The upcoming Russian parliamentary elections
President Putin made an appeal to the citizens of Russia to come out and vote. Considering that he is our commander-in-chief, his words are the command for all.
In terms of getting familiar with the political parties in Russia, I recommend this basic outline of the major political parties in the following article in RI translation:
Duma Elections 2016: Putin Majority Will Win, Liberals Won’t Make It: Break Down Party by Party
Russian society is getting prepared for the elections in ways that have become routine for a country fighting “warm” war with multiple unified enemies.
Last week, FSB arrested a Police Colonel, after searching his car and finding ten million dollars inside. Then they searched his sister’s apartment and discovered about $140 million in cash. Then his father’s work in banking revealed that he had about $300 million on the accounts in his name in German and other European banks. The Colonel was also a head of the federal anti-corruption unit.
There are several working version where the money came from. Considering that the almost half a ton of dollars was still wrapped in US Mint plastic with US Mint barcodes on the packaging, it’s not very plausible that it was a result of bribes accumulated over the years.
Most likely, the Federal Police colonel was a cashier for the US Embassy’s funds distribution with the intent to pay to the anti-Russian opposition, and the potential perpetrators of Maidan-style civil disobedience after the elections. Because all those fervent fighters for “Western democracy” want to be paid and won’t fight for free. Unlike, say, the Saker’s editorial team.
Here, you can see an official image of the money allegedly directed to finance the “uprising against the Russian government.” In a way, it’s a modern version of a sealed wagon with Lenin and other anti-Russian “revolutionaries” travelling from Europe and the US to start a bloody revolution.
Interestingly enough, some of the anti-Russian liberals immediately announced that they won’t be able to continue “fighting” in the upcoming elections because their donors suddenly said that they won’t be able to “donate” any funds for fighting with “Putin’s regime.” This “coincidence” hasn’t gone unnoticed, and invariably caused a wave of happy and incredibly funny comments in the Russian blogosphere.
On Thursday, a group of a couple hundred men tried to cross Russia’s border with Ukraine into Russia. They claimed Moscow as their destination and reported that they were coming with the intent to work. Which is perfectly fine and legal. Up to 6 million Ukrainians work all over Russia in construction, oil and gas industries, road and bridge construction. This particular group of men couldn’t specify where they were going to work and didn’t have enough money to live even a day in one of the most expensive cities in the world. The Russian custom officers recommended them to go back and find work at home.
Considering that these two hundred men were trying to get to Moscow in time for the election, it’s not too farfetched to assume that they could be going there to take a part in a “Maidan” that the US and European organizers have been planning with such insistency.
What’s interesting that the customs service acted in accordance to a 1996 law, which is well known. It’s application has never caused any Ukrainian and liberal Russian media’ outcry before.
According to some “insider” information, in a battalion of potential gastarbeiters there were at least two dozen military servicemen known to fight in the so-called “ATO” in Donbass. And they were coming from a town called Summu, which has been known for overwhelmingly voting for fascist Nazi parties of “Svoboda” (Freedom) and the Right Sector.
For the brainwashed Western viewers nothing would spell an “anti-Putin uprising” in Moscow better than several hundred war-criminals from Ukraine burning tires and shooting at the police and innocent Muscovites.
Opinions on the Russian blogosphere are unanimous. Everything has to be done to prevent a potential terrorists and provocateurs from getting to the territory of the country.
People, however blame the EU and Yatsenuk, a bit. Yatsenuk for escaping to the US with billions stolen from the state budget that would be used to build a tall wall between two countries, and the EU for not giving the visa free regime to the country of glorious democratic maidans.
In any case, it looks like a job well done by Russian border control.
To get a sneak preview of what the Ukrainian terrorists would be doing in Moscow, here is a video of them attacking the Embassy of Russia in Kiev.
Immediately following an attack on the Russian embassy, someone or something blew up a Ukrainian foreign legion command center on the NATO occupied territory of Donbass near Donetsk. Most likely the one that coordinates daily shelling of the civilians living in Donetsk people’s Republic.
