    Russia calls on the U.S. to drop the idea of holding the Sea Breeze 2021 multi-national naval military drills in the Black Sea. The Russian embassy in the United Statesd left the respective statement on Twitter. "The large scale and clearly aggressive nature of Sea Breeze drills do not meet the real security challenges in the Black Sea region. They increase risks of unitended incidents. They welcome the militarist views in Kyiv. We decisively urge the U.S. and their allies to refuse from training in military actions in the Black Sea", reads the message. According to the Russian diplomats, "the...

    Moscow, May 14, Interfax - The number of abortions dropped to about 450,000 in Russia in 2020, Russian Deputy Health Minister Oleg Salagai said. "About 450,000 abortions were performed in 2020. About half of those numbers were performed at the women's initiative," Salagai said at a church congress on social service on Friday. "This is almost 35% less than five years ago," he said. More than 200,000 women received pre-abortion counseling, and about 49,000 of them had a change of heart last year, Salagai said. The deputy minister said earlier that 523,000 abortions were performed in Russia in 2019.

    Three Idaho churchgoers who were arrested last fall for not wearing masks at an outdoor service are suing city authorities for violating their constitutional rights. The Thomas More Society filed a lawsuit this week on behalf of Gabriel Rench, Sean Bohnet, and Rachel Bohnet against the City of Moscow, Idaho, as well as the city’s supervisor, police chief, prosecuting attorneys, and the arresting police officers. Rench and the Bohnets made national news last September when approximately 300 people assembled outdoors to sing psalms in front of city hall in Moscow, a town of approximately 25,000 people about 80 miles south...

    When Gabriel Rench recounts being arrested in front of city hall in Moscow, Idado, while singing hymns with his church last September, one detail especially continues to irk him. “They literally took my hymn book away from me and proceeded to handcuff me,” Rench, 41, said of the officers, who then led him away to the county jail, where he remained for several hours. Moscow, a town of about 25,000 people approximately 80 miles south of Spokane, Washington, made national news last fall when local police arrested three people and cited five others for attending a “peaceful protest” against the...

Vladimir Marugov was found dead in the sauna after his partner fled through a window in the outdoor hut and notified police about the attack some 25 miles west of the capital, the Moscow Times reported.

    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...

    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...
