    This is the Soviet soldier found alive 30 years after dying in Afghanistan By Blake Stilwell Aug. 03, 11:08 AM Shortly after the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, the Russian 101st Motorized Rifles were caught in a firefight with the Mujahideen near the city of Herat. A young soldier, 20-year-old Bakhretdin Khakimov, was wounded in the fighting, lost on the battlefield, and presumed dead. Until now. Bakhretdin Khakimov in 1980 and now. Khakimov was a draftee from Samarkand who had only been in the Red Army a short time when he was injured in Herat Province, near Shindand. Some 30 years...

    While the mainstream news media hunts for evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, the public record shows that Democrats have willfully used Moscow disinformation to influence the presidential election against Donald Trump and attack his administration.The disinformation came in the form of a Russian-fed dossier written by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. It contains a series of unverified criminal charges against Mr. Trump’s campaign aides, such as coordinating Moscow’s hacking of Democratic Party computers.Some Democrats have widely circulated the discredited information. Mr. Steele was paid by the Democrat-funded opposition research firm Fusion GPS with money from a Hillary Clinton backer. Fusion...
  • Scarborough: Sean Spicer sounds “like an old Soviet propagandist”

    Give Joe Scarborough credit. Just when we were getting bored with all the Trump/Nazi analogies, Joe has come up with a new one. On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough compared Trump press secretary Sean Spicer to an old Soviet spokesman and propagandist. Scarborough’s beef was that Spicer had supposedly said that the meeting of Trump campaign people including Donald, Jr. and the Russians was “just about adoptions.” Joe called that a “lie.” But have a look at the screenshot below, showing what Spicer actually said.

    Never-before-seen information reveals Reagan's “supersecret investigation” into the shooting and wounding of the pope.Contrary to what “pragmatists” in U.S. government agencies concluded, top officials with the Soviet Union were behind the 1981 assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II, a biographer of Ronald Reagan told The Daily Signal in an exclusive interview. Paul Kengor, a Grove City College political science professor and author, has acquired what he calls never-before-seen information about the Reagan administration’s “supersecret investigation” into the shooting and wounding of the pope. The information details the role of the Soviet GRU, the Russians’ brutal foreign military intelligence unit,...

    Orthodox Church pilgrimages with prayers and wreath-placing ceremonies take place every year “in memoriam” of those who sought freedom at all costs and did not wish to live under the Soviet boot across the border from their national roots Political elites have used social engineering to control masses of people and territories over the millennia. They have redrawn borders and moved tribes and herded people into harsher environments, not ideally suitable for human habitation and agriculture; they have sent humans to occupy already heavily populated areas through invasion, conquering them, destroying the local inhabitants’ religion in the process, and forcing...

    Acclaimed Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko, whose work focused on war atrocities and denounced anti-Semitism and tyrannical dictators, has died. He was 84... Yevtushenko gained notoriety in the former Soviet Union while in his 20s, with poetry denouncing Josef Stalin. He gained international acclaim as a young revolutionary with "Babi Yar," the unflinching 1961 poem that told of the slaughter of nearly 34,000 Jews by the Nazis and denounced the anti-Semitism that had spread throughout the Soviet Union... Until "Babi Yar" was published, the history of the massacre was shrouded in the fog of the Cold War...

    With 68 percent of all Americans believing that Hitler killed more people than Stalin, with only a little over half of Millennials considering communism to be a problem, and with American youth recently showing an interest in socialism, public opinion has undergone significant changes in recent years. The Epoch Times believes it’s worth examining the impact of communism—on the arts and culture today and through history—in order to understand these developments better.People naturally look for a path to follow. During times ancient and modern, human beings have looked for a way forward to become healthier, happier, and better in all...
  • Russia builds Reichstag replica for teens to attack at a patriot theme park near Moscow [tr]

    The Russian military is building a replica of Berlin's Reichstag building as a playground for teenagers to attack at a patriotic theme park. Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu, who made the announcement Wednesday, said the replica at the Patriot Park just outside Moscow will be smaller than life size. The images of Soviet Army soldiers hoisting the red flag over the Reichstag in May 1945 have been iconic in Russia, and speaking at parliament, he added to lawmakers' applause that the idea is for Yunarmia members 'to storm a specific location, not something abstract'.

    As we look back tomorrow at the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Soviet Union, an important question should be raised: could the USSR actually have won the Cold War? Or maybe a better question: at least survived? That was something we asked Professor Tom Nichols of the U.S. Naval War College and Harvard University back in 2014.

When the Soviet Union imploded, when the Berlin Wall came down and Soviet communism came to a screeching halt -- communism did not. Soviet communism did. But communism didn't lose anything. Communism just kept right on going. They found a new home in the environmental movement and they've been off to the races. Many people are laboring under a misconception that with the fall of Soviet communism, we also saw the defeat of communism in...
  • Russia Successfully Tests Stealth NUKE TRAIN: Blends In w/Locomotives (travels 1500 miles a day)

    Daily Mail UK ^ | 14:59 EST, 23 November 2016
    Russia is developing a secret nuke train, which can travel 1,500 miles in a day towards Putin's enemies before launching rockets. The trains, packed with ballistic missiles, will be disguised as ordinary passenger or freight trains, making them virtually impossible to identify. Chilling test footage shows the trains can be stopped in their tracks at a moment's notice to deploy the huge rocket launchers. It sounds like something from a James Bond film, but the trains are one step closer to being put into use, following a successful test launch on missiles for the Barguzin 'railway-based combat rocket system', carried...

    Our ancestors made America great, and so shall we, again In the Soviet Union, a.k.a. the Evil Empire, over 90 percent of eligible citizens voted in national elections, of which over 90 percent voted for the members of their ruling clique. All the candidates were government-approved, and national propaganda (all Soviet main-stream media) were 100 percent in favor of those whom the ruling clique wanted to get elected. Although formally a democracy (“People’s Democracy” was sometimes used to describe it), the above insidious arrangement was the main instrument in the hands of the Soviet ruling clique with which to decide...

    As Hitler's troops withdrew from Poland in 1945, Stalin's Red Army advanced towards Berlin. Instead of liberation, the Soviet troops raped and pillaged as they followed the retreating Nazis.  In January 1945, as the war continued, French authorities sent Dr Madeleine Pauliac to Moscow to assist with the efforts to repatriate any French prisoners of war discovered by the Soviets.

    Before dawn on June 22, 1941, German bombers began to rain destruction down on a swath of Soviet cities from Leningrad to Sevastopol. It was the beginning of Operation Barbarossa, the largest military operation in the history of the world. By the end of the day, three million German soldiers and their allies crossed the Soviet border, inaugurating the bloodiest phase of World War II. The invasion also brought to a bloody conclusion 20 years of secret cooperation between Germany and the Soviet Union. While Soviet-German military cooperation between 1922 and 1933 is often forgotten, it had a decisive impact...

    Janna Sundeyeva still remembers life in the Soviet Union, where stores in remote regions would lack meat for months at a time and toilet paper had to be snatched up quickly on the rare occasions it appeared. But the minor indignities paled in comparison to what happened to her grandfather: He had the chance to come to America in 1929, but he opted to stay, sensing an economic thaw. Seven years later, Sundeyeva says, he was arrested and never heard from again. Sundeyeva immigrated to San Francisco from Moldova in 1994, and now she and her husband run a Russian-language...
