To what purpose?

Medical breakthrough - new drug brings dramatic relief to Russophobia sufferers.
There is new hope in the fight against a disease ravaging western political and media elites.
The new pill, marketed as Sovieta (Hydroantikhokholidone HCI) helps break down an enzyme called Pollacazine which researchers have found in high concentrations in the brains of chronic Russophobia sufferers.

Don't blame me, I voted for Johnson(L) in 2016.

Truth is dangerous... especially when it challenges those in power.

“In the EU countries, the flashmob #sorry launched by residents of Germany, Sweden, Denmark and other European countries has spread. The aim of the action is for European women to apologize to refugees for their depraved behavior and clothing that forced migrants to commit sexual violence against women.”
That is False.
There is no evidence for the existence of this flashmob.
https://www.stopfake.org/en/fake-russian-story-stokes-anti-immigrant-fears/
As for the #sorry flashmob, searches of Twitter and Instagram turned up nothing like what was described in the article. Moreover, the article does not substantiate a quote from the event’s supposed organizer, identified as “Britta Borg.” Google searches reveal nothing about the action or “Britta Borg,” although Brita Borg was a Swedish pop singer who died in 2010.

Why the Western Feminists aren't attacking this primitive anti-women belief and attempting to stop its spread. Is the question.

The fake news came from Russia, probably from the Troll Factory in St Petersburg, aimed at Russians where it was spread to numerous Russian-language media sites, including Novye Izvestia, Panorama, E-News, and Russian social media sites like Odnoklassniki.
Why the Eastern Feminists aren't attacking this primitive anti-women belief and attempting to stop its spread. That is the question.
But I think I already know the answer...
Putin and Kremlin endorse fake news to Russian subjects.

The deception of the Russian government can even be exposed at the very highest level. When Vladimir Putin was being interviewed by Oliver Stone Putin showed Oliver Stone footage he claimed showed Russian forces attacking ISIS in Syria. The footage was in fact US footage from Afghanistan:

Still after more than 70 years!
Citing prisoner privacy, Moscow Court upholds a decision not to declassify prison records which could shed light on the death of Swedish diplomat Wallenberg.

A Moscow Court has upheld a decision by the Federal Security Service (FSB) not to declassify prison records which could shed light on the death of Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg.
While working at the Swedish Embassy in Budapest, Wallenberg helped rescue thousands of Jews during World War II. But after the Red Army entered Hungary, he disappeared.
He is believed to have died in 1947 in a prison at the KGB’s Lubyanka headquarters in central Moscow where he was being held on espionage charges

To many Russians the days of Stalin was the "Golden Days".
Russians name Stalin ‘most outstanding’ world figure, Putin ties for second

People who like Joseph Stalin the most of all the actors in the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution now account for 24 percent of Russians, or three times more than the share of 8 percent registered in 1990.

Viral videos promoting the presidential election are popping up online in Russia and nobody is sure who's making them. The breadcrumbs lead back to the Kremlin.
The first, most popular video surfaced on February 16, featuring an average Russian guy waking up in a country beset by gays and black soldiers.
In the video, his character initially plans to skip the March 18 presidential election, but he changes his mind after having a nightmare that shows him the horrible consequences of not going to the polling station: he’s drafted into the army, despite being 52 (and one of the soldiers who delivers the summons is black, for some reason); his son, wearing a red Communist Pioneer neckerchief, asks him for 4 million rubles (almost $18,000) to donate to his school for security guards; and in the kitchen we find an “adopted gay,” because apparently the law now requires families to take in gay men who are dumped by their partners.
The “nightmare” video isn’t Russia’s only viral election video of mysterious provenance
An attractive young woman catches a young man’s eye at a nightclub, and pulls him away to get hot and steamy. Just as the lip lock is getting underway, however, she suddenly asks him if he voted earlier in the day. When he scoffs and says no, she breaks their embrace and walks away, saying she thought he was an adult.
And this one.
A pregnant woman steps into a taxi cab, breathing heavily and moaning in labor pains. She tells the driver to step on it, but leads him to a polling station, not a hospital. She casts her ballot seconds before the clock strikes 8 p.m., when voting ends. It’s still unclear who’s behind this commercial

Elagu Eesti!
Estonia celebrates its 100th birthday today:)
Because their independence can be directly linked to security policy, it may be worth pointing out that Russia was not participating in the celebrations .
On the other hand, both Ukraine and Georgia was!
Thousands of people had gathered at Toompea ,a hill in Tallin and in the park around it to sing in Estonia's 100th birthday.
Exactly at 07.33, at sunrise, the Estonian flag was lifted on the tower, Pikk Hermann (Tall Hermann).
The majority of the audience was singing "Mu isamaa, mu õnn ja rõõm.".