It was Cat Motya who gave the best answer to the question of how to maintain peace and tranquility of the post-election society.
“Blessed are lounging on couches, because theirs is a peaceful and prosperous country.”
He also advises everyone go and vote for the pro-Putin candidates, and after casting their ballots to come back home to have some coffee, kielbasa and sausages, and cakes and nuts drizzled with chocolate. After that he recommend to sit on a couch and watch TV for election updates. This way people won’t get in the way of the Police, OMON, National Guards, and occasional anti-terror unit chasing the bad guys around the Kremlin, or the city halls in some other Russian cities.
He wrote also to stay home and not to respond to anyone’s calls to go on the streets. The only call we as the citizens have to respond to is the call of our President to go and fight the war against the enemies of Russia. This call would come in the mail as a military summons. Then and only then we will get of the couches, and we will leave our houses, and we will go out to stomp the enemies of Russia. Until then, we will stay comfortably on our couches to guarantee the country’s stability.
“Let the Police handle it.” This was said by Dr. King, but it fits the occasion.
Meanwhile in the EU and US
“I have never seen anything worse than Switzerland in my life”
A terrifying and humorous account of the Russian liberals’ adventures in Europe that is summoned by the phrase “We are in hell.”
Turns out that Russians criticizing WADA commit a crime
This week world woke up to the news that American Olympic athletes are terminally ill people.
There is no illness that would demand a woman to take male hormones.
WADA got punished by Fancy Bears
Americans have built a system designed to hand all the prices in sports, finance, economy, politics to them. Meanwhile, Russia and China are building an international system designed to benefit all its participants.

Time in travel is 30 days shorter than by sea.
When Ukrainian ideological leaders with Galician roots say that all throughout centuries while being a part of Russia Ukrainians did nothing but work to destroy Russia, it sounds like they want to steal the thunder from the Jews, who claim the same thing. But when you see this kind of videos, you start believing that they might be saying the truth.
While Russians build superb weapons, beautiful cities, the great empire, Ukrainians “modernize” them.
A video demonstrates a good old Kalashnikov machine gun PMK, “modernized” by someone in the Ukraine’s defense sector.
Compare the above miracle of the Ukro-land engineering with the real Russia build Kalashnikov
Other Russian military news
The ministry of Defense revealed the progress in organizing a new Army in the Western Russian regions
Russian MARS (MAPC) is a soundless robotic infantry vehicle which is able to function independently, to design its own path while delivering ammunition, and other supplies and relocating injured to safety. It also has a “follow me” capability and will follow at the distance a person with a transponder.
The Russian Mars is a significant improvement against the Western unmanned robotic platform Raider II, R-Gator A3, SMSS, CAMEL because Mars is equipped with the unique rubber caterpillars instead of wheels that allows them to drive anywhere, while the Western robotic platform can only be used on paved roads. Hehehe… [source] [source]
Launch of Topol from Plesetsk
On September 9, 2016 the Strategic Rocket Forces conducted a successful launch of a Topol/SS-25 ICBM from the Plesetsk test site. According to the Ministry of Defense statement (on Facebook!), the warhead reached its designated target at the Kamchatka Peninsula. The launch was part of a Strategic Rocket Forces exercise.
One of the objectives of the test, along with “confirmation of the technical characteristics of the missile,” was a test of prospective combat payload and missile defense penetration aids.” This is somewhat unusual, for normally tests of this kind are conducted along the Kapustin Yar-Sary Shagan corridor (the most recent one took place in December 2015).
The distance from Plesetsk to Kamchatka is about 6000 kilometers, from Plesetsk to Tel-Aviv – 4520 kilometers.

Beautiful video illustrating the power of the Russian military forces
In addition, the Russian military forces have entered the information war, as reported by Zvezda (Star) a Russian military news channel. A brand new anti information warfare group has been created during the recent drills Kavkaz-2016.
