4 October 2016. From the Russian Web… A Viral RuNet Cat

00-leps-and-cat-041016

________________________________________

This cat is all over the RuNet… it seems like everybody on vK has him up! Allegedly, the feline is a ringer for G V Leps, the famous pop star. Grigori Viktorovich is famous for his wearing of shades everywhere and anywhere… so, I chose an image of G V with the same sort of shades that the cat’s wearing. What do you think? Does the cat look like Leps or is it just another internet Winnigan’s Fake?

By the way, it should interest you that G V is one of the four judges on Golos… the Russian version of The Voice. He’s also a big-time Orthodox Christian, but he doesn’t wear it on his sleeve… he’s not a fanatical nudge. He always chooses an apartment with a view of a church through the window, or at least a road, because “roads always lead to a church”. He has an extensive collection of old icons and (no surprise) he also has a large collection of vintage sunglasses. Oh, yes… the USA and the Ukraine ban G V… they claim that he associates with criminal elements and that he’s a criminal himself. That’s bollocks on stilts… anyhoo, it’s the usual Anglo smear against those whom they label as uppity inferiors (that is, G V is a white “uppity nigger” in the eyes of the American Establishment (and of those who kiss their ass)).

As for me, I believe…

Russian Neo-Nazi Homophobe Extremist Arrested in Cuba

00 No More Hate Crime. 18.09.13

______________________________

On Saturday, the MVD reported that Cuba arrested Maksim Martsinkevich, a Russian Neo-Nazi activist known for his violent campaign targeting alleged paedophiles, on an international arrest warrant. Cuba informed Russia of the affair through Interpol. More widely known under his nickname of Tesak, or “Machete”, a Russian court ordered Martsinkevich’s arrest last month on extremism charges.

According to Russian tabloid Life News, which has close links to security sources, during an 8 January interview, Martsinkevich said that Russia’s “peado-lobby” orchestrated the criminal charges against him, and that he didn’t intend to return to Russia. The RF SK said that it’s finalising the details of Martsinkevich’s extradition. In a 9 January post on his website, Martsinkevich wrote that he’d flown to Cuba from Kiev, via Frankfurt. In 2011, Martsinkevich founded the Occupy Paedophile vigilante group, which lured men to abusive encounters using false promises of sex with minors. They recorded the encounters and posted them online. Reports also said that the group targeted gay men, whom they subjected to similar abusive treatment. Martsinkevich has over 130,000 subscribers to his page on Russian social networking site Vkontakte where he posts information about himself and his political beliefs. The former leader of banned nationalist group Format 18, the authorities released Martsinkevich from prison in 2010 after he served a 3½-year sentence on incitement to hatred charges.

Priest Linked to FK Zenit Wanted for Suspected Child Sex Abuse

00 Fr Gleb Grozovsky. 06.11.13

_______________________________

On Wednesday, the SKP said that it suspects that an Orthodox priest with links to St Petersburg’s FK Zenit sexually abused two children during a holiday trip to a Greek island. Law enforcement officials said that they have put Fr Gleb Grozovsky on an international wanted list over allegations that he abused two underage girls at an Orthodox summer camp earlier this year. Grozovsky, 34, is suspected of abusing the two girls, aged 9 and 12, in June at a hotel on the grounds of the Philadelphia Orthodox Travel Club on the Greek island of Kos, as well as committing “a range of similar crimes in St Petersburg and Leningrad Oblast”.

On Wednesday, Grozovsky wrote on his page on the VKontakte social networking site, “… The accusations are fabricated and result from my social activism and firm civil stance”. He said that parents and children’s camp staff were present during the trip and had “seen everything with their own eyes”, adding that he’d been accompanied on the holiday by his family, including his four children. The Diocese of St Petersburg suspended Grozovsky pending the probe, meaning that he retains his clerical status, but he isn’t allowed to carry out any public duties.

The SKP noted that the clergyman, who formerly served a rural parish in Leningrad Oblast, was an adviser to FK Zenit’s general director. A spokesman for Zenit said that Grozovsky, who studied at one of the city’s specialised football schools, doesn’t hold any official office at the football club, but observed that some of the club’s players turned to the priest on an individual basis, saying, “We’ve known Gleb since 2007 and can give positive references”.

Last Friday, a court issued an arrest warrant for Grozovsky, who’s thought to be on a work-related trip to Israel. His defence appealed the ruling. The charges launched against the priest carry a maximum punishment of up to 20 years imprisonment. The accusations are a rare incidence of paedophilia-related cases involving Russian Orthodox clergy. On Wednesday, Fyodor Gorbunov, the mayor of the village where the priest formerly served said that he was “amazed” to hear about the allegations, and gave a positive assessment of Grozovsky’s work, telling RIA-Novosti, “Young people are drawn to him, and he’s a good organiser”.

Editor’s Note:

THIS is why the Mother Church is more honest. It has to operate in the full glare of scrutiny from the media and government. Here in the diaspora, the Church is small enough to “fall below the radar horizon”, which means that feral sorts such as Lyonyo, Paffso, Potapov, Dreher, Royster, Bobby K, Ray Velencia, and Erickson get away (and got away) with murder. Trust me, had the Iliff affair (click here and here) happened in Russia, they wouldn’t have buried it. To put it bluntly, it’d sell MK millions of copies, and that’s why the media covers stories… to get audiences for their paid adverts. The Church moved quickly after MK broke the story of the sex abuse scandal in the Vladimir Diocese. Watch for similar fast action here… if for no other reason than to scotch the flames. Grozovsky smells like a goner to me…
