That was the Munich Agreement of

Traveler’s toothache – Russian dentist

by the Geneva Observer My tooth ache was too much. Natasha made the call. My fear of the dentist is something like the elephant and the mouse. I may not be an elephant, but my dentist would be considerably smaller than me, a woman dentist, wearing studded earrings, and perfectly glossed nails. The dental clinic was one of the most modern in Yaroslavl. They accepted the challenge of dealing with

First-hand experience with Russian Emergency Service

by the Geneva Observer Part I Part II Being invited for the first time to your mother-in-law can be a traumatic experience for some. It is especially so when neither speaks the other’s mother tongue.

Trip to Moscow, by the Geneva Observer

Hello Scott,   We have safely arrived from Geneva, both very tired (both of us had to get up at 5am). I am quickly having to learn the Cyrillic alphabet and a few words I can start recognizing (already knowing German, French and English is a big help -Russian, despite the different alphabet is a very much European language). We found a bank to change money. Very well organized, very

Comments of the Russian MID on the EU authority on human rights

The EU has long lost its moral right to act as an authority on human rights issues The following statement is an important step taken by the MID. Until recently, they refrained from directly pointing out that the European nations that are orchestrating the anti-Russian campaign are the same nations that participated in the  war on the USSR in 1941-1945. Some of them sent their armies to invade Russia and

Between Erdogan and Eurovision-2017

Peskov: “Russia’s choice of a performer for the Eurovision 2017 contest is not a provocation.” I told to a liberal what I think about Israel in those exact words that he used about Russia, he got very upset and called me a fascist. —— Erdogan is our guy!

Scott’s rant about things

Russian Orthodox Church gathers all faithful The Holy Synod just added to the ecclesiastical calendar more than a dozen saints who lived in Europe including saint Patriky, the Apostle of Ireland, better known as Saint Patrick.

What if I told you that a vacuum cleaner is not dangerous? by Scott

The Old Rome and the Third Rome came together and they are winning. Cat Motja   The Battle for liberation of Germany. Part I.

American spies, Primakov’s death, and Russian Pharma, by Scott

This is my corner so I can rant on and on about what bothers me the most today. Take, for example, the recent revelation made by Russia’s Foreign Ministry that the US intelligence community was instrumental in the death of Evgeny Primakov, who was allegedly on dialyses for liver failure at the time. US intel may have contributed to Russian ex-Foreign Minister Primakov’s death – Zakharova Primakov has been hated by