It is known that the “Kavkaz-2016” was a practice of preparation and application of armed forces of the South-West region in the context of protection of the territorial integrity of Russia. According to the planed maneuvers worked on securing the state border, on isolating the areas of operation of illegal armed formations, and also on the resolution of the internal armed conflict.
Speaking about the actions of the anti information warfare group, Valery Gerasimov praised its performance, noting that the new department includes experts from the GRU, an information warfare centers, from the military districts, as well as the military radio-electronic warfare specialists and service of protection of state secrets or the Federal Protective Service (FSO).
The Chief of the General staff of the armed forces Valery Gerasimov, speaking some time ago at one of the meetings of the Academy of military Sciences said: “In the XXI century there is a tendency to erase a divide between war and peace. Wars are not declared, and when they start, they develop without a pattern. Any prosperous country in a few months and even days can turn into an arena of fierce armed struggle, to plunge into chaos, humanitarian catastrophe and civil war”.
This speech of General Gerasimov later became the basis of his article “The value of science in prediction”, where he stressed that “the emphasis of warfare methods is shifting towards the broad use of political, economic, informational, humanitarian and other non-military measures implemented with the aim to ignite the protest of the targeted population. All these is being complemented by military measures in disguise, including the implementation of measures of information warfare and the actions of special operations forces”.
Other news in brief
The EU has announced its intent to organize its own armed forces. As expected, the US has started to use the occupied parts of the USSR like the Baltics, Ukraine, Moldova, to fight the European plans for “common military force.”
American occupational forces are feeling heat not just in Europe.
‘Crusaders! Infidels! Dogs! Get out!’ American-backed rebels force US commandos to leave Syrian town
It looks like after the peace deal with Russia, the US tries to remove their support of the terror groups fighting with he Syrian government. That’s why they staged this verbal assault on the US military specialists.
Meanwhile the US spy planes P-8A Poseidon twice, on Friday and on Saturday harassed the Russian airbase in Syria. Acting in direct violation of the legitimate US government’s agreement of cooperation in Syria with Russia, some Pentagon officials demonstrate daily how deeply divided and uncontrollable to its own government the US military has become.
The world is really facing a creeping military revolt against the legitimate US government. I don’t understand why nobody talks about this. I can’t think about any other modern military forces in the world that would show such an open defiance to its own commander-in-chief orders.
US & US-controlled forces haven’t fulfilled any Syria ceasefire deal obligations – Russian Army
Should we start treating the US military forces around the world as being uncontrollable by the US Federal Government?
If this is the case, should the Eastern democracies start treating the US military around the world as an illegal armed formations?
Of course, it’s habitual for the US to attack anyone who has an agreement with them, and I am not talking about the US plans to nuclear bomb its ally the USSR at the end of the WWII.
The Prime Minister of Turkey just made a statement that they know about the plans to destroy Turkey following the scenario that was used to destroy Syria and Iraq. “They try to realize the same plans they used to destroy Iraq and Syria,” he said. “the entire 79 million population of Turkey is well aware of these plans.” He has not specified who exactly wants to destroy Turkey.
I will keep updating this post today and tomorrow.
Thank you for your time,
“They try to realize the same plans they used to destroy Iraq and Syria,” he said. “the entire 79 million population of Turkey is well aware of these plans.” He has not specified who exactly wants to destroy Turkey.”
They wouldn’t be the same hominid things Turkey recently made nice with and who are often seen in those pindo yuppy shopping malls hawking mud from the Dead Sea, would they be?
Thanks Scott,for a good article.
As usual, very good SITREP! The video segment about an anti-terror operation in Mahachkala is very interesting.
