11 December 2016. Our Great Russian Motherland… The Winter Palace in Piter… Yes… That’s a RECENT Pic

Yep… it’s winter before winter in Russia again! It’s ten more days before the official faceoff, but Ol’ Baba Winter is goin’ on strong in the Rodina, as this picture from Piter shows. That’s the Winter Palace… today, the restored palace forms part of the complex of buildings housing the State Hermitage Museum (the official website of the museum complex is here). By the way, nothing in Washington comes even close to the Ermitazh in scope or grandeur… so, all American claims of “exceptionalism”, “indispensability”, and “unique goodness” are nothing but vacuous bullshit. The Ermitazh is the real deal (it was around BEFORE the USA even existed… fancy that)…

6 June 2014. Our Great Russian Motherland. Yalta… Home at Last!

00 Yalta 01. 24.04.14

______________________________

Yalta in the Crimea is home to many Tsarist-era palaces. Now, the Crimea is back home in Russia, where it always belonged. Things went to seed under the Ukraine, as the oligarchs robbed the country blind and gave back nothing in return (and the parasite Uniates siphoned off what little was left). However, rest assured, it’ll be put right, and in short order. It’s Holy Rus, after all…
