Russian newspaper's poll.

A year after, what is Donald Trump for us?

* Hope for better relations between nations 8%
* Hero of scandals and jokes 33%
* Piece of nothing 59%

The newspaper is a right-leaning business-populist outlet.

Milos Zeman re-elected as Czech president

2018-01-27

.. Results from 98.74 percent of voting districts showed Zeman won 51.64
percent of the vote to 48.35 percent for challenger Jiri Drahos, who conceded
defeat before all ballots were counted.

.. His pro-Russian stance and support for closer ties with China. ..

...

That is a pleasant surprise. He easily won the first round, but most of the
analysts did not expect his victory in the second one. Mr. Zeman is known as a
tough guy, euroskeptic and Russia's friend, - my greetings to the Czechs.

And f*ck the EU one more time.

Some vicious Atlanticist media label him as 'Putin ally', which is their usual
exaggeration. Zeman is an independent pro-Czech. The morons label 'pro-Russia'
any sane one who is not being full of animosity towards Russia.

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny arrested during protests

Matthew Chance, Mary Ilyushina, Sheena McKenzie | January 28, 2018

.. Navalny, a longtime critic of President Vladimir Putin, has called for
nationwide protests and for supporters to boycott what he calls rigged
presidential elections, set to take place March 18.

Coordinating protests in the largest country in the world by land mass is no
small task, and the Russian Interior Ministry said events coordinated with
local authorities were held in 46 places.

Demonstrations have ranged from gatherings of a few dozen in remote areas to
about a thousand people in central Moscow -- which the Interior Ministry
described as an "uncoordinated mass demonstration." ..

Elsewhere, there were 600 demonstrators in Russia's third-most populous city,
Novosibirsk, and 550 protesters in Nizhny Novgorod in western Russia, the
ministry said. ..

...

For the whole Russia, about 5000 (cumulatively in all cities and towns) took
part in the protesting street meetings in response to the Navalny's calls
for a nationwide protest January 28.

Mr. Navalny was a promising opposition figure about 5 years ago, but since
then many of his former fans became disappointed in him. Two main things have
spoiled his political activist career. First is abuse of unfounded or fake
accusations against those whom he branded as corruptionaries. Really, in the
very recent years, in the heat of his anti-corruption activism, he made
inter alia some bold accusations that turned out to be easily verifiable as a
[deliberate] fiction. Second is his appeal for support to 'the west'. He
wrote articles for the Atlanticist MSM calling to impose sanctions on Russia,
also he cooperated with some 'toxic' persons (known as those who represent an
ugly agenda). Besides that, many dislike the fact that Navalny intentionally
uses provocative tactics on the regular basis, - by unnecessary violation of
regulations in order to make himself detained [for a short time] by the police
thus producing 'dramatic footage' for the mass media.

...

It's notable, the top American officials refrained from commenting on it
as well as the most of the West European top officials. The only one who
made a statement in support for Navalny was British clown Boris Johnson.
In response to him, the clerks of the Russian embassy to Britain wrote a
due comeuppance <https://www.rusemb.org.uk/fnapr/6378>

Loss of the Atlanticist interest to the intra-Russian politics would be a
nice gift to the Russian democracy, because those irksome wannabes in
Russia who rely mainly on the foreign support (and who have absolutely no
chance anyway) would less get under feet of those politicians who rely on
the grassroots support from 'the demos'.

PUTIN TAKES ITALY

PAULR | MARCH 11, 2018

.. It defies the normal liberal observer's sense of reason that .. Britons
could vote for Brexit, Americans for Trump, Germans for the AfD, and the
like. It follows that there must be some external force which is to blame.

In the current climate, that means Russia. And so it is that the successful
performance of the Five Stars Movement in this week's Italian general
election is being put down to the malign influence of Russia, and being
debated more in terms of what it means for the allegedly relentless rise of
Russian power than in terms of Italian domestic politics.

Hot off the mark was former American ambassador to the United Nations
Samantha Power, who tweeted on Monday that, 'In the past 2 years, Putin has
won elections in the United States, Austria, Czechia & now Italy. He's also
delivered Brexit & performed well in France & Germany.' And today, the
Sunday edition of the New York Times contains an op-ed
<http://clck.ru/CxE7J> by regular columnist Frank Bruni entitled 'Italy has
dumped America. For Russia'.

Five Stars' performance, writes Bruni,

was characterized as the triumph of populism. But it was a triumph for
Putin, too: proof that many Italians have jilted and replaced us - with
Russia.

When they cast their votes, Italians were, of course, not thinking of their
country's own internal problems, issues relating to large-scale immigration
from North Africa, or anything like that ..

...

Since the Perverted Left cannot recognize its bankruptcy in a honest way,
they seek someone else to blame for. The Perverted Left is not actually a
pro-socialist thing like the silly rightards blame it, the Perverted Left is
tightly associated with powerful elites and corporate interests. And they
have powerful tools to support their agenda by making things up.
