    Yes, but Russia ultimately lost the Crimean war. They put an impressive resistance, but lost.
    Anyway, I full agree that this myth is utterly stupid. Just to bring one example, Russia defeated Napoleon in the height of his power in 1812-1813. His Grande Armée was the biggest fighting force ever seen until then (only one century later, in WWI, there would exist bigger armies). And Russia not only kicked them out of its territory, but didn't stop until reaching Paris.

    It was more like a stalemate, biased Anglo-Saxon historians claim it's a defeat just like they claim D-Day defeated Hitler when Operation Bagration was the actual operation that crushed the 3rd Reich. They only managed to get the Russian Empire to sign a treaty on the Black Sea, at most it was barely even a Pyrrhic victory. Let's think about this critically: The combined forces of the empires of Britain, France, and the Ottomans weren't even able to permanently capture any piece of Crimea for themselves...is that really a victory??? It's quite embarrassing, their combined forces couldn't accomplish more than that, and you can even claim it was a morale victory for the Russian Empire. Atlanticists have been trying to strip Crimea from the Russians for the past 2 centuries, and have failed every time lol!

    Explain what is the anti-cult law? Why have such a law? Can a person share the Gospel of Christ on the street without a permit like here in America?

    This is primarily against NGO's who constantly try to undermine VVP and the Orthodox Church. Religious toleration here is vast and normal, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, whatever, all get along well and live side by side. The evangelicals seem to have a penchant for trying to undermine The State and after years of warnings and evangelicals actively supporting Ukraine events publicly it was decided enough was enough. If you have an official Church, no problem, let those who may be interested come to your Church. If you want to worship in your home with friends and acquaintances, no one cares and no one will kick in your door. Just don't stand at the gates of the local Orthodox Church or Mosque and try to dragoon worshipers to come to your Church. That is considered to be bad form.

    As an aside, the Baptist Church in this berg is still operating and no one has mentioned shutting it down.


    Thanks for the report. We need this sort of information offset the hate propaganda generated by the NATO mass media.

    RUSSIANS OUTSTRIP ALIENS & TERRORISTS AS MOST WIDESPREAD ENEMY IN VIDEO GAMES



    The Washington Post newspaper conducted a research of “the enemies that players encounter in digital games” and concluded that Russians are the most widespread enemy in modern video games.

    According to the newspaper, researchers decided to “turn to a popular genre, First Person Shooters (FPS), in which a player, armed with a weapon, seeks to destroy an enemy.” As the article noted, “representations of the bad guys in video games could shape players’ perceptions of who is a threat.”

    Reportedly, the researchers compiled a dataset of the 57 best-selling FPS during 2001-2013, each with more than 1.5 million units sold.

    “We coded information such as the identity of the protagonist (the shooter), the context and location of the conflict, and the identity of the enemy in each game. We grouped enemies into several categories: generic humans; aliens; monsters, including zombies; those depicted as terrorists from the Middle East or Latin America; Russians, as the state, ultra-nationalists, or separatists; and World War II enemies and others, including Iraq and North Korea,” the authors of the article, Brandon Valeriano and Philip Habel, wrote.

    “We find that Russians are enemies in 21 percent of games (12 games), one fewer instance than generic humans (13 games) and one more than aliens (11 games). Even if we consider Latin American (6 games) and Middle Eastern terrorists (5 games) as a single combined category, the number of games with Russian enemies is still greater,” they concluded.




    The researchers pointed out that this is an interesting finding that FPS gamers often encounter Russians as the enemy.

    “Long after the end of the Cold War, and despite real-world concerns over global terrorism and other security issues, Cold War-era enemies in video games could be shaping attitudes toward modern-day Russia,” the article reads. “The follow-up question is whether having seen Russians depicted as enemies in games means that Western gamers will be less likely to be tolerant of Russian aggression.”

    The researchers plan to continue their study of FPS games from the points of views of gender and ethnic diversity.

    https://southfront.org/russians-outstrip-aliens-terrorists-as-most-widespread-enemy-in-video-games/

    These NATO video games are just among the many propaganda tools they use to brainwash their own people into hating the Russians for no meaningful reason. Russian game software developers should make their own games where NATO is the enemy Cool

    The US establishment has a full bore hate for ethnic Russians.

    Once again some turdlets far away have a hate on for Russia. This must go back to the British hate that predates the USA
    but has been boosted by the cold war and recently. None of these turdlets have any reason to hate Russia due to Russia's
    actions and some historical grievance. These turdlets feel that they own the planet and that Russians are in the way of their
    ambitions. Russia needs to stop with nuclear arms reduction ASAP. Time to go back to serious MAD. These turdlets should
    wet their beds at night with fear instead of planning for the extermination of Russia.

    NATO, and especially US, hypocrisy is on a whole other plane. To posture and bleat about a fake action while routinely perpetrating
    such actions around the world in the name of self-interest (e.g. manifest destiny, exceptionalism, self-anointed global leadership) takes
    the cake. It really is a form of depravity.

