This couple found a cat frozen in the snow in Zlataust in Chelyabinsk Oblast (in the Urals). They freed the furby from its frozen snare and took him home. The followup vid shows that the kotik is safe n’ sound and has a new loving home. This is from this year in late November.

By the way… here’s some trivia. “Zlataust” in Russian is the translation for the name of “Chrysostom”… therefore, “Ioann Zlataust” or “Ioann Zlataustago”… I thought that you might want to know that… the town is named for St John Chrysostom.

24 November 2016. From the Russian Web… It’s Just Another Ordinary Day in the Rodina

Winter is On Its Way in the Ukraine

Eventually, you know that the weather will take its toll. Today, in Kherson and Nikolayev, the average outdoor temperatures are 3 to 8 degrees (38 to 47 degrees Fahrenheit)… apartments usually have a heat level of 16 to 18 degrees (61 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit). I received information about cutbacks in the heating season, so people are starting large-scale installations of electric heaters. The money to purchase gas, coal, and oil is missing and there’s nothing budgeted for public utility services. People are well aware that the winter will be very hard; today, nobody knows how they’re going to get heat. Yesterday, sources sent me photos where you can see signs on the Kherson-Nikolayev motorway reading, “Putin warm-up”. I’ve gotten intel about the heat problem in almost all Ukrainian cities. Kherson and Nikolayev aren’t ready for the cold season. Today, thieving officials with no scrap of leadership ability run our cities.
