional) gratis… now, that’s Christianity. The USA bombs kids (not only in Novorossiya, but in Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Gaza, Afghanistan, and Pakistan too) and steals from them to enrich the Affluent Effluent. Ted Cruz calls that Christianity. I seem to think that one of these things is not like the other! I’m not alone in thinking that…
