Statement by the President of Russia Vladimir Putin in response to Washington’s hostile actions

December 30, 2016 We regard the recent unfriendly steps taken by the outgoing US administration as provocative and aimed at further weakening the Russia-US relationship. This runs contrary to the fundamental interests of both the Russian and American people. Considering the global security responsibilities of Russia and the United States, this is also damaging to international relations as a whole. As it proceeds from international practice, Russia has reasons to respond in kind. Although we have the right to retaliate, we will not resort to irresponsible ‘kitchen’ diplomacy but will plan our further steps to restore

John Kirby latest temper tantrum at RT’s Gayane Chichakyan

Reminder: John Kirby is a “spokesperson” (yup, that is the correct newspeak) for the US State Department, presumably the branch of the Executive in charge of *diplomacy*.  Well, all I can say is that considering the level of US “diplomats” today, I sure hope that Donald Trump will (finally!) appoint some *real*, professional, career diplomats and not yet another bunch of rude, condescending, ignorant and, frankly, stupid amateurs like Kirby.

“Vatnik” – to the Ukrainians. Why would we liberate YOU?

Note: “vatnik” is a derogatory term used in today’s Ukraine to describe people in Donbass and other South-Eastern regions as well as anybody supportive of the ‘Russian World”. The word ‘vatnik” means an overcoat padded with cotton (“vata”) habitually worn by agriculture and construction workers in early and mid Soviet times. It is quite warm but hardly fashionable. The reference is to the supposedly primitive nature of the people that
