    Russian govt to consider prospects for development of Sochi resort cluster

    Putin said he had in mind the recreational territories of the National Park, adding: "This is fully legitimate and even reasonable from the point of view of the park’s development. Vladimir Potanin said, on his part, the data he had indicated that the infrastructure of resorts making up the Sochi cluster stood in need of active development. The pistes of Roza Khutor alone were visited by 5,000 to 10,000 mountain skiers daily, he said in this connection. "The pistes are overcrowded and hotels are booked up to full capacity," Potanin said. "A problem has cropped up this year, as we can’t service everyone wishing to get there and visitors had to queue up to get to the chairlifts. Crowds of visitors were noted on the slopes, too." wrote:

    I posted this in the nuclear threat section..but will post it here.. it shows a genuine journalist Alex Jones..
    that says the things the way he understand them to be. as an example of how media should be..
    many times he even accept phone calls on his studio and ask people his opinions about is whether he is crazy
    in what he believe or if indeed he has a point.  Honesty is all you need for any credibility.. and to show you are open
    to different points of view.. Smile

    a recent report of alex jones about Russia nuclear bunkers.. and the threat to a world war with US.
    and his nation being the ones provoking it.

    Avoid Alex Jones like the plague.

    Once in a great while, when the planets align during a total solar eclipse, Alex Jones may be right about something, but most of the time he's a rambling conspiracy monger. It's best just to avoid infowars and AJ.

    You really are a nuthead kind of russophobic how it gets. RT shits on every single journalism, they do not make up stories, they don't have to, they just use the bullshit americunts say and that is enough for them to show how the world is. Your garbage talk about RT while not giving a single example what RT does wrong, or what they fake or cover up while i can you show you dozens of made up stories from every MSM of our western bullshit.

    I've seen a fair share of sensationalist reporting from RT. Not necessarily dishonest, but sensational. Their military fact checking is also terrible, I can't wait to see them massacre Armata during their coverage of the victory day parade. Rolling Eyes

    They're biased, but it's practically their mission statement that they're "alternative" media targeting western audiences, there to report what the western MSM doesn't.

    From all wide spread media they are the least biased, they don't need to make much but to just show the double standards of americunt officials.

    Go ahead instead of making claims show a specific footage that is biased and far away from reality? I don't need to post anything myself since daily we see videos with stupid lies and 180° twists of US media.

    They do have their sensationalism and preferences.. ie.. try to show too much of everything that is wrong in USA..
    Interestingly however the negativity , most of it comes from Americans special sections at RT.. Like Breaking the set..
    So Russia have no control on the topics they cover.. they have full freedom to discuss whatever issue exist in America ,(because they live there) that they will like to see changed.. ie. ...But notice how the conductor of breaking the set
    was allowed in her program to also criticize Russia "invasion of Ukraine" as she saw it.. She even told it was wrong
    what Russia was doing there.. in her RT show.. so this proof beyond doubt.. of the full freedom they have of speech.

    So the sensationalism and negativity comes mostly from americans presenters . and they obviously will take advantage and of their time to try to change the politics of their nation.. even though is called RT.. the offices
    and news are called RT america.. So is based around American politics.. Russia government have no need to
    self critic itself since the west do have enough media for that.

    Alex Jones is a Genuine honest investigator.. .. 100%.
    This is why i see him.. I do not agree with his opinions.. all the time.. and sometimes he is paranoid ,
    but he clearly shows that what he reports is what he believe.. not something fabricated or invented like CNN or BBC or VICE. and if that wasn't enough he is always open for people opinions and take phone calls , to see if he is seeing things in the wrong way.. that is the way Investigations have to be done..
    So while he is too much paranoid at times.. he is genuine.. and he brings very excelent reports most of the
    times.. Things that are happening behind the scenes..

    This week for example Alex Jones is reporting about US Pentagon exercises ,in all western USA..
    like if a major event or war will happen.. He is also making real good question.. that people often ignore..
    this week.. he is saying.. " Is Our Government preparing for an ISIS false flag attack" ?
    So alex is very good at making people aware of things that usually people does not know and that are happening.
    It was alex the only one in the world ,who reported , how US Government was moving nuclear missiles from military bases without any military escort ,just using civilian trucks services without police or military protection.. Shocked and they went as far as to call the military base why was that?

    He also did an excellent report of Fema concentration camps.. that have barbed wires .. not against people to enter the property .. but to avoid people to escape.

    and this week he is also reporting about Russia underground bunkers for nuclear war protection and how
    the US government is not creating bunkers for all people , like RUssia and others do.. but only for a minority of American elite .

    Sochi Russia’s most popular destination for New Year holidays — deputy minister



    According to Deputy Culture Minister Manilova, Russians are also interested in other tourist sites, including Siberia, Lake Baikal and Kamchatka peninsula in the Far East

    ST PETERBURG, December 4. /TASS/. The Black Sea resort of Sochi has become the most popular New Year destination for Russians, Deputy Culture Minister Alla Manilova said on Friday.

    "Sochi is an all-season resort, the demand is unprecedented," Manilova said. "All hotels for the New Year are already booked."

    According to Manilova, Russians are also interested in other tourist sites, including Siberia, Lake Baikal and Kamchatka peninsula in the Far East.

    Major travel agencies are now focused on the domestic market, she added.

    Russians will enjoy long New Year holidays from January 1 to 10.
