Mr. Mercouris wonders what ordinary ukrainians think. Well, they are starting to prepare for ristvo – ukrainian ( and russian) christmas. The idea that ukraine or russia would go to war was always ridiculous, but with christmas around the corner, it’s just bizarre. And of course, even in ukraine more and more people are noticing that the U.S. has gone insane and is led by a demented grandpa. Some more service-oriented ukrainian divtschinas know his son very well. What a sweet bunch, these Bidens. Even Zelensky himself was noticebly schocked when he returned from washington. Not exactly the kind of… Read more »

AEROFLOT also lost lots of money, due to Covid, and will lose some more if QR codes will become compulsary. Inflight magazine reports: Aeroflot Notches $1.3bn Annual Loss For 2020 Aeroflot this week shared its financial results for 2020. As with most carriers across the globe, the figures aren’t something to celebrate. Altogether, the airline’s net loss for the year amounted to RUB 96.5 billion (~$1.3 billion). The operator’s management had to implement crucial measures such as the restructuring of lease payment schedules to help reduce fixed and variable costs.  The flag carrier of Russia highlights that the most significant… Read more »

The Moscow Times is mainly a brothel newsletter and ad service (literally), when it is not publishing straight CIA lies fresh from Faggy Bottom.
Why would you quote them on anything?

Hello Platon, the second text I posted is quoted from an Inflight Magazine, the amounts of money lost by AEROFLOT are from the airline’s bullletin. So I suppose they are not faked. The first text about the plunging stock market is taken from the Moscow Times because it appeared in English. The same news appeared in Russian news media as well. Since they are difficult to translate into English, I quoted the English text version from the Moscow Times. I am not a stock market specialist, so I cannot really verify if the numbers are correct. Maybe they are –… Read more »

And once more, the Russian stock market tumbles! THE MOSCOW TIMES reports: Russian Markets Tumble on Discovery of ‘Worst Ever’ Coronavirus StrainUpdated: one hour ago Russian financial markets have tumbled in a day of global market turmoil following the discovery of a new coronavirus strain … The ruble sank 2% against major currencies by Friday lunchtime in Moscow trading, hitting a seven-month low of 75.7 against the U.S. dollar and 85.2 against the euro. The sell-off caps a punishing week for Russian markets, which started with what traders have dubbed Black Monday— a day of heavy losses prompted by fears of… Read more »

I don’t underestimate the Deep Lobby’s desire or motivation or political facility for creating disruption, Their interests only overlap “The US” when they are aligned and politicians, including but not limited to the POTUS are always, only temporarily useful. -War would suit the MIC for obvious reasons, -The Western energy sector wishes to strangle what they don’t control, -Banks always capture more debt from war, but they also desire disruption to keep interest rates low, which prevents margin calls on their crazy bets keeping them alive, albeit as zombies. -The Neocons, the Bomb-loving factions and the media would cheer it… Read more »

If this latest German Coalition group holds they will appoint a Green, Ms Baerbock as Außenminister. She is on record as opposing Nord stream 2.With Ursula von der Leyen they would be quite capable of cutting off European noses to spite the Russian’s face.
Im going out to chop some wood.

Very entertaining to watch the comedy characters playing with the warmth and budgets of their citizens. If the Greens and the geniuses in Brussels persist with their dreams, German industries will remain shut down and Russia will divert more and more of its long-term energy sales to China and other Asian states, and perhaps to the USA. The EU will be faced with tighter energy markets and Russia will recover its investment in NS2 through higher prices, even if it never delivers any gas. The EU might eventually install enough wind and solar energy plant to make up for closing… Read more »

I don’t think Russian faces will be concerned, however German faces will be, especially when they contract frost bite. L.O.L. If the U.S. is genuinely in a difficult predicament regarding fuels, I can’t see them exporting any to Germany to keep the fires going. L.O.L. Serves them right, IMHO, for kissing Yankee butts on this issue.
