    Alas it's not enough.

    Soon enough Europe will be taken over by Ukrainian/Polish/Romanian russophobe alliance, the Islamic caliphates of Londonabad, Berlin & Paris, and the homosexual-transsexual commonwealth No

    And TBH, Russia should get rid of their "gay propaganda" law. Seriously. It's the most effective propaganda weapon for the west. I know that the law is not as... black and white as it is made out to be, AT ALL, and russophobia would be strong in the west anyway, but still. It's fucking pointless. We keep hearing about it every single day in the western MSM.

    I do agree, however, that eurovision seems to "overpromote" LGBTs, which is annoying and kinda.. fishy, but some songs are actually good (like Loreen's Euphoria) and the last part of the show (results) is always very entertaining, especially last night.

    Is Lithuania the most russophobe place on Earth? 0 points for Russia! That was fucking ridiculous. Very Happy Not politicized at all. Fucking assholes.

    Who cares what a bunch of Europussies think. If they hate Russias laws, to fricking bad. Point out their hipocracy when the next time theor beloved leaders visit Saudi Arabia or the like, where they actually kill gays, unlike in Russia.

    People have this mentality that Europe/USA/Canada are the world. They are not. They like to think they are, but they arent. All these small, pissant European nations who want to hate on Russia, will hate on them for anything. Be it their stance on gays, their stance on Ukraine, or what underwear they wore. It doesnt matter. They have a very racist and hatred filled mentality over Russians. And it isnt just Russians that get such Eurotrash treatment either - many get it from Africa, Middle east and Asia.

    Europes days as being influential and worthy are coming to an end. They are trying to do all this political correctness BS to try and save themselves by getting more people to love them, but all it will do is force their citizens into nationalism and hatred, which is happening, and many will not want to work with them.

    I agree with flaming. At this point, sever ties with Europe and let them make the first move to try and mend ties. Nations that want to work with them are free to do so, but if Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, etc doesnt want to and wants to see Russians dead or Their leader dead or whatever, I say let them get gas, metals, materials, and business elsewhere. They are heavily reliant on selling their crap to Russia. I say let them sell it to someone else.

    Eurovision is trash. Russia should outright ban it and say "we dont work with LGBT promotion supporting agencies"

    Apropos gaytrash methods of political abuse.

    This video is banned in germany via GEMA which is nothing else today but a political tool to ban videos for german IP's despite they have no ownership of the music, this shit censorship private company that is unconstitunional because they are registered as a non profit organisation but make hundred millions each year, have no other purpose but blocking content because of political reasons like they blocked several videos of News ANNA or last year on MAIDAN blocked RT videos.

    It was the jury's fault, take a look.
    Eurovision wrote:In accordance with the Rules of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest, Lithuania voted with 50% televoting and 50% jury voting

    Detailed Results

    Televoting rank -> Estonia 1, Latvia 2, Russia 3

    Jury
    A - Lauras Luciunas (music producer) - Russia 26
    B - Jolita Vaitkeviciene (choir Conductor) - Russia 13
    C - Jurga Cekatauskaite (journalist) - Russia 26
    D - Jurgis Bruzga (singer) - Russia 19
    E - Rosita Civilyte (singer) - Russia 10

    Combined -> Russia 11 = 0 points

    Well Lithuanian jury didn't give points to Russia because of politics (Russian singer singing about peace and etc,) Televoters didn't give a crap and voted and gave predictable votes. Estonia, Latvia and Russia were top 3. Do these countries deserve them points. Hell should I know, all contest was so bland. People just vote for neighbors. Russia has plenty of them. Even Georgia gave Russia quite good score.
    But anyway I was watching Eurovision with MUTE ON and Iron maiden was playing in the background. This contest is so crap:D

    Didn't Eurovision introduce this "jury" system after Russia won the contest in 2008? Up until then the winner of Eurovision was decided with a direct vote of citizens of countries who participate in the Eurovision. But after Russia won the current jury system was taken in place of direct vote.

    I guess they made this change to prevent Russia from winning to contest again. With these "juries" they can make sure that only the "correct" nations win the contest.

