The famous Russian exhibition centre VDNKh celebrated its 75th anniversary. A wonderful fireworks display capped off the event. Feel the atmosphere…

VDNKh is “Exhibition of Achievements of the People’s Economy” in English… it resumed its Soviet-era name this year. Slowly, but surely, Russia is telling the West to “get rooted” as it returns to the verities of its Tsarist and Red paths. G A Zyuganov has spoken of a “Red Tsar”… I think that he speaks truthfully and prophetically… after all, isn’t V V Putin the “Big Kahuna” amongst statesmen? That’s why the West wants to take him down so badly… unfortunately, none of their leaders are of his stature… silly wabbits.

14 October 2013. Red October Still Lives… Pioneer Ceremony on Red Square

00 Young Pioneers. Moscow RUSSIA. 14.10.13

A boy yawns as he and other children attend a ceremonial initiation into the Union of Pioneer Organisations-Federation of Children’s Organisations (SPO-FDO), the successor to the V I Lenin all-Union Pioneer Organisation, an organisation created in the USSR for children 10-14 years old. The event took place on Red Square in Moscow on 19 May 2013, when the Pioneers celebrated their anniversary. Some 3,000 pioneers took part in the ceremony. As you can see, being “Red” isn’t dead. The Western news media was nowhere in evidence…

4 February 2013. Our Great Russian Motherland… The Celebration of the Victory at Stalingrad

00oa Stalingrad Anniversary. 2013. 03.02.13

Fireworks at the site of the Родина-мать зовёт (Rodina Mat Zovyot: The Mother-Motherland Calls) monument on Mamayev Kurgan in the Hero City of Volgograd. Russia hasn’t forgotten the great victory of Stalingrad… from that point forward, the Red Army was on the counterattack. This was the highwater mark of the Fascist advance. The Red Army didn’t rest until it planted the Victory Banner on the Reichstag. The world is a better place because of the Great Victory… never forget that.