I was itching to ask a question, that I believe, so far, wasn’t’ asked here. Can somebody shed some lights in regards to the geo-weaponry, specifically Chemtrails in Russia? It is a well-known fact (not a conspiracy fact) that from 1953 to 1964, the military released huge quantities of particles of zinc, cadmium, sulfide and microorganisms in 33 locations, mostly cities and towns, in the United States and Canada, but also over the United Kingdom and Scandinavia. (Source: U.S. National Academy of Sciences 1977). Then, starting from 1974 up until now, it is mostly various nanoparticles that have certain negative interactions with human genetics, brain and cellular structure. Is Russian military capable of defending itself from these poisonous clouds? Is Russian government doing something to shield Russia from this kind of weaponry?
Russian Foreign Ministry: White House ‘Defending the Islamic State’ Terrorists
Russia Wants Emergency UN Security Council Session on US Bombing of Syrian Army
‘US is defending ISIS’: Russia convenes UNSC meeting after US coalition strike on Syrian army
Why oh why does Russia keep persisting in trying to make agreements with the USG, when it’s always just a matter of how long it will take for the USG to renege??? The USG has been doing this for decades.
Their default position must always be to distrust the USG.
From the RT article:
““If previously we had suspicions that Al-Nusra Front is protected this way, now, after today’s airstrikes on the Syrian army we come to a really terrifying conclusion for the entire world: The White House is defending IS [Islamic State, formerly ISIS/ISIL],” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told Rossiya 24.
“We demand a full and detailed explanation from Washington. That explanation must be given at the UN Security Council,” Zakharova added.”
The USA is now openly supporting daesh relying on the zionazi Jewish owned/run media to keep piling on the big lies.
OK, again, why would Russia believe that the USG would (bother to) give an explanation, or rather, an honest one?
The USG, by its actions, again shows it to be treacherous, lying, arrogant and murderous.
Seems Australia was in on the attack against the Syrian army.
Guess Turnbull answered Putins question who do we fight for Syria.
Yep American funded head choppers ISIS.
Damascus Urges UNSC to Discuss US Coalition Strikes on Syrian Army
Russia Deeply Concerned With US-Led Coalition Strike on Syrian Forces
“The United States had not warned Russia about plans to carry out an operation in the area, she added, noting that Washington may therefore be avoiding its commitments to separating militants from moderate opposition.”
The pindos are carrying out their commitments to their colonial masters in tel aviv instead.
This is official:
US is defending ISIS’: Russia convenes UNSC meeting after US coalition strike on Syrian army
I always get new ways to see an issue from you, Scott. This time it’s the concept that the US government can’t get its military to obey orders. Very interesting. Sooner or later, US proxies are going to get killed. The US will be very lucky if its own forces escape death also. How much warning can Russia give before the rest of the Syrian allies decide to fight the US directly? And how long can Russia restrain them?
Now this US bombing and killing of more than 80 SAA troops at Deir Ezzor will come to the UN – hopefully. It looks like a total cowboy move by the US. Could it be that the Pentagon, with already more than $6 Trillion unaccounted for, is the real ruler of the US?
One report from a source I don’t know says that:
US used an ECM \ jamming jet to cover it’s attack on Dir Al Zor airport ,making sure Syrian radars wont see them coming SyrianMilitaryCap. @syrianmilitary
Thanks Scott for your report.
Any more info on this?: ‘someone or something blew up a Ukrainian foreign legion command center on the NATO occupied territory of Donbass near Donetsk.’ – I’m somewhat surprised that this hasn’t happened more often, especially when the murdering terrorists were firing on Gorlovka from Dzerzhinsk (appears to have largely ceased from there, as far as I can tell).
In the meantime, how about some music from Green Grozny?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=f-578a4R684 Start at 37 mins or 1:03:00 onwards.
The neocon aggressors know how to time their attacks. They stepped up their overthrow of Ukraine during the Sochi olympics ( remember Victoria Nudelman Kagan´s smirking face? ). Now they time their aggression in Syria to coincide with the Duma elections.
The neocons are in a big hurry right now. If Hillary loses the “election” they will no longer be completely in control of USA foreign policy.