    If Obama knew anything about Russia or Russians the international situation between Russia and the US would be rather different now than it is.

    Obama said Hillary was the best potential candidate for US president so even the US population does not listen to him... why should we?

    Obama is Russophobic , All his statements indicate that.

    He did no good to make Russia-US relation better on the contrary it is at the worst since 25 years.

    By his own admission he Arm Twisted Even Europeans against developing better relations with Russia.

    He wants to poision the pond before he leaves so that the next president is hampered by so called CIA/DNI analysis etc

    Hillary Clinton win was suppose to be BO 3.0 but American people had different ideas and that is difficult for him personally to accept that he lost his own legacy and could not make Hillary Win.

    Now he wants to blame the loss on Russia to keep Democrats from taking the blame , Very Poor Leadership from BO and wont help his Nation or his Party if they dont own it up.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo published earlier on Wednesday a caricature on the Russian Defense Ministry Tu-154 aircraft crash in the Black Sea depicting the falling aircraft and a musician from the Alexandrov military choir, who is making a wailing sound "aaaaaa." The caption says "The repertoire of the army choir is expanding."

    Few of many cheering, comments on local newspapers by Muslims (mainly from Bosnia, some from Western Serbia) regarding Russian aircraft crash:



    "I am never happy about someones else pain and suffering but in the times when so many children are dying, they wished to sing. Well they sang their last song."



    "I dont care about criminals that bombed civilians, women and children in Syria, especially Aleppo. Karma is irresistable, it was just an instant justice".



    "On morbid assigment they were, in foreign country to killers they sang, and in Black sea they landed".



    "What a tragedy, fuck them. Allah punished them, big thanks, and this is just the beginning".

    So if they died because it was Allahs will then the women and children and presumably innocent cats and dogs being murdered every second in Syria must be Allahs will too.

    All credit to the great humanitarian Assad... building so many schools and childrens hospitals... it is almost like he knew terrorist scum were going to try to take over his country...

    This Allah seems to be a sadistic war loving prick.

    Hey Garry B and others. There was a politician on CNN who was saying that the Baltic countries of Latvia, Lithanian and Estonia are afraid that Russia will invade them. They are members of NATO. They say that what happened in Ukraine could happen to them. I want to know is all of this true? Could somebody explain to me the relationship between Russia and the Baltic states?

    Hahahahaahahaha... Bloody Hilarious...

    They say what happened in the Ukraine could happen to them?

    I don't think the US wants to payroll another three coups to overthrow legitimate elected governments in that region as the current ones are already their bitches... it would be a waste of money... not that that would normally stop them.

    The Baltic states are rabid anti russians... just like the Poles and the majority of the Ukrainians... including those being bombed by the government in Kiev at the moment.

    They are the whiny states that complain yet have a better lifestyle than the rest of the country when they were part of the Soviet Union, and now that they are out all of their problems are Russias fault. Russia is better rid of them and does not want them back. They can be the EUs problem.

    But their anti Russia attitude was useful when Abummer was in power, but now Hilary got some water thrown on her and she melted away they are scared that Trump might not want to treat Russia as an enemy and all of a sudden they are stuck in the middle of the bed they have made.

    They used to have a lot of trade with their neighbour Russia but with all the anti Russia crap they have proudly cut those ties to show their loyalty to the EU and US.

    Their choice now is to either drum up EU support for more NATO forces in their country that they can sponge off of, or try to return to old relations with Russia... and I hope in the case of the latter that Russia tells them to go fuck themselves.

    Now instead of moving freight through foreign (ie baltic) ports the Russians are using their own ports and keeping the money they used to spend in foreign countries...

    1. Maidanists are rewriting history. Ukraine used to be an integral part of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union. Baltic states were independent between the world wars, Ukraine was not.

    2. Large parts of Ukraine were reasonably pro-Russian only a few years ago. The big issue is that Ukraine has been a mess since 1991, that's why the coup, revolution and anti-Russian hysteria were possible in the first place. First and foremost this whole thing is an internal conflict.

    3. Baltic countries are stable and they have reasonably high living standards, especially Estonia, Ukraine is the opposite. They have no large pro-Russian regions, unlike Ukraine. (Crimea, in particular, and Donbass are pro-Russian, yes, really.)

    And regarding the BS propaganda which is saying that Ukraine's failure as a state is Russia's fault: Ukraine was not a puppet state: the country was not even militarily allied with Russia, unlike many other post-Soviet states that have been much more succesful. FFS, compare Belarussian (aka "the last dictatorship in Europe") living standards to Ukraine.

    Perfect sample of wishful thinking and fantasy projection.   It seems that most western media product is of this class of
    worthless excrement.   If that is hard to believe then look at all the pieces on Russia's economy after the 2014
    sanctions.   Russia should have collapsed by now according to this spew.