Eat your heart out, Putin!

In the midst of the Olympic Games, the Swedish medalist in Biathlon Sebastian Samuelsson spoke out and urged Biathlon athletes to boycott the World Cup closing in Russia.
Journalists & fans are sick of athletes who say nothing - but when @SebbeSamuelsson spoke out about the lack of a functioning anti-doping program in #Russia he has been hammered and threatened, something which is completely unacceptable to me and to any right-thinking sports fan.

Now the United States athlets spoke out and announce they refuse to attend.

Sebastian Samuelsson commends the United States decision and says that even Canada and the Czech Republic will boycott the WC ending.

The Internet Research Agency (IRA) (Агентство интернет-исследований), also known as Glavset and known in Russian Internet slang as the Trolls from Olgino or kremlebots, is a Russian company, based in Saint Petersburg, that engages in online influence operations on behalf of Russian business and political interests. The agency has employed fake accounts registered on major social networks, discussion boards, online newspaper sites, and video hosting services in order to promote the Kremlin's interests in domestic and foreign policy including Ukraine and the Middle East as well as attempting to influence the 2016 United States presidential election. More than 1,000 paid bloggers and commenters reportedly worked in a single building of the agency in 2015.
Opa:)
Now former IRA manager Agata Burdonova and her husband Dmitry Fyodorov are living in Bellevue, Washington.
In her Social Security application, Agata Burdonova says she is a "Legal Alien Allowed to Work."
On June 15, 2017, Dmitry Fyodorov says he received an employment offer from Facebook.

On August 8, 2017 Fyodorov marries Burdonova.

And possibly more, if Putin and the Russian Oligarchy change the Constitution.

Blin. No need to change the Constitution in Russia.
It says that the president only can rule for 2 consecutive terms in a row.
But Putin has only to step down to beeing like he did last time being a prime minister for 6 years before he is going for the next presidency .
And see to that Medvedev, current prime minister and Putins puppet, will be elected again.
Well I'm sure that Putin can find some other puppet if necessary.
Yevgeny Prigozhin perhaps.
Putin's "cook" and funder of both the Troll factory IRA and the mercenary Wagner group that operated first in Ukraine and now in Syria.

Just showing that Russia has no history nor culture of Rule of Law government.
What I do fine amazing and tragic. Is that much of Western Europe has ceded true control of much of their energy to, pick one. A Russian Tsar, a Russian Commissar, or lawless Putin and the lawless Russian Capitalist Oligarchy.

Russia has a history and culture of Rule of Law government.
The Russian Constitution adopted 1993.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constitution_of_Russia
Very much like other nations constitutions.
Even their law enforcements works the same.
Though with some exceptions.
Freedom of Expression is one of them but perhaps the most violated of human right.
The list of violating that is pretty long...
For instance trying to candidat for presidency is not easy.
In worst cases it's the last thing you ever do...

Russian historical Culture?
Do you know how many they are actually are?
For instance compare Moscow and the Northern Caukasus.
Even Putin have problem to understand their culture.
They their own way to enforce the law and selecting politicians.
The east of the Urals...
Russia is huge and have hundreds of cultures.
So that Russians always select a strong leader is perhaps not so strange.
The fact that several will be oppressed is only statistics in their minds...

Cold war?
The cold and the snow continue to lame Europe.
Airports are closed, motorists are stranded and trains are delayed.
The snow storms over Britain and Ireland from Russia are the worst in nearly 30 years, TT states.
In Britain, the cold is called the "Monster from the East" and now the country is waiting for the storm Emma to pull in with snow, hard winds and traffic disturbances as a result.
The Irish stock exchange was forced to close on Thursday after the Irish government had gone out and warned for continued heavy weather. The stock exchange is also planning to stay closed during the morning when the weather is likely to affect trade, TT writes.
