Kremlin's propaganda outlet RT is sending a seasonal "gift" of chocolate Salisbury Cathedral.

Svetlana Gulaieva from TV Rain (a Russian independent TV channel), wonder how much it cost to eat.

I think Svetlana wonder if it is the "ultimate price".
One of the commentar to Svetlana is Подарите им в ответ флакон от Nina Ricci, и пускай они думают.
"Give them a Nina Ricci bottle in return, and let them think." :)

Some more humour from Russia...
The Russian Defense Ministry presented a humorous calendar for 2019
https://rg.ru/2018/12/25/minoborony-rf-predstavilo-iumoristicheskij-kalendar-na-2019-god.html
Next to the name of the month are printed army jokes dedicated to the types of troops and weapons.
For example, January is decorated with the image of the mobile missile system of the Strategic Missile Forces and the caption: "Delivery of goods to anywhere in the world."
February is a Tu-95MS long-range aviation aircraft flying above the clouds, which, according to NATO, is called "Bear", which corresponds to its features - slow, but very formidable.
The caption reflects the essence of the picture: "Russian "Bears" don't hibernate in the winter."

Putin's addition to all of his dachas (he has about 20), a new summer house that is a sumptuous Finnish Art Nouveau manor.
Вилла Селлгрена, Villa Sellgren, Lihaniemi peninsula near Viborg close to Russia’s border with Finland.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Villa_Sellgren
48 hectars with caretakers house 3000 square meters, heliport, guest quarters 1500 square meters, the Villa Sellgren 754 square meters and leisure area 1500 square meters.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrIsXKdjZdo&feature=youtu.be&t=413
Not bad for a Russian president with an average yearly salary of about $112,000...
So how can Putin afford all these datchas?

It's quite interesting that Rossia 1 and Fox News use the same footage when illustrating the problems with Trump's Wall.
Some says "It's almost as if they are colluding..."

I have no idea. I don't think Rossia 1 and Fox News know either.
Today I don't think any news outlets, Russian or American or many other countries for that matter, care so much about the origin of photos.
Russian media for instance, can easily illustrate Ukrainian incidents with old pics from the Middle East. And even old Vietnam pics from the 60's :)

Since Rossia 1 uses fake photos, now we know Faux News uses fake photos! :)

The photos is most likely not fake. But it could be arranged.
It's so funny though that the same photos is used to illustrate something that Rossia 1 and Fox News have totally different stories about.
Which make me think of some American media like FOX News, actually Russian media as well, that cover the story about the so called "no-go zones" and the immigration problems in Stockholm:)

So much for the Fox/Russia collusion belief.
I don't believe there is a Fox/Russia collusion.
However some can do.
Reading news today has become very complicated today.
How does one know they are trustworthy?
So called un-biased news doesn't exist.
Unfortunately Russia have become masters of deceiving news.
Or perhaps I have become Russophobian.

Faux news is largely Russian propaganda.

It follows Putin's wishlist almost as much as Prez. Gump.

They fall in the same trap as Trump does.
Remember that the Russian media today is almost all under the control of the Russian state (read Putin).
And doing all what they can to manipulate US minds with help from the Internet Research Agency.
It's so weird that Trump doesn't realize that...
And Fox News of course follow their master's voice.
But calling that collusion...
No, it's sheer ignorance.

I don't know about that as there are certainly a few totally ignorant persons here (even some who consider themselves experts in many fields, and often brag about it, but can't hold a candle up to their own self assessments). ;-)

Neither is Fox under Trump.

I thought it was the reverse, Fox is where Trump gets his idea's from.
In the latest fiasco, it was Fox that changed Trumps mind, and you ended up with the shutdown. https://www.politico.com/story/2018/12/20/trump-budget-reversal-1071388

Rupert has always wanted to own a government for many decades now, but when we cut him off from that ever happening here so he went O.S. looking for somewhere where he could.

Well we all know where he wound up.

Lets hope he and his sons, stay where he seems to be welcome. He quit here when he was refused permission to take over too many media outlets.

The Russian Bear is angry...
Russia threatens 'retaliatory measures' after EU sanctions launched over Skripal attack
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-46949162
The European Union has put sanctions on senior officials from the Russian military intelligence agency, the GRU, over the Salisbury poisonings.
Four people have been sanctioned - including the head of the GRU, deputy head, and two agents who are believed to have carried out the attack.
After the EU announced its sanctions, Russia's foreign ministry threatened retaliation "against this unfriendly action".
It said the sanctions were adopted under the "pretext" that the pair were involved in the Salisbury attack, but maintained that the accusations against them "do not stand up to scrutiny".
"The information campaign unleashed by the British authorities on this case pursues, first of all, domestic political goals," it said, highlighting the current "crisis" over Brexit.
It also accused the EU of circumventing the United Nations Security Council and taking unilateral action.
Moscow may provide tit-for-tat response to EU’s Skripal case sanctions

Opa!
I don't think Putin and Kremlin like this.
But we around the Baltic Sea does:)
The Baltic States will cut their dependency on the Russian power grid.
