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! I am so proud of him. It takes a fiery Turkish personality to stage such a shitstorm between two NATO members and

Alexandr Skliar – “When war is on your doorstep” (aka “millions”)

Dear friends, This is a song from Skliar’s latest album “Iastreb” (Ястреб, Hawk).  Skliar’s group is called “VA BANK” (ВА-БАНКЪ, or “go bank” or “banco” – when you play for all the money you have).  Check out the music, check out the lyrics (my own translation below) and tell me – do the Neocons realize the magnitude of the storm brewing in the East?  Do they realize that not all

We Will Resist

Rogers III, was awarded the Legion of Merit “for exceptionally meritorious

A musical requiem (of sorts) for those who died in Slaviansk

Warning: the language of war is not a delicate one, nor is the language used in this song.  To those who might be shocked by the kind of “non-normative lexicon” used here by Grebenshchikov, and who clearly have never been anywhere near a Russian military unit, I will say that this is nothing compared to what you could have heard form the defenders of Slaviansk.  As for the message of