    In 2003 EBU prohibited T.aT.u. to kiss on stage after complains from several countries, with Ireland among them that gave the victory to Turkey in the last moment after switching to the backup jury for technical reasons.

    claims yet.. of a crisis going and Russia economy in shatters are Obama claims.
    or endless lines for bread..

    I liked the attitude of that American basketball player. He clearly respected the Russian culture and did not have the same "cocky" attitude towards Russia that some Finnish hockey players do who come to play hockey in the Russian KHL league.

    Russian Fantasy Film About Dragons Sets Chinese Box Office on Fire

    Russian film 'He's a Dragon," which was released in Russia in December 2015, was already an internet hit with viewers of Chinese pirate videos.


    "He's a Dragon" was the second most popular film in Chinese cinemas on Friday, making 18.35 million yuan ($2.77 million) in revenue on its first day, Russian newspaper Vedomosti reported.

    According to a bulletin of Chinese film distributors, cited by Chinese portal Cbooo.ru, on Friday the film was the most popular of the day's new releases. In a single day in China, the film made more money than its entire run at the box office in Russia and the CIS earlier this year, where it took a total of $1.87 million.

    "He's a Dragon" was a hit with Chinese internet users earlier this year, when several pirate versions of the film with Chinese subtitles appeared on the internet. One of them received 3.7 million views in just five days, Vedomosti reported.

    In February the Bazelevs studio, which produced the film, told RIA Novosti that the film's popularity came as a surprise to distributers. The dragon is an important symbol in Chinese culture, and is traditionally seen as a good omen that symbolizes success, power and good luck.

    "When we presented the film to Chinese distributors, they replied that local people are unlikely to be interested in the picture because of its plot. The dragon is portrayed as a negative character who brings evil, which fundamentally contradicts the national image," said Valeriya Dobrolyubova, head of Bazelevs sales department.

    Nevertheless, the film is on course to become the highest-grossing Russian film released in China. That title is currently held by the 2013 war film Stalingrad, which took a total of $11.8 million at the Chinese box office, and $1.7 million on its first day.

    China's highest-grossing film of all time is the Chinese–Hong Kong production The Mermaid, a whacky comedy starring Stephen Chow (of Kung Fu Hustle fame) released in February 2016. The film, which took 3.391 billion yuan ($512 million) at the Chinese box office, tells the story of a group of mermaids fighting against a property tycoon who threatens the future of their habitat. Eventually, the businessman falls in love with one of the mermaids.

    Small question: what is NGO Officers of Russia ?

    https://rbth.com/news/2016/09/25/russian-ngo-blocks-entrance-to-jock-sturges-exhibition-in-moscow_633043

    The Officers of Russia non-governmental organization has blocked entrance to the exhibition of the U.S. photographer Jock Sturges in Moscow in a protest against promoting his works, the organization’s head, and chair of the Public Chamber’s defense commission, Anton Tsvetkov said on Sep. 25.

    Social networks and the media wrote Sturges’ works picturing nude adolescents are pornographic. Russia’s high-ranking legislator Elena Mizulina said the exhibition should be closed at once.

    f considered in Russia, the works by Jock Sturges could be qualified as crime.

    "Right, he could have become famous by good pictures, but remember, this man used to participate in crimes. And he likewise was brought to responsibility also in the United States, though later on was justified. But that is under their legislation, and under our legislation taking pictures of nude children and exposing them is not allowed," he said.

    https://www.rt.com/news/360588-sturges-exhibition-moscow-controversy/?utm_source=browser&utm_medium=aplication_chrome&utm_campaign=chrome

    An exhibition by US photographer Jock Sturges, best known for his works featuring teenage nudity, has been shut down in Moscow after some protesters blocked the venue and accused the artist of shooting child pornography.

    Camouflaged men, representing the NGO Officers of Russia, turned up at the Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography on Sunday afternoon. They blocked the entrance to the building, saying they were going to evaluate the contents of the exhibition for “pedophilic” contents.

    After negotiations with the activists, the Lumiere Brothers Center decided to close the controversial exhibition.
