    Voice of Russia

    Small offtopic. I am writing (in Russian :) ) an article about a cargo cult in a movies. And I was faced with the fact that I can not find a reverse translation from Russian into English of the term submariners "devil's bells". Speech about the sound of echolocation, that in English is called...

    Sorry for the delay in answering, I have not visited this forum for a long time. The Kerch shooter was armed with a Hatsan Escort pump-action shotgun. Weapons of this class are sold relatively freely in Russia.

    I got an interesting map. Is it that it turns out that there are so many beggars in the USA? Or am I somehow mistaken in the interpretation of this data? It warms my soul that Russia looks so good here :) Origin: Mapping Extreme Poverty Around the World

    SATELLITE images reveal Moscow is massively reinforcing its strategic Kaliningrad outpost, positioned like a knife at the throat of NATO in the Baltic Sea. "knife at the throat of NATO". Sometimes the arrogance of Western inhabitants is simply amazing. At first they surround Russia from all...

    French hero, who sacrificed himself to save a hostage from an Islamist, won’t have a place named after him as ‘it may offend Muslims’ One of the things that do not accept and do not understand in Russia. The dictatorship of tolerance is not for us. The feat of Arnaud Beltrame was widely...

    Voice of Russia

    Many in the West do not want to understand that now any murder of a journalist or a politician in Russia is a powerful blow to the Kremlin. Therefore, the Kremlin is clearly not interested in such actions. Even assuming the Kremlin’s interest in the assassination, this assassination should be of...

    Voice of Russia

    A little bit about how the opposition is being suppressed in Russia. For example, a certain Arkady Babchenko. The oppositionist, who allegedly fled to Ukraine from persecution. And who not so long ago faked his death, ostensibly to catch the Russian killer. After the tragedy in the Crimea, this...

    Photos of the Crimean shooter with surveillance cameras. Yes, I forgot to mention that he shot himself. His page on the social network Vkontakte is filled with very extremist content, but was abandoned in 2014. And here it is impossible not to criticize the Russian law enforcement officers, who...

    In Crimea today was a terrorist attack a la Columbine. A student brought a hunting rifle and an improvised explosive device to the Polytechnic College. 18 students were killed, several dozens injured. Motives are not yet known. ... And to the question of the Russian opposition. Again...

    I have already written more than once why this is not so. In Russia, the penetration of the Internet is not inferior to the American. And we have the Internet with respect to information is still free. Here, the top chart is Internet penetration, the bottom one is smartphone penetration...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    There is practically no opposition in Russia today. Interestingly, in this there is practically no malicious intent of the authorities. Somehow, no luck in Russia with the opposition :D In my opinion, a normal opposition is one that wishes well for its country, but by other methods than the...

    And here is an example of statistics where Russia does not look the worst in the world :D Although the source of the data is not indicated here, so I don’t know what their authenticity is in other countries.

    I did not know where to put this photo. Whether in your topic with photos, such as photoblog, or in politics, because to some extent shows the Russian reality :D I decided, nevertheless, in politics. Recently in the store in front of me on the counter I saw such a still life. Just a classic :)...

    Next year I plan with my family to relocate from Moscow to Kaliningrad. Therefore, now I have begun to pay more attention to things to which I have got used to for 28 years of life in Moscow and have not paid attention. I began to photograph more often the streets along which I am going home. In...

    U.S. would destroy banned Russian warheads if necessary: NATO envoy Let someone tell her that, unlike the defenseless Yugoslavia, Libya or Iraq, Russia, in response to the destruction of objects on its territory, can destroy the United States. I don’t know how it looks from America, but from...

    I have not written anything on the military subject for a long time. So I'll start right away with the new info. In the Zhukovsky (Moscow suburb), the MiG-31 was seen with, presumably, an anti-satellite missile or its mock-up. Although this is only a plausible version. There are also assumptions...

    Yeah, I'm doing great.

    Every time I come to the Kaliningrad region from Moscow, I am amazed by the texture of the local sky :) In Moscow the sky is less expressive. It is usually either purely monotonic-blue, or covered with dense clouds. In Kaliningrad, the sky often has a very beautiful drawing. Here in this photo...
