    Are Jack Dorsey, who has lied to Congress, and Mark Zuckerberg, who has no love for freedom, democracy, and the Constitution, Russian assets? President Donald Trump was accused of being a Russian asset because Moscow’s operatives tried to influence American opinion by buying a few thousand dollars of Facebook ads while fake Twitter accounts planted dubious stories. So how are Twitter and Facebook not meddling in our elections by suppressing a major American newspaper’s URL for a story deemed harmful to one candidate in a presidential election? If there ever was any doubt that the social media tech giants Twitter...
  • Anyone have any idea who that Moscow widow was, who handed Hunter Biden $3.5 million?

    When Hunter Biden took that $3.5 million in money transfers from Yelena Baturina, Russia's richest woman, the media lapsed into sudden incuriosity, very bizarre, given that it spent four years yelling about President Trump and his supposed "Russian collusion." Here was real Russian collusion and the blue-checks went blue-screen. Miranda Devine at the New York Post has some excellent observations on that here. The corruption watchers in the U.S. government, though, didn't -- bells and alarms went off -- which is why a record of this activity, obtainable by the Senate in its damning interim report, is there at all. According to the New York Post:...

    Police in Moscow, Idaho, arrested three people Wednesday for violating social distancing rules as their church sang hymns and Bible psalms outdoors — an event held, in part, to protest the city mayor’s mask mandate, which runs to January 2021. Officers arrested Gabriel Rench, Rachel Bohnet, and Sean Bohnet, according to Moscow Report, a local independent news outlet. A video uploaded to social media shows Bohnet, a local music teacher, and his wife telling officers they refused to comply with an inaudible order. Moscow Report says the apparent infraction is that they refused to show identification. Footage of the couple’s...

    About $40,770,000 (3 billion rubles) are donated by sponsors and parishioners every year for the construction of Orthodox churches in Moscow, said State Duma Deputy Vladimir Resin, the curator of the 200 Program, which aims to build enough churches in the capital so that everyone has one within walking distance. The largest benefactor and donor is the people, Muscovites, the residents of the capital’s districts,” Resin said during a tour of churches under construction in northwestern Moscow a few days ago, reports Interfax-Religion. “They have a need for spiritual development, for preserving the traditional foundations of their families, for transforming...

    The U.S. fast food giant opened its first chain in Moscow on this day 30 years ago, in the final months of the Soviet Union. McDonald’s opened the doors of its first restaurant in Russia 30 years ago, on Jan. 31, 1990. With 900 seats, it was the largest McDonald’s in the world at the time. Muscovites started queuing at 4:30 a.m. for their chance to get a taste of the famous American fast food. McDonald’s sold 34,000 burgers on its first day — smashing the burger chain’s previous first-day record of 9,100. Around 27,000 Russians applied to work at...

    “The Poet and the Lady” is an exhibition devoted to the unlikely friendship between the Russian poet Andrei Voznesensky and American First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy. The exhibition is at the Voznesensky Center, a relatively new addition to the Moscow museum scene, which has the mission of not just telling the story of Andrei Voznesensky, but the entire “Thaw” era in the 1960s. The Voznesensky Center also promotes contemporary culture and art and highlights its connection to Voznesensky’s generation. “The Poet and the Lady” is displayed in several halls, each devoted to certain aspects of the Voznesensky-Kennedy relationship. The first hall,...

    Moscow State University is in discussions with Syria to open a branch in Damascus, the state-run TASS news agency reported Sunday, citing the university’s rector. Viktor Sadovnichy’s remarks confirm reports last week that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has allocated land in the Syrian capital to build a Russian university. As Syrian government forces reclaimed the upper hand in the country’s almost nine-year civil war, Russia has unveiled a series of commercial and relief projects to solidify its foothold there. The Syrian Education Ministry added Russian as an optional second foreign language in schools after English or French in 2014. More...

    Yegor Zhukov was tired of giving interviews. So instead of using the main entrance to an event in his honor, where a television crew was waiting for him, he slipped past a security guard and headed for a side door. He didn’t go unnoticed. “Please, young man, follow the rules,” the guard ordered, running after him. Zhukov, a 21-year-old politics student and popular libertarian YouTube blogger, doesn’t particularly like rules. Or rather, he explains, he doesn’t mind rules in principle, it’s just that he grew up in a country with a big government that uses them to infringe on the...

    Nobody watching President Barack Obama talking to President Dmitry Medvedev to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and addressing a university audience could have failed to notice that Moscow was not a pre-Presidential election Berlin audience. The first was courteous, the second displayed no emotion and the third was cool. No chemistry there; added to which his visit was overshadowed by Michael Jackson's funeral. The main achievement was a missile deal that favoured Moscow, which did not go down well with his political opponents at home and has yet to receive the Senate's fiat. But there was also agreement reached to allow...

  • Russia's Economy: Putin’s Stagnation Now Longer and Deeper than Brezhnev’s

    Over the last 11 years, Russia has suffered two devaluations of the ruble and the most prolonged decline in the standard of living in this century, with the economy at the start of this year only 8.8 percent larger than that in 2008. That means that the Russian economy has grown on average 0.88 percent a year, just over a third of the world economy’s growth rate, roughly half of the growth of the American GDP and nine percent of the growth of the Chinese economy over this period, official statistics show. Not only is this period of stagnation now...
