There is a class of internet personalities (vloggers and bloggers) in Russia that in Russian are called охранители (ochraniteli, lit. “defenders”). They mostly put out patriotic and pro state content. I am a vatnik and I often watch this kind of content…
And for a while, this group of YouTube channels have put out content disparaging Elon Musk, belittling his achievements, and similar. When few channels and blogs do this in unison, it appears like an organised campaign. Entities with money these days do not shed resources on information campaigns because public opinion is everything. Morale must be maintained…
But if Elon Musk is doing it wrong, why then is Roskosmos copying his idea of partially reusable rockets to stay competitive with Musk’s Space X? Don’t get me wrong, I am totally for the proliferation of space technology, and believe that Roskosmos is on the right track with its decoupling from reliance on Kazakhstan’s Baykonur by building the Kosmodrom Vostochny, and now the development of reusable rockets. All power to them…
There is scandal in Lisbon. It became known that the city hall CML, where we are announcing our protests is forwarding all personal information about the organisers of the protests in support of Navalny to the Russian Embassy and the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. We discovered this by accident.
In January, while there was a lockdown, me and two other organisers have announced our protest for the 23, in front of the Russian Embassy via email. We have, as always included our personal information, number of the ID, address, telephone number.
We have first received the usual answer, and then in the spirit of the Covid era an answer from the Portuguese Ministry of Health, where, alongside their recommendations there was also a PDF attached with that personal information that we have provided! That is, they are sharing our personal information.
But that would be OK, nothing surprising, however, from the conversation it is apparent that the letter with the PDF was also forwarded to the Russian Embassy in Portugal and the Russian Foreign Ministry.
The city hall has issued an official apology, having pointed out that this is a common practice surrounding protests that take place near embassies. I hope they were doing this not being aware that they are putting people in danger, but I am not sure they have stopped this practice. We will have to solve it though courts.
LMAO! They are trying to be public figures and don’t think anyone will find their details? Here are some photos from from Pavel Elizarov’s profile, LMAO!
Pavel Latushko is a former minister of culture, former theatre director, and now he is dwelling in Poland in exile. According to the recent interview with Roman Protasevych, he lives in a 3000 euro apartment.
It looks like svidomites have won from Netflix a change of subtitles at the film Brat 2. Now instead of “Ukrainian Nazi Collaborator” it says “Banderite”. But is this a peremoha? While the Western audience does understand a little about Nazi collaboration, it may use Google to find out what Banderite is. They will find Wikipedia…
A Ukrainian [person]: My relative lives in the Urals, Russia. And he asks: “What do you want from America and Biden?! I thought a bit and replied…
I want American military bases on Russian borders. In Lugansk, in Donetsk, in Sevastopol, and in Simferopol. That the US 6th fleet may feel at home.
That the strategic aviation may fly, bombers, fighters, tankers… And that the AWACS may fly over and shit on the heads of enemies.
That US nuclear weapons and the boot of the NATO soldier, to the maximum level, so that Putin may shit himself from the anxiety.
That our military may learn from their military, for a fully fledged alliance and bubble gum. You do not have to fight for us, we can fight already. For us, with us does not matter. We need to become frightening so that one would piss himself just from seeing us.
We need Murican judiciary because our judiciary is comatose.
Also, customs and fiscal policy should be transplanted because ours is comatose.
May American capital enter and with their capitalists, managers, technicians. I have worked with Westerners and I have worked with compatriots. I will say, the Americans, the British, the Canadians are welcome. And our pseudo-proletarian dung should learn from them. Blablala…
I hope dear readers, that you liked this little translation. And would you like to defend Ukraine?
Starting today, we will reduce the distribution of all posts in News Feed from an individual’s Facebook account if they repeatedly share content that has been rated by one of our fact-checking partners. We already reduce a single post’s reach in News Feed if it has been debunked.
Your ass, dear Facebook user is now at the mercy of Facebook fact-checkers, and you might be of the impression that those are impartial people that have the common good in mind.
And do not be mistaken, I believe there are genuine purveyors of misinformation but do not ever believe that the fact-checkers always have good intentions. There will always be bias towards the official line, and that is totalitarian. Read this blog, and you will be informed.
I suggest you only post the mainstream media because despite them being the biggest purveyors of misinformation, they will likely never be censored. But I have a better suggestion, stop using a platform that is likely to censor you over things that should not be censored.
