We don’t know what they will

Anti-Putin opposition leader Kasyanov caught in Strasbourg with his pants down and blames Kadyrov (Updated)

I am convinced now that Kadyrov is a political and PR genius. To trap the liberals in their own webs, he has posted on his Instagram account a video taken by a hidden camera of Kasyanov, an apparatchik from so called “PARNAS” party, in Strasbourg meeting with the official representatives from NATO countries to receive money to conduct anti-government operations in Russia. As you can see it’s just an art,

Liberals attack Ramzan Kadyrov, Putin and sovereignty of Russia, by Scott

  “As a patriot of Russia, and as a foot soldier of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, I will never play  along with the murderers and traitors of my country. There is scarcely a single rational and self-respecting man who will conduct dialogue with those who see it as immoral to love their Motherland and to serve her devotedly.” R. Kadyrov You have never heard about this profession. Untold number of

Since Maidan in Kiev two years ago, American life has become a reality show from the Discovery channel. Every day Americans are discovering something new.

Russian Humor January 3rd, 2016 by Scott

To those Saker commentators who detected “anger” in my sitreps, I can only say that you, Ladies and Gents, sound like my psychiatrist: “Scott, what are we going to do with your anger?” One day, I will tell you the story of how we met. Since he comes from one of those countries “civilized” and “liberated” by the West, I explained it to him in no uncertain terms, and he

Russian Humor for December 27th, by Scott

Russia 1. Russia stands, has been standing, and will be standing; for all others, survival is optional. 2. Russia’s Ministry of Defense Humor: SYRIA: Pentagon stated that last month the US was destroying only profitable terrorist facilities. Were earlier destroyed only unprofitable ones? The West 1.

Scott’s Collection of Russian Humor (Hilarious – MUST READ!!)

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.
