  1. And that’s your pick of the week? Too handshakable – and again you are with promoting this pathetic article, using the word “regime”.

    Here, what I’d paid attention instead:

    – School #57 scandal
    – Kavkaz-2016 maneuvres Armika-2016 expo in Alabino
    – Byelarussians unfulring Russian flag during the openenning ceremony of the para-Olympcis.
    – BBC whining to their owner, that big mean RT is more successful – and asking more money for propaganda (https://russian.rt.com/article/319974-bbc-pozhalovalas-britanskomu-parlamentu-na-reitingi-rt)
    – G20. Or you think that mentioning it is – haram?

  2. Oh, and considering a pic-of-the-week you posted here – is it a hint that Russia is suffering “10 punishments of Egypt”? Logically, the Exodus (of the best and brightest, and most suffering) kreakls, durnalists, gays and democratic journalists, plus all the people with bright eyes and correct ethnicity will be next.

    And while I can understand why Russia is punished – because of Crimea, Putin, Ukraine, Georgia, Putin, Syria, repressions and Putin – but why the US of A are also targeted by the Heavenly Wrath?
