    To make it clearer what the opposition in Russia is. When Navalny was still trying on the president's chair, an increase in the retirement age sounded in his election program. Because the remnants of the socialist past are pulling the Russian economy into the abyss and it is necessary to move to the Western standards of social security.

    Years passed, the government forced to increase the retirement age. In our country now there are only 72 million workers for 43 million pensioners - and this ratio is getting worse all the time. With the increase in life expectancy of pensioners is becoming more and more. And because of the reduction in the birth rate of working people becomes less. And what is Navalny doing now? Organizes country rallies against increasing the retirement age. Although a few years ago he himself called for the same.

    And finally, the funny thing is that the most active protesters against pension reform are not adults who are approaching retirement age. But young people and children who follow the opposition :)

    Here, the main protesters in Russia today :) (although, of course, there are older people - but noticeably less).

    I am afraid that there is no free press anywhere in the world :) Simply, the methods of influence are different. Political, economic, power, corruption…

    Oligarchs rule everywhere. Including in the USA :) Yes, in Russia, people are well aware that the power in the country is in the hands of oligarchs. But the country made the choice of the capitalist system back in 1991. And, it should be noted, after overcoming the abyss of the 1990s, the standard of living in the country began to grow steadily. While life is getting better and while the memory of the horror of the 1990s is fresh, the people of Russia do not care how the top of the country is enriched. The main thing is that ordinary people also get a normal and improved life :)

    And Navalny is no different from the oligarchs, except that he was a loser in the business. Therefore, he became in opposition. Successful business in Russia is interested in the development of the country and therefore is not in opposition, but supports the government.

    Nemtsov long ago didn’t weigh anything in Russia as a political figure, and his fate is not interesting to anyone from the Russians, except the opposition. This, by the way, is one of the main real arguments against the fact that the Kremlin is guilty of the death of Nemtsov. The name of Nemtsov was almost forgotten and they started talking about him a lot only after the murder. So his murder was only beneficial for the Russian opposition :) But, most likely, there really were simple criminal fights.

    To avoid the impression that everything is fine in Russia :D On the issue of freedom of speech on the Internet. This is really crap that scares me and angry. This summer, for the first time, I was engaged in cleaning my blog, deleting pictures for which I could be convicted of extremism and incitement to hatred. The problem, in fact, is to some degree universal too. In the US, this is even easier if you write something bad and unformatted about gender inequality or attitudes towards migrants, then you can get a public obstruction or problems at work, but not a trial. In Europe, a little worse, there may be condemned (here is a recent example). But in Russia, this was not practiced until this year. And this year, as if become furious. Began to punish political memes inciting hostility against social groups. Maybe it sounds not so bad, but in practice it resulted in a series of accusations for completely harmless, in my opinion, memes. The concept of "insults" is very subjective. And some kind of odious believer can be offended by a completely innocent joke (for example, about the resurrected John Snow from Game of Thrones). But only joy is for law enforcement officers - a lot of easily disclosed cases, you can show how active and useful they are. So I had to review my entries in Russian social networks over the past few years and remove everything that could offend someone’s feelings. And then I wrote directly in the blogs that from that moment on for me personally, freedom of speech in Russia was over. Someone could have had it before, someone writes freely now, but for me it is.

    And I transferred all non-tolerant policies to anonymous distributed social networks (first of all - to ZeroNet).

    On Facebook, I’ll probably just delete all my blogs. I do not like his trends, I do not know what to expect tomorrow from him with the same intolerant materials :)

    Here is an example of one of the memes that figured in one of the charges. In Russia there is an old saying: "Russia has two misfortunes - fools and roads." Here someone posted this picture with the same signature. And ready - the accusation of inciting hatred against the Orthodox.

    Musical pause :)

    An example of modern Russian popular musical culture. The song of the group "Leningrad": "ЗОЖ" ("ZOZh" = HLS = healthy lifestyle). The band plays household alcoholic punk rock, but it has very interesting clips :) In this song, it’s said that if you don’t have brains in your head, but shit, then no healthy lifestyle will save you. "Neither dumbbells, nor alcohol, Will not add your mind."

    I was introduced to this Russian band here on this message board. Admittedly it is not "popular" music, but I like it. :4_13_65:

    LoL - I do enjoy your madness flac. There were around a quarter million views of the fake news like Pizzagate on Twit and Facebook alone. They were strategically directed in particular at the 3 states Donald won by 77k votes to take the EC (gee, wonder how the Russians got so politically savvy? ;-)

    THEN, there was the drippage of hacked emails dripped (also strategically) through the Swedish Rapist Dude holed up like a rat in Ecuador. Heck, the very night Trump cut loose with his "Russia if you can hear me" request, Hillary's server was hit albeit unsuccessfully.

    And yet you can't admit that there was an influence - (Comey announcements aside) ???

    I'll bet like me, you can't hardly wait to see the Mueller findings and what the hell it is that Putin has on Trump -- Amiright? :)

    We in Russia are simply amazed how weak and weak-willed the US is. America can shake just a quarter of a million views on social networks. Yes, you need to build an iron information curtain to escape! :)

    In Russia, tens of millions of people are daily exposed to Western propaganda. And nothing, somehow we are not in a hurry to collapse :D

    It's good. But if the Kremlin helped elect such a new enemy of Russia, then we have a very stupid government. But, if the Russian government is so stupid, how can it greatly influence the US? Are the Americans even more stupid?

    My error there Balancer - My brain stopped working momentarily. It was around a quarter BILLION views- not million. 150 million that Facebook identified alone.

    Your government stupid? Nope, anything but. Putin hated Hillary. I think he has dirt on Trump. He also knew that Donald was susceptible to flattery, had a penchant for strong-arm leaders, would be softer on Russia and could in the end -- be manipulated. Putin is playing three dimensional chess whilst Donald tries his hand at Hungry Hippo.

    I somehow doubt that information flows quite so freely in and out of your country. Journalists and political opponents are jailed and killed - Curious .. would you dispute that? RT is, per the understanding of experts, a direct propaganda arm for Putin. Here in the US, they were recently forced to register as a foreign agent.

    Russia's RT America registers as 'foreign agent' in U.S. | Reuters

    Keep going with the informative posts and photos please. Awesome stuff!
