Here’s the Real Deal: HH’s Congratulatory Message to G A Zyuganov on His 70th Birthday

04a Kirill and Zyuganov



This is the only time that we can put a cross in front of a bishop’s name… it’s an EXACT copy of an official communication from a hierarch. All those who put crosses in front of bishops’ names at other times show themselves unlettered boobs, and there’s nothing else to say. Patriarchia.ru follows this rule, so, if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me, and it’s good enough for you, too.



Dear Gennady Andreyevich,

I heartily congratulate you on this remarkable date. Being one of the most prominent politicians of modern Russia, you strive to look after the welfare of the people and protect traditional moral values. I hope that in future your fruitful activity would promote social initiatives and moral transformation of society. I wish you good health, peace, and divine help in all your good deeds and endeavours. I think it fair to award you the Order “Glory and Honour” (Third Class).



Patriarch of Moscow and all the Russias

You may stand with HH and G A Zyuganov, who believe that the Free Market is a fraud, a monster that devours the working class, or, you can stand with Potapov and Paffso, who suck up to the rich and defend greedster laissez-faire crapitalism. That’s your choice… there’s none other… do choose carefully, for the fate of your immortal soul IS in the balance.

8 July 2014. You Can’t Make Up Shit Like This: “Church Cynically Sidesteps Soviet’s Brutal Past” (Yes… That’s what this Crackbrained Zapadnik Actually Wrote)

04b Kirill and Zyuganov



You gotta read this unhinged shit. Truly… this is what the zapadniki believe. Note well that he repeats Langley’s playbook word-for-word. Dupes and fellow-travellers exist… in Moscow and Piter, mostly. Here’s the sad part… the fascist filth at the so-called “Kyiv Post” (do note the illiterate Uniate backwoods spelling of “Kiev”) picked this up, and it’s heartening the Uniate filth and their schismatical running dog allies. I have more to say, but read this first… really, you can’t make up shit like this…

This is a “read n’ heed”… it tells you what the US government and its fawning amen corner amongst the Russian intelligentsia purveys as its Pravda of the moment. Do have a care, there be dragons, and they be hungry… HobbyLobby proved that…



Not much in modern Russia surprises me anymore, but last week I got a real shock… Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev warmly congratulated KPRF leader G A Zyuganov on his 70th birthday, presenting him with the church’s highest order, saying, “As one of the most prominent politicians of modern Russia, you strive to look after the welfare of the people and protect traditional moral values. I hope that in future your fruitful activity will help promote socially significant initiatives and the moral transformation of society”. I’d like to remind our friend the Patriarch that a communist dictatorship killed tens of thousands of Russian Orthodox priests and sent hundreds of thousands to labour camps. That doesn’t even include the countless Soviet laypeople imprisoned or killed for their faith. Zyuganov has portraits of V I Lenin and I V Stalin hanging above his desk, portraits of men who personally signed orders to destroy churches and execute believers. However, perhaps, the modern-day leader of the same party once led by Lenin and Stalin reconsidered and said something about the “blunders” or “wrongdoings” of his predecessors… nothing of the sort. Zyuganov remains the same diehard Marxist that he always was.

The only explanation is that Patriarch Kirill so venerates Soviet-era leaders and history that he wilfully closed his eyes to the darkest pages of his country’s past, even when those tragedies concern the Orthodox Church. The Bolsheviks didn’t formally ban the church; they simply “separated it from the state”. Nevertheless, in a country where the state controlled everything, this meant that they denied access to ordinary jobs to people of faith. Even if they did manage to land a desirable post, they found themselves denied opportunities for career advancement. Back when I studied at MGU, I twice saw school authorities expel students for the “crime” of attending church. After all, a normal self-respecting Soviet citizen should be an atheist. The Soviet authorities enshrined atheism in a thousand different laws. For example, the Bolsheviks adopted a decree on marriage in December 1917 that prohibited church marriages {they didn’t prohibit them, they declared them not legal before the law… that is, one could have a religious ceremony after a civil marriage, but only the civil marriage was legal… which is still true today: editor}. Right up until 1991, any Soviet citizen who got married in a church or baptised their children shouldered a serious risk. If Party members, they faced expulsion; if ordinary workers, they faced dismissal. Even with all the attempts at change that former Soviet leader M S Gorbachyov undertook with his “perestroĭka” during the final years of the USSR, the intolerance to churches and those who visit them remained unchanged.

