18 October 2018. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky… Kerch

__________________

If you reflect on the subject of a tragedy, when a teenager or anyone else arms themselves with a gun and starts to commit mass murder, one way or another, you can start to discern the reasons if you look hard enough. You can find not only those on the surface that are manifest and plain, but also deeper meanings. Where does this demonic rationalisation come from, when someone living in society methodically prepares to take the lives of others, to cause horrible suffering to all those affected by the consequences of his acts? He acquires a gun, to go to do what he will. He strokes it and checks it out. He counts out his ammo, each of which ends in mutilated flesh and human suffering. He adds nuts nod screws [to his bomb], which will spew out with great speed at the time of the explosion, wanting to see the blast spin all those into fear for their innocent lives. Something in this is possessed and demonic. It feels like the world accumulates in itself evil to the brim, but it just keeps on accumulating… yesterday in Columbine, today in Kerch, tomorrow… who knows what town.

Politicians of all kinds easily threaten whole countries, promising a great deal of bloodshed for whatever reason. Who’s stronger and bolder… just give the command to kill! Movies, games, reading, and other media products have long since gone to hell. However, only when our kids start to die at the hands of scumbag losers do we only just begin to look for reasons. An infernal grudge that crawled out of hell grips the world. It climbed into our screens, monitors, thoughts, conversations, books, and daily life. Someone takes a weapon and goes to carry out their dark plans without thinking and not being able to understand the consequences. Apparently, his soul went crazy; he’s doomed then. Apparently, somebody set them up and led them to the abyss. Moreover, even if the perpetrator remains human, then, someone who’s no longer human probably likely drove him to the edge. We who live on this planet still have a chance to figure out how to change this… as we cry along with the weeping families of Kerch.

Vitaly Podvitsky Masterskaya Karikatury

Facebook

Editor:

Vitaly Podvitsky is the editorial cartoonist for RIA and Sputnik. He usually doesn’t write so much, so it means that this affected him on a deep level. Take a care not to rush to judgement. It may be that a lone gunman was part of the mix, if not the whole story. Equally, foreign special services aren’t above using twisted individuals. Most of my Russian friends think that an American/junta sabotage group wanted to attack the Kerch Bridge, but found it too well defended. They then sought a softer target and befriended a twisted sort. It’s plausible, but I’d want to see some evidence, and if the Russians do find evidence they probably wouldn’t make it public… you don’t reveal to your foe what you know about them.

We probably will never know the full story, for a multitude of reasons. Yet, the author is correct… evil is afoot… much of it in “religious” vesture. Do be wary, not all that seems fair is. That’s especially true in America, where Evangelicalism masquerades as Christianity and has stolen the podium to such an extent that it’s the greatest impetus to evil and unbelief in our society. Have a care… the times aren’t good.

1 June 2018. Today is World Children’s Day… A Wry View From Vitaly Podvitsky

________________________

The International Day for Protection of Children is observed in many countries as Children’s Day on 1 June since 1950. It was established by the Women’s International Democratic Federation at its congress in Moscow on 4 November 1949. In other words, it’s a positive Soviet legacy.

26 May 2018. As Seen By Vitaly Podvitsky… You Shall Not Pass!

The Ukrainian leadership decided to block several media outlets, including RIA Novosti Ukraine and Sputnik, as part of Kiev’s anti-Russian sanctions. Per a new set of punitive measures against Russia, Kiev blocked access to россиясегодня.рф, Sputniknews.com, Ria.ru, Rsport.ria.ru, 1prime.ru, and realty.ria.ru for Ukrainian users. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed outrage over this move and described it as an “act of political censorship”. Earlier this month, the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) broke into the offices of RIA Novosti Ukraine in Kiev, arresting the agency’s head, Kirill Vyshinsky, on charges of treason.

30 September 2017. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky… Yet Another Invader in the Dustbin

_________________________

The Anglo Americans are fond of shouting about how “powerful” and “exceptional” they are. I’d note that Russia has a history of defeating “stronger” states. 1242 was the defeat of the Teutonic Knights… 1612 was the defeat of the Poles in Moscow… 1709 was the defeat of King Karl of Sweden at Poltava… 1812 was the defeat of Napoleon and his disastrous retreat from Russia… 1945 was the defeat of the German fascists. Russia (and the USSR before it) always prepared for an American sneak attack. Firstly, this is how all Western attacks on Holy Rus started. Secondly, Russians are close students of history and they note that Anglo Americans are brazen and mendacious liars who never keep their word (as the Anglo history of dealing with Native Americans showed).

What held true in 1242 still holds true… “Those who march on Russia with sword in hand, by that sword shall they die”. I hope that Anglo hubris doesn’t lead to war… God alone knows if we’d survive.