FB from E A
A sweet post thank you, and so sorry the no pay….but i did buy the on-line book(so cheap too:)
Just a thought about today’s attack on the SAA by the USAF – i wonder if it’s another idiot execution of a command from on high by that US General who recently plonked his tent down in East Syria and opened his mouth….and seriously (if not sad enough already) aren’t attacks on Daesh & supporters allowed during this “cease fire” so therefore this makes attacks on US forces legal?….not to even speak of Israel incursions in the south.
but i did buy the on-line book(so cheap too:)
LOL! Thanks, sadness, it helped a bit.
Sorry about the price, though…
Timing & other aspects of US strike on Syrian army suggest intentional provocation – Churkin
” The US’ sudden attempt to “help” the Syrian army fighting ISIS in the eastern city of Deir ez-Zor, which resulted in a strike that killed and injured dozens of soldiers, does not look like an honest mistake, Russia’s UN envoy told journalists at the UNSC meeting.
“It is highly suspicious that the United States chose to conduct this particular air strike at this time,” Russia’s ambassador Vitaly Churkin said.
Churkin questioned why the US suddenly chose to “help” the Syrian army defend Deir ez-Zor after all these years, recalling how American forces just observed terrorists’ movements and did “nothing when ISIS advanced on Palmyra.”
“It was quite significant and not accidental that it happened just two days before the Russian-American arrangements were supposed to come into full force,” Churkin added.
DETAILS TO FOLLOW”
The usual subhuman response from the pindo neanderthal mutant at the UN:
US Ambassador to UN: Emergency Meeting a ‘Stunt,’ Blasts Russia and Assad ‘Game’
“The United States Ambassador to the United Nations took a truculent tone during the emergency meeting on Saturday accusing Russia of bombing civilians and blaming the Assad regime for the rise of ISIS calling the meeting “grandstanding,” a “stunt,” and a “game” after 80 Syrian Army forces were killed in a US-Led airstrike.”
I look forward to the day zionazi war criminals such as the missing link power stretch a rope.
I look forward to hearing news that Assad has phoned China and asking send some troops quick to throw out usa from the region which surely they might be interested , just like China seas…….I am not sure Syria is going to permit Russia to continue any arrangements between Russia and usa.
Russian FM Spokeswoman Strikes Back at US Envoy to UN Over Comment on Syria
“On her Facebook page, Zakharova wrote that, instead of rubbing shoulders with al-Nusra Front terrorists and the so-called “moderate opposition” in Syria, Power should go there to meet ordinary Syrians who are still alive “despite the almost six-year-old bloody experiment being staged on them with Washington’s active participation.”
Zakharova added that she has been regularly communicating with members of the Syrian opposition, with orphans, who come to rest and receive medical treatment in Russia, and with journalists. She invited Power to travel to Syria and even promised to pay for the trip.
“Have no fear. With me by your side, nobody will harm you. You will have things to remember and, besides, you will have a chance to learn what ‘shame’ means,” she wrote.”
Doubtful the subhuman pos power is mentally capable of something as sophisticated as shame, seeing the creature is a neanderthal. It is limited to basic drives such as selfish greed, hunger & anger.
Time for Russia to realise that Powers is truly representative of the usa, this is truly their policy to Russia and Syria…..release 5 docs and shame them to the depths of eternal hell for their depravity.
Powers is definitely not Neanderthal. These guys (and gals) had easily 400 grams more brain mass than homo sapiens. This woman, definitely not ‘sapiens’ either, is barely homo erectus and should be completely erected horizontally straight into a coffin. Dragunov, anyone?
““It was quite significant and not accidental that it happened just two days before the Russian-American arrangements were supposed to come into full force,” Churkin added.”
Now, it’s everything clear, they want to postpone the arrangements or nullify it.
Multiple injuries in improvised explosive device blast in Manhattan
There was another IED at a run earlier in the day. Coincidence these “terrorist attacks” just happen at the same time israel has their pindo quislings stage a major provocation in Syria? Looks to me they connected as part of the same psywar strategy. The pindo sods already blamed Syria and Russia for the creation of daesh at the UN, no doubt the sods will also blame Syria and Russia for the IED bombings in pindoland, as well. And probably also invent some absurd trump connection.
