The Konev Statue at Least Looked Like Ivan Konev

Contemporary Czech art is a parody and a tragedy in one…

The same people, who removed the statue of the Soviet commander, Ivan Konev built a statue of Marie Therese, an eighteenth century Habsburg empress that is known for abolishing serfdom. The Prague elite always had a strange fondness for monarchy and feudalism. Several political projects that arose from Prague had members of noble families as figureheads. It is, I guess, a romantic escape into simpler times before modernity for them.

However, aesthetically, the Commies that raised the statue of Ivan Konev had more sense for realism, and whatever the contemporary shit is…

THE EMPRESS SWALLOWED MORE THAN $100,000 OF THE MUNICIPAL BUDGET

Somebody is playing a cruel joke on the people of Prague, bombing the city with shitty art. Remember the monument to Vlasovite soldiers in Řeporyje Prague. The bloody fuck?

Figurines pissing on Czechia, another madness in Prague…

A Change of Course

This used to be the best Ukraine blog you have ever read…

But not anymore, I realised that my most read posts do not involve Ukraine at all. The most read posts involve the Czech Republic and Facebook censorship. And therefore, I realised that I should dedicate my posts to curious information about a variety of things. Sometimes, the simplest post, involving a headline and a photo can go madly viral.

And another point I contemplated was how much personally do I want to spend on a post. And here is what I came up with, one minute! I have long limited my word count to somewhere around 300 words. And this is the format my blog shall from now take. Short, glossy, interesting and hard hitting information I find on the internet, with links, charts, photos, memes. Related to my home region of Eastern Europe but not necessarily. Comments can be made in the comments section…

Anders Åslund Discovers Sorosyata

Sorosyata porosyata is a Ukrainian term that labels people, who have entered politics through NGOs funded by the American philanthropist, George Soros…

And now it has been discovered by Anders Åslund. 😂

I first heard it at Tetyana Montyan’s YouTube channel but some people seem to trace it elsewhere…

Because you know, Ukrainians have no agency and apparently can’t think for themselves.

The Chronicle of “Putler did Nuffin, he Must Leave!”

Left headline: “Russia asks USA for just a little bit more food.” (1999) Right headline: “Russia fed half of the World.” (2018)

Putin literally broke the food dependency Russia inherited from the late USSR. Food sanctions, and the “import replacement programs”, which aim to replace imports with domestic industrial production are the most important development in Russia in the last 30 years…
