    Putin holds address in Sevastopol ahead of anniversary of Crimea reunification with Russia

    Lots of music but The LORD appears at the 39:48 mark. The crowd looks happy and responds enthusiastically. (In Russian, but a translator does kick in)

    Of course they were promised a hot meal, a la Thailand, to attend. No plastic fingers to point though so only 8/10
    A tray full of GOLD is not worth a moment in time.

    Of course. Do you think all are as aware and see the clarity as you?

    Well you clearly don't because you think something so insignificant as another faked Putin soundbite deserves its own thread.

    The LORD doesn't travel with cash to hand out, it keeps his accountants happy, you must be thinking of Liz.

    Upfront? Somebody who demands delivery pays on results. He knows damn well they would have bought Vodka and be asleep in the snow drunk. As they do at parties in Thailand, except change snow to red soil.

    Silly me, sorry, of course he gives them the 500 Roubles AFTERWARDS.

    How could I be so forgetful?

    “Men and women. 20-55 years old. March 3rd, rally/concert ‘For a Strong Russia’ in support of Vladimir Putin. Payment 500 roubles [6],” read an announcement posted on Tuesday on a popular “rent-a-crowd” website.
    Those who answered the advertisement were met near the stadium by a man who identified himself as Rodion. “We’ll all go to the stadium together, then meet back here and you’ll get your money,” he said, before handing out Russian Ecological party flags and scarves. No one present appeared to have any connection to the party. The move was an apparent bid to create the impression of broad support for Putin across Russia’s political spectrum.
    “What difference does it make if I pretend to be an Ecological party member? I mean, I don’t support Putin, either,” said one young man, who refused to give his name. A spokesperson for the Russian Ecological party was not immediately available for comment.

    It's only 6 quid. I'm pretty sure Putin can afford that with all the billions he's got stashed away.