However, the Orthodox Church became an influential force under President V V Putin. Nobody speaks of “separating the church from the state” anymore, although that principle is clearly enunciated in the Russian Constitution. Kirill is Putin’s greatest cheerleader. Now, in place of lessons on atheistic communism, school students study the Orthodox faith, institutes devoted to natural sciences introduce theology departments, and Orthodox priests give their blessing at every ship and rocket launch. Nevertheless, in the authorities’ view, and, perhaps, even from Zyuganov’s perspective, such behaviour is normal and even right.

Andrei Malgin

The Moscow Times



00 BMD. Zyuganov We should strive to be better. 25.12.13



Firstly, look at the BRIGHT side of this. This screed, with all of its venomous bile and biting vitriol, means that the zapadniki are losing the battle for the soul of Holy Rus. That’s a very good thing, kids. The westernisers are losing heart; they’re losing what few niches that they have left in contemporary Russia (such as Ekho Moskvy). Malgin wants a godless Russia in the mode of the USA and the EU… he’s anti-religious, but he dare not admit such in today’s climate. He wants anti-religion, but in the modern Western style, not the Soviet style. Religion is one’s private notion and affectation, and it shouldn’t impinge on the public square. Religion is a tolerated anachronism… nothing more.

Of course, Malgin merely echoes the tune played by Langley, K Street, the Uniate hierarchy, the OCA/ROCOR First Families, and certain Jordanville elements. Shitbirds of a feather do flock together… do note that some elements in the ROCOR didn’t bury the hatchet after the ’07 reconciliation (I mean those who stayed… not those who left). Potapov remained at Radio Liberty… a deeply-Russophobic and anti-Orthodox institution… and his clique mirrors his extremist political views and shares his rightwing vision of a Russian future. He’s an analogue of the Uniate clergy who urge on the Svoboda killers… he works for a front agency of the CIA, which means that he helps in the present bloodletting in the Ukraine. He’s not alone… Lyonyo remains at the CFR, an American Establishment foreign policy stink-tank… Paffso’s tied in with every extremist rightwing stink-tank on K Street… SVS continues to suck up to Uniates (as the Taft invite proved)… I saw rightwing fanatics from the District at Jordanville at Pentecost, and they were schmoozing with the known rightwingers from the brotherhood.

The rightwingers and the godless FEAR the combination of Orthodoxy and Marxism. They do know that this combination makes more sense than the alliance with predatory crapitalism and Christianity that they propose. Don’t forget, the god-fearing commies in Novorossiya smashed the slot machines, shuttered the porno palaces, shot drug dealers, and chased the whores and pervs off the streets. They enshrined the Orthodox faith in their constitutions… a fact that upsets the godless mightily.

Yes, Virginia, the commies DID learn a lesson… G A Zyuganov writes letters of congratulations to believers at Christmas and Easter, and posts them on the KPRF website. During the Nasty 90s in the Ukraine, the Komsomoltsy stood tall for the canonical Church… they defended them from Uniate and schismatical desecrators. As a correspondent told me, “The Komsomoltsy were real muscle men… they didn’t take anything from anybody. However, they were respectful towards the elderly bishop and didn’t let anyone show disrespect to him”. Malgin is wilfully blind… we all know what the Scripture says of them… there is none so blind as those who will not to see. He wills not to see… therefore, he won’t. The same is true of Potapov, Paffso, Lyonyo, SVS, and all of their filthy retinues… they will not to see, and nothing that we can do will help it (unfortunately).

Look at the hate spilled by Malgin… look at the GOOD done by the alliance of the Church, Russian nationalists, and Leftists… one of these things is NOT like the other. Look at the good trees… look at the bad trees… and no bad tree bears good fruit… Our Lord Christ told us so!