Oh dear…..sky news tuning with meme this am that opposition parties are being intimidated by united Russia in the elections…….jolly good, these elections are being monitored I believe……..
Cat Motja, the astonishing Russian military and political analyst and besides clairvoyant, following the order of the “Commander in Chief”, exerts its duty to vote:
An aircraft of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) Air Force
Syrian Air Force Jet Downed in Deir Ez-Zor, Pilot Dead – Reports
“A Syrian Air Force plane was shot down in the eastern city of Deir Ez-Zor, SANA news agency reported. The pilot of the aircraft is dead.
The warplane was downed while on a combat mission against Daesh positions, a military source told Syria’s state news agency SANA.
There was no immediate information about the possible attackers.”
If Daesh uses anti-aircraft weapons against Syrian pilots why isn’t Syria using its anti-aircraft weapons to a larger extent itself?
Great summary as usual. I can continue to rest peacefully on my couch.
“Interestingly enough, some of the anti-Russian liberals immediately announced that they won’t be able to continue “fighting” in the upcoming elections because their donors suddenly said that they won’t be able to “donate” any funds for fighting with “Putin’s regime.”
Ah, yes, those minty fresh $100 bills again, straight off the magic printing press! My oh my, where could they have come from? Surely from a transporter zapped Wells Fargo ATM from up the alley! Kind of reminds one of those $100 bills always showing up in the Ukraine. Would love to read some of those blog comments and hear which of the mighty liberal warriors were unable to get to first base without their printing donor! These men are so patriotic they refuse roubles, insist on imperial currency! Speaking of donations, thanks for bringing it up, you guys deserve our support for fanning embers of hope.
MOSCOW, September 19. /TASS/. The leader of Russia’s Parnas party, Mikhail Kasyanov, has no intention of stepping down following the party’s unsuccessful performance in the State Duma elections.
“I have no intention of resigning. It would be irresponsible to quit a newly-launched ship that is afloat and seen as hope for future changes,” Kasyanov told the media.
He claimed that the returns from the State Duma’s elections were “inauthentic” due to alleged violations on the voting day.
Kremlin: United Russia victory de facto reflects voters’ support for president Putin
United Russia to get 76.22% of seats in the new State Duma — CEC
Russian Duma election results may be canceled in three ballot stations
According to the latest election returns the Central Election Commission disclosed on Monday, United Russia will have a total of 343 mandates in the State Duma (76.22% of the seats). In other words, it will enjoy a guaranteed constitutional majority (of no less than 300 mandates). The Communist party may have 42 mandates (9.34%), the LDPR – 39 mandates (8.67%), and A Just Russia, 23 mandates (5.11%). The Communists of Russia placed fifth with 2.31%, followed by Yabloko with 1.94%, the Russian Party of Pensioners for Justice with 1.75%, Rodina with 1.48%, the Party of Growth with 1.25%, the Greens with 0.75%, Parnas with 0.72%, the Patriots of Russia with 0.59%, the Civic Platform, with 0.22% and the Civic Force with 0.14%.
Rodina and the Civic Platform, which failed to get their candidates into the State Duma, will have one mandate each. One seat goes to self-nominated candidate Vladislav Reznik.
According to early statistics, the voter turnout was at 47.75%. The State Duma elections were held on September 18 under a mixed pattern: 225 legislators were elected on party tickets, and 225 in single-member constituencies.
You can always tell a CIA, false-flag, terrorist entrapment operation by its mickeymouseness.
A garbage dumpster on 23rd street. Wow. The exact opposite of bringing down the Twin Towers.
But it was immediately inducted into the Pantheon of Silly Terrorist Acts along with shoe bombs and underwear bombs (I always shrivel up when I think of that one.)
But 23rd Street did its job. It knocked the coalition’s deliberate attack on the Syrian army right off the front page and internet news.
