I imagine all these atrocities were in compliance with “rules of the road” in place at the time. The Serbia situation was well documented in Diana Johnstone’s CIRCLE IN THE DARKNESS.

This was a strange “press conference”, devoted almost exclusively to harping on Nato, Ukraine, possible war and other such topics that we have been fed with for the past months by the press. Not a single word about corruption in the Russian government. Why did no journalist ask about the strange dealings of Tatiana Golikova, “spare prime minister”; who keeps gobbling state funds to feed her husband’s and stepson’s firm Novitok? They produce the necessary “vaccines” against this so-called “epidemy” that comes in very handy to those who profit financially from it. They might keep it going forever …. Corruption… Read more »

PS.

And where does the embezzled money go? Golikova’s family buys with it golf courses and mansions on the Costa del Sol in Spain.

Why does the current Russian president turn a blind eye on this ongoing corruption? One really wonders ….

US journalists can not ask questions about corruptions without the laughter of the audience. Honestly no state is as corrupt as the US. Even the DOJ can’t avoid to stick to the government in a very incest manner.

The entire US Military-Industrial Complex is a gigantic and corrupt operaton. See Smedley Butler’s book “War is a Racket”.from 1935. If it was bad then, it’s so much worse now. It even necessitates the destruction of nations.

Another topic that was not touched at the so-called “press conference”: Why is it that the Russian Federation, owning immense wealth of natural resources, cannot cope with the task of eradication extreme poverty? Why do the rich get richer, the poorer get poorer every year? This is like the times of the tsarist regime. Glamour and wealth on top – misery at the bottom. The party “United Russia” promised to cope with poverty in Russia back in 2003: poverty “humiliates a person” and “insults the whole country” – the party wrote in its manifesto. In 2008, the party committed itself… Read more »

HOW TO SAVE ON PUBLIC EXPENSES:

ZNAK REPORTS:

In Chelyabinsk, deputies proposed to deprive the head of the district of his official car

The independent deputies of the Tsentralny district of Chelyabinsk want to take away the official car from the head of the district, Viktor Ereklintsev. 

In the opinion of the opposition, the Central District is not so large that the head needs to use a car, he can move around and ride to work by public transport.

This is a very good idea and could be applied to Moscow as well. All the government officials do not really need official cars. They can use public transport (it is a lot cheaper). The money saved could be used for social projects.

Helping the population with socially good programmes instead of squandering money on the rich boyars is always a good idea. It is magnanimity used in the right place.

Had the Tsars known this they would not have lost their power in the 1917 October Revolution.

It might be a good idea for those at the top today, to study Russian History carefully so as not to repeat past mistakes.

:      In the Russian city of Yekaterinburg, people are very angry because of rising prices and low living standards. All in all, they do not like the government very much in this Urals city. ZNAK REPORTS: We conducted a survey to find out what questions passers-by would ask Putin on the streets of Yekaterinburg. Poverty became the main theme.  Older people complained about low pensions, while young people complained about high prices in stores. “Simple products, eggs are expensive!” – a young man wondered. “Why, with its colossal natural resources, is Russia among the ten poorest countries in the world? I earn 13.000… Read more »

And spraying people with silver so they can enter the so-called “press conference” of the current tsar is also not a good idea, especially not when this silver spraying operation costs more than a billion dollars, while in Russia people live below the minimum living standard.

Exploiting people and squandering tax payers’ money is truly not a very clever thing. It will hit those squanderers on the head like a bumerang.

There is great unrest in the URALS REGION. If a revolution is started in Russia, it will be here, in the Urals, where it will begin, just like it did about 110 years ago, when the Ural Bolsheviks decided to kill the last Tsar. ZNAK reports: In the Urals, acid was poured over the cars of city officials. Unidentified persons doused two cars of officials of the Sosva administration in the Sverdlovsk region with a liquid for removing paint from metal, containing acid and alkali. The cars of the deputy head of the department of municipal service, legal and personnel… Read more »

Another curiosity about this so-called “press conference” was the amount of money for installations to “spray the journalists” with silver particles. MEDUZA REPORTS: Why were journalists attending Vladimir Putin’s annual press conference sprayed with silver particles? Around 500 journalists were invited to attend . But even those with invitations couldn’t just waltz right inside. First, they had to pass through a disinfection booth installed at the entrance, which sprayed attendees with silver particles. Then, they had to don special protective masks treated with an “antibacterial solution of nanosilver.” The Presidential Administrative Directorate spent a grand total of 117 million rubles (about $1.6… Read more »

A lavish expenditure indeed: $1.6 million (dollars, not rubles, dear readers!) just to organize a so-called “press conference” in the Manezh of Moscow that lasted FOUR HOURS. FOUR MILLION DOLLARS PER HOUR! Grandiose! Extravagant! I doubt that the last Tsar of Russia, who was shot in Yekaterinburg, in Juli 1918, ever spent that much money for one hour of his silly costume balls at his palace in Saint Petersburg. But maybe he did, who knows. Regarding that so-called “press conference” in Moscow: A tele-conference (with social distancing) might have been a bit cheaper.

Correction: not four million – but 400.000 dollars per hour. Well this is really cheap, isn’t it?

Next time I suggest they spray diamonds instead of silver, so the hand-picked 507 “journalists” attending these so-called “press conferences” have a pretty souvenir to take home.

Well, how about little diamonds the size of 10 carats each?
