    Pathetic yanquis. I am getting HTTP 502 errors when trying to reach rutube.ru. I go there for the Russian language content
    but apparently even that is too much "propaganda" for the freedom loving west to handle.

    Nothing says "I am on the side of truth and justice" like censorship and disinformation. clown

    SLBMs are hypersonic, so it is not exactly new...

    China is no direct threat to Russia or any other country that doesn't want to bully China like the US and Australia and Japan and their allies do.

    This is a bully worrying that the kids they steal lunch money from have been working out and are carrying weapons... it is no threat if you leave them alone... but you can't do that... you have to steal their lunch money because your parents didn't give you enough you fat greedy bastard...

    Too bad there is no English translation.   The narrator does a good job going through the history of "Ukrainians".   The
    rabid anti-Russian "ethnicity" is the product of machinations by the Austro-Hungarian Empire.  The Rusyns were baited against
    Poles.  Later they became Ruthenians and baited against Russia.   Halichyna serves as a platform for this sick drama.   In this
    region there was an effective assimilation of former Russians into Poland and this transformation did not disappear with time.
    The identity of western "Ukrainians" is a construct that rests on anti-Russian essence.  We had hate for Russia by people
    who did not see any Russians in the 1800s.  

    What people call Ukraine extending to Kiev and the Donbass is not any Ukraine.  Ukraine is a far western zone that should
    be either part of Poland or its own country.   It has no historical or cultural claim on the Soviet-created Ukraine.   The Bolsheviks
    showed their comprador nature when they took the anti-Russian Ukraine project and made it real.  If the Bolsheviks were
    honestly against western imperialism, they should have never used Ukrainian aka the Halichyna dialect and made it into
    the national language imposed on Novorossiya and Malorossiya.   Lenin should be the national hero of Banderites and this
    is not a joke.

    Olkiluoto 3 test production to continue until December
    16 June 2022

    "The issue of foreign material in the steam reheater of the Olkiluoto 3 EPR's turbine has delayed the start of regular electricity generation by a further three months, operator Teollisuuden Voima Oyj (TVO) has announced.

    Material that had detached from the steam guide plates was found in the turbine's steam reheater in May this year, which requires inspection and repair work, TVO said. According to investigations from the plant supplier, this repair work will last until the end of July.
    ...
    "The test production phase will be completed in December 2022, which is when the plant unit's regular electricity production starts," TVO said. Regular electricity production at the EPR unit had previously been expected to begin in September."

    Uhoh. Turns out Finland's savior French EPR nuclear reactor won't be fully operational until deep into the winter.

    Finland used to buy a lot of electricity from Russia via Inter RAO. Then they stopped paying.
    https://www.reuters.com/business/energy/russias-inter-rao-halt-power-exports-finland-due-lack-payment-2022-05-13/

    Russia never actually asked them to pay for electricity in rubles or anything. It is just their supposed act of defiance. Probably counting on this EPR being available before peak energy season. As if Russia selling less energy to someone else will negatively impact the Russian war effort. The Finns hissy fit only makes sense in their brilliant little minds.
    Finland was counting their chickens before they hatched. Much like the Bulgarian government. Their citizens will pay for their hubris come next peak energy season.

    She will be double upset, because not only will they be cutting down CO2 consuming trees, but they will be burning them and releasing the carbon they contain and have collected all these years out into the atmosphere.

    Germany is no different... delaying NSII on purely political grounds and then complaining because their own sanctions have delayed the return of turbines used to shift the gas through the pipelines, so Russia is forced to reduce gas flow at a time when they are scheduled for routine maintenance shutdowns for ten days.

    Germany of course complaining it is all political as they send artillery vehicles and ammunition to nazis to try to kill Russian soldiers... I wonder what they would say if the roles were reversed...

    Actually it is all probably for the best because now the US and the west will have much more to worry about if they invade or bomb a country because Russia is now free to arm anyone they please with almost any weapon they please... this should be fun.

    So Bulgaria has expelled 70 Russian diplomats. Why does Russia still have diplomatic relations with this
    moronic US colony? None of their "governmental" decisions are from Bulgaria. They are all from Washington
    and Brussels.

    Save some money and shut these clowns down.

    That "biomass" is wood. Yet another Orwellian obfuscation term like "oil sands" in Kanada.
    There is no oil in the "oil sands". There is only bitumen which needs to be hydrogenated
    in huge upgrading plants. The tar sands operations in Kanada produce massive lakes (called ponds)
    of acidic, toxic waste. Kanadians love the environment just like the Finns.

    In some cases, yes, but a "wood" as you put it consists of about 20% of a whole generated biomass.
    Only if you combine the whole "wood" in this equation, you will get to 50%, but half of it is waste delivered by the wood industry and orchard business.
    It is agriculture that delivers the other half of a load, and that s not wood.
    And there is one more source of renewable biomass, that are the remains of the sewage system.
    Yup, we can burn the shit that collects while the purifying is being made at sewage treatment plants.

    I wonder if the assassination of Shinzo Abe was related to his stance on Russia. He was murdered during a political campaign.
    If he was pushing a softer line on Russia (I do not know if he was), then I can see some "nationalist" puppet of the US coming
    out of the woodwork to assassinate him.

