A warning from Scott: Prior to writing for thesaker, I collected antiques and art. Since I started writing, I gave up my family, my job, my business, sleeping, showering, and other bad habits. Hell, I even stopped shaving my beard. Being a compulsive collector, now I only collect Russian jokes and anecdotes. First, they are free. Second, they are more effective than booze and drugs combined.

You have been warned.

1. A Short History of the Dutch MH17 report
Here the Dutch have released a report on Boeing. Only a year and a half had passed, and here they were already with the report. They even built a mock-up of the Boeing, life-size, which, apparently, took up the bulk of their time.
Initially, the Ukrainian half of the Dutch investigation team insisted on just planting in the dummy Boeing the following items: a Russian hand grenade f1, a helmet with emblem of the DPR (Donetsk People’s Republic), a balalaika and a portrait of Putin, after which the entire press conference could sing together “It’s not dead yet..” (the national anthem of Ukraine) and go back home. But experts said “no” to this. Even the Swedes wouldn’t believe it.
To get the Swedes involved anyway, somebody thought out a plan to announce that the plane was shot down by a ballistic missile R-29RMU / RSM-54 Sineva “Blue” launched by a Russian nuclear submarine in the territorial waters of Sweden. But the experts opened up Google, found a photo of the device, assessed its size and performance characteristics, whistled, crossed themselves twice, and said, “No f..k. This dream just might come true!”
At this moment, thankfully, the phone rang and people from “Almaz-Antey” said that since the Dutch experts for mysterious reasons were unable to come to Russia for over a year, “Almaz-Antey” was ready to demonstrate the work of the warhead missiles 9М38 directly during the presentation of the report,. People from “Almaz-Antey” just called to make sure that the presentation of the report will be held at: Amsterdam, 52.3733482 North latitude and 4.8988619 East longitude. They also recommended to have a supply of helmets, body armor and to wait for the Russians in good spirit!
Despite of their natural Nordic velocity, the Dutch immediately realized that they couldn’t put it off any longer and issued a report, from which it became clear that someone, somewhere, maybe, had launched a rocket, allegedly made maybe in Russia, and that the Ukraine definitely should not allow flights in that area!
The European law firms immediately reached for the references on the subject of Ukraine’s liability, and other money making torts to bring the lawsuits onto Ukraine.
The President of Ukraine, having been surprised by the Papist and Jesuit resourcefulness of these tulip breeders, immediately got into a fighter jet su-27, to project on them the power of the Ukraine’s Luftwaffe. But the jet couldn’t take off due to the lack of fuel that have already been sold by dodgy Benya Kolomoysky to himself through a complex chain of intermediaries.
I will not surrender without a fight,” said Poroshenko, and he fought with a bottle of Crimean Portwine till the last drop.

2. The Islamic state has presented to the military attaché of Russia a Note of Protest with the demands to stop aggression against the young sovereign state.

4. Former Ukraine’s Minister of Justice and an active head of the death squad “Azov” Roman Zvarych got in an accident on the highway Kyiv–Chop. As it was reported by the TV channel “112 Ukraine”: “His car collided with a truck.”
But, according to the press service of “Azov,” the accident happened because several cars and trees tried to run Zvarich’s vehicle off the road. Those several cars fled the scene after the collision. Zvarich’s car caught fire, and a truck got flipped over. He walked away from this fiery crash unscathed. Because of the guardian angel of drunken Nazis.

5. The German MSM report an alarming increase in the number of attacks on refugees. Two third of the attacks were conducted by people without any previous criminal records. For God’s sake! Give the people of Germany some more criminal records, so they would be better equipped in handling this refugee crises.

6. The Defense Ministers of Russia and Israel plan to hold the joint training of the Russian Federation and the Israeli air forces.
The training program includes:
1. Emergency landing of Israeli aircrafts on bases and airfields in an event they see the aircrafts of the Russian federation on the horizon.
2. Immediate ejection of the pilots of the Israeli F-15 in the event of failure of the system identification “friend or foe” when flying within range of the S-300F Fort sea basing.
3. A short course of the Russian language by memorizing phrases: “Don’t shoot! We are not terrorists. We are the pilots of the Israeli air force!” and “What are you guys doing? My woman is from Saratov!,” in case of successful ejection in the area of deployment of Russian military bases.
The United States military resolutely refused from concerting with this program stating: “Not to worry. American women will give birth to many more American pilots!
Glory to America!

6. Meanwhile, Ramzan Kadyrow and a freed sailor from the oil tanker “Mechanic Chebotarev” were taking a stroll through the beautiful hotel “Grozny-City.” After Ramzan Achmatowicz thanked his very important guests, Libyan prime Minister and a minister of Defense of Libya, for their assistance in liberating the crew of the Russian ship kidnapped arrested by the Libyan authorities on September 17th, 2015. As always, Kadyrow was cracking jokes in his most nonchalant manner.
His foreign guests, however, looked tense. Maybe they were jetlagged. Anything can happen if you went to bed in your native Libya, and woke up in the “Grozny-City” hotel to the loud beat of a song “Why have you became so daring?”  and you don’t understand a thing.
Then your mobile phone rings, and your Libyan relatives in a whisper report to you that your house was taken over by some armed people that don’t look local. They don’t let anyone in, and, by the way, your loyal guards fled.
To sum it up, it’s all a matter of high politics. For us the most important – to get our guys back home.