Netflix featured the Russian crime drama Brat 2 on its site, and they have translated a scene where one of the characters asks two Ukrainians if they are banderovites, that is followers of the radical nationalist leader, Stepan Bandera, this way:
It is difficult not to claim that Bandera wasn’t collaborating with the Nazis. However, some in Ukraine are ashamed of this fact apparently. A parliamentarian from the ruling party, Dmytro Hrudin, said that Netflix had no right to do this. He promised they initiate a writing campaign. They can of course do that, but the international public understands why Bandera is hated, and does not even know who Bandera is…
I really wonder how the entire dialogue is translated. I might watch it later tonight…
I will not lie if I say that I was inspired by Anatoly Karlin’s blogroll to write this post but I shall make this a sticky post that will hang here forever, and I will periodically update it as I see fit. It should help you navigate to popular content on this blog, and showcase some of my other work.
What I’m writing:
The best of IR
One of the most shared of my posts is the one that deals with Jakub Janda’s porn photo shoot. The Czechs especially love sharing the hell out of it. Other information on Jakub Janda and European Values in the dossier.
But the most viewed post is actually this case of Facebook censorship that was most shared on Facebook. LMAO!!!
I am creating a dossier of reports on Nazis in Ukraine. Some in the West say this is a Russian disinformation but we have photos, videos, and arguments and they don’t…
Hunter Biden leaks are bringing in considerable traffic this month, despite me being busy over the Summer season and not posting very often. See the posts here and here. This story was literally suppressed by Big Tech before the 2020 election.
The Insomniac Resurrected is not the only blog I am writing. I have a long term interest in how astrology is linked to history, and I am currently writing a compendium of astrological phenomena. At the same time I make some of my ideas available online, on a free blog called Leo’s Mundane AstrologyNotes. With the compendium comes a cartographic expression that is seen in the heading of the blog, the Chart of the Aeons. On the blog you see its crude second iteration, I am currently working on a much more organised, third version. There I try out various theories regarding the celestial formations and the life here on earth. To me this combines my passion for history with something mystical.
There are some posts that I am currently the most proud of but I will add other after review.
The Insomniac Resurrected has a linked YouTube channel. However, for the most part it is just video dump. I am planning to make a number of videos but editing takes time and I do not find any time to give the videos subtitles. If things go currently as they are, the channel will have videos in a variety of languages, that is English, Russian, Ukrainian, and Czech, and none will have any subtitles. Consequently, the viewership will vary. I also fear that my political content will be censored by YouTube, I already received several strikes on videos, especially videos disparaging Banderovites, and the Navalny protests. So far I do not care but was I ever to update my channel more regularly, I would mirror it on other streaming websites.
People are butthurt about my old Youtube video, Nuke Poland, where I do mock Russian accent. So in case it gets deleted, I have posted it to RuTube.
I am useless at embedding videos here on this blog, and have to figure that one out.
I also have a gaming channel, Monkey Realms but I realised I suck at commenting videos, and haven’t updated it in a while. Besides, my inactivity is compounded by being really frustrated with Hearthstone. A great and fun game which is totally not pay to win. I also play modded Skyrim but that has been bugging out on me of late.
I have recently reached Legend in Hearthstone for the first time, literally blasted my way in. Here are some screen shots to save as a memory. It is ironic that on my gaming channel I had a show called Pyroblasted. I might continue the tradition next month.
I’m a Vatnik, and therefore I mostly read Vatnik resources, I also try to avoid pro-Western people, Russophobes, Ukrainian nationalists. I only check out those when researching for my blog…
Ukraine resources (in Russian and Ukrainian)
The Peremogi blog on livejournal is constantly updated by several people, and provides a good digest of Vatnik content and reports on Svidomism. One of the best Ukraine resources, I check it out every day…
Alternativa of Andrey Vajra. I knew about Andrey Vajra for roughly 10 years, ever since I became interested in ethnic issues in Ukraine. Back then he was an anonymous resident of Kiev but he has since moved to St. Petersburg, Russia and does videos disparaging the Ukrainian reality.
Similar to Andrej Vajra is Alexandr Voskoboynikov – now I do not know much about him. I would say from what I could gather, he is that he is native of Odessa, who was jailed for a while in Ukraine and then was exchanged for some Ukrainian soldier by DNR. But I could be wrong.
With 6%, people from the capital of Ukraine, Kiev, lead in the rating of property buyers in the Russian capital, Moscow. Kiev is followed by St. Petersburg, the citizens of which made 3.8% of the buyers. 99% of this property was homes.