    Polish resentment at Russia is deranged. Poland incorporated into the Russian Empire:

    1) Poland was expansionist and even tried to regime change the tsar (Time of Troubles). It was part of the
    Catholic drang nach osten against the Orthodox pagans. That it got occupied is normal for European politics
    spanning back 1000 years and before.

    2) Poland was treated very fairly. It was sort of like Finland mostly self-governing political entity. There was no
    religious and cultural assimilation. By contrast Poland as part of the Grand Duchy of Poland and Lithuania did
    religiously and culturally assimilate the Kievan Rus population it occupied after the Tatar-Mongol invasion destroyed
    the Kievan Rus principalities around Kiev and towards the south. There would be no Ukraine today without this
    Polish expansionism.

    The hate for Russia is based on blood libel and fakery. Such as the Warsaw uprising which supposedly the Soviets
    sabotaged. The Polish nationalist regime sitting in London had zero coordination with the USSR. The whole uprising
    was an engineered smear attempt against the USSR by the same war criminal scum that runs NATzO today.

    The Katyn "massacre" is another fake. Forensic evidence proves that the Polish officers in question were seized by
    the German army even if they were initially under Soviet control. The USSR actually bothered to have trials for the
    Polish police and military that participated in various crimes against Soviet civilians before WWII. Gorbie's "admission
    of guilt" establishes Gorbie's comprador credentials and nothing more.

    The Russian government is not the sole decider in Russia. So your question is tendentious. Italy is viewed positively in Russia
    for obvious reasons. Italians do not have a hate hard on for Russia unlike a lot of other U-rope-eans. Portugal is not really on
    the radar and I think that the sentiment is mostly positive. Spain clearly does have a hate hard on for Russia and is still afflicted
    with its Franco past. The behaviour of Spain over many years demonstrates its anti-Russian bias and this is very true today.
    Borrell is a fine specimen of Spanish Russia derangement syndrome.

    Ukraine is Varangia of Askold and Dir, you do not need "Polish expansion" to create Ukraine.

    You also forgot the Ruthenian Drang Nach Westen or westward expansion in 981, 1031, 1086, and even (unsuccessfully) afterwards.

    It's critical for Russia to ask "Manu" a straightforward question (right to his face): against whom are the French nuclear weapons aimed at?

    For a while now, those weapons must not be "aimed at".
    It was a part of the 90s de-escalation process, but in reality nothing else than technical progress.
    You can program the missile navigation systems in seconds while making pre-start procedures. Not like in the 60 when you needed a ton pf preformed cards to be processed ...

    Macron's Approval Rating Drops to 32%, Lowest Since Beginning of COVID-19, Poll Shows. 11.03.2022.

    PARIS (Sputnik) - French President Emmanuel Macron's approval rating dropped to its lowest in November, a study conducted by Elabe showed on Thursday.

    According to the poll, Macron's approval rating was 32% in November after falling 6 percentage points in the previous two months.

    "This is the lowest level since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis," Elabe CEO Bernard Sananez said.
    Macron is losing ground in privileged circles, where he has traditionally enjoyed greater support, the study revealed, adding that the approval rating of Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne in November fell by 2 percentage points to 27%.

    The survey was conducted online from October 31 to November 2 with 1,006 people over the age of 18. The statistical margin of error is between 1.4% and 3.1%.

    Masks are definitely off! Let the sunshine get inside these ratholes!:

    Germany opposed the Russian resolution on the fight against the glorification of Nazism, 11.04.2022.

    Italy, Austria and Germany opposed the Russian resolution on the fight against the glorification of Nazism.

    UN, November 5 - RIA Novosti. Italy, Austria and Germany voted against the Russian resolution aimed at combating the glorification of Nazism, said Grigory Lukyantsev, Foreign Ministry Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law, Deputy Director of the Department for Humanitarian Cooperation and Human Rights.

    “In my memory, this is the first time in history. Even when in 2011 there was a split in the ranks of the European Union and some of the EU member states voted against and some abstained, the representatives of Germany, Italy and Austria swore to us that they would never, for reasons of principle, will be able to vote against the document, which condemns the glorification of Nazism," the diplomat stressed.

    A foreign policy spokesman suggested that political considerations took over in the actions of Rome , Vienna and Berlin.

    On Friday, the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly adopted a draft resolution "Combating the glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to the escalation of contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance." It is voted on annually.

    This year, 106 countries voted in favor of the draft resolution, including, as always, Israel . Not only the United States and Ukraine opposed , as was the case in recent years, but also Germany, Britain, France , Japan , Italy, Georgia , the Baltic countries , Hungary . They argued their position by the fact that Russia allegedly exploits the theme of the fight against neo-Nazism in order to conduct a special military operation in Ukraine.

    The authors of the document strongly condemn incidents related to the glorification and propaganda of Nazism, in particular, the application of pro-Nazi graffiti and drawings, including on monuments to victims of World War II. The resolution urges states to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination by all means, if necessary at the legislative level.

    In addition, the document strongly condemns the use of educational materials, rhetoric in the course of training that promotes racism, discrimination, hatred and violence based on ethnic origin, nationality, religion or belief.

    Aren't swastikas banned in Germany?

    This vote should allow people to celebrate that vote with parades with swastikas in all those countries... they voted that it was the right of people to celebrate such things... let them enjoy the people they support now....
