    And the more modest Russians figured out how to beat the fifth columnists at their own game, by filming them in their lies and deceit. Hence why they have such low ratings than ever. Add to that, with the build up of the NATO BS against Russia and Russians, they ruin all chances of said overthrow by support both ways for these fifth columnists. As people realize that these guy's are part of US gangs and they are the ones who wish ill upon Russia as a whole. Shooting themselves in the foot.

    Plus with the decline in viewers of western media, their messages (BS) will be even less heard.

    So Putin wax figure was placed in Jagodina wax figure museum (Serbia). Local politician promised it if Russians used their power of veto few months ago which happened.

    This is some pretty wild shit. Worth a read, anyhow. I put the article in this thread because this is something  they've been trying to hang on Putin's neck for a decade.

    If true, he better join Snowden and move to Russia as soon as possible with whatever evidence he has.

    Well, here it is, the stuff Moscow was warning about last week. This is a very big article that goes into a lot of detail. When reading it bear in mind that this is just a tiny part of the investigation by the journalists. It does not seem to be picking on Putin in particular, it is going for politicians and bad guys all over the world. Unless the rest is just a smokescreen for this part!

    EDIT: this investigation was part funded by a George Soros funded organisation as well as USAID. So a really balanced investigation! Incidently there were few US names on the list. Pure coincidence of course. This is the ZH thread carrying it. To say that the commenters were cynical would be an understatement. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-04-03/unprecedented-leak-exposes-criminal-financial-dealings-some-worlds-wealthiest-people


    Sergey Roldugin leads a double life.

    In his public life, he’s a recognized master musician, a Russian People’s Artist and professor. His other incarnation is as a lifelong friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The ramifications of that life, until today, have been hidden from the world behind trusts and offshore companies that moved around billions of dollars, funneled “donations” from Russia’s richest businessmen into palaces and investments and controlled the activities of strategic Russian enterprises.

    In a way, Roldugin has not been lying. He doesn’t have millions. He has billions.

    How did a cellist manage to build this colossal offshore empire and is it really his? Novaya Gazeta reporters found some of the answer in the Panama Papers, documents obtained from a Panama-based offshore services provider called Mossack Fonseca. The documents were received by the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung and shared by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) with the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and Novaya Gazeta.

    It was this investigation, which took more than a year to complete, that was targeted by the president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov this week, calling it an “information attack against Vladimir Putin.”

    ...................................................................................

    Avto Holdings also had a secret 10-year option agreement to buy 100 percent of Avtoinvest for just $100,000 allowing them to control the lagest KamAZ stakeholder.

    Similar agreements between Troika and offshore companies affiliated with Roldugin existed regarding the stock of AvtoVAZ, which manufactures the iconic Lada car. These agreements were different just in dates, names of the companies, stakes and sums of money. But the point remained: offshore companies affiliated with Putin’s friend had privileged rights to control large stakes in strategic Russian enterprises, to receive dividends, and to buy these stakes for laughable sums.

    ...................................................................................

    Rodulgin Responds

    Reporters from Novaya Gazeta met Roldugin after his concert and the cellist invited them into his dressing room. When they asked him about offshore companies, he thoughtfully dodged the question: “Guys, honestly, I can’t comment at this time. I have to take a look and find out what I can say and what I can’t.”

    “I understand the topic is serious. Do you do business or not? Where’s the money from? Whose are they? I know all this. This is all delicate,” the cellist said.

    Reporters asked Roldugin about specific offshore companies, as well as their deals with well- known Russian companies such as KamAZ, the AvtoVAZ, Vi and others, and whether he had anything to do with it.

    “I was connected to this business long ago. Before Perestroika. It happened. And then it grew and these things happened,” he said.

    However, most of these transactions occurred between 2006 and 2009, many years after perestroika.

    “This money is also used to subsidize the House of Music,” he said, referring to a music school where Roldugin serves as director in St Petersburg. He promised to talk to reporters in a few days but did not answer calls after that.

    Novaya Gazeta asked a person from Roldugin’s circle for one word to characterize the famous Russian cellist. Without hesitation he replied: “Call him the ‘caretaker’. That works”.

    VP does it again, not a name, not a signature, not a single penny. Well at least Parashenka could take a page or two from VP's book.

