00 petersburg 030516

____________________________

The Petropavlovsk Fortress (Петропа́вская кре́пость: Petropavlovskaya Krepost) is the original citadel of St Petersburg, founded by Tsar Pyotr I Alekseyevich Veliki on 16/27 May 1703, and built to the designs of Domenico Trezzini from 1706-40. In the early 20th century, the tsarist government still used it as a prison. During the February Revolution, on 27 February/12 March, rebel troops stormed it and freed the prisoners, replacing them with arrested tsarist officials. During the opening of the October Revolution, on 25 October/7 November, the cruiser Avrora fired on the island, but only registered two hits. Nevertheless, the fort quickly surrendered to the Bolsheviks. in 1924, it became part of the State Museum of St Petersburg History. Most graves of Russian rulers from Pyotr I Alekseyevich Veliki to Aleksandr III Aleksandrovich (except for Pyotr II Alekseyevich and Ivan VI Antonovich) are in the Petropavlovsk Cathedral, within the fortress battlements. In 1998, the bodies of the family and entourage of Tsar St Nikolai II Aleksandrovich were laid to rest in one of the cathedral’s chapels.

7 December 2015. Our History… It’s ALL Ours or NONE of It Is Ours!

______________________________

The most popular portion of military parades in Sov times were the marchers wearing historical uniforms. These guys are wearing Red Army uniforms of the Civil War era. That’s still the most popular part of contemporary Russian military parades. Our history is of a seamless piece… it’s all ours… or NONE of it is ours. Ponder that…

7 November 2015. Glory to the REAL Heroes! The Patriot Fighters of Novorossiya… FOR Holy Rus… AGAINST Godless Neoliberal America!

00 glory to the heroes novorossiya 051115

_______________________________

This is a group of patriot fighters in the DNR last year. Russell Bentley (“Texas”… pronounced “TEH-khas” by Russians… the same as it is in Spanish!), an American volunteer, is standing on the extreme left. These men, not fictive Russian forces, held back the American-backed Uniate terrorist mob and defeated them in Debaltsevo earlier this year, all without the deployment of any Russian military units. Russia didn’t want to get involved (it wanted a “federal” solution in the Ukraine). However, the defeat of the junta militants by the patriot forces put paid to that. No one knows what’s going to happen after the collapse of the Ukrainian non-state. NO ONE. Shall it become the “Southwestern Federal District” of the Russian Federation? Shall there be a rump Ukraine (within the borders of the 1918 UNR)? Shall Poland, Hungary, and Romania seize disputed lands in the Far West? No one knows. However, one thing IS certain… the actions of the patriot forces not only ground the pro-American Uniate/schismo offensive to a halt, they showed that the American “hyperpower” is nothing but Anglo bullshit and windy boasting. It has NO reality whatsoever.

Glory to the REAL heroes!

00 dnr. donetsk pr. motorola and givi. 13.05.15

______________________________

“Motorola and Givi… Heroes of Novorossiya”. This is the first postage stamp issued by the DNR, it portrays two of the most charismatic combat leaders in the patriot army, who have the call-signs “Motorola” and “Givi”. They guys kick Galician Uniate hillbilly ass. Full stop. They’re two of the most loved leaders in the army.
