    Apropos gaytrash methods of political abuse.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r29k_T_o9To&list=RDMMV5bYDhZBFLA&index=2&pxtry=1

    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.

    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

    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.

    It's more to do with Balkans voting for each other. It was Balkanovision before.

    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.

    Ukraine didn't want to participate this year for economic reasons Rolling Eyes.

    Another fun fact: Ukrainian Anastasia Prikhodko represented Russia in 2009 after being chosen by Russian viewers and jury. Last summer Anastasia Prikhodko and Ukraine 2014 Zlata Ognevich (current Radical Party MP) raised money for 72nd Guards Mechanized Brigade.

    Le Monde: the French are sharply interested in Russian literature

    Le Monde: interest in Russian and Ukrainian authors has grown sharply in France.

    MOSCOW, May 10 - RIA Novosti. Demand for works by Russian and Ukrainian writers has jumped in French bookstores, writes Le Monde.

    “In recent weeks, all of Dostoevsky’s writings have moved from the shelves to the windows of French bookstores. The same thing happened with the works of Tolstoy, Gogol, Bulgakov, Grossman, Pushkin, as well as contemporary Russian and Ukrainian writers,” the publication says.
    As noted in the publication, booksellers talk about the keen interest of customers in this region in the context of the situation in Ukraine.

    "Readers are asking for books that will help them understand (the origins of the crisis in Ukraine . - Approx. ed.)," said Natalia Tyurina , owner of the Globe bookstore.

    So i heard that many entertainment outlets are pulling out of Russia, no more netflix etc, as well as Russian movie theatre no longer able to license western movies.

    So, no Top Gun etc in Russian theatre. Well people can pirate those but i also heard that the "movie boycott" also causing Russian movie theatre to close down which kinda suck for people working there, and apparently no local movies to plug the gap.

    However i wonder if there would be more Chinese or other country's movie got into Russian theatre.

    Russian theatres simply play foreign moves without paying the licenses

    Plus they have their own streaming services which probably also don't need to bother with licensing fees and can just air content

    Locals could chime in on this