    Just so you know Very Happy


    "Putin is No Longer Traveling Abroad, Reflecting His Own Isolation, Panfilov Says


    Paul Goble

    Staunton, April 19 – Vladimir Putin has not gone abroad since November 2015, except for a brief visit to Belarus which he does not consider a separate country, and thereby has “isolated himself” from world leaders in ways that in part recall the behavior of his early Soviet predecessors, according to Oleg Panfilov.

    But unlike them, Putin has been able to attract both telephonic contacts from Western leaders and a regular flow of Western foreign ministers and other senior officials, a flow that reinforces his authority among the Russian people by playing to his obvious conviction that the world should come to him rather than the other way round.

    In a commentary for RFE/RL, Panfilov, a professor at Tbilisi’s Ilya State University and the former director of the Moscow Center for Extreme Journalism, points to Putin’s lack of foreign travel as “an important detail” of current Russian and international policy that has seldom been noted (ru.krymr.com/content/article/27681959.html).

    Putin’s absence of travel over the last year is especially striking, the Russian scholar says, because between 2000 when he first became president and 2014 when he annexed Ukraine’s Crimea and invaded the Donbas, the current Kremlin leader made “202 working, official and state visits to various countries, half of which were to the countries of the post-Soviet space.”

    The Kremlin leader’s restricted travel abroad now “repeats the history of the first decades of Soviet power when the first leaders self-isolated themselves.” After 1917, Lenin never once went abroad, and Stalin did so only twice, to Tehran in 1943 and Potsdam in 1945, places where the Soviet army was nearby or in occupation of.

    Travel by chiefs of state and heads of government have many purposes, Panfilov points out; and in the first part of his rue, “foreign trips were part of Putin’s cult of personality, especially after 2002” when he took control of Russian television and could thus ensure how his trips would be covered.

    “Each of his trips were then accompanied by lengthy reports” designed to show Russians that their leader was someone other world leaders respected and wanted to meet. Obviously, Kremlin-controlled television did not show the protests which greeted Putin during most of his foreign visits, protests sparked by the murder of journalists and opponents and the invasions of Georgia and Ukraine.

    In recent years, Panfilov continues, many of Putin’s trips abroad were occasions of major protest actions, even in countries like Armenia and Belarus, which are supposed to be pro-Moscow in orientation. That undercuts what Putin wants to achieve and reflects the fact that he has little to offer post-Soviet states.

    Regarding countries beyond the former Soviet orbit, Putin’s situation is “still worse.” These countries were not that closely connected to Russia in the past; and they and especially their populations do not approve of what he has been doing in recent years within Russia and toward Russia’s neighbors.

    “With the introduction of sanctions, the West has given Putin to understand that it does not intend to put up with this anymore,” Panfilov continues. As a result, the Kremlin cannot save itself by means of its own propaganda which now is effective exclusively on the Russian audience and with the single goal” of maintaining Putin in power.

    Obviously, politicians and diplomats will continue to go to Moscow: they and their countries do not want a war with Russia. But the fact that Putin no longer is welcome abroad means that he cannot use such events for his own purposes and thus, Panfilov implies, the Kremlin leader is isolated in ways that he hasn’t been before – and by his own hand."

    Worth remembering what Putin said to UN September last year about western interference in Arab world. "Do you realise what you have done". With all respect to innocent citizens of France, and foreign nationals, including one Russian, killed in Nice, perhaps they will start to wake up and realise that they have been wrong, and Putin is right. But I think they are not man enough for this, and reading statements from western politicians about this, they are in a deep state of denial.

    Sad thing is that this sort of thing will be brought up in the future to justify any action with negative consequences they have ever made... past or present or future.

    Remember it is us or them... Razz

    Erdogan, Putin due to meet in person over thawing of bilateral ties


    Source: Xinhua 2016-07-17 22:09:33

    ANKARA, July 17 (Xinhua) -- Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will meet with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in the first week of August, Anadolu Agency reported Sunday.

    It will be the first face-to-face meeting between Erdogan and Putin since Turkish warplanes downed a Russian jet last November.

    The move came after a telephone call from Putin, according to the report.

    The Russian president said he stood by Turkey's elected government and offered his condolences over the victims of Friday night's coup attempt.

    Putin stressed there should not be anti-constitutional acts of violence, while wishing for restoring stability in the country.

    In the telephone conversation, he also urged Turkey to ensure the safety of Russian tourists in the country.

    Erdogan asserted that Turkey would take all the necessary measures, reported Daily News.
