    I think this quote is deserving of my old gran's comment.

    You are probably even too dumb to understand this "RUSSIAN" joke

    A joke going around among Russians these days has President Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev waking up in the Kremlin in 2023 with a vicious hangover.
    Putin says to Medvedev: "Which of us is president and which of us is prime minister today?"
    "I don't remember," Medvedev replies. "I could be prime minister today."
    "Then go fetch some beer," Putin says.

    By the way, there are a million jokes about Putin's puppy Medvedev....just wonder why?

    I saw the post and then realised it was Backspin posting; only he could ever think that Medvedev was really in charge during this time. Nev had it right on the other thread: he's a bit thick but also loves the attention like Dragonfly does.

    He's on the payroll or, just as likely, so brainwashed and so old that he's still fearful that they'll come and get him and send him to 340 years hard labour in Siberia for saying the wrong thing.

    I believe he has young children, so he can't be that old . . . plus the Gulags were a Russian version of Club Med

    My gran's sister's husband was from Hungary and escaped to the UK in the late 40s/early 50s; he died the other year, 92 years old, but he always wanted to return to Budapest to see his family before he died.

    Sadly, despite all our promises that he would be ok, he never even left England in all his time here because the fear that "the Russians would get him" if he went back never left him.

    Having travelled extensively in Eastern Europe, this kind of story isn't uncommon...

    Yes, absolutely. The general dislike and distrust of Russia and Russians is evident everywhere

    Not every leader can be so strong in his leadership like e.g. GWB, he surely did not need any string-pullers, just daily advice from the Almighty. Pity, that the world (and his country) could not enjoy him being in "power" few more years...

    I'm just pointing out the facts. Go to Wikipedia and see. Dmitri Medvedev was the head of state

    But this is the first time in history in mainstream media , where we just pretend that someone else was the head of state , even though it isn't actually true.

    Oh but Medvedev was just a lackey. Yeah. Lets just all just go by who we think was pulling the levers and call them the head of state.

    Dick Cheyney was the US president in 2004 to 2008. Didn't you know ?

    Hillary Clinton was the brains in the first Obama term. Let's call her the first female president

    You've never said a single thing positive about Russia so it's the same thing. You challenge someone else for not being objective when you are just the same. It's just you are on the other team.

    Whether it was the Mongols, the Ottomans, the Swedes, Napoleon ,the imperial Germans , then the British , then the Nazis, now the USA, every big empire of the day , finds a reason to hate Russia , so they can relieve them of some territory.

    Some of us just know this. We know that its all just pawns in a great power imperial expansion. We know it's all propaganda and bullshit. But you and your ilk believe the propaganda and are swept up in it. Just like all the aforementioned pawns of the various great powers through history.

    I don't know about you , but I don't want my kids to be part of this history.

    If you support the demonization of great powers , then you are going along with war. Just like the China thread and the demonization of China. Where are you going to draw the line ? After we get pushed all the way to a war front with Russia or China , are you gonna say "oh hey I don't support this war". Well then it's far too late. So I'm drawing the line here , and calling out ALL of this great power demonization bullshit.

    Remains of 3,000 of Napoleon’s soldiers found in mass grave show signs of starvation.

    About 675,000 men of Napoleon's Grand Army set out for Moscow to conquer Russia in June 1812, looting and pillaging along the way. By the time of the retreat from Moscow in September, the army, which had swelled to 900,000 along the way, was reduced to 100,000. When the retreating troops reached Vilnius in Lithuania, Napoleon's Grand Army was not so grand anymore: they had been further reduced to about 50,000 vermin-bitten, diseased, cold, and hungry men and women with provisions for 40 days. Now a new study on the remains of 3,000 of Napoleon’s soldiers found in a mass grave has revealed they were starving when they died.

    Ask me about Kremlin architecture - beautiful. Simply stunning.
    (There, now you can never say that I have nothing positive to say about Russia)

    It's odd, though, coming from someone who has made gross generalisations his schtick - you.

    Oh dear . . . the work 'butthurt' springs to mind.

    No, dear socal . . . facts ad the truth are far better than being objective or subjective. You lie and make up your own facts time and again . . . that's neither being objective nor subjective, it's simply flat-out lying.

    Navalny probably self administered the Novachok to make Vlad look bad. I could just see that as a potential discussion between Klon and Oh.

    Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny is out of a coma, hospital says

    Berlin (CNN)Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny is out of a medically induced coma, the German hospital where he is being treated said in a statement on Monday.


    Navalny "is being weaned off mechanical ventilation" and "is responding to verbal stimuli," Berlin's Charite Hospital said. "It remains too early to gauge the potential long-term effects of his severe poisoning," the hospital added.

    Navalny, a critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, became sick from suspected poisoning on a flight to Moscow from the Siberian city of Tomsk last month.


    The German government said that tests on Navalny showed "unequivocal evidence" of the use of Novichok, a Soviet-era chemical nerve agent.