6 January 2013. Christmas Appeal of KPRF Chairman G A Zyuganov

00 Fedoskino Palekh box. Christmas. 06.01.13


Dear compatriots, friends, comrades!

In these days filled with bright joy and hope, I want to appeal to all those who cherish the ideals of goodness and justice, of equity and compassion. This celebration, symbolising the harmony of all life on Earth, brings forth the highest aspirations of humanity; we come closer to each other, ignoring the distances between us, ignoring all boundaries and differences. After all, Christmas Eve gives us another opportunity to think about our lives and affairs in the face of eternal truths and aspirations.

As it was two thousand years ago, in this holiday season, we turn our hearts and thoughts to those who are dearest to us… our parents, our children, our families. Christmas is a family holiday. The family is the sheet-anchor of society… its spiritual power and its blood integrate the past and the future, in birth and continuity, in hope and joy. Our Motherland is one large family, and its troubles and the destruction of its means have led to bitterness, greed, cruelty, and cold insensitivity.

On this radiant and joyous folk holiday, I wish that all the dreams of our children, from infants through youth, find fulfilment, that all women experience the joy of motherhood, and I hope that all men would be defenders of the Motherland and their homes. According to our traditional precepts, we urge everyone to do whatever that they can for our children, to share with the broken and disadvantaged, to protect the weak and the wronged, to rebel against injustice and malice.

This is the main spiritual prop of society. We should work for a change for the better every single day. Then, our orphans would find a family and comfort in their own Motherland, the robbed and deceived would find the restoration of justice and a warm home, those aspiring to knowledge would find access to education and science, and all of us together would find pride and joy in the revival of the Motherland. Our guiding principle has always been the belief that life can and must change for the better, that we can usher in a new era, an era of mercy, justice, and spirituality. We communists have always worked hard to achieve this, and we shall continue to work hard to achieve this. I hope that all of you have great joy, good health, and the fulfilment of your aspirations!

To the Nativity of Christ!

KPRF Mass Rally in Theatre Square


23 February… all to the Rally!

For everyday self-respect and fair elections!

Zyuganov is our President!

Power and property to the people!

Stop Serdyukov’s pogrom against the army!

Moscow. Theatre Square. 13.00



23 February… To Soviet Army Day!




NEWSRU.COM reported that communist leader Gennady Zyuganov urged the participants at a KPRF mass rally in Theatre Square in Moscow to be active if there’s a second round in the election. Zyuganov said he wouldn’t rule out a second round in the presidential election, “The more people who go to the polls to vote and more, the more likely a second round becomes”. The Communists have trained about 300,000 observers to monitor the coming election. Zyuganov said, “We warn the Central Election Commission, and its head, Mr Churov, that no matter how much rope they play out, they’ll have to take responsibility sooner or later”. In a separate appeal to the heads of the electoral commissions not to falsify election results, Zyuganov warned, “We’d regard you as criminals, grasping for state power for private gain”.

Zyuganov felt that the upcoming election was akin to the Great Patriotic War, he promised to fight for every polling station, for every home, saying, “This is a no less difficult struggle than the battles at Stalingrad and Oryol-Kursk”. Zyuganov called on the protesters to remember when they voted on 4 March that, at one time, Russia was once amongst the five leading countries, and was the first in scientific discoveries, but the problems of drug addiction and alcoholism now face it. Zyuganov told his supporters to stand “like 70 years ago our fathers and grandfathers stood at Moscow, like they stood at Stalingrad, even when the Wehrmacht captured most of the city”. In his opinion, the most important thing now is to concentrate everything at the main point. He said, “At each polling site, we must have five observers, and they shouldn’t leave, even if they try to pull you out”.

The Moscow KPRF estimated the number of participants in the event at approximately 10,000 people. Across Theatre Square, participants flew the banners and symbols of the KPRF and the Komsomol. Sergei Kovalyov, the President of the International Taekwondo Federation gave Zyuganov an eighth dan black belt.
