I don’t live in Russia anymore, use to. But pretty sure, by the shows, Russia is different now that it used to be before the Soviet Union collapsed. So let’s wait for the Russian to fill us in what’s going on there. I like Russian quisine. I like Russian friendly people, Russian winters. Our nespapers get us to speed about Russian news, about Pussy Rite Riot and their arrest and sentencing to 2 years.

Yes, the trial Pussy Riot – it’s a failure of Putin and the Russian Orthodox Church. In fact, many Christians support Pussy, in contrast to the official church. The government clearly showed that the church has the real power in society… Outside view of the state has been replaced, but inside many of the Soviet. No wonder Putin – comes from the KGB. He suppresses dissatisfied with their political inquisition, and the feelings of believers – a cover. I have mixed feelings about this, but the most powerful – anger, hatred and resentment.

Well, I have mixed feelings too. As many of my collegues were puzzled at what the draw at the bridge in St. Petersburge and the participation of the pregnant one in the Orgy at the museum. But it’s still not the reason to sentence them. The church started the case and then, when it saw it went to far up to 7 years, began to renege on its request.

I watched a tv show that the guy was going to the coldest part of Russia. It was so cold, but so cold, that his camera and cell phone broke because of the cold weather; they showed some cities, some Russian fashion… that was really interesting!

Yes, it’s cold in Russia.. in winter. But it’s tolerable. The winds are not strong. And fashionable fur coats are available. Russian winter is awesome. Winter’s coming, hooray!! Hopefully the cold one this year ;)

Most of Christian Russians have the opinion that these bitches should be  publically executed in order  to have the glory they seeked.
